2018 Season is in the books

2018 season is in the books..all except for the final blasts of color on the trees. Fall 2018 The final weekend of fishing for our guests was pretty decent, with several cabins catching limits and more slot fish released.  Eric and a buddy headed out on Sunday, and while the temperatures were low, they managed to catch several walleyes, a couple limits of eaters.  Everything came on minnows for them.  Crank baits produced [...]

Late September fishing on Lake Vermilion

September 2018 Late September fishing on Lake Vermilion was interrupted by rain much of the week, and those who made the best of it had mixed results.  Colder than normal temperatures would have normally moved fish into their deeper fall spots, but we had reports of fish being caught in the early September depths, 16 - 28 feet, on the edges of structure.  The crankbait bite continued to catch fish, and those chasing [...]

Cold and windy on Lake Vermilion

Cold and windy weather made the conditions less than ideal this past week, but it is hard to complain about the weather when you see what the folks on the coast were dealt.  While the Pike River dam had stopped running during a drier than normal August, a good rain early this past week got it running again. It was a week of mixed reports, with guests like the Rolfsons getting their share of walleyes [...]

Lake Vermilion walleyes and muskies and bass…..

Lake Vermilion walleyes and muskies and bass.....  In typical fashion, the up and down weather of September produced the same up and down fishing action.  The walleye and bass proved to be the most consistent bite last week although they didn't get too much pressure.  Many were scouting the muskies in preparation for the weekend's PMTT Mega tourney.  Here is one caught by Kevin Rabska, putting him on our EBL Wall of Fame. (50.5") [...]

Lake Vermilion fall fishing stays steady

Lake Vermilion fall fishing stays steady, particularly for walleye and small mouth bass.  Add the chance to host college friends for a week, catch plenty of fish for some meals, and laugh, laugh, laugh!  Isn't that what a trip north is all about? September 2018 For our group, trolling crank baits off the back of the pontoon was the easiest option.  It produced fish every time out, with only one outing being "slow".  [...]

Early September Lake Vermilion fishing

            Early September Lake Vermilion walleyes As August wrapped up, the crank bait bite for decent walleyes continued.  We had several cabins of guests report many limits of nice walleyes, eating a couple meals here and taking some home too.  Just the way it is supposed to go! Ozzy and Max, shown above, caught most of their walleyes trolling cranks - the largest just under 20"- and they [...]
