Would it be wise to make the drive from Utica to check here for some crappies this weekend or stop at Chester. I could try everywhere I can think of. What would be the best bet. I don't have much experience on Zumbro and have never been to Chester.

You may have to go down the lake aways yet to find the crappies, but they are most definately on their way up there. If you chester would be a good bet, but I've never found the crappies during the day so someone else would have to help you there. Might want to consider Silver Creek too as far as crappies go.

The crappie bite on Willow Creek has been surprisingly good the past month or so.

I have been there a couple times, no crappies though. I guess I just want to catch fish. Sunnies, Crappies, Perch they're all fun. Thanks for the responses.

      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.
