Thanksgiving weekend- Vermillion

Recommended Posts

Eds

I posted this in the Vermi site as well, but since this is the most active post, figured I'd throw it out here too! So that said, heading up for some fun and relaxation over the long weekend of, you guessed, Thanksgiving, Never been up in the area this late in the year, well besides full on winter. But looking for some suggestions of random things to do. You guys are the best resource by far, so if you have any input I sure would appreciate it! Thanks in advance.

You could definitely still fish. The water temps are cold and some of the smaller bays are freezing but the eyes are biting on rainbows still.

As for other stuff to do at this time of the year, obviously some of the best things like the bear sanctuary and the Soudan Mine are closed. You can stop at the mine view in the sky in Virginia on the way up. It's free (unless you put in the donation box) and a beautiful view. Just look for the giant dump trucks high up on the hill. Also near Eveleth is the Wellstone crash site if you're into that. On the edge of Virginia is also some hiking trails along the Laurentian Divide.

On Vermilion, there's a lot of good bars like The Landing on the west end, the Vermilion Club, the Fortune Bay Casino, etc. I'm running short of suggestions for this time of year except for a cold Schlitz, a nice fire, and lots of turkey.

I hope this helps. grin.gif

just got some pictures from a buddy of mine that was up there musky fishing last weekend. lots of ice on the poles, on the rocky shoreline, in the trees, and a huge musky in his arms. i hear the eyes are hitting pretty well too. not sure about locations, but they appeared to be fishing close to shore judging by the photos. hope that helps some.

I've never gone on an aerial tour of the area. I assume that you could find some information by going to the Lake Vermilion website or doing some Google searches.
