ok...here goes! I need some help. Trying to decide on an August Vermilion family trip (me, wife, 2 16 yo twin girls). Narrowed down to VDL, Spring Bay, or Everett Bay Lodge. Gonna do some walleye fishing, maybe try to find some perch. Gonna do some sight seeing, bears, wolves, mine. Heard a lot of good about all 3 places.Llooking for help on fishing, location of each for sight seeing, anything special that would help. Any help at all would be very appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Everett Bay is nice and in a great location. Right near the dump for bear watching.

Freddie,

I have always enjoyed fishing the east side better than the west. Just have had better action there. East side puts you closer to the wolves (ely) and mines (hibbing, virginia, chisholm). West side puts you closer to the bear refuge. I haven't stayed at any of the resorts you mentioned, so I can't help you there. I have been to see the wolves and bears with my kids, and they really enjoyed it. Haven't been to the mines tho.

Tim there is also a new bear center in ely. Haven't been there but I hear it is similar to the wolf center except for bears.

nd the Soudan underground mine tour is pretty cool.

Everett's Bay will put you closest to everything you're looking for, freddie.

Good fishing nearby, too.

Don't forget to do the Soudan underground mine tour too!

I am partial to the East end too.

Everett Bay lodge is also right across the bay from Fortune Bay Casino. Nice resort and great people who own it! Dave and Diane are both fishermen so they will be able to direct you to fish.

West end is where Ive been my whole life...more secluded and not as populated...besides all the little coves make it more scenic to me.......Also stayed at VDL as I was growing up ...I vote west end laugh.gif

Hey Doug,

Would appreciate the opportunity to host you and your family. Vermilion is a great lake, and you can't go wrong on either end of the lake. Give us a call if we can help.

Dave B... when you say near the dump for bear watching.. is this like a garbage dump (I have visions of John Candy in The Great Outdoors) smile.gif or is there an actual place to go see the bear??

Thanks for all the info, as usually is found on this site, but....unfortunately the trip had to be cancelled. I will be up next year, probably right after i file divorce papers (kinda tongue in cheek).

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Hey Kelly can I fish of your dock opener

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
