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.

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
