They are starting to groom from Finland north on the NSST ,,, We could use more then the dustings of snow we have been getting lately to get the southern part of the trail set up

DNR snow map as of today. Looks like up by Finland and North should be good to go! 

I have the day after New Years Tuesday Jan 2nd  off of work.

What do you guys think for a ride on that day?  :)

May have to trailer up to Finland and take off out of the 4 Seasons bar?

I will be honest,,,, With the lack of activity on this site as a whole (besides the activity in silly town) I will soon be leaving this forum and frequent other sites that are more aligned and active to my interests ,,, This used to be my most frequented forum but changes  created others to flee and now its my time to flee also

Well you have my email address.

The sled forum and you guys that I have met and ridden with in the past years is one of the only reasons I hang in here as well. I know we can always pick up a ride over on the other sled site but it seems like most of those guy want to ride point A to B at 80 mph all the time. I actually like to stop and talk, explore the area and see the scenery once in a while when I drive 150 miles up to the North Shore to ride.

Keep in touch with Walleyehooker and I so we can tag along on a ride or two with ya! ;)

I got rid of my last sled about 16 years ago but if I still had one, this would be a trail I would like to ride. I keep saying I'm going to take my 4-wheeler up to that area and ride but it never seems to happen. :(

Only  a small portion of the NSST is open to 4 wheelers 

Yeah, I don't know what is exactly the NSST but I know there are 4 wheeler trails in the area that I want to check out. I didn't realize there were ATV trails up there until we were camping in Two Harbors this fall and we talked to some fellow campers who brought wheelers and were riding trails in the area.

I have heard of people doing Resort to resort or motel to motel rides along the North shore on wheelers in the summer or fall but not sure which stretch they run to do it?

Hey LoonASea and Walleyehooker what do you guys think about a ride on Tue Jan 2nd which it will still be a bit below zero or Sat Jan 6th when it is suppose to warm back up in the upper teens or 20's above Two Harbors? 

Let me know what you think?  :)

Yeah this riding season is suking big time. Rode around ice fishing a bit last Sunday. Looks like the following weekend of the 20th is another warming trend coming.

Not sure where that other retired guy Walleyehunter is?  Must have took for the sun somewhere?

 

I see the 20th is the HCS ride on the northshore. May be I'll have to come up and ride tail end sweeper, sweeper behind you!  :grin:

    • Like he said. After opening weekend there may be few fish left.  Here's a little view why! 😉        
    • Welcome to the forums.   There is another company here in Minnesota that gets used a lot called Mattracks that you may want to look up. What size motor do you have? It takes a pretty good size motor to turn these tracks and get any speed out of them.   https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjohMjdlYbjAhWPGM0KHSFVAFoQFjAAegQIBxAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mattracks.co%2F&usg=AOvVaw0l1s0-KJl2XMVmGU069TQt  
    • Upsize to #2 mepps. They cast much farther than the smaller sizes. With that being said, most (if not all) the trout have probably been caught out of the lake. If there is any trout left to be caught, I’d make sure to be there early in the morning as soon as the park opens.
    • So I am new to ATV’s and was doing some research on tracks for ATVs. I live in North Idaho and for winter and spring we have tons of snow and mud to deal with so was thinking tracks might be a good idea. So I found this site helpful https://www.atvtracks.net/track-systems and  local for me but wanted to get others opinions on what they use? I noticed they have two brands one Camso and one Kimpex what do y’all prefer?
    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.
