Lake Vermilion fishing news

Lake Vermilion fishing finds the latter part of August settling into a normal pattern.  The musky action was pretty steady last week, with several caught and many seen and missed.  Those that targeted northern reported catching decent numbers but not trophy size fish.  The smallmouth bass action continued to provide fun as well.  Leeches have been difficult to get, but fortunately the walleye bite on crawlers has picked up.

Here is a nice musky Rian Robarge caught and released.  Thanks to Ryan for sharing a handful of their pictures which last week, which are posted on our Facebook page.

In addition to a good number of muskies under the 40″ mark and some nice limits of eater walleyes, some of the fish our guests caught & released include:

45″ Musky – Jack Carlson

42″ Musky – Rian Robarge

34″ Northern – Ryan Robarge

19″ Smallmouth Bass – Julie Beatty

19″ Smallmouth Bass – Dan Bargmann

So far this week has started off with some nice walleye action, some in the slot but many more for the skillet.  If Lake Vermilion is calling your name for one last trip north, now is the time to make your plans.  Although this week we only have one spot where we could squeeze in a 2 night stay on Wednesday and Thursday nights, the week of the 26th we have a full week long spot open.  Labor Day weekend we have 2 spots left, and another one that opens for 3 nights starting on Saturday, September 2nd.  Some of the best fishing of the season is just around the corner, and the chill in the morning air hints that fall will be upon us shortly.

Stop wishing….come fishing!
