Looking for Bait and Gas near Black Bay

6 posts in this topic

A bunch of us rented out Eagles Nest for the last week of May. I was wondering were the nearest bait shop is and where could we get gas for the boats. We are looking for a marina around the Black bay area where we don't have to take the boats out of the water to fill up on gas. Any suggestion would help us out a lot! Thanks! grin.gif

Moosebirds should be able to handle your requests. I don't know for sure if they have gas but there are enough resorts in that area that you shouldn't have any trouble. I'm sure more FM'er will chime in here to get you more accurate info.

moosebirds has both bait and gas. And ice cream. The Landing has gas, and beer.

...and food.

If you're putting your boats in at the public landing just north of Cook on Hwy 24, the boat landing is right in between The Landing and Moosebirds so you shouldn't have any problems finding them. It's about a 5 mile boat ride from Black Bay...20 minutes by my boat, maybe faster by yours!

      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.

      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.
