Lake Vermilion bait options

3 posts in this topic

Annual trip coming up soon and I'm looking for some bait options. We will be up Friday 9/28 early AM and are staying at End of the Trail Lodge. Two years ago the area shops did not have much of a selection. Last year we ended up driving to Gander Mountain in Duluth. The bait was great but it was out of the way. (we're coming from Rochester) I'm looking for 30 dozen shiners and 30 dozen fat heads that are decent size. Would like to patronize the local shops but need the commitment on quantity and size. Does anybody have a line on a local wholesaler or bait shop they would recommend? Any input would be appreciated.

Let me know what size shiners you are looking for, as well as the fathead/chubs. I'll see what I can do for you, email me from my web-site or give me a call and I'll let you know. Shouldn't be problem, the only thing I'll say is that the size varies and I can't control that.

Try Lake Vermilion Trading Comapany in Cook. Mark has a great Sporting Goods store there with both bait, great homemade lunch specials to boot!!!

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
