Lake Vermilion 2014 open water season in the books!!

Just in time as the ice on the bay has formed with no plans to retreat.  The Bowman crew finished up their annual week long stay taking advantage of every bit of Everett Bay’s last open water Mother Nature had to offer.  The water temps dropped just as the crew arrived, and it was definitely a week of transition.   We appreciate Bob Bowman’s reliability in getting us some end of the season pictures!  Still a handful of items on… Read More »

Lake Vermilion 2014 season winding down

We continue to work our way through the season wrap up “to do” list, but couldn’t help ourselves on Wednesday when we couldn’t resist the urge to head out on the lake one last time.  While it was a windy day, it didn’t stop the walleyes from aggressively hammering our minnows – chubs and light pike – didn’t seem to matter which.  Caught plenty to eat, more than enough for a family fish fry with some jumbo perch and a… Read More »

September action stayed strong!

While the weather wasn’t the most cooperative, Tom Maki was rewarded for his efforts with this nice 50.75″ Lake Vermilion September muskie.  He now has 5 over the 50″ mark, with 4 of them coming from Lake Vermilion. Along other lines, the walleye fishing was up and down over the past week, with several groups reporting successful trips, although they had to work for what they got.  The Huber crew reported catches of smaller fish during the day and larger,… Read More »

Lake Vermilion September fishing

The past few weeks have flown by with the first week of the month finding the Minnesota B.A.S.S. Nation Tournament of Champions on the lake.  With 31 clubs sending 200 anglers the boat launch saw plenty of action as pre-fishing was going on.  The early part of the week was warmer and reports were favorable for good numbers and good size bass.  There were also reports of several muskies and walleyes caught.  A cold front came through though and seemed… Read More »

Lake Vermilion fishing – August 24, 2104

As the last week of August kicks off we wrap up a week that was short on great weather – kind of a gloomy week, finding us often wishing it would just let loose and rain, rather than threaten to rain for hours on end.  When the sun did poke through things warmed up quickly. Last Saturday night it looked like it might be a great week for muskies as 16 year old Justin Fuller boated his 46″ personal record… Read More »

Lake Vermilion fishing – August 18, 2014

Last week it was a week of plentiful bass and some “firsts” and “biggest” muskies.  Paul Bilodeau, Sr. reported a 50″ muskie, his personal best, and a couple other guests also caught their first muskies.  Once again there were good numbers of smallmouth bass caught, and some nice northerns were caught when they chased muskie baits.  Seemed like the walleyes were a little tougher to come by, but reports were that Friday night things were pretty good, with several guests… Read More »

Good Lake Vermilion Fishing Continues – August 10, 2014

  MOV_8398.MOV Thanks for Bill Fitzgerald for sending us this video clip of some Lake Vermilion muskie action last week.  We had so many good photo submissions this week that it was too hard to pick just a couple.  Visit our facebook page:  Everett.Bay.Lodge.Lake.Vermilion and check out some of the great catches and photos our guests shared with us.  As the title says – it was another good week of fishing for a good number of our guests. Walleyes were… Read More »

Lake Vermilion fishing report – August 3, 2014

July wrapped up with a nice rebound for walleye fishing.  After a couple weeks of more difficult walleye fishing than we’d seen all season, things were back on track for many of our guests – both Lake Vermilion returners and several Lake Vermilion first timers.  As is normal for this time of year, both walleyes and crawlers produced fish, with numbers coming on crawlers and bigger fish liking the leeches – but that depended on who you ask.  When they… Read More »
