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!!!

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
