Late July fishing on Vermilion

Late July fishing on Vermilion had its ups and down, with the smallmouth bass providing the most consistent action.  Guests reported a variety of fish, with panfish, northern and some muskies being caught, but walleyes were a bit slower than we would have expected this late in the month.   Things seem to be improving though as the Ellingson family arrived Saturday for just a couple days of fishing and didn’t waste any time catching limits of nice ones.  You can see more of the pictures they shared on our Facebook page.

Both crawlers and leeches are working on the walleyes, but the leech bite seems to be more aggressive.  Levi Ault made his way onto our Everett Bay Lodge Wall of Fame with a nice smallmouth bass that passed the 20″ mark.

September spots are filling in quickly.  We also have a spot over this upcoming weekend for 1 or 2 guests, and a couple mid week next week for short stays.

Stop wishing….Come fishing!
