Weekend of Dec 14th Places to eat

10 posts in this topic

A couple buddies and me are heading up next weekend to do some ice fishing and was wondering if there is anywhere to get breakfast or dinner in Crane Lake. Not sure where we are staying yet.

At the end of the crane lake road is the voyageur lodge, there a full bar and restraunt, I'm not sure of there hours but you could look up there web site and see if they list them, they also have a web cam that shows the lake. And on the road to crane from orr is a couple diners, one is the VRT and there is another one but I can't remeber the name.

The Voyagaire is closed until after Xmas so I will have to check VRT out. Thanks

Besides the VRT, there is a resort that I think is called Trails End that my brother says is pretty good. I've eaten at the little bar at the start of the Echo Trail and that was decent, but I can't remember the name of the place. I'm not sure if any of these places will have breakfast, or even be open for that matter. I know it's kind of "inbetween season" for them.

I talked to the Trails End today and they will be gone next weekend. Anyone know the phone number for VRT?

Elephant Lake Lodge is open on weekends, but if noone is staying in the lodge their hours can be variable. They have had some hunters and ice fishermen the last couple of weekends. We go over to Crane to eat during the summer, but don't know how the road is now.

If you wish to eat there, suggest calling ELL at 800-205-9001 to confirm they are open.

I found the phone nmumber for the golf course that I think is associated with VRT (vermillion river tavern, buyck mn)that number is 218-993-2246. I know it's not golf season but they might still answer the phone. Also I bet you could call the Orr,mn chamber of commerce and they would have the number.

That is the number for the VRT.

Voyagaire may not be open until after Xmas but you could give them a try - 218-993-2266.

Melgeorge's is open.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
