      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Vermillion - haven't been there in years, where to fish/stay?

Recommended Posts

Midwesterner

I haven't been to Lake Vermillion in probably 20 years. I can't remember much about the lake but I am thinking of renting a place there after harvest this fall. Any suggestions on where to stay or where to fish? I think I want to be towards the Cook side of the lake. Thanks.

Check out the Lake Vermilion web site for resorts on both ends of the lake.

Fish the deeper holes with jig/minnow combo in the late fall.

Thanks Cliff. I remember in the old days vermillion had a lot of rustic type places to stay. Is it still that way or has the lake "grown up" as they say? I'd prefer something simple and not too fancy. Also, are there still decent places on the lake to eat? Is Stinson's still around?

Many of the Old resorts are still here, many with improvements , but still fairly "North Woodsy"!

Have not heard the name Stinson's before. ??

Thanks again Cliff. Stinson's, if I remember right, was near where the river leaves the lake. Has anyone stayed at White Eagle? That looks like it is in a good location and that there is a tavern nearby.

That would probably be what is now called The Vermilion Dam Lodge. Nice place and good food! grin.gif

White Eagle is also top notch from all reports!

Lots of entertainment close by also.

Thanks again. How do people fish the Cook side of the lake in fall? Jig and minnow? Lindy and minnow? What do the fish relate to that time of year?

And how is the tavern near White Eagle, I believe it is called the Landing?

The Landing is a great place, you'll like it. Nice people, great food.

I would be prepared for any presentation for the west end. Jig and minnow has been productive for me. Crawlers fished on a jig have also worked for me that time of year.

Thanks vermilionfox. Is the Landing upscale or relaxed?

I agree with william wallace (scared not to grin.gif) very relaxed and casual.

The Friday night all you can eat walleye is very good.

Thanks again. Are there any other restaurants nearby?

Also, any good places to fish near white eagle? Do the fish relate to structure or mud in vermillion?

Thanks, that is very helpful. As I look at the map, is the Partridge River a good place to fish? How about in the area between Taylors and Schmidt's Islands? Or on the other side of Taylor's Island? I'm not looking for anybody's hot spot, just some general ideas of how the fish pattern in fall.

You will find some excellent fishing from mid-september on around the areas which you mentioned. The past couple of years the lindy/crawler has continued to produce into the typical jig/minnow time. If you would like you can send me an e-mail and I would be happy to answer any questions that you still have.

"Stinsons" is now called Wolf Bay Lodge --- Zeke and Bev sold out. Main attraction is now the restaurant/bar, and the cabins aren't the best maintained last time I looked.

There are several other good resorts on the west side (Pehrsons, White Eagle, Spring Bay Resort, Head 'O Lakes Resort) which are all near a couple restaruants/bars (Landing, Harvest Moon). Spring Bay Resort has a built-in guide available.

      awesome feedback! thank you so much for the info! Ill get up ther next year, i dont want to keep any i just want to catch some nice eyes and northern.....hell, whatever! ive been in a sleeper 5 times on LOW and we only had one real good trip. upper red lake once in a sleeper caught 3 eyes in 3 days. i dont mind if i catch one or two fish, its all about the experience for me on the big water. but the girlfriend is a hard one to convince at times for a return trip if the fishing is slow. were headed to fairbault this weekend, i hope we get into something. thanks again guys! ill post a report on our trip. good luck on the ice!

      Well who else is going after long beards this spring? I was drawn for season B again no surprise. There were surplus tags left as there were last couple years.  Really like the new approach to not having to apply for the later seasons spreads the hunters out and gives guys like me the opportunity to get after them early   Been out doing some scouting and been seeing some big wintering flocks one I was glassing other day had over 60 birds in it! They have really been working over the picked corn lately.  Oh cant wait to hear the first gobble of the year

      Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff

      That's the plan. I'e gotten checked quite a few times this winter. It's good to see them out. Watched them get a couple guys last Thursday for too many lines, too many and illegal fish and using jawjackers... Sure is good seeing some of our money at work. Silly thing is the officer checked me 1st, then walked 50 yds to the other guys...  can' fix stupid I guess.

      Years back I took my brother-in-law behind Anselmo's (SP?), northwest of Jacobson Point in Head-o-Lakes Bay. I was looking for Muskie along the front of the cabbage. He had no gear so he rigged a small to mid-size in-line spinner bait with a white twister tail. He pulled it across the top of the cabbage beds. I was totally surprised when he caught several walleye. I wouldn't be so surprised if he was fishing in front or down in the weeds but he was basically catching on a surface lure in 3-5' of water in July.

      Nice. I made my own like that a few years ago but without the usb port. Can run a fan, light, charge phones etc. They are very handy.
