If you're in a lottery area that is. I'm applying for mine today along with my all-season license. Don't forget if you're in a lottery area! There's my public service message for the day. grin.gif

Thanks for the reminder. Have to apply for the St. Croix State Park Special Hunt. Hope I get drawn again this year.

Bought mine last week when I got my goose permit. $139 by the time I got thru with small game, duck, pheasant, deer. Sounds like quite a bit but lots of hours of fun for that $139!!!!

I hear ya BlackJack. I got mine yesterday and added a new safety vest/harness onto the bill, which was spendy. I haven't told her yet but she'll see it soon when she looks at the checking account. She'll probably have the same reaction I have after I notice a recent clothing purchase. grin.gif Though it's hard to argue about cost when it comes to safety. I got one of those deals for my ladder stands where it retracts so you're connected while climbing up and down the ladder as well and it jerks tight if it feels tension as if in a fall. Kind of the way a car seatbelt works.

If you're unsure as to whether or not you're hunting in a lottery area, check here: Permit Area Designations. If it's blue, you're in a lottery area and need to get that application in by Sept. 7th. If you hunt the 4B season, if it's lottery in 4A, it's also lottery in 4B.

For those who just can't get enough deer season information, go here: 2006 Deer Season Information. It's a document that contains everything you ever (or never) wanted to know about the 2006 deer season. There's a FAQ sheet at the end that answers the most common questions that come up.

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you

      Hi everyone I am new to this chat. I was wondering what stage you think the panfish are in right now anything helps. Thanks Luke

      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.
