The Johnsons and their grandson Jordan were just short of their limits on a 1/2 day outing when they arrived on Saturday, Jordan taking big fish honors with a 23″ walleye he caught & released. Their next 2 days on the lake were… Read More »

Good Lake Vermilion August fishing started off with a mixed week. The first part of the week was a little tough, but the Wednesday cool down and increased winds really picked things up. While we usually expect a cold front to have the opposite effect, this time after several days of flat calm water and warmth, the more than 15 degree temp drop and the increase in chop churned things up enough to get things going. Lake Vermilion water temp… Read More »
Late July fishing on Lake Vermilion was a bit inconsistent, with some guests doing well while others seemed to struggle. There were numbers of walleyes caught, but several were just short of keeper size. On the flip-side there were some slot fish released. The Tinsley guys bumped their May trip back to July to catch some kinder weather, and while the conditions were definitely nicer, the fish were in their typical summer spots, leaving them fishing lots of spots that… Read More »

They caught each time they left the dock. The Slater / Anderson group spent some time with Cliff, and though the first day… Read More »
What are the walleyes eating on Lake Vermilion? Guests who caught their limits of eaters found both crawlers and leeches to produce fish. There was an abundance of action for some of our guests who caught plenty of numbers, but big fish were harder to find. The Buans were back in on Sunday morning cleaning some eaters, and everyone in the boat caught, so it was a fun way to start their week. While Jason had the fish cleaning honors… Read More »

Lake Vermilion June wrap up found the last week of June a pretty solid fishing week for many of our guests. As noted at the start of the week, several returning guests found their way onto some great eater walleyes on Sunday, and found the same general area to produce nearly every time they hit it. A couple times the year class they caught was just below eater size, but they caught some nice keepers later in the week too. … Read More »
