I'm considering the possibility of getting another snowmobile again. My problem is storage. I have no space at home to store a sled and trailer. I was thinking about storing it somewhere near-ish the west end of the lake so that I can pick it up, tow it the short trip to The Landing, and then get to my place. Are there any options besides Vermilion Drive Storage on Hwy 24 just north of Cook? I reached out to them but want to make sure that I've checked out all of my options.

Isn't there a place next to Spring Bay resort, towards Moosebirds

I believe it's Head O Lakes Storage. Might be owned by the resort. That would be convenient, basically right across the road from the boat launch. I'll be driving up in the morning, I'll see if a phone number is posted.

Much appreciated Cigar Guy.

 

I'll also be interested to hear how the snow/ice conditions are in front of your place.

Will do. Last Sunday we were out in front of my place. Towards shore, powdery snow, about 8". The main snowmobile trail back into Black Bay is hard packed. Heading up in about an hour.

My cabin is right across from Head of the lakes storage, I called them once about snowmobile storage during the summer but he said he was full.   It will be interesting to see what you find out as I wonder if winter access would be easy or not?   

 

I have used K & L Self Storage on Olsen Road down from the snowmobile trail and The Cresent.  I really liked the storage, the price was right and the unit I had was very clean.  That being said I got scared off when someone broke into some of the units and cut half of my lock off (but did not get in).  They have since added a light and I assume electricity, maybe have cameras now, not sure.  You can contact David Lindroth at [email protected] for info, real nice guy.    I originally thought cool, right next to the trail how convenient, well I never did take off on the trail, I always trailered them anyway :-).  

 

I am currently at Vermilion Drive storage, the unit was a little smaller and a little more expensive but as far as I know its been fine.  They told me they were going to upgrade there camera system last year, not sure if they did or not.  I will be checking on the unit in the next few days, I'll let you know if any issue.   If your interested contact Gina Nukala [email protected], wonderful person and easy to work with.     Good Luck.

Life of Riley at the far end of Norwegian Bay has storage. Not as convenient, maybe, but great people.

Thanks all. Yes, I did get a message from Big V. I'll contact them this week.

 

I'm glad that I asked since it sounds like there are a number of storage options.

I looked on Google Maps. That appears to be 77 Storage where 115 meets 77. It's a bit far away from the west end but I'll check it out as well.

I stored with Oak Narrows Storage and they were great- husband & wife team. Highly recommend.

 

I had rented a space for fall/winter storage from them and was supposed to have access by late October when I was winterizing the cabin. It turned out the unit I rented was't quite ready yet due to the previous person not vacating in time. I'm down in the cities and rather than make me come back up the next weekend (this was the last trip of the year), April had me bring the Ranger over while I was up there. They were extremely trustworthy and I felt comfortable leaving the keys with them and they parked the unit for me and locked it up the next week. Didn't have an issue at all and they were terrific to work with. I'd store with them again in the future.

That's good to know. Even though it's too far east for me (I'm a west ender), hopefully that will benefit someone else looking for storage near Vermilion. There are lots of good businesses on and around the lake that are worth supporting.

I drove by Head O Lakes Storage today and noticed that they don't plow the driveway to it.  Vermilion Drive Storage is wide open.

Yup - I called the guy at Head O Lakes. He said that he stores boats only in the winter and it's full, so he doesn't plow it out. I'm going to store at Vermilion Drive Storage. I'll be up tomorrow, so you'll probably see me going back and forth a few times!

      Have hope. I feel as fisher people we have hope. If we were not hopeful, we would not spend time fishing. Please check out our latest adventure and stay HOPEFUL.

      gonna put this out there cuz it really is good. Lol. Cottage cheese. Ketchup. A little mayo. I have always hated cottage cheese straight but have been eating this since I was a kid. With wavy or regular potato chips. And I still love it!! Lol. I might have to try it sometime with a little bbq sauce. 🤪

      Hello fishingminnesota! Newbie here with an abundance of freetime thanks to the virus.
      For way too long I was too busy to get out. I have lost time to make up! It's early in the spring season but I'm dying to get out there and find some good fishing spots. I frequent trails around Eagle lake, Medicine lake, the parkway lakes (Harriet, Lake of the Isles, Bde Maka Ska, etc), and sometimes the coon rapids dam. I hope this is the year I finally hook my first catfish (that isn't a bullhead). Also looking into raising my own worms...
      I'm ambitious 😅

      Can you help others here by letting us know....
       
      What are you grateful for?
       
      It would be great if we could see what you are appreciative of everyday. Kind of a community journal. 
       
      For inspiration and a time to reflect on the wonderful things that surround us during changing times.

      Well, with the extra time we have on our hands, I decided to do a little spring cleaning. I have 3 Antler mounts I don't plan to use anymore, I switched to the boil method. I will sell these for $20 or b/o each. $50 takes all 3.

      Found a tackle box up on Lake Osakis this morning. It wasn't in any of the community spots or I wouldn't of found it with amount of guys up there. LOL!  Wow you would think the Caughren point area was the only place to catch and sight fish.They should of been there a week and a half ago when we found them fresh 😲   Glad I have better spots where social or should I say solo distancing was happening 😉 If anyone lost one out there off the beaten path I found it feel free to PM me with the contents and Ill get it back to you somehow. If nobody claims it I'll donate it to a kid (and No not you Smurfey 😂) to get him a good start into ice fishing some good stuff in there!

      I’m thankful for the posts on here also.  Some reflection time never hurts.  Thanks to you all for sharing!   I’m also thankful that I can still work even though it’s a HAVE to situation.  And in the big picture I’m thankful I can be a part of helping keep my community be as safe as possible.  That’s probably the biggest stress reliever of all.

      Saw 2 big Toms strutting with a group of 15 hens today. Still grouped up they should be starting to split here more and more in the days to come. Couple rain days and some sun will get some greenery going and fire them up ! Strut Zones will start to appear soon I hope

      Cant even imagine the stories that old cabin could tell. I always love finding things like these. Found some neat old abandoned stuff up in Ely In BWCA years ago.  One of things that has always intrigued me are old broken down deer stands.  Always makes me wonder how many deer were shot or missed or who sat there years ago. One can only imagine some of the deer camp stories that were told from them!

      Unless travel becomes actually restricted, I will be heading up to Vermilion for opener as usual. Like Smurfy, I can and often do go up and back without touching a thing. I can tow up there on one tank of gas, unloaded without touching the dock, fish, be at cabin, and return all with zero interaction. I will have to stop for gas on the drive home but that's not a real issue.   I usually do try to frequent businesses up there to spread my dollars around and infuse "new" money into the local economy, but this will not be one of those times. I am looking forward to opener one way or the other.

      My wife and I practiced social distancing today and took a long drive through the northwoods. Spotted this old log cabin back in the brush.
    • tacklejunkie
      How long do you think it will be before they put the dock in at Rice Landing?   I’ll be heading up towards McQuade either tomorrow morning or Friday morning

      Rice's is ice free but still some ice chunks out there in the bay so slow travel and keep your eyes peeled. Hate to put a hole in the boat this early in the season.

      I'm thankful that I got out of New Jersey safely and virus free, right before the anvil dropped. I then visited my elderly parents in Wisconsin and am extremely thankful that I didn't have any viruses to pass on to them. I know some people that have already died from this thing and know of quite a few others that are on ventilators in NJ and NY.    I am also thankful for internet forums like this one, that keep my mind focused on other stuff! Thanks Rick.
