Anyone have directions from Wabasha to the half moon landing on Pool 5?

Go to Kellogg on Hwy 61. Then go east on county 18 (near Shortys' bait shop a.k.a. Prarie Bait Shop) to county 84. Left on 84 (West Newton) and that'll take ya to Half Moon Landing. There is a much newer and nicer ramp before you get to Half Moon. It's on the left on the same road.

Oh man, I'm sorry! I can't remember if I even saw a sign up there. I do know that it goes right to the deep water. Very easy to see. It's on the left side of the road when you go to West Newton.

Half Moon used to be a shallow area. But I think it was dredged so it may be ok now.

Which one has better access to main river in your opinion?

By far the first one. The new one. You can almost see the main channel from the ramp.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.

      Funny you say that, Bassthumb.  The slow bite under our house was last week...my dad was up Tuesday and Wednesday this week and he lost count of how many fish they caught.  We've been on a very inconsistent bite this year, though...every time we think about moving the house, we have a day or two of especially good bite before it slows down again.
