Late July fishing on Lake Vermilion

Late July fishing on Lake Vermilion had its ups and downs last week, with walleyes beginning to spring back from a middle of the month tougher bite.  Musky fishing wasn't spectacular, but there were fish seen on numerous spots and several near misses made for some excitement.   There were a few sub 40's caught.   As has been the case, the most consistent bite has been [...]

Lake Vermilion family resort fun

Lake Vermilion family resort fun was the name of the game last week.  From campfires, to paddle boarding, to swimming, to tether ball... family vacation season was in full swing.     Add in some impressive evening volleyball, and things were hopping! How was the fishing?  Never a popular answer, but it really depended on who you asked.  Some guests did well all week long, while [...]

Lake Vermilion area attractions

Lake Vermilion area attractions kept 8 year old Eli and 5 year old Abel busy as they spent last week taking advantage of the many things to see and do in Northeast Minnesota.  Rain in the early part of their stay didn't get in the way of their trip to the Soudan Mine https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/state_parks/lake_vermilion_soudan/tours.html.  They were especially interested in taking in some of the local [...]

Lake Vermilion June fishing news

Lake Vermilion June fishing news includes the long overdue arrival of warmer temperatures.  The water temp is finally making its move up, with Everett Bay reaching 75 degrees after stalling in the 60's for several weeks.  The night time lows are predicted to stay in the 50's so it should help avoid those big overnight drops.  After another chilly start to the week, guests welcomed [...]

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 [...]
