I personally have just a lodge. I really think that it would just be easier to have two portables rather than one large one. Especially for the times you are fishing by yourself or one other person. If you are always fishing with 3 or 4 guys then it would be worth getting. But personally I wouldn't want it. My buddy and I each have a lodge so we can stack them inside of each other and still be able to load all our gear in one pick up. This still allows us to take four guys with us but we can spread out and still cover some territory.

I bought the village this year and I do like it once set up...It is a little clumsy to set and tear down, so if you plan on moving a lot I would skip it and get one of the other models. I got it to use as more of a "pemanent" style house and works very well if you just set it up in one spot and leave it for the whole trip...I set mine up with swivel seats on both sides and a large gear storage box underneath which adds to the weight but is nice to have..A lot more portable than a wood house...

Thanks for the reply jerkn'm I figured the village wouldn't be as fast to move around with I think i'll either get another lodge, like iffwalleyes said, I usually fish by myself or with 1 or 2 buddys but they all have houses. Just when kids or wife fish with me be nice to have more room. Do have killer deal on a 6800 clam from a buddy might have to get that when the fammily is with, save me some bucks that way.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
