Frank Vascellaro and Chris Shaffer are heading to lakes all over Minnesota and western Wis. for an entire week! On Day 1, the boys are at Sugar Lake Lodge on Sugar Lake in Grand Rapids – which is just three and a half hours north of the Twin Cities. Sugar Lake is called a “marl” lake, which means it has a high concentration of calcium carbonates which settle at the bottom, giving the lake a deep turquoise appearance. On a clear day you can see more than 20 feet below the surface.
