That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
I don't have much skin in the game here. I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side. Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.
People hate change. Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners. The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different. With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.
I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there. If I don't like it, I won't go back. Premium prices demand premium quality and service. I hope they succeed.
Funny you say that, Bassthumb. The slow bite under our house was last week...my dad was up Tuesday and Wednesday this week and he lost count of how many fish they caught. We've been on a very inconsistent bite this year, though...every time we think about moving the house, we have a day or two of especially good bite before it slows down again.
