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

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
