1st time on Vermilion

3 posts in this topic

My wife and I will be staying at White Eagle Lodge on the Cook side Sept 25-28. We have never fished Vermilion before. We will be fishing for Walleye. I was wondering if anyone has a good location to start. I am also wondering if Lindy rigs with minnow are the way to go or trolling crank bait. Any help would be great.

Also thanks to the person who gave the info on the lake markers. That is very good information to have for someone who is not familiar with the lake.

Lindy Rigs and jigs with minnows will both work well.

Try crawlers on you rigs also.

Cranks will also work well.

I should be up there the 25th or 26th. Drop by the Prairie Schooner 5th wheel, or accost the old geezer you see in the blue/tan boat with the Evinrude ETec on the stern. I'll be happy to share some hints.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.
