Late July fishing on Lake Vermilion

Late July fishing on Lake Vermilion was a bit inconsistent, with some guests doing well while others seemed to struggle.  There were numbers of walleyes caught, but several were just short of keeper size.  On the flip-side there were some slot fish released.  The Tinsley guys bumped their May trip back to July to catch some kinder weather, and while the conditions were definitely nicer, the fish were in their typical summer spots, leaving them fishing lots of spots that… Read More »

Lake Vermilion July fishing

July is moving along quickly, with the past week again producing decent numbers of walleyes for many guests, mostly perfect for the skillet.  Mike & Peggy Stone spent their anniversary up here, and as shown above, had several decent outings.  When a visit to Zup’s for fish fry fixins jumps into your plans, its a good day!  They caught each time they left the dock.  The Slater / Anderson group spent some time with Cliff, and though the first day… Read More »

What are the walleyes eating on Lake Vermilion?

What are the walleyes eating on Lake Vermilion?  Guests who caught their limits of eaters found both crawlers and leeches to produce fish.  There was an abundance of action for some of our guests who caught plenty of numbers, but big fish were harder to find.  The Buans were back in on Sunday morning cleaning some eaters, and everyone in the boat caught, so it was a fun way to start their week.  While Jason had the fish cleaning honors… Read More »

Lake Vermilion July 4th week fishing news

Lake Vermilion July 4th week fishing news – with the holiday falling midweek, while the resort was full it seemed as though lake activity was a little less social and those fishing had decent results.  Even though the weather was threatening, the July 4th festivities were well received, with the fireworks adding a nice finish to a full list of activities. We had several Lake Vermilion first timers with us, and many of those that fished had walleye meals, took… Read More »

Lake Vermilion June wrap up

Lake Vermilion June wrap up found the last week of June a pretty solid fishing week for many of our guests.  As noted at the start of the week, several returning guests found their way onto some great eater walleyes on Sunday, and found the same general area to produce nearly every time they hit it.  A couple times the year class they caught was just below eater size, but they caught some nice keepers later in the week too. … Read More »

June fishing on Lake Vermilion stays strong

While the minnows have been put away for the most part, there continues to be a nice leech bite… Read More »

June kicks off strong on Lake Vermilion

June kicks off strong on Lake Vermilion with most of our guests pleased with their outings.  With many returning guests this past week, they took the lousy weather of Saturday evening in stride and started their fishing on Sunday.  Virgil’s crew of 8 had a fish fry every other day and caught the last 5 they needed on Thursday afternoon for each guy to take his limit home on Friday.  They know how to make the most of their 5… Read More »

How’s the fishing on Lake Vermilion?

How’s the fishing on Lake Vermilion?  Depends on the day.  With the drastic change in weather, the fishing has been inconsistent to say the least.  While some groups have caught their fish, others have had to hunt a little harder.  Spots that worked in the 80 degree stretch went dry when the water temp fell over 10 degrees, making the shallow bite more productive again.  Even those who typically rely on lindy rigs have found the switch to a leech… Read More »
