Mid August Lake Vermilion fishing – Everett Bay Lodge

Mid August Lake Vermilion fishing – Everett Bay Lodge guests had mixed results.  In short, some of everything was caught, but it wasn’t the easiest week on the lake.  Guys fishing for Bass caught Muskies, guys fishing for Muskies caught Bass, and there were some walleyes caught – both eaters and larger ones.  The Henseler boys along with nearly 40 of their relatives, spent their family reunion up here, and they quickly realized a net would have been a good thing when their first muskie of the trip wanted their bass bait.  They were ready and armed with a loaner net for the second muskie that came along, and while they were successful getting the second one in the boat too, the net had battle scars.    As guys pre-fished the lake for the weekend’s bass tournament, many were very surprised by the plentiful muskie action their baits garnered.  In fact, Brian Korfmacher boated a 52″ muskie.  Congrats to Brian Post and Joe Shaw on their 3rd place finish in the Cabela’s N. A. Bass Circuit Lake Vermilion tournament.   The whole Bimson family got in on the smallie action as even the pre-k youngsters caught them.

A quick late week outing for Dave on Friday afternoon found him relieved that walleyes that had been plentiful on the screen for weeks had finally decided it was time to bite.  He brought home his 4 eaters and 2 nice jumbos for the perfect dinner.  Sounds like the main lake reefs are producing on crawlers.

Some of the fish our guests caught & released include:

Walleyes:  25″ Dan Brown, 22″ Marco Farfan

Smallies:  19″ Dan Brown

Muskies: 52″ Brian Korfmacher, 42″ Dan Brown, 40.5″ Nick Henseler, 40″ Nick Henseler, 39″ John Jurcy.

It is an unusual forecast with a 55 degree and rainy Wednesday coming our way, but the relief of 70 degrees vs. 85+ sure feels good.   Looking ahead to the remainder of the month, cabin 10 – the little one bedroom, offers an economic option for that last quick get-a-way to the lake.  We have a couple 2 bedrooms open as well.  We have 1 two bedroom cabin left and a larger option as well for Labor Day weekend.  Give us a call and come north!

    I just finished spending three weeks at Everett Bay Lodge. I was practicing for the Northern Divisional for B.A.S.S. I stayed in Cabin # 10, which is perfect for one or two people spending a week or a weekend at the resort. The cabin was clean and is situated under some great trees which kept it cool inside. Every day the deer would walk through the property with their fawns which was great. Dave and Diane were very accommodating the entire time. This is a rustic resort with great boat docks with electric hook ups, a fish cleaning house, and wifi at the lodge. Phone service on the property was good. The last week our entire seventeen member team stayed there with seven bass boats, but it seems that would be about the limit for boats, due to there being other customers at the resort with their own boats. Even though the boat situation was a little tight Dave and Diane made accommodations so we could practice, charge our boats and get in and out of the property efficiently. The bigger cabins are more modern and have great amenities. The lake and fishing is just simply awesome. Eagles were soaring and nesting everywhere I went on the lake. The smallmouth fishing was fantastic, I caught 10 Northern Pike, and 4 Muskies fishing for bass. I also caught numerous huge rock bass and 25″ and 24″ walleyes that were in the slot limit, and a dozen walleyes that would have been great eaters if I wanted to clean them. I caught all these fish with bass lures. Everett Bay Lodge is only 9 hours from Chicago, and I will definitely go back for some fun fishing. Dave and Diane, you have a five star resort, I will see you again!!!!

      Dan – Thank you for taking time to write your comment. We appreciate you staying with us as you made Lake Vermilion your home away from home for much of August. While the weather was less than great, you certainly saw the lake under nearly all conditions and your hard work paid off for you in the tournament with your 5th place finish. We are glad you enjoyed the multi-species fishing the lake has to offer and hope you and Kim can get back up this way in the future. Best of luck in the Nationals!

      Dave & Diane
