Lake Vermilion June fishing in the books
With enough rain on Saturday alone to deplete our dry socks, it took a little time for the weather to settle down, but when it did it gave way to a pretty solid week of walleye action. Several fish over 20″ were caught & released, and most guests reported eating fish and taking fish home. We were happy to see several returning guests and pleased that several “first time” Lake Vermilion visitors did well and made plans to return next year – “same cabin / same week.” That’s what we like to hear!
With the cooler than normal nights the water temp has yet to get warm enough for the muskie action to take off, but it didn’t hurt the walleye bite when Dave & Eric snuck out one afternoon. The water temp jumped 7 degrees during the time they were out there, and crawlers were the bait of choice. Tony Saltarski, Jr. caught the big walleye of the week – a 27.5″ – but had to wait his turn for the net as they were in the middle of tending to his Grandpa’s 25″er. While he released the walleye, Tony did take something home…. the swing he proposed to his bride on 4 years ago.
