MuskiTom Wehler, Dave Swenson, Terry Sjoberg (Ace), Paul Pollack are some of the better local guides.

Would highly recomend Matt Snyder of Chad Cain's Musky guide service. Hands down, THE best musky angler on Vermilion!

Out of the thousands and thousands of muskie anglers on the lake he is the best? That's very debateable. There's a few dozen guides that can put you on muskies on Vermilion with Matt being just one of them.

Silverscale is being modest, blush.gif

Everybody knows he's the best muskie angler on Vermilion, grin.gif

He's the only one to catch and release a state record. \:o

Plus he's been fishing muskie longer than Cane or Able sick.gif

Hire Silverscale if you want a guide ;\)

Best muskie angler on Vermilion.

Don't know about that. Been doing it for over 40 years. Can usually put a fish or two in the boat but usually just go out to have fun being on the water.

Caught and released a potential state record. Sure was a big beautiful fish and I'm glad I released it as I do all my muskies,bass and trophy walleyes and northerns. Makes me feel good when I see them swim away. :-)

Do guide some but don't do it to make a living.

Out of State GPS map readers. Everyone has a gps in there boat, heck I have two. LOL

Catch a big one and let it go...

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
