Good Landing?

7 posts in this topic

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.

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
