Big Grand boat launch

7 posts in this topic

Went to Big Grand today and saw that the launch on the south side is now private property. Is there another way to get on?

The landing on the south side has allways been private. They just people use it. trouble was the there were to much garbage and drunks at the landing so neighbors complained so much and the end result is frown.gif.

Another good reason to police ourselves so we don't lose these privledges, Im sure we've all picked up after these slobs.

The Dickerman Road is a private launch also, although the owner has let the launch deteriorate so it is basically unusable. Reports from the weekend of a lot of boat trailer travel down the road at high speeds by some un-happy fisherman. The locals were not very happy with guys speeding down the road with kids, dogs, bikers, etc. who use the road every day. Gotta be carefull guys when we are given the privilege of using private property. More behavior like that, and Grand will be an all private access lake. My 0.02....BK

The guy got tired of cleaning the place up, I don't blame him for closing it off. Its a few bad apples that'll spoil it for everyone. The Mario Andreeti style driving by a few on Grand last winter are probably the same guys tearing up and down the roads. Have some respect for others and slow down. Take your trash home with you too.

      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.
