Virginia Mn. area

I am thinking about applying for a job up in Virginia Mn. I was wondering if any of you live up there or know the area very well. I have the wifes blessing to move north, but I am not familliar with the area except I drove through there heading to Kabetogema once. I see there is not many lakes real close to there. Looks like Lake Vermillion is probably the best bet for fishing. If anyone has any knowledge of the area, I would appreciate some input. Thanks.

I live up in Chisholm, just down the road a ways. I am kind of a newbie to the area too, only been here about 4 years. There are a pile of smaller lakes in the area that I have yet to explore. Vermilion is my fav so far for walleyes. Winnie is also just a little over an hour from here.

If you look on the map there are a lot of smaller lakes within probably 30 miles of the virginia area. Then of course you the Voyagers chain within an hour or so and the Ely area is within a day trip.

So many lakes so little time smile.gif

Rip_Some_Lip,
My In-laws have a cabin 20 miles north of Virginia That I use mostly for hunting. There are more lakes in the area then one would think also fishing in some area Mine Pits. If you like the outdoors Hunting, Fishing, 4 Wheeling, etc. I'm sure you should be able to find something to do smile.gif.
I live in Duluth but I'm sure others from the area will give you some good info.
Take care, Tom (BD110)

There are many lakes besides the Big V around Virginia. It's an outdoorsmens dream to live in this area. Not only is there great fishing and hunting, there is also snowmobile and ATV trails, all over the place. smile.gif

The people are friendly and it's really a great place to raise a family. Houses are cheep and rents are low and the air is clean. Believe me as a long time big city resident, you'll never want to go back after living here. smile.gif

Whiteface is a really nice lake too that is not to far from Virginia. In fact I am taking the Mrs. out there tomorrow afternoon for a little fishing and a shrimp dinner at one of the boat-in campsites on the lake.

I do most of my fishing on the bigger lakes because they are AWESOME and not to far away. Basswood is my FAV!

I've been fishing Whiteface for years. Ooooodles of little walleyes easily to be found. You will have to work to find the big ones though...........Trust me, they are there.........Lots of big pike there too.......My largest is 29lbs.

It is a "clean" community, but good luck being welcomed up there as "one of their own". I've known too many people who have moved up there and not been "accepted", only to leave several years later. These are good people too.

I know I might be stepping on some toes, but I know too many people that are not considered "residents" by the local community, who have lived there for several years. For that reason, I will not move there.......

It is a true sportsmans paradise. You have everything related to the outdoors you want.

Good luck with your decesion!

Thanks for the replies, it makes my decision easier to make if I go that way...lol. I still have to weigh my options and see where I stand. The job pays more starting out than I am making right now and the housing is cheaper. I work 4 day weeks now and will have to work 5's if I get it. I just think it would be great to raise my 3 yr old boy up there (I live in Mankato now). If I get the job, I will post up here and see if I can find some "fishing buddies".
