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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
