Lake Vermilion January snow

  Better late than never — with just a few days of winter break left before Eric and Val head back to school, about 9 inches of snow is just what the snowmobile trails needed.  While the trails had been groomed the snow was minimal and the warm temps on Wednesday were pretty hard on the skating rink .  This snow and the forecast for cold temps returning are just what we were hoping for.   If you are going to… Read More »

2017 Season winds down on Lake Vermilion

2017 season winds down for us on Lake Vermilion as we are wrapping up the winterizing of cabins, pulling docks and storing boats.  The last part of September was good for several guests, like the Schulmeisters, who ate lots of fish as they caught their walleye limits all but one of their days here, primarily trolling crankbaits.  Lon caught his PR smallie, a 21.25″; Some of the other late September nice ones included a 4 lb smallie by Rick Boers,… Read More »

Lake Vermilion fall fishing

Perseverance paid off for Jeff Lovell.  While everyone catches their PR when they catch their first Muskie, Jeff notched a pretty high mark with this 53″ Lake Vermilion musky as his first one.  Matched the size of the largest of his dad Jerry too, so they will both have to stay at it to get outright bragging rights.  Although the first part of their stay was less productive with limited fish seen, the last couple days they have raised some… Read More »

Lake Vermilion September fishing

Lake Vermilion September fishing has been up and down, with a handful of windy and cooler than average rainy days making things tough.  The cold front conditions of the past week definitely slowed things down, but this week’s forecast of higher than average temps, high 70’s and even over 80, will likely turn up the muskie action. Ron & Teri Vigue caught their limits on the tried and true 1/2 crawler.  In general, most have been caught in 12 –… Read More »

Lake Vermilion late summer pattern settles in

Lake Vermilion later summer pattern has begun to settle in, with this past week producing plenty of fish for the skillet.  We had many, many young anglers at the resort this week, and much credit goes out to the dedicated dads that spent the week getting them on fish.  Add the group of tournament anglers who spent the week preparing for and participating in the MN AIM Pro Walleye Series State Championship held on Lake Vermilion, and the Coury family… Read More »

Lake Vermilion fishing news

Lake Vermilion fishing finds the latter part of August settling into a normal pattern.  The musky action was pretty steady last week, with several caught and many seen and missed.  Those that targeted northern reported catching decent numbers but not trophy size fish.  The smallmouth bass action continued to provide fun as well.  Leeches have been difficult to get, but fortunately the walleye bite on crawlers has picked up. Here is a nice musky Rian Robarge caught and released.  Thanks… Read More »

August fishing on Lake Vermilion

August fishing on Lake Vermilion has been about what you would expect for this time of year.  A cold rain mid-week led to a water temp drop of 4 degrees, but we are back up to 72 degrees.  There are definitely prime windows when fish have been active, but guests reported marking many fish that they couldn’t get to bite. The same applied to the muskies.  While several were seen and followed at various times of day, the Cleinmark guys… Read More »

Summer has arrived on Lake Vermilion

Summer has arrived on Lake Vermilion, although it took a long time to get here!  Water temps took a nice jump up this past week, climbing over 5 degrees to pass the 80 degree mark.  So what’s that done to the fishing?  Depends who you ask.  It definitely made the pool a popular place as many families with children spent the week with us on Lake Vermilion. The walleye fishing was reported to be strong and steady for some, while… Read More »
