Theodore Wirth Park

1 post in this topic

I'm lucky enought to start and end every business day with a brisk ride home on a bike. I take a wiggly little back route through the Wirth park area. This afternoon (within site of my usual archery range) I ride within 20 feet of this enormous buck. Even without the big fat swollen neck, he was intimidatingly large. And he had fist-sized antlers starting on his head. He's gonna be a biggun'! My wife works for a company that backs up to the railroad tracks near there. In the early fall, I've stumbled upon bachelor groups of 10 or more mind blowing bucks nuzzling and romping around on the blacktop of her parking lot. I'd swear that acre for acre, that area has more and bigger bucks than anywhere else I've ever seen.

Wouldn't it be great to fling an arrow through those trees? Surely some tree hugging nudist sunning themselves on the shores on Twin lake would have a coronary at the thought of killing one of his furrry friends, but the thought of dragging a once in a lifetime buck out of a park within sight of my office building would be pretty darn cool....

Anyone else have much experience around this park?

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.

      Keep on preaching BA.   Just got back from a resort on the river, 3 days fishing. 22 feet of water, they sad they were catching fish. Shacks obviously haven't been moved so far. Obvious tell tale signs.   2 out of 3 afternoons never marked one fish. The other was just a couple. Morning bite 8-8:07   They ran with the pedestrian anglers/corporate drinking groups  'good fishing' reports with their bucket of 1 limit of 10" saugers.   Signed, Disappointed Schnook from Chicago
