Lake Vermilion Fishing Report – East End

The consistent Northwest wind has concentrated the walleyes along the wind blown shore lines.  This makes the walleyes easier to target along the rock edges in about 20′ of water.  Worms have been producing more than leeches over the past week and a half crawler seems to be working the best.

The water temperatures are still not in the 70s yet and have been dropping this past week.  This has lead to the bite not picking up until around 10:00 am so it is nice to not have to rush out in the mornings.

The mayfly hatch is pretty much at its peak, but the bug slicks are not as visible in the lake as they are quickly washed up along shore with the persistent winds.

Bass are still along the shore lines, with some of the bigger fish not being quite as tight to shore.
