Vermilion Dam Lodge

9 posts in this topic

Well we have a big group going up on the 29th of this month. I have never been to this lodge or even on this lake. I would like to fish for Walleye and Muskie. Any one have any stats on this lodge. I believe we are staying in the Norway and man does that look cool as hell!! I can't wait to get out of town!!

Thanks

VDL is ran by a great owner. Ed works as hard as anybody on having a great, well run resort. You will have a great time, and Ed is also an excellent muskie fisherman. You won't be disapointed.

I have been going to VDL for 4 years now. I do not think I will ever go anywhere else. Ed is one of the most down to earth guys you will ever meet. He and Marty (righthand man) are both avid musky fisherman. I promise you, they will put you on fish and take very good care of you. Their cabins are second to none. Stayed in the Norway last year, this year we stayed at the solitude.

VDL looks like a nice place....I have always fished the east end so I'm not familiar with the west end and after seeing where VDL is, I'm curious as to the convenience of getting where you want to fish.

We just got back from staying at the VDL. Great place. Ed is a nice guy. We were mainly fishing Walleye. Either the bite was just slow or we couldn't find the right spots. We caught a few but nothing to write home about. I would like to fish Vermilion again with a little more persistence.

Have a great trip and let us know how you do.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.

      I've seen a lot of people dragging raps for "crappies" before the opener

      Go down to MG and they will steer you in the right direction.  I know that  different release is used for braid.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.
