Have they built this access yet? saw them getting all the rubble together for it but haven't been up there since. Will it be usable this spring by chance?

Yes it should be open this spring I can not wait this will help out a lot for smaller boats.

Last time I saw it was in september and they had most of it completed. I'm planning on going there for the MN opener, hopefully it'll be done by then

I can't wait. I would love to troll along there but I am not brave enough to launch from Loon's foot and boat all the way to the French grin.gif

Capt.Blaine

Loopers

Cohos

King Salmon

Lake trout

Steelhead

Most likely if you are fishing in close it will be a looper or Coho Salmon.

If the big pond is too windy I was gonna hit the st. louis as a backup. Because it's the walleye opener (and the st. louis opens 2 weeks earlier) will it be less crowded there than normal?

The St. Louis does not open 2 weeks earlier, it's the same as the rest of MN, unless they have made a significant change in the 2007 regs, which I have not seen or heard anything yet?

      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/

      This has been an interesting thread.  Walleye wings is new to me and I am going to do this to provide a different experience.  Thank you all for sharing!!!

      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.
