Lake Vermilion fishing
Lake Vermilion fishing was a little more inconsistent this past week —- just like the weather. While several cabins did okay, things were not as easy as others would have liked. In short, the shallow bite continues to be the most consistent, and it doesn’t matter if you slip bobber during the day or troll crankbaits shallow in the evening.
Some smallmouth bass guys caught limits of eater walleyes on several outings, and had to work a little harder for the smallies than the prior couple weeks. Jim Todd caught and released his PR smallie, at 21.25″. (See picture here: https://www.facebook.com/Everett.Bay.Lodge.Lake.Vermilion ) He and his boat mates caught plenty of bass, both large & smallmouth. They reported a good day while others seemed to struggle a bit. More than usual, the key was to move around until you found the structure holding fish. There were several largemouth bass and northerns caught, a couple 38″ on the pike.
Some of the fish our guests caught include:
Northerns: 38″ Robb Reynolds, 38″ Annette Jacobsen
Largemouth Bass: 19″ Robb Reynolds, 19″ Al Smith, 19″ Jim Todd
Smallmouth Bass: 21.25″ Jim Todd, 19.5″ Al Smith, 19″ Bob Kmoch, 19″ Trevor Sumption, 18″ Tim Magee X 2
Walleyes: 25″ Al Smith, 22″ Les Rolfson, 22″ Cayden Sumption, 21″ Tim Magee, 20.5″ Jodey Sumption
Hard to believe we are already past the half way point of June — we all know what that means. Get that late August or September trip on the book. Booked 2 of them today.
Stop wishing…..come fishing!
