      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Does anyone out there have any experience with renting a private cabin?

We're looking at doing that next year in September for a couple of weeks.

Any insights, experiences, recommendations would be most welcome!

We noticed a couple of years ago that there are several houses for rent on V. Next year we are renting one so we can expand our 1 week vacation into 2. The agreements seem to pretty well mirror the agreements for regular resort cabins. Your experience will depend on the people managing the property just like your resort experience will depend on those running the resort. Good and bad in all situations. I would start by word-of-mouth recomendations. Rantalahti is the house we are staying at. It's next door to Muskego Point which is where we stay on our normal vacation week. Nice home. Owners are pleasant and we haven't heard any negatives about their dealings. Might be a good place to start.

We stayed at Uncle Tom's Cabin (Tom Kvale) and I would highly recommend it. Great shore, fire pit, sauna, dish TV, basement for wet clothes, nice deck, very well stocked w/ supplies.

We also stayed at Trancheffs and I would go back there as well. Not as nice, but well maintained and attentive owners on site.

There are a lot of very nice private cabins for rent on the lake now.

Not sure how competativly priced that they are compared to a resort.

Sue,

My family and I got to walk through it before we left on July 29th. You'll love it! We'll get spoiled for sure. It's a good thing Joe and Jenny run such a great place at muskego (hee hee smirk.gif)

Good pick Sue. The resorts on Big V. are overpriced and too many cabins on such small areas! Private home rentals are the wave of the future! Once all the resorts are gone, the lake will have less people around and the fishing will be fantastic once again!

I have ny doubts about the resorts being the source of "all the people" on the lake fishing. When I forst found Vermilion 20 years ago, there were a lot less people on it. As I recall there are no new resorts in that time. Maybe I'm wrong about that. But, there sure are a lot more folks on the lake. I wonder where they came from??

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      Lot of ice on the shore, only place to fish as of Thursday is two harbors breakwall
    • Wanderer
      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.
