Everett Bay Lodge – Recent History

As resort owners sitting out at a campfire, the 2nd question we usually get from our guests is “How did you ever end up here doing this?”  Of course you can all guess what the 1st question is….”Where are the fish biting?” When we get that question we always wonder if they are asking because they think owning and operating a resort in northeastern Minnesota seems like a great way of life – OR – they think we are nuts….

2016 Sport Shows continue

2016 Sport shows continue with St. Cloud in full swing and St. Paul and Chicago – Schaumburg in the books.  It was wonderful to see familiar faces at the shows and we look forward to seeing more of you at the Milwaukee and Sioux Falls shows in March.  Many weeks are filling in nicely, but unfortunately that has meant we have had to post the “no vacancy” sign to some who have been slow to make their plans. If you… Read More »

Lake Vermilion 2015 season winding down @ Everett Bay Lodge

Greetings from the Northwoods!  Last year at this time the ice had completely covered Everett Bay.  What a difference a year can make!   So far the fall has turned out to be one of the most mild we can recall.  Nonetheless, it is time to wrap up the resort season and look ahead to 2016, our 17th season at the resort. As fishing years go, “inconsistent” would probably be the single word that best describes 2015.  When it was good,… Read More »

Lake Vermilion mid September fishing

Lake Vermilion mid September fishing – Everett Bay Lodge guests have had mixed results.  August ended with some really high temps only to find us lighting cabin heaters and sleeping with the windows closed as the first week of September ended.  Now we are back to 80 degrees, nice green grass, and some inconsistent fishing.   Haven’t had a lot of really big fish caught, but those who caught walleyes caught some very nice eaters.  The Rolfsons ate fish every… Read More »

Lake Vermilion August fishing

Lake Vermilion August fishing this past week was good at times, and a struggle largely due to unusual weather at other times.  Some first time Lake Vermilion anglers caught their limits to take caught home and ate fish here too, but it wasn’t that easy for everyone.  Smallies continue to be the most active catch, with a good number of 3 + pounders caught & released.  Three muskies were reported between 44 & 47 inches.  Fish our guests told us about were:… Read More »

Mid August Lake Vermilion fishing – Everett Bay Lodge

Mid August Lake Vermilion fishing – Everett Bay Lodge guests had mixed results.  In short, some of everything was caught, but it wasn’t the easiest week on the lake.  Guys fishing for Bass caught Muskies, guys fishing for Muskies caught Bass, and there were some walleyes caught – both eaters and larger ones.  The Henseler boys along with nearly 40 of their relatives, spent their family reunion up here, and they quickly realized a net would have been a good… Read More »

Lake Vermilion Early August fishing

Lake Vermilion early August fishing found the Muskies and Smallmouth Bass continuing to steal the show.  Just ask Zach Brennan, who spent the week boating 7 muskies, the largest a 53.5″ Personal Record for him.   He caught 3 that were over the 50″ mark.  Not a bad way to celebrate High School graduation before he heads off to college!   Check out the photo album on our resort  Facebook page – “Zach Brennan’s week on Lake Vermilion” to see… Read More »

Lake Vermilion late July fishing

Lake Vermilion late July fishing brought mixed results, largely due to a longer than usual stretch of windy days.  7 of 10 cabins had returning guests with lots of years of experience on the Big V, and it was not as easy as usual for them.  High temps late last week and early this week brought Big Bay surface water temps into the 80 degree range, only to find them drop by over 10 degrees as several days of high… Read More »
