Just got back to the St. Cloud area....again, we had an awesome trip filled with 'eyes, pike, perch, and stories....what a gas. My boys (7 and 12) absolutely enjoyed every tug and tap on the lines....we caught about 100 to 120 walleyes...we'll be back toward the end of February.....thanks again for a trip to remember!! I still can't believe we got that 40" pike in on 6lb test....by hand! Happy New Year! grin.gif

Sorry I missed you guys today but one of the hard and fast rules of Hillman's road is that if you have rentals on Hillman's road and Buddy says lets plow you have 20 minutes to be there with your V-Plow. He did give us a little warning last night by telling us to be there at first light to push the main road west.

After hearing Jon's story about his white pickup, we just thought that you were out toward the line looking for cracks shocked.gifshocked.gif Whata a story!!!! Again, many thanks for all the hard work you do...we had a great time....the only thing we forgot to mention was that the smoke alarm had phantoms in it....Jon replaced the battery, but suddenly it would go off around the same time the walleyes would show up...strange....you might have to charge extra for that house! smirk.gif

That thing was going haywire again today, I replaced it with a different one and no more beeping.

I need to remember to bring the camera home and get those pics of the perch king and his perch he was hooking uploaded.

Kelly, Patsy and Jon, Thanks for putting my Grandaughter and myself in that GREAT SPOT. We had ball catching all those eyes. After Jon left things started to go gang busters. Are you planning on leaving that house there for the season. I sure liked what was on the bottom of those holes. Again, thanks for a great time. That little girl went to grama's with a smile on her face and a experience she won't soon forget. You should have heard the yarn she was spinning to her grandpa. He told me I taught her well. He said she is a true fisherman, she can tell fish stories with the best of them. I told him she has a ways to go, she doen't know how to lie yet grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I would like to get back in that house with Georgia, she would have a ball.

Later Kelly, sorry you were tied up in the road situation, but what a fantastic road, you guys are real pro's.

Thanks Again.

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
