Red Dot / Moose Walk Trails

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Weather permitting, I'm hoping to get a few hours of trail riding in this weekend. Does anyone know if any of the Red Dot or Moose Walk/Run trails are closed for archery season, weather or any other reason?

I've checked several places including the DNR and it doesn't look like any of the trails or Finland State Forest are closed, but I just wanted to check and see if this great group had any info to the contrary.

Thanks!

Thanks. Hoping for some decent weather to enjoy lunch on the trail and the sights.

Thanks again!

Trails are open till November up there.

It will be more than a few hours riding also, unless you go out and come back the same trail before getting anywhere. Great trails, beautiful country, and the weather sounds like it will be good for you. If it rains though, be prepared. The trails are all clay and it gets slippery. The trails don't rut or anything, but the water sits on the trail for quite a while.

Just got back today from Beaver Bay. The colors are really popping up there now, nobody was on the trails on Friday but ran into quite a few on Saturday.

Just a follow up -

We had a great ride this past weekend. It was just a day ride, but we did the entire Red Dot system and had a great time. We had a lot of rain Friday night, so there was no dust, and plenty of mud. Brought the grill/cooler and had lunch on the trail. The colors are beautiful - Great time to go up if you can. Not too busy - We saw maybe 5 other groups the whole time we were out.

Got up to Beaver Bay and realized we forgot the camera, otherwise I'd post some pics. Next time.

    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme. 
    • New Ice shelter coming this fall from Otter and Polaris specifically made for full size Rangers.  This will be available through Polaris Dealers.   https://fishingminnesota.com/forums/topic/210952-new-ice-shelter-from-polaris-and-otter/    
    • Sure I do Dave. You take a lot of nasty old rotted left over wood from torn down houses or where ever else they scrape it up from?  Sweep it up off the floor and turn it into little compressed pellets usually for heating stoves, then Dave makes his food with it! 😜    
    • Because that's the technical term. I can't help it if you don't know what a pellet grill is or what it can do. I'm more than happy to educate you though.....     BTW, those St. Louis spare ribs were a 5-1/2 hour smoke.
