Lake Vermilion December ice 2019

Lake Vermilion December ice 2019 was getting a nice assist from some really cold temperatures the week before Christmas, but there remains a fair amount of slush in many areas, so please be cautious.  We had a good number of cold nights and single degree highs, but warmer than normal temps over the weekend made for some heavy wet snow.  Today's couple inches was more heavy stuff.  There is another storm forecast for this weekend.  [...]

Lake Vermilion 2019-20 ice getting a nice start

Lake Vermilion 2019-20 ice is getting a nice start with plenty of cold weather and a forecast of more to come.  The 10 day outlook only calls for one day with a high of 32 degrees and everything else below freezing. Seems a little early and redundant as well, but here is our annual reminder - STAY SAFE!   Visit this link to info on the DNR site regarding ice safety.  https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/ice/thickness.html As far as [...]

The Sun Sets on another great Lake Vermilion season

The sun sets on another great Lake Vermilion season for us at Everett Bay Lodge.  Thanks to Brian Horn for sharing his timely photo! The last week of the season was a mix of guests taking advantage of the full week on the lake while others slipped away for a long weekend.  Those that spent the week experienced the usual fluctuations of weather with some great days competing with rainy days.  A few groups jumped [...]

September fishing action on Lake Vermilion

September fishing action on Lake Vermilion was best for walleyes, perch and some normally elusive crappies.  First for the crappies.  While they are most often caught in the early part of the season, a couple different cabins happened upon them.  They caught some nice sized ones in 30+ feet of water.  Several other guests caught some smallies remarking on the aggressive fight they offered.  Musky action was limited to seeing several but nothing in the [...]
