Lake Vermillion guide recommendations!!

12 posts in this topic

I need a recommendation for a guide on Lake Vermillion. I am coming up on Sept 23 late and we would like to fish on the 24th and possibly the 25 in the morning. There will be a group of 6 guys and will have one boat but we will need another boat and a guide to show us where the fish are. If anybody has a good recommendation, let me know. We are planning on staying at the casino.

Gary,

Do you think that in general, the East end is better than the West end for walleye? From reading posts, it seems that East is better for walleye and musky, West is better for northern and largemouth, and both are similar for smallmouth (maybe East slightly better).

Don't want to generalize too much, but am I far off in that assessment? I get to Vermilion once a year in August and stay on the West end...I do very well on largemouth, smallmouth and northern, decent on walleye, but the musky have alluded me for the most part.

When I go up to Vermilion I always fish with Terry from ACE guide service. He lives real close to the Casino in Pike Bay and knows the lake as well as anyone.

For me he is the best on the lake!

Look up ACE Guide Service or give him a call

Good Luck!

Steve

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Briggs is open as far as I could see.I will be out that way again tomorrow I'll get another glance and see if I spot some on a different side of the lake

      Been a long long long time since my pops took me there!

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
