Where did August go? Lake Vermilion news from Everett Bay Lodge

Where did August go?  Seems like the 4th of July was just a few weeks ago, and yet we'll flip the calendar to September tomorrow.  And the walleye bite has picked up just in time.  We had a Lake Vermilion water temp of 63 degrees on the shaded side of Big Bay shoreline yesterday morning.  A check of the ten day forecast shows every day's high under 70 degrees.  If that isn't enough to convince [...]

Lake Vermilion August news

Lake Vermilion August news brings more of the same - great weeks for some of our guests...a little tougher for others.  An early stay outing with a guide for the Lane group was productive.They kept several walleyes for the skillet and released the nice 25"er shown above caught by Kelsey.  Guests had mixed reports, with those that caught walleyes doing well with crawlers in 18 - 24 feet.  The Lanes found a good weed bed [...]

Lake Vermilion Fishing News

Lake Vermilion fishing news finds us at the end of July, with some guests working to catch their walleyes while others have capitalized on more cooperative bass.  Unfortunately last week was frustrating for several guests who found huge pods of fish on the screen that were less than eager to bite.  There were some who did well with limits of walleyes on crawlers, but more commonly it was a fish or two on a spot, [...]

Late July fishing on Lake Vermilion

Late July fishing on Lake Vermilion had its ups and downs last week, with walleyes beginning to spring back from a middle of the month tougher bite.  Musky fishing wasn't spectacular, but there were fish seen on numerous spots and several near misses made for some excitement.   There were a few sub 40's caught.   As has been the case, the most consistent bite has been the smallmouth bass, with many guests having good success with [...]
