July trip

9 posts in this topic

Just booked a trip for the family for the second week in July at White Eagle resort. Anyone have any comments about this resort? Is it a good place for kids?

And most importantly...How's the fishing in July??

I've fished Rainy a few times...Is Vermillion along the same lines as far as fishing goes?

not sure how old your kids are but we stayed there last summer. They have a basketball court, some indoor table games (don't really remember what they were), one of those water trampolines, water bikes and kayaks. Water is kinda deep off the end of the docks if that is a concern. Prob more stuff than i remember too

I've stayed at White Eagle the second week of July for the past 4 years, and we will be up there again this year. It's a great place to stay for both those who fish and those who want to relax. Although of the 52 weeks in a year, I certaily feel that it may be the absolute worst week to go to Vermilion (from a fishing standpoint)but it works for my family. The great scenery more than makes up for the additional effort it takes to boat fish that time of year!!

We do most of our fishing on the East end of the lake and have had pretty good fishing all summer. It took a few trips with some of the guides and talking to some of my buddies on the lake to get a better understanding of the lake. I suggest that you hire a guide early in week and let them know what you want from the guiding trip, your experience on Rainy and I am sure you will not be disappointed . My experience with the guides and the fishing on the lake has always been excellent. Good luck and have fun.

Thanks for the replies guys! I'm looking forward to the trip. I've heard you can do well in July with a Shad rap in the bays.

My kids are 9 8 6 3.....Should be fun!

Are we close enough to where we can sneek off into a secluded bay...or are we on the wrong side of the lake?

There is plenty of places in Head of the lake bay to get out of the wind, or to get away from all the boat traffic. You can troll cranks out in the basin for walleyes or cast for Pike just around the corner from the resort. There is some pretty good Smallmouth action around Taylors island and the shoreline on the north side of the bay. Even if the Walleye action is a little slow that time of year, there are plenty of other opportunities to catch fish. You'll find plenty of panfish near by to keep the kids happy as well.

You won't regret coming to Vermilion and White Eagle is one of the finest resorts on the lake.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
