Just got back from LOW and Adrians. The road out was in great shape. Fishing wasnt the greatest though.. We went to Adrians plowed spots for Wheeled houses and only caught 3 keeper fish all day on Thursday and had to head into the resort for dinner. This was in about 34' of water and 6 miles out from the island. So, the next day we moved in to about 24' of water or about 2 miles out from island. We did ok, but not great.. Had enough to eat and my son Caught his first Sauger that day, a nice 16". He also caught his first walleye just after dark, a decent 14". The next day was a little better and right around noon we had a spurt were it seemed every other rattle reel or bobber went down. This lasted for about half an hour, but with only about 3 or 4 keepers. I think we brough home 10 or 11 fish and ate 2 meals worth up on the lake.

I did catch my 2 biggest perch though.. One was almost 13" or so. I also caught a 25" or so Pout, during mid day.. Which was odd. I thought I had a real nice walleye. \:\)

Thanks for the great report!! Makes me happy to head up there only can hope for good fishing. I think maybe I will fish in a bit shallower as you did in the second part of your trip.

I was up at Adrians on Saturday, the 23rd, we were about 5 miles out from the island in one of their houses in about 35 fow. We ended up keeping 6 saugers and 3 walleyes all nice fish and caught quite a few little guys to keep it interesting throughout the day. I'll second what Kylersk said about the road they have it in great shape. All around a really good experience and a nice day to be out on the lake.

We didn't do that great that weekend either. We were out of Birchview in 33-34 fow. about 15 fish per day brought back with a mix of sauger tulee's walleyes and perch. I did end up with a nice eye on the last day. 26" about 10' off the bottom.

      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.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.
