Pontoon Musky Guide

5 posts in this topic

Hello, I'm looking for the pontoon musky guide on the lake for a large group outing yet this year. Does anyone have a contact number for this outfit. Anything good or bad about them. How many people can fit on the pontoon? Any idea what they charge? Can you also do some walleye fishing? Thanks!

I do not have any contact information for you, but his name is

Gene Miller and he is the postmaster in Isle.

"Sweet Music" Jimmy Meinert runs a pontoon charter out of Barnacles on the North end. Different Jim than the owner. He does muskies and Walleye. I am pretty sure he can handle up to 6 people. You can call the resort and ask about his charter service. He's a pretty good guy. I haven't been up for a few weeks so I don't know how he's been doing lately

(Note from admin,please read forum policy before posting again,Thank-you.)

We went out with Gene Miller on Monday and had a blast. He runs a pontoon out of Barnicles as well. It was a great learning expirence and well worth it. The bonus was a couple nice ski's as well. But i think we had to book almost a half year in advance to get a specific date. Good luck.

I heard about this for the first time last year and it really peaked my curiousity. If you don't mind me asking, what type of baits are you pulling and what type of structure are you going over? I have yet to go musky fishing for fear I will have to sell all my walleye gear once I catch one, but I'm warming up to the idea. smile.gif

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
