I've been hearing some good reports from rebel hump directly to the northwest of us about 3 1/2 miles out.

I was at Winnie all week. Tried the north shore bite early with little success. Fished the humps Wed- Fri. did very well releasing over 30-walleyes over 17 inches in 3 days. Caught some eating sized fish also. Seemed as though the fish were not on the tops but sides of the humps. Used Lindy/leech exclusively red hook seemed to help. We have never caught so many big fish...it was a blast!

Sounds like you had a good trip. I'm heading up the weekend before the 4th and hope to have that kind of success. I actually caught a few out on the humps the first weekend in June but there were plenty of fish shallow still so I didn't spend much time out there. Did you find any over 26"? Our group has landed some 25" and 26" fish this year but it's rare to see them much bigger than that. One of these times we may actually be on the big lake at the same time. Let me know the next time you are going to be up.

      It is a bad idea.  It can spread disease and invasive species.   Don't do it.     Besides, the minnows swim away and within a short time are dispersed so the fish wouldn't see them as a big attraction.

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.
