Lake Vermillion guide recommendations!!

Recommended Posts

minnesotashooter

I need a recommendation for a guide on Lake Vermillion. I am coming up on Sept 23 late and we would like to fish on the 24th and possibly the 25 in the morning. There will be a group of 6 guys and will have one boat but we will need another boat and a guide to show us where the fish are. If anybody has a good recommendation, let me know. We are planning on staying at the casino.

Gary,

Do you think that in general, the East end is better than the West end for walleye? From reading posts, it seems that East is better for walleye and musky, West is better for northern and largemouth, and both are similar for smallmouth (maybe East slightly better).

Don't want to generalize too much, but am I far off in that assessment? I get to Vermilion once a year in August and stay on the West end...I do very well on largemouth, smallmouth and northern, decent on walleye, but the musky have alluded me for the most part.

When I go up to Vermilion I always fish with Terry from ACE guide service. He lives real close to the Casino in Pike Bay and knows the lake as well as anyone.

For me he is the best on the lake!

Look up ACE Guide Service or give him a call

Good Luck!

Steve

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
