Bringing a portable out?

6 posts in this topic

In Feburary I'm heading out to LOW for the first time. We are heading out of Sportsmans Lodge (I think). We'll be going out of the bombadeers and I was wondering if they allow you to bring your portable with or do they not allow that. Thanks for any help.

I asked another resort the same question and they said "no" that they didnt have enough room. You would also have to take the auger which is even more space. I would think most resorts go under the same policy and would say no.

I wouldn't plan on bring it. If you go out of a resort where you can drive out on their roads like Zipple then yes. But if you are going in a track van there isn't room for it. Maybe they will be willing to do it for you but I would bet it will cost more.

If the track vehicle has a hitch you can(or should)be able to bring it.I know depending on the amount of snow on the ice they may not want the portables/augers 'cause people drill to close to the shacks and flood them.c63I enjoy bringing an auger at least so I can fish outside alittle of the time.The owner at the place we always go says"why do rent a house from me when I come out here your always fishing outside" grin.gif Just call ahead and see if it's ok,eh?

If you have a party of a few guys going, just have a couple guys go in the bomber and you can follow the bomber with your sled and portable. That way, all your equip is in the portable and you have your "home" house as well as the opportunity to fish outside a little bit if needed. I don't think most resorts would care if you did that but just check like the last post said.

      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
