I've stayed at Moccasin point several times. It's a good campground, showers/toilets were always as clean as you can really expect for a campground. The sites next to the water are very nice as you can just head out the back of your site to the docks/beach area.

You're right in the middle of the lake there, so there's fishing all around. You can head to the west end or big bay without much problem...

Nice little store there to grab a bite to eat, a beer, or to wait out a storm. Always been friendly people there too. Can't say anything bad about the place.

Oh, and the docks there have a spectacular view of the lights when they're showing.

hoodoo point is also a nice campground, that where my seasonal site is. Its a pretty short boat ride out to some good fishing areas in big bay and you can also catch fish in pike bay sometimes. I havent stayed at mckinley or moccasin before so i cant compare those 2 at all.

My father has a seasonal on Hoodoo point. It's a nice campground.. I believe he fishes relativly close to the area too, sometimes right off the point.

It's been years since I've been to McKinley Park, my uncle has a cabin in that bay and from what I remeber it was a nice place.

Mocassin point, been there for a beer and ice the past few years, but I cannot recall ever noticing their campsites.

I've camped at Moc. Point many times. Nice campsites, clean showers and the location makes it a short boat ride east or west. Plus it's about a 10 minute drive for the bamboozler pizza!

Last year to camp at Moccasin Point....sounds like they will divide up the 44 acres into 11 plots and sell them.

Of course, they'll need some type of approval. But, they're gone!!

The whole thing has been for sale for a year or two.

      And just like that, it's open water time.... Got a few small ones today... felt good to have the long rod out again

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
