We are looking forward to a great St. Paul Sport Show, beginning Thursday, January 12th, and running through Sunday. That show is always a great opportunity to catch up with returning guests who stop by to say “Hi!” as well as meet new guests looking for their Fishing, Families and FUN adventure up north. Lake Vermilion is just the place. Look for Booth #2 and the Everett Bay Lodge sign.

We are in the midst of putting the “finishing touches” on the 2013 resort season. While we certainly enjoyed the company of our “regular” guests who make each season great, we were happy to welcome a good number of returning guests who had missed a few years, but found their way back up north to enjoy beautiful Lake Vermilion. We are truly blessed to have so many wonderful customers and appreciate your business. The stubborn May ice delayed the action… Read More »

While we have been fortunate to have had many great and talented hockey coaches here at the resort with us over the years, and we always enjoy sitting around the fire or pool hearing about the previous season and next year’s hopes, here is a little history for you hockey junkies out there! Shortly after our arrival at Everett Bay Lodge, we had a visit from a family that had managed the resort many years back. They told us much of what… Read More »
In addition to this week’s Muskie action reported on the previous post, this bite was more of the same. “Eater” walleyes and some bigger ones. Randy Hodgin and George Schafer had to work for what they caught, but in the end they caught a nice mix of walleyes to eat and a nice list of fish they released. Along the same lines, the Wagner crew spent 3 days fishing Lake Vermilion and part of their time was with Lake Vermilion… Read More »
As the regular season winds down, as usual, the walleyes get bigger and one needn’t travel far. Cloud cover and a.m. or evening windows have been the most productive, with our guests doing best on crawlers. While the Hodgins have caught and released a good number of fish in the slot range, they have also caught the makings of a nice fish fry too. The Manners crew spent their usual long weekend, and had a very productive beginning and… Read More »
Not much change since the past week. Walleyes are still in intermediate depths, mainly 18 – 24 feet, either rock or sand/mud bottom. However, one group this week is doing well even shallower, mainly 15 feet. Many report finding fish on almost any main lake structure, but it is a matter of sorting out which spots are holding the bigger fish. Last week there was plenty of golf and sightseeing in the mix for guests, but a couple nice fish… Read More »
Fall has finally arrived. After near record temps for several days on end, a high of 61 degrees today was a welcome change. Over the past week, the walleye fishing was the highlight of the week, with some first time Lake Vermilion anglers catching plenty of walleyes off the pontoon. Plenty of eaters were caught as evidenced by the fish cleaning activity, and several good size fish were released as well. The Thurks brought their grandson Kenny along, and he… Read More »
Making up for lost time as it relates to the warm days this past week. After cooler than expected temps for the previous several weeks, this past week was well above average for daytime high temps, but the wind that accompanied it made things a little more comfortable. We had some first time guests with us this past week, and walleye success was mixed. A couple groups caught more than average numbers of smaller walleyes, which bodes well for coming… Read More »
