Warmer Weather for Lake Vermilion is Around the Corner-Fish Survey
The weather forecast looks much better later this week and weekend with lows staying above freezing and the highs getting into the sixties by Saturday. We received another storm last Sunday that continued to slow things down.
While the ice is thawing, please take a look at the 2012 DNR Lake Vermilion Survey provided below. Walleye numbers are well above average for the East end of Lake Vermilion. Looks like the 2010 walleye class is going to be great for the East end. This means good things for walleye fishing over at least the next few years.
Musky numbers also are very very good on the East end and the average size very large. Also of note are the good numbers for smallmouth bass and the relatively large size on the East end. It also appears perch numbers may be rebounding.
