How are you coming on the damage to the cabin? HOpe it wasn't to serious and you're getting it done before the snow flies.

I'm shutting down the water etc, pulling the dock and lift this weekend. Sure not looking forward to it but I guess there's not much I can do to slow down mother nature. Two weeks from now I will be in SD so maybe that will take my mine off of it for awhile. With the leaves pretty much gone I can almost see into your kitchen window from my dock LOL.. grin.gif.Have a good fall, perhaps see you there on the hard water. Bill

I was there last weekend and saw the damage first hand, not too major. I have someone lined up to fix the roof but they hadn't got to it yet, it was pretty rainy last week, hopefully it will be done soon. Three out of four panes of glass were broke out on one window, took them out and brought them to Mora for glass replacement, will be ready by this weekend. I put a piece of plywood over the window for now. The roof shouldn't cost more than a couple hundred bucks and the glass should be under a hundred, so no insurance claim will be needed. Cut up a few downed trees.

So things should be back to normal soon.

I'll be up Sunday to take the dock and pontoon out, my fishing boat and lift are already out. The following weekend I'll be shutting the water system down. I have a busy schedule this fall so I need to get things done when I can, a little earlier this year than normal.

Ice fishing will be here soon, maybe I'll try over your way this winter (early before the "village" appears). Dave

Sounds good. I hope to be up before the ice is thick enough to support full size vehicles and big wheel houses. The fish we've been catching that way have been awfully small, occassional decent size, but mainly 6-8". Released 3 others 21", 22" and 23" last weekend.

Glad to hear no major damage to the cabin. Hope to see you on the hard stuff. Bill

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.

      Keep on preaching BA.   Just got back from a resort on the river, 3 days fishing. 22 feet of water, they sad they were catching fish. Shacks obviously haven't been moved so far. Obvious tell tale signs.   2 out of 3 afternoons never marked one fish. The other was just a couple. Morning bite 8-8:07   They ran with the pedestrian anglers/corporate drinking groups  'good fishing' reports with their bucket of 1 limit of 10" saugers.   Signed, Disappointed Schnook from Chicago
