Pulaski launch parking

7 posts in this topic

Was in the area the other day and went to check out the boat launch at Pulaski.  Saw the dock but what's up with the parking.   Two rows of single stall parking on each side, where is the truck & trailer parking.  I have never seen such a confusing launch like this before.

You have to take your trailor off and put it next to your vehicle. Not a good set up they have there.

Most folks park out on the road but it fills up quick on weekends at least. I think a lot of the road is no parking also.

Yeah, it's moronic.  Who the heck wants to unhook their trailer every time they launch?

Yeah, the landing stinks. Probably why I never go there.  Too many other lakes where I don't have to unhook my trailer!

I agree with RuddyDuck would like to fish this lake more but the landing gives me nightmares especially once the recreational boats start showing up more!

You can also park down the street along side the middle School, but it is a bit of a walk.  I'm in the same boat as all of you, I would love to go there more, but it's a hassle.

      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.

      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.
