Will be coming up in 10 days with a good friend to fish hard for 3 days. We've stayed at different resorts in the past but would like to camp this time. Does anyone have a favorite boat-in site? We've both done the Nam/Kab sites and really enjoyed them. Are there any sites on the Big-V comparable? Any info would be helpful. Thanks!

Depends on what part of the lake you are going to be on. Hinsdale island has some really nice sites on and there are some nice ones in Portage bay as well. All or most of the sites have fire rings and the good ol camp toilets as well as bear boxes and I know a few have picnic tables. The better sites can get filled quickly but this time of the year you will probably have a good shot at getting a good site. Keep in mind that the fallen wood for fires is probably pretty well picked over so plan on packing in some fire wood. Hope this helps. Have fun and stay warm! grin.gif

Thanks for the info MNBIGBEAR. Are there some other nice spots besides Hinsdale and Portage Bay? We can get to the fish anywhere on the lake.

at 4 bucks a gallon, being close is an advantage. Hinsdale is pretty centrally located. And there are several sites. I know of another place on west end, but only 1 site and sort of out of the way

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      St Louis county has something similar on their web sight (sic) https://gis.stlouiscountymn.gov/LandExplorer/

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
