Lake Vermilion Fishing Report July 28, 2013

Muskie action picks up as the week progressed.

While the walleyes required more effort than past weeks, the large northern, muskies and smallmouth bass kept many guests busy this past week. 3 large northern over 40″ were caught, and the muskies are finally showing up on the rocky reefs with more regularity.

Conditions were tough the last couple days of last week with rain that just couldn’t seem to clear the area and high winds that made for less than easy boat control. Best you could say was it was “sure good sleeping weather.” Looking ahead at the forecast, sounds like things are going to get back on track with more normal temps, and no one will be complaining about that.
