Nice days ahead on Lake Vermilion

Nice days ahead on Lake Vermilion should offer up some great fishing before the next round of rain comes our way.  We are in the thick of the end of the season wrap up, and will enjoy being outdoors the next three days when 60 degree temps tempt us to sneak out on the water.  BUT, the weather that follows later in the week will [...]

The Sun Sets on another great Lake Vermilion season

The sun sets on another great Lake Vermilion season for us at Everett Bay Lodge.  Thanks to Brian Horn for sharing his timely photo! The last week of the season was a mix of guests taking advantage of the full week on the lake while others slipped away for a long weekend.  Those that spent the week experienced the usual fluctuations of weather with some [...]

September fishing action on Lake Vermilion

September fishing action on Lake Vermilion was best for walleyes, perch and some normally elusive crappies.  First for the crappies.  While they are most often caught in the early part of the season, a couple different cabins happened upon them.  They caught some nice sized ones in 30+ feet of water.  Several other guests caught some smallies remarking on the aggressive fight they offered.  Musky [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Lake Vermilion Fishing News

Lake Vermilion fishing news finds us at the end of July, with some guests working to catch their walleyes while others have capitalized on more cooperative bass.  Unfortunately last week was frustrating for several guests who found huge pods of fish on the screen that were less than eager to bite.  There were some who did well with limits of walleyes on crawlers, but more [...]
