Lake Vermilion Memorial Day weekend fishing news

Lake Vermilion Memorial Day weekend fishing news found mixed results, with the water temp spiking in the shallow bays to push 80 degrees, moving shallow fish in search of deeper, cooler water.   While some guests limited out there were spans of time when the high sun and unusually warm heat made the mid day bite a little tough. Earlier in the week, Brad & Jane Ayer had good success fishing deeper spots, 30 – 35 feet, eating many meals of… Read More »

Lake Vermilion 2018 opener will be ice free, with time to spare.

Lake Vermilion 2018 opener will be ice free, with time to spare.  What do you get when you mix a nice steady chop and an all day soaker?  Open water as far as the eye can see.  While Everett Bay opened up several days ago, yesterday’s weather took its toll on the ice, and a walk across the road to see what Big Bay had to offer found this:   Isn’t that a pretty sight?  Wish the picture was clearer,… Read More »

Chicagoland Fishing, Travel & Outdoor Show in Schaumburg

Chicagoland Fishing, Travel & Outdoor Show in Schaumburg is in the books, and we can’t even begin to count the number of familiar faces we saw there.  It was terrific to catch up midyear with the many guests who were here in 2017 and are heading back up in 2018.  Seeing all that gear makes everyone pretty anxious to get up north.  We also crossed paths with prior year guests who have missed their time up on beautiful Lake Vermilion,… Read More »

Lake Vermilion January snow

  Better late than never — with just a few days of winter break left before Eric and Val head back to school, about 9 inches of snow is just what the snowmobile trails needed.  While the trails had been groomed the snow was minimal and the warm temps on Wednesday were pretty hard on the skating rink .  This snow and the forecast for cold temps returning are just what we were hoping for.   If you are going to… Read More »

2017 Season winds down on Lake Vermilion

2017 season winds down for us on Lake Vermilion as we are wrapping up the winterizing of cabins, pulling docks and storing boats.  The last part of September was good for several guests, like the Schulmeisters, who ate lots of fish as they caught their walleye limits all but one of their days here, primarily trolling crankbaits.  Lon caught his PR smallie, a 21.25″; Some of the other late September nice ones included a 4 lb smallie by Rick Boers,… Read More »
