First Spring Ride

Recommended Posts

Well the snow is finally melting a little. Starting to get jazzed about a little riding other than on the lake.

I am out of Elk River area and have been through a few of the closer places. Red Top, Pine City. But any other tips or places that you would reccomend.

Anyone looking to set a ride date and head out here when we can. Let me know. --Ride on

I was hoping to get to the north shore to ride the Moose walk and Red Dot last year but the fuel prices kept me home.

If the prices stay down, I'll try to get up there this summer. Take note of the ATV parade thread at the top of the forums. It's more people than I care to ride with in the same location though.

Nemadji is one of my fav's. I usually get there once a year.

Keep an eye on the forums here. I try to get a ride set up every year.

Nemadji is my all around favorite. Especially if you get off the main trails and find the narrow technical trails that go through the woods. We seldom see anybody else when we ride those. There's a ton of trails that hardly get used. Just gotta look for em. All legal to ride on too.

Agreed. many tighter, more techinical trails in Nemadji that are marked for ATV use. Gotta be careful not to tread onto the OHM trails though.

There are several trails that are now open to Class 2 ATVs. There some in Nemadji, I think Red Top.

The DNR has all of their trails maps updated with trails where Class 2 machines are permitted.

There have been days I encountered 20 other machines in Nemadji but it's never been an issue.

The trail head in the middle of Nemadji is maybe 3-4 miles from Nickerson tops. One trail comes out within a couple miles of Duquette if you need fuel of a bite to eat.

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
