The 2021 Larry Ramsell Muskie Outing at Vermilion Dam Lodge taking place this week!

2021 Larry Ramsell Muskie Outing

October 7-10th, 2020
 Package includes lodging, meals, boat docking, and presentations.

Welcome to our 20th annual Larry Ramsell Musky outing. We encourage everyone to share information, enjoy some great meals, and get together in the evening for some great presentations and open discussions. Larry Ramsell has spent many years of his life dedicated to the sport. He has researched many of the largest musky catches ever recorded, is the past President of Muskies Inc, has caught Muskies up to 57 inches and fished many of the best lakes in Canada and the U.S. We hope you enjoy the weekend and catch a monster. Our hope is everyone attending will learn something new about Musky fishing and share some of their own knowledge with others around them.


Lunch: Lunches will be ready for pickup in morning following breakfast. After breakfast there will be a table set up where you can pick up your lunch and drinks. Insulated lunch bags will be sent out with each boat. Please make sure to bring the bags back in at night to the lodge for the next day. If you already have a cooler or insulated bag please bring it down with you for breakfast so you can take your Lunch with you.

Dinner: Served in the meeting area at 7:00 pm. Presentations each night will follow dinner (approximately at 7:45 pm). Please try to be in before 7 pm if possible to be on time for dinner.

Presentations: Several top Vermilion musky guides will be hired for the weekend to give presentations, guide and offer advice. We also pick names from a hat to choose each day of the outing who will fish in Larry’s boat.

Prize Drawings: Include Guide trips with some of the top Muskie guides on Lake Vermillion as well as Thorne Brothers and Doc Sonar tackle and merchandise.

General Info about Weekend

If you would like to attend and do not have a boat we have rentals available or we have fisherman attending that have room for another fisherman in their boat.

Whether you are an experienced musky fisherman or just want to learn more about it, this weekend is a great opportunity to mix up with some guys that have been chasing muskies for many years.

Lodge game room/bar: We will provide pop, ice and coffee. We also are donating some cases of beer. We will have a donation jar to replenish the beer. We will replenish the beer with what is put in the donation jar each day.

Dock Service: Marty, Austin and Danny will cover our main dock over the weekend. If you need help with electrical cords, ice, or gas. See them.

Boat parking: Once you have a slip or dock spot, please try to keep that Spot. If you have a problem with electrical outlets, let us know.

Extra car parking: We ask that you park extra cars in our parking lot next to the fish house. This will keep the roads open throughout the resort.

Record catches and follows: There will be charts that will give the opportunity to report fish caught. We encourage everyone to record fish caught. This provides the opportunity to see what patterns for lure type, depth, and structure.

Phone/Internet: There is wireless Internet available in the Lodge and in the cabins. Connection information is in the cabin.

Cell phone coverage is limited. We do have a booster in the game room. The best service provider around the resort or on the lake is AT&T

“We really enjoy the opportunity to put this on each year. Your business is greatly appreciated. Please feel free to make yourself at home…let us know if there is anything we can do to help make this a great weekend for you.”
