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.

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...

Tim

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.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
