I would second calling Chad, stayed with him this year for the first time and he was great to work with and put us on some fish.

Are the sleeper houses mostly on one side of the lake or are they spread every where? I will probably be going up for the first time in march and just wondered where most sleepers are.

Call Chad. We fished out of his houses last week and did very well. This is the second year we have rented from him. Treats his customers very well.

His houses are very nice ice pro houses. The ones we were in had 4 bunks in them and 8 holes. I think they were 8X16. He charges $100 a day

Cool. Is it $100 for the house for 4 guys, or $100 per head? Just curious. Have only heard THE BEST things about Chad's rentals.

If you search for chad and upper red lake you will see his rates. Don't think he is a sponsor so you will not find it here. Rates very, he has them posted on his web site.....best to call him as others said.

My bad, guess I didn't know he was a sponsor. He was great when we went out, he checked on us and was moving houses and keeping us on fish. I found him by doing the google search and handn't seen his information on here before. Sorry Chad!!

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
