Vermillion the weekend of October 26 -29

7 posts in this topic

First, thank you to those who replied in the "buoy" thread for the advice about avoiding complete destruction of my boat since the bouys will be pulled before my first trip to the lake. I've been looking and think I have decided to buy the LakeMasters paper map (my hand-me-down GPS doesn't take map chips).

Second, my wife has agreed to celebrate our 3rd anniversary (and my birthday) by taking a trip to Vermillion for 3 nights on October 26 - 29. I'd like to make the stay up there as enjoyable as possible to help ensure the anniversaries keep coming. Does anyone have suggestions for lodging (place to stay or stay away from)? Right now I'm leaning towards voyageur cove. My wife has already agreed to spend some time chasing muskies but I would like to have some other things planned. I'm pretty sure we'll head over to the wolf center, but does anybody out there have other good ideas? Being that this is FISHINGMinnesota fishing advice would also be welcome and appreciated.

The Casino is pretty nice.

The walleye bite should be pretty hot by then. Look for steeply dropping points and hard to soft transitions around 25 to 35 FOT or so.

Pack your long johns. It can be sort of nippy by then. And remember it gets dark early, so don't waste good daylight. :-)

I'm not worried about ice, but I had planned on snowmobile suits, winter boots and life jackets.

Thanks for all the quick replies.

I was out last year the 1st weekend of Nov and the in just a sweat shirt over a t-shirt so you never know. Couple years before that around the same time I got caught out there in a snow storm.

      Rainbows are typically stocked.  Check the DNR for locations.      SE Minnesota, Whitewater, Root river systems have nativized brown trout.     But if you just want meat, go to costco.   Buy them it is cheaper.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
