Lake Vermilion Fishing Report

The walleyes are moving out to some of the main lake structure in Big Bay and Frazier Bay and are biting in 22′ to 28′ of water. These edges near the rocks are holding the most fish as the walleyes are feeding on the molting crayfish. Both leeches and worms are working about the same. When the bite slows down, spinners are working well to cover more area in a short time.

The muskie fishing is still a little slow, but that is expected to pick up here now any time. Weeds are holding the most fish right now, but the size of the muskies in the weeds has been on the small side. A few more mayflies are showing up so we aren’t far away from the main hatch. The fishing will remain good through the may fly hatch so do not get discouraged.
