some of the jumbos start showing up the latter part of august.....last year they showed up sooner tan ever before...the fact that they are gorging on the crawfish may make more and more bigger ones for some time to come....the good ones mostly come out of deeper water on the east end of the lake.....they are a nice bonus to some good walleye fishing!

As Gary said the jumbos start showing up on the East end at around that time.

Last year was a great year for jumbos, which were mixed in with the walleyes in around 12' to 16' of water.

Good Fishing!

Trust me there are some very nice perch in Vermilion. We have an annual 4-day trip the weekend after opener and a have a couple spots on the east side near Mocassin Pt. that always hold nice concentrations of perch. Almost all the perch we catch are between 10-12 inches. Many times the walleyes are mixed right in with the perch. They make a nice "bonus" fish.

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
