Lake Vermilion Fisheries Plan

Lake Vermilion Fisheries plan covering the 2017-2022 window is aimed at preserving Lake Vermilion as a sustainable, multi-species fishery.  In addition to addressing fish populations, it also focuses on AIS (aquatic invasive species), habitat, double-crested cormorants and fishing tournaments, incorporating data collected over the past twenty years. The chance to catch a trophy musky over 50 inches drives the Muskellunge goal, and was the area [...]

TAKE A KID FISHING at Everett Bay Lodge

Take a kid fishing at Everett Bay Lodge - Lake Vermilion In a traffic jam got stopped next to this car. "Parents don't frame pictures of their kids playing video games....  TAKE THEM FISHING." Reminded us of the many great families we get to share Lake Vermilion with each summer.  How about a few of these pictures from 2018?  While everyone likes to catch a [...]

Lake Vermilion mid December ice

Lake Vermilion mid December ice didn't change much last week, and the warm sunny weekend made a dent in the snow on the ice.  Ice thickness hadn't made much progress and was still in the 10 - 11" range. The weekend weather was so comfortable it was fine to skip the portable part of the time. That made it easy to move around, which was [...]

2018 Season is in the books

2018 season is in the books..all except for the final blasts of color on the trees. Fall 2018 The final weekend of fishing for our guests was pretty decent, with several cabins catching limits and more slot fish released.  Eric and a buddy headed out on Sunday, and while the temperatures were low, they managed to catch several walleyes, a couple limits of [...]

Late September fishing on Lake Vermilion

September 2018 Late September fishing on Lake Vermilion was interrupted by rain much of the week, and those who made the best of it had mixed results.  Colder than normal temperatures would have normally moved fish into their deeper fall spots, but we had reports of fish being caught in the early September depths, 16 - 28 feet, on the edges of structure.  [...]

Cold and windy on Lake Vermilion

Cold and windy weather made the conditions less than ideal this past week, but it is hard to complain about the weather when you see what the folks on the coast were dealt.  While the Pike River dam had stopped running during a drier than normal August, a good rain early this past week got it running again. It was a week of mixed reports, [...]

Lake Vermilion walleyes and muskies and bass…..

Lake Vermilion walleyes and muskies and bass.....  In typical fashion, the up and down weather of September produced the same up and down fishing action.  The walleye and bass proved to be the most consistent bite last week although they didn't get too much pressure.  Many were scouting the muskies in preparation for the weekend's PMTT Mega tourney.  Here is one caught by Kevin Rabska, [...]

Lake Vermilion fall fishing stays steady

Lake Vermilion fall fishing stays steady, particularly for walleye and small mouth bass.  Add the chance to host college friends for a week, catch plenty of fish for some meals, and laugh, laugh, laugh!  Isn't that what a trip north is all about? September 2018 For our group, trolling crank baits off the back of the pontoon was the easiest option.  It produced [...]
