Agreed Bigfatbert! The closest to our location (Frazer/Smarts) is Wolf Bay and we arent too fond of their offerings, set up, etc....We do make the trek to Vermilion Club 5 or 6 times a summer, which we always enjoy but always dicey getting a boat slip.....Wish there was a closer options.....

My personal experience with one of the owners -- I don't know which one -- was extremely positive. One of them plowed open the public landing so that I could pull my boat out of the lake after the 2ft blizzard in Nov'2016. He was very nice and helpful. On the other hand, I couldn't stand what they did to The Landing from an operations standpoint. The place looks beautiful but the prices and experience were not what I wanted, so I stopped going. Hopefully the new owners have a feel for what is wanted. There seems to be plenty of feedback on here and Facebook to guide the new owners towards success.

Found this in the comments off the FB post. Sounds like the new owner will appreciate all of his customers, not just  the yuppies.

It sounds like they will be absentee owners with hired management.     I find that worrisome, but have my fingers crossed.   

It seems like places do better when the owners badly need them to be successful and are there pouring beer or scooping ice cream.

ps...

Note, reading the above article makes it sound much more promising.  I'm pulling for them.

Well the water is open next to The Landing! I saw a few folks there last Friday, likely working to get the place set up. I'll definitely be stopping in for beers.

We loved the landing prior to the “new owners” and there changes to menu , prices , servers , and bartenders/ ie over all atmosphere.  My wife and I would eat there some 3/4 times a week during our cabin trip.  

 

Just hoping the new owners return the place back to the way it was ( fish fry, cheap burger night , great nachos , walleye sandwich,  pizza , 2$ tappers etc…… 

 

Throw in the best mlb game of the day or sports center and we will be back 3/4 times a week.

 

Really wishing them well for the coming season …

I think it took a true idiot /snob/pr!ck to ruin a place like the Landing.  I see that place as a total money maker and only wish I had the financial backing to have made a move to purchase it. Especially with Bayview out of the picture ,that place could be/should be the hottest place on the lake.  Absolutely no reason that place can't be packed from open to close on a daily basis. 

 

The vibe I'm getting from the new ownership is they are going to bring it back to more of a sports bar/destination bar on the lake.  I think they have heard the community and will be responding in kind.  I look forward to  boating over and enjoying some brews and food on that patio again this summer.

@BRULEDRIFTER We're on the east end of the lake, and we're all hoping that the Landing opens and thrives.  It is a great boat ride to the west end to have lunch.  Just an aside,  I talked to Ryan Horan three weeks ago and was told by him that they plan to have Bayview open for Fishing Opener.  The "Permanently Closed" sign is down on Hwy 77.  He also told me that they are putting in a completely new docking system that will accommodate more Bayview boats, and have reserved docks for the new campground.  We'll wait and see.  No opinions here, just stating what I was told by RH.

Interesting...

 

I will be up on Vermilion this weekend opening up the wife's family cabin and back up again for Fishing Opener. I am looking forward to checking out what the new owners have done with The Landing.

      We came up yesterday & didn't see the little trailer they use there yet. The cameras at The Narrows were showing a lot of open water going west too, when I looked this morning

      last 2 evenings have been fantastic.  Bird activity has been "predictable" and often. The group 3 toms are running on borrowed time now.  They made a mistake last night, however, Isaac froze and didnt pull the trigger.  Until next time.

      tight lines.

      I understand it was certified. I simply stated that I saw a video that shows what looks to be a hook in the back of the fish. And then you asked where this video was at so I posted the link to the video. It doesn’t matter to me if it was snagged or not.
