Lake Vermilion’s official ice out date April 30, 2019

The DNR has listed Lake Vermilion's official ice out date April 30, 2019 - but there is still a little work to be done.   This is what is left on the south shore of Big Bay, on the other side of the peninsula from us at 7 a.m. on May 1st.  Wind is out of the east less than 10 mph but it is taking its toll on this little bit of ice that is [...]

Lake Vermilion ice out 2019 – Everett Bay clear

Lake Vermilion ice out 2019 - Everett Bay clear - April 26th.  If there is any ice left on our bay, it is tucked in the far east corner.  A trip up the road to take some video of the great sound the ice makes as it is jostled around by the waves was unproductive.  As this picture shows, looking eastward from the narrows, a boat ride would be necessary to accomplish that task.

Lake Vermilion Hatchery Sucker net

The Lake Vermilion Hatchery sucker net provided a bit of frenzied action.  A majority of the first day's catch on Saturday, April 20th was suckers, as is usually the case.  Take a look: https://youtu.be/bYAlzAdVhI0 Suckers are sold for $10 / 100 pounds, and make their way to smokers across the area.  For more details about the Vermilion Lake Association's Sucker Sale which kicks off this morning, visit their site: https://www.vermilionlakeassociation.org/find-the-smoker-sucker-sales-to-begin-soon/?fbclid=IwAR3H_2Cd25VIC1qjzhmK26PBCk4pFwCeC7ThEGi1Gf1hZdwJqGqiAYjrhGs If you missed our post [...]

Lake Vermilion Pike River hatchery 2019

Lake Vermilion Pike River hatchery 2019 is off and running.  Day 1, April 20th, was largely dominated by thousands of pounds of suckers.  Day 2 finds the arrival of more walleyes in the nets.  This video gives you a glimpse of the early stage of sorting.  Many of the walleyes caught are "green" or not ready for the process to begin.  They are measured and funneled or tossed into the appropriate sorting carriages.   Many suckers [...]

It has a wonderful deck overlooking your dock space and a perfect spot on the Everett Bay Lodge resort property.
