Lake Vermilion Fishing Report

The fish all across Lake Vermilion are in their summer patterns and are very hungry with the warm water and large amounts of available forage.

Walleye fishing has been nothing short of fantastic with fish holding along almost every shoreline break and piece of mid lake structure across the entire lake. The depths they are located in changes through out the day with the bright sunshine, but look in the 16′ to 26′ depths for your greatest success. Bottom bouncers and spinners tipped with a leech has been working well to cover a lot of ground in a short period of time while you target the most aggressive and biggest fish. Using your electronics and side imaging to pin point what depth the biggest schools are located and then keeping your bait in that zone is key to a successful day on the water.

The muskie fishing over the past week has been the best of the year with fish being caught trolling the basins as well as casting the rocks. Large bull dawgs and other soft plastics have been working well.

There are still may fly hatches occurring daily, but the hatch is not as pronounced as it is in a normal year.

With this great weather and great fishing be sure to get out and enjoy the summer!
