NWA via St Cloud???

My main man Melvin and I are making a run up to the angle on friday. Now don't get me wrong, I can read a map as good as anybody else, but I'm wondering if any fellow FMers could clue me in to fastest route from St Cloud. Thanks in advance!<P> MM

Mudmulcher: I make the trip out of St cloud 4-5 times a year. I'm not saying this is the shortest way but I prefer this route due to the lack of traffic. Three weeks ago I left Baudette at 120pm and pulled into Sauk Rapids at 535pm with a quick stop at Burger King in Bemidji.<P>Hwy # 10 to Motley, # 64 north. It will take you through Akckley and intersect with #200 west of Cass Lake and Walker. Turn left on #200 and follow to # 71. The exit will say Crookston. #71 to Bemidji and exit on #71, it will say International Falls. Go straight ahead at the stop light on #72 to Blackduck. This is going to take you past Red Lake through Keliher and Washkish. You will come to #12 on the east side of Baudette, take a left and head downtown. We used to run up 371 through Brainerd however even early in the morning you still slowed down for many stop lights and small towns. This is the route I've used for several, hope it works for you. Good luck on your trip and haaang on. Bill

Forgot the rest of your post. You will follow #12 through Warroad and Roseau and on up through Sprague Manitoba to the Angle. The last few miles are still dirt road I believe. Bill

Bill: I think you mean Hwy 11, not Hwy 12, unless they changed it, also they shouldn't go as far as Roseau. Take the "To Canada" north at Warroad. Follow the signs "To the Northwest Angle". Don't forget to call from the Custom Phones, both ways. They get sticky on that one.... Kaz<p>[This message has been edited by Kaz (edited 03-10-2004).]

Don't keep going to Roseau. You want to head North at Warroad, otherwise it's another 20miles.

Hey thanks for all the help guys. Bill, I appreciate the detailed directions. That 64 out Motley is familiar to me due to a brief stint at Bemidji State 13 years ago but I haven't been on it since. I was hoping someone might have a super secret short cut around the west side of Red, skipping Baudette all together and going straight through Warroad. However, I'm picking up Melvin in Sartell and if you can do Baudette to Sauk Rapids in 4 hours following that route, I can't complain about that! What's the time from Baudette to nwa, 1.5-2 hours? <P> MM

MadMulcher: Kaz and Widetrack are correct. Adjust my directions once you hit Baudette to the info there provided. Good luck and hang on. Bill

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.

      It came down pretty quick the past couple days after they got like 8 inches of rain at the headwaters last week.

      I purchased The newer smaller size Whopper Plopper, what a kool surface plug.  I can give it to most any client fishing and they can catch great fish. I had  a family of four on a guide trip, (Dad, Mom,  son10 and daughter 6 yrs old.) What a blast, was going to be dad and the kids, I told mom to come with to enjoy time . We spent an hour plus catching many sunfish and rockbass, the kids having a great time cranking fish from 16 feet of water.  I said "Lets look for bigger fish."  A quick bit of instruction with mom on how to set the hook, She began catching Bass after Bass, (I had only used the lure myself once for 10 minutes and caught 3 bass.) The Mrs, caught her personal best bass, of 19 inches.  Going out to get several more, for as sure as Gods make apples and bees, I know this bait sooner or later going trigger either a large pike or musky if on the of those lakes.  They may cost a bit more, but I my conservative approach to buying lures.  Money well spent.  I got the loon.
