Ramp Conditions

14 posts in this topic

Headed up to the pond this weekend. Can anyone suggest a decent ramp on the West side? I have a deep-V that pulls a lot of water and have already fouled the prop once this year. I don't mind paying to launch if the ramp is decent and less crowded.

Has the bug hatch slowed the fishing?

Thanks,

Bob

First, welcome to fishing Minnesota and Hot Spot Outdoors. Yes, the hatch was big but the other day we still caught our fish, slots and the bigger ones also.

Go to Myr Mar and put in, protected and plenty deep.

Garrison (public) has taken some pretty big boats along with Terry's Boat Hardor. Avoid the casino public access(very shallow).

Watch out for the rocks at the Garrison public landing-- if you aren't trimmed way up there are rocks right off the channel' s edge.

The casino ramp was very popular and very shallow last weekend. You will run at 1.5 feet deep from the opening of the little harbor till a ways past the bouys. A good wind from the east would make that ramp very intersting. If I recall correctly Eddys dredged their harbor as well. Myr Mar was the most crowded ramp I saw last weekend next to the Casino ramp.

Also, when there was a real flurry of bugs the fishing seemed to slow but when there wasn't a hatch, the fish bit pretty well. I wouldn't worry about it.

What does it cost to put in at Myr Mar Marina? I thought it was closed.

I put in today at the Myr Mar access and it was windy. As a result, a wave lifted the boat and set the spinning prop down right on a rock. That was the end of that prop. I was able to run the boat with remainder of the day but the lost of performance from the one bent fin was interesting in that wind. I know have a nice new shiny black prop.

Does anyone know how the Red Door launch is? I'll be going there in July and am just curious. I'm sure the launch itself is ok but i know it's shallow coming out of there. Anybody know for sure?

Thanks

I just got off the phone with them and they told me that they dredged it to depth off 6' and 5 - 6' out the channel but she said with the wind it probably blew some sand back in.

She also said there are some pretty big boats in there harbor and have not heard any complaints.

Update: I spoke with a gentleman yesterday and he asked when they dredged at Red door because he was there on opener and said it was real shallow.

$8 or $10 a time. $100 a year at MyrMar. I haven't used the access since 6-9 but think it would still be fine. Harbor is 3-4' deep opening into lake 3' deep. With all the rocks out front I'm pretty sure that no sand has washed in. I paid the $100 this year after busting up 2 props & 1 skeg last year at the public access by MyrMar. Worth every penny especially if the wind comes up out of the S-SE when you try to load out!

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
