Lake Vermilion Fishing Report – September 18, 2013
As the regular season winds down, as usual, the walleyes get bigger and one needn’t travel far. Cloud cover and a.m. or evening windows have been the most productive, with our guests doing best on crawlers. While the Hodgins have caught and released a good number of fish in the slot range, they have also caught the makings of a nice fish fry too. The Manners crew spent their usual long weekend, and had a very productive beginning and end to the trip, with one day in the middle when things were a little tougher. All in all, they caught plenty of eaters and a handful in the slot.
Tom Grogan caught and released a 49″ and 42″ muskies and they also got a northern just under 36″, and guide Matt Snyder boated a 50.5″ muskie as well. While we have had several cabins do well close to home, the general consensus on the lake is that the walleye action is expected to hold up to its usual September pattern as most mid lake structure continues to hold fish. A rainy patch has settled over us, so it won’t be long before the leaves that are finding their color blanket the property.
While we are not far from the end of the season in most cabins, as in the past, we have limited lodging in October in a couple cabins, and year round options in cabin 1.
