Fishing Virginia MN.

9 posts in this topic

I can't wait to move up there. From what I have been reading

it sounds like the fishing is good all year round in MN.

I have done some fishing but not ice fishing. I am looking forward to making my own ice hut and putting it to good use.

Does anyone eat there fish raw like sushi?

Us rangers like it breaded with cracker crumbs and deep fried in Crisco, the way mother nature intended!

fishoff,

It is generally not recommended to eat ANY fresh water fish as sushi unless in a life and death situation. Fresh water fish carry a lot of parasites and getting sick would be the least of your worries.

Virginia is a short drive to Vermillon and the Ely lakes. That makes for some pretty good fishing.

The more I read the more excited I get about moving there.

SOOOOO many different species of fish and sooo much

fancy equipment I am going to need for ice fishing.

I decided against a home made ice house. The portable ones with a sled and heater look awsome and I will be close to so many lakes I will probably move around all winter. The Otter 2 looks pretty sweet.

Yes, but it usually involves their bait and copious amounts of alcohol grin.gif

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
