Resorts with outdated photos

5 posts in this topic

This forum is a great place to ask about resort recommendations. Have you ever seen pictures in a brochure than drive up there and fined out the pics must have been taken 60 years ago when the place was new? I hate when that happens!

We take pictures to help hold onto memories.

Could be a picture of grandpa that they weren't ready to throw away just yet. smirk.gif

I had to stop work on the boat and come back to this topic.

Crazy I know.

I like old pictures. I can't help imagining what life was like at that time and the story they tell..

Imagine a picture with a man in a flannel shirt and old aluminum boat in the backround. This guy pioneered the area and built the log lodge with nothing but an ax and sweat. The lodge still stands today, over the years the logs show their age. How many guests have come and gone over that time. Young kids then now still return to the lodge with their young.

An other picture with a guy dressed in the finest Cabela wear. Theres a new Lund boat with all the latest electronics in the backround. This guy works in a major city as a computer programmer. Hes on vacation from the Rat Race and drove through heavy traffic to get into Gods Country for the weekend. As he poses for the picture the thought of having to go home haunts him.

I think he meant that the place looked new when the pictures were taken (way back when) and now the resort/cabins are old and run down. I have been there.

      It is a bad idea.  It can spread disease and invasive species.   Don't do it.     Besides, the minnows swim away and within a short time are dispersed so the fish wouldn't see them as a big attraction.

      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.
