Public Landings on Vermillion's East side

Recommended Posts

Kirk_L

Hello everyone, First off I'd like to wish everyone a fun & safe Opener. This is my first post on your forum, I enjoy reading it.

My question is what is the best landing for a visitor like myself who'd like to fish the East end of the lake the first week of June. (I'll be driving from the Ely area)

I see there are landings in Stuntz Bay and McKinley Park, I wasn't sure if they were open to the public or not. (I don't mind paying a reasonable user fee since I know it costs something to maintain a landing. This may be another topic entirely, but are there plans to put a landing in the new State Park in the future ?

Thanks everyone and good fishing.

There is a nice DNR landing in Everett Bay and then there is also the marina at the casino which is a pay launch.

The closest landing coming from Ely is Stuntz Bay. Whether it is public or not I have never been able to figure out. It is listed as a public launch, but there are signs indicating that you must be a Stuntz Bay Association member to use the launch. You can become a member for $10 or you can launch there and expect a note indicating it is not a public launch on your vehicle when you get back.

The best public launch on the East end is located at HooDoo Point.

Good landing and a lot of parking space.

McKinley Park is also a good spot if there is not a heavy wind from anywhere Northerly. Parking there also. About $5 a day I believe.

Everett Bay or the Casino are also good spots.

Welcome to HSO!

Forgot to mention Shamrock Marina off of Highway #77 also!!

A little farther west from McKinley is Hoodoo Point puplic launch. It is in Pike Bay but not too far from the main lake.

One other possibility is in Daisy Bay. There is a public launch on Birch Point Rd., adjacent to Daisy Island. It's not the eastern-most launch, but it is in the east, and if you have a small boat, you might not want to cross Big Bay if the wind is strong. This launch is well protected, but has limited parking.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????

      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.
