Vermillion 1st Timer

8 posts in this topic

I'm thinking about heading up to vermillion for a weekend in august. I'd like to get some info on campgrounds mostly, but also, I have a small boat (14 footer, 7.5 HP motor) so I'm not looking to cover any big water...so any info on good bass locations with least amounts of boat traffic would be great too. Any info at all would be great...thanks in advance.

JB,

Shoot me an email, and I will give you some help with campgrounds and good bass locations.

I would prefer a state owned campground, but any resorts that have campgrounds are fine too. Goldglover81@yahoo.com. Thanks for the help.

JB,

I tried to send you an email, but it didn't go through. Not sure what's up, but you can either email me directly or call too. Got some information that I think will help you...

IF you are up for camping on an island, you can go in at the public access at Timbuktu and head to the east side of Hinsdale Island. Several nice state campsites in Smartz Bay and no big water to go thru.

There are other lakes in the area that you could go to. Bear Head State Park is just a little further down the road. That has bass fishing and several other species. A couple of decent sized lakes and a few smaller ones. That may be something to consider.

Can someone explain why I got (Contact Us Please) for the word "State"?

Tim, hmmm, I wonder why it didn't go through...it didn't say it was the wrong address did it? Oh well, yeah, I can e-mail you first and hopefully that'll work. What's the addy?

I have no problem camping on an island. The problem with that is I wouldn't be getting up there til night time. Don't know if I want to be boating around on an unfamiliar lake looking for an island. I'm deadset on fishing vermillion, so a nearby campground is an option, but definitely a last resort. I appreciate the help so far, I'm sure we're gonna figure something out.

Look on a map and you will see that from the Timbuktu landing to the campsites on the east side of Hinsdale is a very easy find. You shouldn't have nay trouble unless someone was already at those sites.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
