Lake Vermilion fishing news June 10th

Lake Vermilion fishing news June 10th is varied in both success and species being caught.  We had a resort full of many returning guests who are usually a pretty good barometer of the fishing.  It was up and down.  Some cabins had their usual fish frys and took limits home while others seemed to struggle a bit.  There were definitely some hot bite windows.  These [...]

Lake Vermilion late May fishing

Lake Vermilion late May fishing has continued to show some inconsistency.  While some guests have been happy with their success, others have found a tough bite.  Minnows continue to be the bait of choice for the walleyes and jumbo perch, and artificials are producing bass and northerns. It is redundant, but the bigger walleyes are still shallow.  Lots of smaller ones and eaters are being [...]

Lake Vermilion fishing mid-May

Lake Vermilion fishing mid-May has gotten mixed reviews.   Depends on who you ask AND when you ask them.  We had 9 out of 10 cabins with returning guests this past weekend, so it was a pretty experienced Lake Vermilion crowd.  While the City Auto Glass teams had to endure the conditions on Saturday, others found the cold wind and spotty showers a deterrent.  For many [...]

Lake Vermilion still offering up walleyes.

October 2018 Lake Vermilion is still offering up walleyes for those that have kept their boats in the water as the deer opener approaches, but the end is in sight.  The usual fall tactics of trolling crank baits around 2 m.p.h. and lindy rigging deep spots with nice size minnows have continued to produce nice fish.  The water temp was barely above 40 [...]

2018 Season is in the books

2018 season is in the books..all except for the final blasts of color on the trees. Fall 2018 The final weekend of fishing for our guests was pretty decent, with several cabins catching limits and more slot fish released.  Eric and a buddy headed out on Sunday, and while the temperatures were low, they managed to catch several walleyes, a couple limits of [...]

Late September fishing on Lake Vermilion

September 2018 Late September fishing on Lake Vermilion was interrupted by rain much of the week, and those who made the best of it had mixed results.  Colder than normal temperatures would have normally moved fish into their deeper fall spots, but we had reports of fish being caught in the early September depths, 16 - 28 feet, on the edges of structure.  [...]
