Bought a cabin on Irene. (actually splitting the place with my step dad who is retiring there and will be living there full time) Never have fished the lake just looked at the dnr report. Just was looking to get any advice on the lake. (good crappies, walleye, bass etc)

Thanks a lot

Used to be a really good crappie/panfish lake for both size and numbers. Haven't fished them for a while on there so i don't know how good it is anymore. Heard rumors though that it got overfished/harvested for a few years. Good population of bass. Haven't caught many giants on it though. Not a ton of walleyes but they can be caught. Usually pretty good size w/them. Nice small little lake with lots of different options for fish species and different fishing styles. Right next to miltona also.

I've heard that the lake association and DNR has stepped up it's stocking efforts in an attempt to get the walleye population jump started again.

Still good panfish if you find them.

The panfish are or have been over fished and it was a very good lake. It still is a good panfish lake just

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.
