We've spared no expense in maintaining this setup over the years. If something broke, we fixed it or upgraded it. It's seen things. It's caught fish. It's seen blood and guts. If you're looking for a new boat, this isn't it.
If you want a terrific setup to hit the water with this spring, this is it. It's proven itself and will continue to do so with the next owner. There's a lot here, and I'm sure we're forgetting things. If you have questions feel free to ask.
Boat is currently sitting in storage on a trickle charger set up in Detroit Lakes, MN. It's ready to go today. Can be brought down to the cities if someone's ready to buy it.

Great little motor, I just dont use it on the lakes that I go to.
Located in Savage MN, Local pickup or delivery options only.
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.
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
