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.

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
