Annual Vermilion Trip

2 posts in this topic

Greetings,

We are heading up next week to the VDL for our annual fall fishing trip. I am a little nervous about all the turnover talk and the temp being how its been the last few days. 10 day forecast says high 50's-low 60's. Should we be worried about the Walleye bite? I hope not but its always good to be prepared if possible.

It is only our second time fishing Vermilion as we use to head all the way to Canada for our trip. Last year we were up about the same time and had "ok" fishing. Nothing spectacular but at least we caught fish. We stay at VDL and stayed fairly close to that part of the lake. We fished over by Knotts Island and eventually towards the end of the trip ventured over thru the Oak Narrows and all the way to the eastside oppisite bay of Hinsdale Island. We did a lot of bottom bouncing w/minnows.

This year would like to try some new productive spots. If anyone has ideas we would love to hear about them. Also any hint of what has been working as far as bait & presentation would be appreciated as well.

Thanks again and wish me luck this next week!

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
