Good Landing?

Recommended Posts

davesfriend

I am heading for the big pond this weekend and I have a 175 sportfish. I am looking for a landing that hasn't been power loaded so many times. I don't want to tear my trailer apart.. Is it better to pay to land? I would like to be on the west side by Garrison or around there. Anybody know of any hot spots? Thanks..

Red door is good. I thing $10 to launch, worth it.

Where do you plan on fishing or are you neutral there? Also it is going to be hard to find a power launching free access. The lake is full of large boats that can not be loaded any other way. Where ever you decide to go north or south I think the $10 is well worth using a resort launch. They have a stake in keeping it clean and safe.

The Red Door is on the north end. Highway 18 in the town of Wealthwood.

I am gathering info for our yearly Garrison/September trip. We normally launch at Garrison. Yesterday the Garrison launch only had one trailer parked there, and the restroom was fenced off. What problem is created by boats powering on? I am going to guess that holes and rock piles are created? Last year Wealthwood was too low, I would expect worse now. A few weeks ago Vineland had a full parking lot. What is the report there? Thanks for the help.

I launched 175 deep v at garrison on saturday the 25th. It was mighty shallow. We made it though. Power loading creates a deep hole at the end of the slab. If you drop your trailer tires in there you will rip something apart if you can get it out. Or get lucky and nothing bad happens.

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff

      KABETOGAMA FISHING REPORT AND TRAIL CONDITIONS  2/20/2018 SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW!!!! So our forecasted 3-7 inches turned into about a foot of snow in the last 24 hours and its still coming down!  Needless to say the trails are being groomed and are in premier shape.  If you can get up here, the next couple weeks should be awesome riding around the entire area.  Always check with the Park Service and local snowmobile clubs for the latest conditions. On to fishing……the walleye bite has slowed some but with the warmer weather coming through the weekend we should rap up the walleye and pike season with a bang.  Right now, 30-34 ft over mud seems to be producing the best.  Casey form Reef Runner Rentals and Voyageur park lodge is starting to move his houses onto the mud in preparation for what should be a fantastic late season perch bite.  We have some monster jumbo perch on Kab and the fishing can be fast and furious!  And don’t forget about our great crappie fishing.  Rumor has it they are biting but you need to explore a little to find them.  Generally the area around Ash River is a great place to start. Snowmobiling and fishing aren’t the only activities to take advantage of in Voyageurs National Park right now.  Snow shoeing, cross country skiing, the park service sledding hill and skating rink are just a few things to keep you busy in our winter wonderland.  We also have winter camping for the brave ones! It is absolutely beautiful out there right now.  Load up the bus and come visit us in Gods country! Gateway General Store

      Does anyone by chance know of any resorts that rent cabins this time of year on any lakes in the faribault area. I love white Russians while sitting in my ice tent. But not so much the drive back through town to a hotel. Oh and of course there's the Busch lattes!
    • eyeguy 54

    • Alex wilhelmi
      Awesome thanks Rick! I'll post a fishing report on how we do!

      The ice is still drivable and they've been catching panfish. Shields has really been on fire. Lot's of houses on it though.
    • Alex wilhelmi
