St. Paul Sportsmens Show Happening NOW….

The St. Paul Sportsmens show is off and running, with 4 days of action.  Dave & Eric are there and always eager to catch up with guests who we have been fortunate to welcome to Everett Bay Lodge for some or all of our 15 seasons at the resort.   It is always great fun to spend time visiting with those who have “their cabin” and “their dates” on the book for the upcoming season, and exciting too to share… Read More »

Lake Vermilion September fishing

The past few weeks have flown by with the first week of the month finding the Minnesota B.A.S.S. Nation Tournament of Champions on the lake.  With 31 clubs sending 200 anglers the boat launch saw plenty of action as pre-fishing was going on.  The early part of the week was warmer and reports were favorable for good numbers and good size bass.  There were also reports of several muskies and walleyes caught.  A cold front came through though and seemed… Read More »

Lake Vermilion fishing – August 24, 2104

As the last week of August kicks off we wrap up a week that was short on great weather – kind of a gloomy week, finding us often wishing it would just let loose and rain, rather than threaten to rain for hours on end.  When the sun did poke through things warmed up quickly. Last Saturday night it looked like it might be a great week for muskies as 16 year old Justin Fuller boated his 46″ personal record… Read More »

Lake Vermilion fishing report – June 23, 2014

“Is it gonna rain?” That was the question of the week. As June 21st found us already 50% over our usual June rainfall total, with 2 of those 6 inches falling last week, the Local Weather Radar was the most popular webpage. Hard to make one blanket statement about the fishing because those who did the best were the ones that raced out each time weather conditions improved, having their best luck just prior to the approaching rain. For example,… Read More »

Lake Vermilion fish report May 18, 2014

The consensus is in: Once the ice finally left the lake, the fish were ready to eat. We appreciate the business of those who spent the past weekend at the resort, and the reports at check-out were much the same. As John Tasky reported, they had a good time, they ate fish and they each had a limit to take home. Just what we like to hear! Some of our guests told us about the following fish they caught: 27.5″… Read More »

Lake Vermilion Ice Out update…..

Everett Bay is down to just the stubborn remnants that the wind decided to deliver right to the resort shoreline. The first two pictures are from the east end of the bay near the narrows, with open water as far as the eye can see! The 3rd picture is the same location on Big Bay, that yesterday had all this dark ice off in the distance before the wind brought it toward the end of the peninsula. Black as can… Read More »

Lake Vermilion ice out continues

With winds from the southeast prevailing, the current from the ice free Everett Bay narrows had begun to work on the Big Bay ice, which has become increasingly black over the past few days. Thunderstorms on the way, so we’ll see what happens to that already fragile ice. This is the view from the end of the Everett Bay peninsula looking out toward Big Bay and Jack Rabbit island.

Lake Vermilion Ice out on Everett Bay closer by the minute!!!

Everett Bay ice proved stubborn over the weekend, but it has made great progress in the last day. While the area in front of the resort was about clear, a wind shift this afternoon brought the south shore ice our direction, and boy is it thin. Just like crushed ice as it comes toward shore. We scoped out some other areas, and the Everett Bay narrows are wide open with a nice flow of water heading into Big Bay. There… Read More »
