Nope no new resorts.

Furtman has been launching out of Westwinds Resort for his shows.

The show was probably taped last year with the plan for the resort to open, but then it burned down.

Was it arson? I know a guy that had a really nice place on the West side of the lake that was burned several times. It seems to be a real problem up there, along with auto theft. I went to BSU, one of my friends had her car stolen 3 times in one year. Her parent's brand new suburban was stolen and found torched.

No problems here in Waskish (east end), we had a crime wave a few years back, two retired gals tried to get into the wrong cabin by accident. It is still talked about as the Waskish crime wave.

Let me take that back we had a couple of deals happen. A car also turned up missing but then the farmer remembered he left it at the fields when he went to bring the tractor back. laugh.gif

We don't have those problem around Waskish. Small town with everybody watching and remember we never had much for law enforcemnt around these parts like we do now, the locals took care of it themselves and the crooks would much rather deal with the police then ticked off farmers or our fleet of retired cops, lawyers, jailers, firemen, drug enforcemt officers etc etc. It is one thing to challenge authority but to challenged retired authority is another thing...nothing to do but make a bad guys life a living... grin.gif

"the Waskish Crime Wave" grin.gif That was a scary day. It seems 2 retired ladies here in Waskish were killing the afternoon off sitting in Westwind when another local came in and told them that he was tearing an old cabin down and planned on burning it the next day. He thought that somebody should go look at it before it was burned because it has some handcarved trim work around the windows and doors that maybe should be saved. The 2 ladies agreed to go look at it so they got a map from him and off they went. When they got to the cabin they found that the door was stuck shut. They tried everything including one holding the other up by the armpits so she could kick the door with both feet but they couldn't get the door open. They looked in through the windows and there was a lot of good stuff in that cabin so they went back and gave the door another round. No luck getting the door open but now they were getting hot and thirsty so back to the bar they went. They told the guy that there was some great stuff in that cabin but the door was stuck shut. He gave them a funny look and remarked that they had taken the doors off yesterday. Wrong cabin. grin.gifgrin.gif

I have not heard of any new resort/campgrounds besides West Wind, the area most defiantly could use another resort or two with a decent boat landing, especially on the north and south shores.

There have been a number of resorts, hotels or campgrounds proposed but one thing has stopped them all. Minnesota's wetlands laws. frown.gif

Truly a sad deal, many good opportunities or ventures that would be profitable and help the area but the smallest wet area, even as small as a compact car stops the whole operation.

      We did well Thursday, Friday and Saturday out front of Pine just out of the gap in 19ft. Got on the lake just fine Saturday....was actually better than the previous two days as far as rough water is concerned I thought.

      Welcome back Fishandfowl! Congratulations on your bird. It seems like it has been a tough year for many. Hope you can stick around and share your adventures with us some more.

      I saw the guy who bought our cabin, Ryan Aker, came in 4th. A couple of 7lb fish and i thought i saw a team with a 10lb fish also. Shhhhhh, the shallow is a secret. We fish quite often in 5' or less, Often watching the guides out on the sandy flats from a far

      Last year my family and I were just landing our boat off the hoodoo point access and someone from here recognized my pike master boat and daughter from pictures i shared the year before. He suggested going to some underwater rock formation north of Ely island where he said he did well with jigging raps, which I just so happened to obtain a collection of over the past year or so. We marked a ton of fish in the 26' depth range but could not get those to bite for our life and ended up resorting to old tactics much shallower. I have watched videos of Linders and other anglers doing well with them but have yet to have that same luck. Had a giant on Minnetonka on a jigging rap but ended up getting off before showing itself. So, ill strongly second this on making the jigging rap work this year. On another note these spot lock and conture following features coming out with the new trolling motors is a true game changer. We pulled of on a family favorite spot on a windy day and had a hard time staying on position with my dads old trolling motor. A guy pulled up and had no problem staying were we wanted to be, going to have to be one of the upgrades on the next boat.

      Over the winter, my family acquired some snorkel gear. I know that Vermilion isn't a great lake for clarity, and certainly my bay is at the bottom of the list. However, are there areas of the lake that have decent clarity?

      Welcome to the forum Dave38.  More then likely the tab like the others have said. Did you do anything to the boat to change the weight around like add a live well or battery in different spots?  Is it a wheel or tiller? 
    • PSU
      Any sense to when the walleye tournament results will be posted? Always enjoy reading the names and weights. Aside from Saturday morning, we did very well Thursday-Sunday. LOTS of tiny walleyes in the Frazer/Smart's Bay area, but did manage plenty of keeper fish in 22-35 feet with Lindy's/Jigs and rainbows
    • Wanderer
      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.
    • PRO-V
      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Looks good Cliff! The perch look mighty tasty!
