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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer

      Good opener last year!  Anywhere near as good this year?

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
