This summer (2020), I greatly prefer the east end of the lake. Although the west end has some occasional "big fish" spots, the east end has been the steady producer with some big ones thrown in.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the always-evolving situation, no deposit is required and there is no cancellation fee this summer.
The main species I target on Lake Vermilion is walleye due to their abundance and great taste. However, it is quite common to catch perch, bass, northern pike and muskie while fishing for walleye. I can target these other species for a full day or as a change of pace if the walleye bite is slow.
The mainstay for Lake Vermilion is live bait rigging with a jig and minnow or lindy rig, but at times down rigging, lead core trolling or bobbers can be the quickest way to provide a shore lunch.
I can guarantee that I will do everything in my power for you to catch fish and have a great time, but I cannot guarantee how the fish are feeling each day! But after decades of fishing on this lake, I know a million techniques and spots we will try.
