Information on Inspecting Your Own Watercraft

We recommend you check your boat and trailer carefully before you begin your trip to Lake Vermilion, a second time when you reach your launch site (just to be sure), and again when you exit the lake for your trip home. We can’t be too careful when it comes to inadvertently moving AIS from lake to lake.

When you arrive at a Lake Vermilion public or private access, ask the inspector or dock attendant to show you what to do and where to look. These folks will be glad to pass on their knowledge.

For additional information, check out the six YouTube videos below. They were developed by the Minnesota DNR for refresher training of volunteer inspectors.
