Directions to LOW?

Recommended Posts

Quickest way is to take the freeway. 35W north to Cloquet, Hwy. 33 bypass to Hwy. 53 and north to the Falls. Heading up Hwy. 10 or 169 are pretty good routes, too, but you've got some pretty long stretches of nothing in the event you need help.

From St. Cloud, it's quicker for me to head to Hinckley and up the freeway than going through either Grand Rapids or Bemidji.

I'm with IFallsRon on this one. I get up to the Falls and Baudette a few time a year. I've tried 65, 10, 169, etc. I save gas on some of those two-laner ways because I think the distance is shorter, but if I need to be there in a hurry the Hinckley route is the one I take. It's consistantly the quickest for me (St. Cloud). If I was coming out of the Cities I wouldn't even think of another way.

Heading up to LOW (Baudette)this week and need some directions from the Metro. I went to mapquest and it told us to drive on 35 through Duluth. I find it hard to believe that is the best way. We were thinking about 169 to Grand Rapids. Any suggestions?

I go this way. Highway 65 north to Highway 2 just east of Grand Rapids. Highway 2 west to Highway 46 just west of Deer River. Highway 46 north to Northhome. Jog west 8 miles on Highway 71 and 1 then Highway 72 straight north to Baudette and the big pond...

Lots of two lane but lots of chances to make some time if you know what I mean...

I agree. You can also catch Highway 2 by going up 169 to Grand Rapids. Just depends which side of the cities you start from.

    • Whats everyone's thoughts on this new feature? https://www.navionics.com/usa/blog/post/ais-in-the-boating-app/  
    • What you are doing is even better than what they hope to achieve with the law. I do the same thing. My minnows never see lake water while in my possession except while riding on a hook. It is not possible to transfer invasives via my minnows or minnow container unless they came from the bait shop and the result would be same either way.   This brings up a good question. Aren't minnows trapped in lakes and streams? They could contain microscopic versions of invasive species and therefore be responsible for transporting them to every lake where the minnows are used. Even those raised in rearing ponds are potential threats if the rearing ponds become infected.   Unfortunately, it is impractical (not impossible) for a CO to know that my minnows have not been in the lake. He would have to take my word for it. As a result, unless they catch me taking my aerated minnow cooler from my boat to my truck, ....  
    • I see they got Eddie & Cron back last night but now Buxton's out again. It didn't help though as they played a sloppy game & beat themselves.
    • Work related travel.  Never been to the northeast before and wanted to experience it as much as possible so I drove and took a couple extra days.   Original plans had me touring some stuff in the DC area but its been a little more difficult and expensive to wander about than I’d hoped.   Get me to some water!!!
    • Most of the fish I've caught out of the abyss were caught just above the thermocline or high in the water column (1'-15' down). A friend of mine once caught a 31" hog walleye on a top raider over 100'+ of water. That's just one of the many hogs to come into my boat that were 0'-5' under the surface in mega deep water. So, keep your lures above the kill zone on slot lakes and you'll still get bit.
    • To young to be retired whats up with all this Wandering?  Didn't you just come back from Musky fishering? 🤔
    • Walked the Inner Harbor a bit, ate soft shell crab and took in an Oriole’s game at Camden Yards today.  Oh, and finally booked a SHORT trip on Erie to catch on the ride home.  Better than nothing.   White water rafting tomorrow will have to do for my most significant Maryland experience.  This put a little chill on me when I noticed what it was.     It’s a nice place to visit, but... you know the  rest.
    • Tried my hand at making Nashville hot chicken last night. It didn't turn out exactly like I expected but it was still good.  
    • Great fish @Lals!   You sound like we did on the way home from our trip - analyzing every fish we didn’t hook up or keep hooked after they bit.  I didn’t get any joy from a Top Raider either but live chucking them.   Thanks for the report!
    • Just came back from LOTW.  Numbers were down but not bites.  I was a miserable 6 for 15 fish on. 75% of the bites came on the figure 8, I mostly tried to set back into them and they would come "unbuttoned " pretty quickly.  Next year, I will  try pulling them around or if they bite up in the corner of my figure 8, I would then pull the rod straight back trying to set it in the corner of their mouth.   Smaller bucktails got the most bites.  Cranks did pretty well too -- 7" Slammers and Crane Bait.  One friend got a 48 on a Top Raider. I had a 4 -5 large fish follow a top raider or a jackpot but none bit.  My brother got a 50" on a Mepps Musky Marabou.
