slayer...you're right, there are some potential hawgs in vermont. In fact, a certain state record would have qualified...through the ice....had the anglers brought it in to be verified right away. The fish laid on the ice for hours and then it was a day or two before they weighed it in...just barely shy of nine pounds...after being frozen for two days!

It's not a real big lake. Follow the winding shoreline throwing spinners or jig/worms. Later in the day, move to the deeper weed edges with a carolina rig. The water is fairly clear. There's good numbers of bass in Vermont...and some will be near trophy size. So bring a camera!

Good luck...

Ive also heard that vermont has a stump field in it. Do you recommend fishing the stump fields too?

slayer,
The stump field is in the southwest corner of the lake. The access is along the southeast shore. The stumpfield is definately a place to start. Jig and pig or texas rigged worms would work well here. Lots of pike too, so be prepared.

good luck, let us know how you do.

I fished Vermont last week and had a blast. We caught bass, pike, crappie, blugill. This is a nice little out of the way lake that is a perfect getaway when the bigger lakes are too windy. We fished the stumps and logs that were on the edges. There is no shartage of places to fish, most of the shoreline had good cover for bass. It is very weedy...and watch out for those shallow rocks! tongue.gif

I had good luck throwing floating rapalas near the shallow weedbeds. All you had to do was twitch it a few times and they would come up and smack it. I also caught a few fish on white/chartruese spinnerbaits.
Most of the fish were anywhere from 1-3 pounds. Never really caught a real lunker, but the constant action really made for a great time.
You won't have trouble locating bass on Vermont, as there is lots of shoreline cover to explore.

Good Luck...

It's a great time to check out some of the smaller gems like vermont. Awesome panfishing in the shallows all over! Bass have been very aggressive of late too.

good luck hunting the lunkers!

Lake Vermont is a great Bass Lake with many bass above average size and possibly some with Mn record contentions. Vermont is a small crystal clear water lake, that grows beautiful deep cabbage weed lines. Besides the good deep water fishing for bass it also has great shallow structure including wood, cattails, pencilweeds, docks. It's got a variety for a bass man. I have a few big fish lakes that I take guide trips to where sometimes 10-20 between 5 to 6lbs and countless over 3lbs. Jig and pig would be a great big fish bet for vermont.

I fished lake vermont on saturday morning and caught lots of fish unfortunately most of them were small pike, i did manage to catch a few decent bass though on plastics, spinnerbaits, topwaters, and jig n pigs. I also had about a 4.5 pounder jump off on a jig and pig and about a 6 or 7 pound bass miss my chug bug.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.
