Black Top Road Conditions from Duluth

Recommended Posts

FOOTDOC

I am driving up this Thursday from Northern Indiana and am curious as to the road conditions from Duluth to Baudette. I will be taking route 2 thru Deer River and then picking up the road to Northome. From there, over to 72 up thru Red Lake and to Baudette. I have seen it has been very cold up that way and was curious as to what conditions the roads are in. Thanks!

We had rain followed by heavy snowfall last week and the roads are still covered with a sheet of ice - generally not good so drive carefully.

FOOTDOC: If you are coming I 94 thru Wisconsin to I 35 and north, Jump off at Mooselake and take Hwy 73 to Floodwood. You will save time and miles. I 35 goes back east before you get to Hwy 33 and then Hwy 2.. I travel that way from my place at Sturgeon Lk and it's quicker and less miles. Look at the map and you will see what I mean. Are you still on W/C much??? Kaz

Bill:

Plenty cold in Roseau/Warroad this morning too. It was -35, some say as cold as -41.

Had to put my truck in 4x4 to keep the back wheels from spinning out (stiff)... First few miles on square tires was a little rough too.

It sure is putting on ice to make up for lost time first part of December though. Would be nice to see a little warm up, but then we'll probably end up with all the snow thats sitting down in Iowa. Probably won't make much difference though up on LOW, sounds like cross ice travel is pretty limited with the snow you got last weekend. Guess I'll jump in the warm bomber and let Richard chaueffer me to the house. How's your hockey season going? winning a few? Bill

My boys hockey team has been doing pretty well. They have only lost 2 games so far. I can't remember how many they have won actually... it gets a little blurry with around 40 games. Season is just getting fired back up after the holidays... We will be on the road quite a bit soon.

Kaz, I still visit WC daily and have made a good number of fishing contacts there. I am itching to go north but the roads are telling me to stay put. We are getting 8-12" today. Hopefully by tomorrow morning, it will be 70 and sunny! Ha! I still might give it a try.

Kaz,

I caught an Amberjack a couple years ago in the Gulf out

of Alabama. That is an impressive fish!!!!!We were using

drop shot rigs and one of the guys on the boat caught 2

Jacks at the same time, one was about 10 pounds and the

other was bigger. I felt sorry for the guy, he had to

work and work hard to haul those fish up.

I hated the crappy huge rods they used, it made it real

tough to reel in fish. Everything felt so out of balance.

I suppose it takes some getting used to.

Enjoy your winter Kaz. We are hitting the sleeper houses

out of Morris Point this weekend.

      My prediction is that Pike Bay will open by May,4 and Big Bay will open by May, 12! Cliff
    • guideman
      It is much warmer now and after watching 30 ice outs on Vermilion, I think Pike bay will be ice free in about a week and Big bay typically follows about 10 days later.  Warm weather and wind can melt ice faster that you can believe. There might still be some ice floating around by the opener however I plan on going fishing like always. "Ace"

      I know from living on Pike pay for 27 years that this will be one of the latest, if not the latest start dates that I have seen. Good news my neighbors boat lift broke though the ice today and that typically mean that Pike bay will be open within a week. ;) "Ace" ;)

      No wake is in effect currently and will be for the weekend opener.  Spread the word.

      I wouldn't read too much into the open water in Oak Narrows. There's been open water there for more than a month. There's clearly forces other than air temps or sunshine at work there. With that said, considering the data shared by delcecchi, and the current 15-day forecast I am not without hope.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Enforcement Division has promoted four officers – Chelsie Leuthardt, Brandon McGaw, Jen Mueller and Brett Oberg – to the position of regional training officer. They’ve been in their new positions since April 18.  The Enforcement Division’s six regional training officers are responsible for training the state’s conservation officers on topics such as defensive tactics, firearms and use of force. In addition, they train and work closely with the 6,000 volunteers who are integral to delivering the division’s education and safety training program. (The largest number of volunteers, about 4,000, are firearms safety instructors.) Regional training officers also spend a portion of their time performing the traditional field duties of a conservation officer. Following are brief bios of the newly promoted officers: Chelsie Leuthardt has been a conservation officer for four years and most recently patrolled the White Bear Lake area. “I’ve made strong connections with many instructor groups and look forward to working with them more closely,” said Leuthardt, whose area includes the southeastern part of the state. “I enjoy working with our user groups and helping to form how we train our next generations of outdoor enthusiasts.” Brandon McGaw has been a conservation officer since 2007. For most of that time, he’s been stationed in the Mora area. He’s also been a Conservation Officer Academy instructor, field training officer, firearms instructor and use of force instructor. “I really love teaching,” said McGaw, whose area includes 10 counties north of the metro. “I enjoy connecting with the students as well as the older adults who take safety training courses.” Jen Mueller began her career as a conservation officer in the Hutchinson-West station in 2012. Mueller, who was promoted after serving as an acting regional training officer, said she learned quickly that participating in the Enforcement Division’s youth safety programs was one of her favorite parts of the job. “I’m amazed by our volunteer instructor groups and how passionate they are about what they’re teaching,” said Mueller, whose area includes the southwestern part of the state. “I also enjoy teaching our officers and helping them become better equipped to deal with situations they may face in the field.” Brett Oberg has been a conservation officer for 13 years and spent much of that time in the Hutchinson-East station. He’s also been an armorer, field training officer and use of force instructor. “I really enjoy training others and seeing youth get excited about the outdoors, especially firearms and hunting,” said Oberg, whose area includes the south metro and south-central part of the state. “I also enjoy teaching at the Conservation Officer Academy and helping the new recruits become conservation officers.” The four officers join Regional Training Officer Mike Lee, who covers the northeastern part of the state, and Acting Regional Training Officer Greg Oldakowski, who is responsible for the northwestern part of the state. Bruce Lawrence is the Enforcement Division’s statewide recreational vehicle coordinator. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
