Lake Vermilion September fishing has been up and down, with a handful of windy and cooler than average rainy days making things tough.  The cold front conditions of the past week definitely slowed things down, but this week’s forecast of higher than average temps, high 70’s and even over 80, will likely turn up the muskie action.

Ron & Teri Vigue caught their limits on the tried and true 1/2 crawler.  In general, most have been caught in 12 – 16 fow, and the crank bait bite has finally taken off.  While we picked up a few walleyes, our latest outing testing out the shoreline crank bait bite found many decent smallies to be the more aggressive bite.   A handful of muskies have been caught, both casting and trolling.

Some of the fish our guests caught & released included a 45.5″ muskie by Ashley Toole, a 22″ walleye by Rob Autry, a 40″ muskie by Brian Presnail, a 20″ walleye by Angie Merkel, and three nice walleyes caught by Corby Urban – 25″, 22″ and 21″.  Several guests also reported some really nice Jumbo Perch, a couple 14″ beauties.

Looking ahead to the remainder of the season, we have an assortment of stays available between now and the end of the month, and what can typically be some of the best fishing of the season is yet to come.  The phone has been ringing for 2018 stays, so if you have a particular time frame and cabin in mind, better sooner than later to get that trip on the book!

Stop wishing….Come fishing!
