Recommended Posts

A couple buddies and me are heading up next weekend to do some ice fishing and was wondering if there is anywhere to get breakfast or dinner in Crane Lake. Not sure where we are staying yet.

At the end of the crane lake road is the voyageur lodge, there a full bar and restraunt, I'm not sure of there hours but you could look up there web site and see if they list them, they also have a web cam that shows the lake. And on the road to crane from orr is a couple diners, one is the VRT and there is another one but I can't remeber the name.

The Voyagaire is closed until after Xmas so I will have to check VRT out. Thanks

Besides the VRT, there is a resort that I think is called Trails End that my brother says is pretty good. I've eaten at the little bar at the start of the Echo Trail and that was decent, but I can't remember the name of the place. I'm not sure if any of these places will have breakfast, or even be open for that matter. I know it's kind of "inbetween season" for them.

I talked to the Trails End today and they will be gone next weekend. Anyone know the phone number for VRT?

Elephant Lake Lodge is open on weekends, but if noone is staying in the lodge their hours can be variable. They have had some hunters and ice fishermen the last couple of weekends. We go over to Crane to eat during the summer, but don't know how the road is now.

If you wish to eat there, suggest calling ELL at 800-205-9001 to confirm they are open.

I found the phone nmumber for the golf course that I think is associated with VRT (vermillion river tavern, buyck mn)that number is 218-993-2246. I know it's not golf season but they might still answer the phone. Also I bet you could call the Orr,mn chamber of commerce and they would have the number.

That is the number for the VRT.

Voyagaire may not be open until after Xmas but you could give them a try - 218-993-2266.

Melgeorge's is open.

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore
