Been ice fishing out of there for years, never been there in open water though. But we like the place and the people that run it.

my parents have a place at nodak. they went up there a week or two ago to rake lawn and get it ready for the summer. they said the marina is low just like the rest of the lake, but also that they worked on it, (rebuilding some of the retaining walls, maybe a new dock, etc.). usually there is no problems with the landing, they have it dug out enough to get your boat out. I thought i remember reading 4-8 ft in the middle last year, cant remember. But out from the marina, it is shallow, and if it is too low that could be an issue. I don't know how deep the water is out from the marina though, because i have not been up there.

The cabins look nice, though i have never been in them, the camp sites are taken care of. I think it is a nice place.

I've been going to/staying at Nodak's since 1973 (Yikes, I'm old...) shocked.gif

I agree with UMD - outside of the harbor it gets shallow, but it's all sand.

Good luck out there!

i don't know how low the lake is, so i couldn't tell ya. I hope you can get out, because if you can't, that means we probably cant with a 21' sylvan. give roger (owner) a call he should know.

I looked up the water levels at the dam and it says the level around 0.5 ft lower than last year at this time.

Cabins are well kept and the people that run the place are great. They understand fish and fisherman.

      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.

      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.
