Lake Vermilion mid-September fishing

Lake Vermilion mid-September fishing news has varied, with some guests doing very well on walleyes and jumbo perch while others have spent their time chasing muskies.  While muskies have been seen in both weeds and on the rocks, they have been reluctant to bite in most cases.  Dan Andrews was able to boat a couple – a 47″ and a 45″- but those were the recent muskie highlights.   Guests who were targeting northerns had great success last week too,… Read More »

Lake Vermilion late summer fishing

Lake Vermilion late summer fishing produced mixed results for our guests this past week.  The Lannings described it as a good week of fishing, with 3 muskies, plenty of smallies, some northerns and lastly walleyes for the skillet.  Seemed like there were days that were kind of tough for everyone, and then days when several cabins did well, but they had to put their time in.  We snuck out mid-day for a couple hours around lunchtime once we got our… Read More »

Late August Lake Vermilion fishing

Late August Lake Vermilion fishing produced good results for many of our guests this past week.  The muskie action was a little more consistent with several fish over 40″ caught as well as some under 40″ too.  The walleye bite was pretty good throughout the week once the cold front effects passed, with crawlers continuing to be the preferred bait.  Several cabins ate MANY fish meals and were able to reload their limits to take fish home with them.  Add… Read More »

Lake Vermilion fishing mid August

Lake Vermilion fishing mid August found most of last week’s guests doing well.  Some PR muskies were caught, like the 52″ caught by Mark Presnail, and a good number of guests made daily trips to the bait house to clean their catch of Lake Vermilion walleyes.  There were several walleyes too big to keep, but eater size walleyes and perch were plentiful, with several guests reporting eating fish every day and replenishing their limits to take some home as well….

Lake Vermilion fishing action

Lake Vermilion fishing action continues to produce a nice variety of fish.  Several cabins reported weeks of fishing above their expectations, like the Korolewskis, who ate walleyes every day they were here, crediting their first day outing with a recommended guide for helping them narrow down their hunt on this first time trip to Lake Vermilion.  More interested in the Lake Vermilion bass fishing, James and Laura Rush honed in on the smallies and caught every day, with a shorter… Read More »

August fishing on Lake Vermilion

  August fishing on Lake Vermilion has found smallmouth and largemouth bass action staying strong.  A good number of decent bass have been caught and released, along with a couple outings of over 30 northern caught, several in the 30 – 36″ range.  Walleye fishing has continued to produce mainly eater size fish, but we’d expect to see some larger ones as the weeks in August move ahead toward September.  Bluegill action offering up some good hand sized eaters was… Read More »

Lake Vermilion July fishing ended better than it started.

Lake Vermilion July fishing ended better than it started, with the last few days of the month finding the walleyes ready to eat.  The middle part of the month found conditions a little tougher than usual, as both perch and crayfish provided ample food for the many, many walleyes that were marked but not biting.  Fortunately as the last week of the month moved along so did the stubborn bite, and eventually both crawlers and leeches produced many limits of… Read More »
