Lake Vermilion fishing July 12th report ends a week of ups and downs.  Those that stayed with it and put in their time seemed to have success, but it was not one of the easiest weeks of the season.  We were happy to welcome first time Lake Vermilion visitors Ray Miller and his 9 buddies all the way from Ohio.  When a group of ten guys travel all that distance with intentions to eat fish every morning with their breakfast eggs, that can be a daunting task.  Ray was happy to report at check-out that they met the challenge, relying on bluegills for one of the  ten mornings.

As we inch closer to the prime musky window, more fish are being seen and they are getting more aggressive as the water continues to heat up.  Reports of a good number of “missed” chances and wishes for a “re-do” were shared.

Some of the fish we heard about this week include:

Walleyes:  27″ Leon Beachy, 24.5″ Ray Miller, 22″ Leroy Miller & Books Debruhl, 21.5″ Ray Miller, 21.25″ James Miller

Largemouth Bass: 18.25″ Dave Gooden

Muskie: 47″ Leroy Miller

This week has started off with almost 2 inches of rain in about an hour Sunday morning.  The forecast for the next several days calls for a couple more bouts of rain.  Water temp in Big Bay was 74 degrees late last week.

An unexpected cancellation for a 2 week stay from July 18th to August 1st has freed up a 2 bedroom cabin for a spell of time that has been full for months.  We are offering a Cancellation Special.
