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… Read More »

Lake Vermilion Early August fishing

Lake Vermilion early August fishing found the Muskies and Smallmouth Bass continuing to steal the show.  Just ask Zach Brennan, who spent the week boating 7 muskies, the largest a 53.5″ Personal Record for him.   He caught 3 that were over the 50″ mark.  Not a bad way to celebrate High School graduation before he heads off to college!   Check out the photo album on our resort  Facebook page – “Zach Brennan’s week on Lake Vermilion” to see… Read More »

Lake Vermilion late July fishing

Lake Vermilion late July fishing brought mixed results, largely due to a longer than usual stretch of windy days.  7 of 10 cabins had returning guests with lots of years of experience on the Big V, and it was not as easy as usual for them.  High temps late last week and early this week brought Big Bay surface water temps into the 80 degree range, only to find them drop by over 10 degrees as several days of high… Read More »

Lake Vermilion mid July fishing

Lake Vermilion mid July fishing for our guests has been up and down, just like the weather.  Plenty of people marking nice schools of fish on the graph, but feeding behavior has been pretty difficult to predict.  Lake Vermilion guide Cliff Wagenbach spent a day with Jon Wilson and some of his family, and they caught 17 walleyes and a lot of really nice jumbo perch.  While fish are being caught on the main lake structure, from one day to… Read More »

Lake Vermilion early July fishing

Lake Vermilion early July fishing garnered mixed results as for many groups the  July 4th holiday week was more about family time, boating and relaxation.  Lake Vermilion was hopping and the Tower parade, as always, received high praise.  We had easy success on smallmouth bass and those that targeted walleyes found them anywhere from 2 to 24 feet.  We caught walleyes really shallow on leeches and artificials, catching a good number that were big enough to release.  There were several… Read More »

Lake Vermilion fishing June 27, 2015

Lake Vermilion fishing June 27, 2015 report finds a week of several good size fish taking center stage.  While the season started out as one of many 10 – 12 inch walleyes pointing to strong future years, the past week was one of most catchers reporting 1/2 of their fish falling in the catch and release range.  Many guests such as Rick Rozycki shown above with a nice 27″ Lake Vermilion walleye (as one of his boat mates catches a… Read More »

Vermilion Spring 2015 fishing report

To start things off, the Hulsebus brothers began their trip with  a day on the water with Lake Vermilion guide Buck Lescarbeau, and it… Read More »
