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 [...]
