Lake Vermilion Early June fishing

Lake Vermilion early June fishing is producing an abundance of walleyes and smallmouth bass.  While the lake has continued to rise with the steady doses of rain we have gotten, those who have ventured out in the sometimes less than comfortable conditions have been rewarded.   With plenty of fish to eat throughout the week and a limit of walleyes for each of their crew to take home, Virgil’s gang had a good week of fishing during their annual Lake… Read More »

Lake Vermilion spring fishing 2015

Even though Friday’s weather wasn’t the kindest, it didn’t take the Raleighs long to get the walleye action going when they visited for a day and a half of Lake Vermilion walleye fishing.  With limits of eaters, several bigger ones and a good number of fish in the 12 to 14 inch range they were kept busy.  The same walleye action continued when Virgil and his crew arrived Saturday.  They too found the walleyes hungry and opted to bump Burgers… Read More »

Lake Vermilion fishing report for May 2015

Lake Vermilion fishing opener

  Lake Vermilion fishing opener report – Everett Bay Lodge guests reported mixed results this past weekend, with many groups reporting catching their limits.  Based on the activity in the fish cleaning shack, those pesky 10 & 11 inchers of last May have grown into some very nice eaters.  While cleaning cabins for the next crew of arrivals, the aroma made it obvious there were a good number of fish frys over the weekend. On Saturday an hour long outing… Read More »

Lake Vermilion Ice out 2015 as of April 18th

Lake Vermilion Ice out 2015 goes in the books as April 18th.  Good thing the winds were strong those last couple days as it finished the ice off before a cold snap came our direction. Fortunately the 10 day forecast gets much better after Thursday, and it looks like smooth sailing from there on out.  Delighted to be taking calls from people who are booking cabins vs. just inquiring as to when we think the ice will be off like… Read More »

Lake Vermilion Ice out 2015

Lake Vermilion ice out 2015 starts with the steady rush of water at the Pike Bay dam. In just a matter of a few days, a small trickle has evolved into this powerful full force rush, with the ice on the high side of the dam looking like it may be short lived. Progress being made as the water pushes its way under HWY 77 and starts to take its toll on the ice on the east side of the… Read More »
