Lake Vermilion fall fishing news

Lake Vermilion fall fishing news included lots of chatter about the weather.  The past week tested everyone's perseverance.  Although we were happy for the rain, it didn't come at night like we hoped.  Rain suits were key.  Fortunately for many the bite was decent when they were able to get out. Doug Vieth and Larry Kopczyk had a nice outing early in their week catching a mix of walleyes and jumbo perch, including the 21 [...]

Labor Day week on Lake Vermilion offers up mixed bag

Labor Day week on Lake Vermilion offered up a mixed bag as the Lake Vermilion water temp has started its downward slide.  We got out yesterday and found the water temp at 56 degrees in Big Bay, two degrees lower than the day before.  So how did we do?  Well Dave caught his limit of walleyes and a few more small ones, his largest a fat 19".  Diane had limited success, with just one nice [...]

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 musky action picks up.

Lake Vermilion musky action picks up.  There were a good number seen, with multiples on the same spot.  The bite seems to have improved.  Unfortunately there were many near misses along with several lessons learned for next time.  Travis Meintz got a small one on his first trip out on Saturday.  He followed it up with a nice 48" that you can see them boat and release here on the August 14th post they shared [...]

How’s the bite on Lake Vermilion?

How's the bite on Lake Vermilion?  Some days good, other days a little bit tougher.  In most instances, while they didn't slay them every time, experienced walleye seekers got some nice limits, but it took effort.  Again the screens showed plenty of fish, but getting them to cooperate wasn't always easy.  Most guests had enough good windows to get their fish, but they also had to move around.  Seemed like going slowly enough with the [...]
