@Getanet Tough weekend for learning new water. If you head up that way again shoot me a pm. I have a lot of time on Cass and usually do pretty well. I will be up there the second week of June for a couple weeks.
I finally got out fishing last week on Thursday. I used a gulp alive minnow. one of the smaller ones, and it worked great. I put it on a pink ratso with a white body and the gulp on it and the crappies and bluegills would not leave it alone. Other baits were not as effective that afternoon.
I am helping out with the MN SATT (high school fishing) and Classic Bass Pro tournament trail to help fill 20 more boat marshal spots on Le Homme Dieu and the chain on June 14, 2019. As a boat marshal you will be placed in a boat with some of top bass pros in Minnesota and the country. The likes of Dean Capra, Seth Feider, John Figi, Matt Peters, and many more top pros fish these events. (not sure if they are fishing the Le Homme Dieu event or not, but it gives you an idea of the caliber of anglers fishing this trail and the opportunity you could have to be in their boat!) Your job would be to record fish on an app and make sure the anglers are following all the rules of the trail. There is much more information on the sign up page and if you have additional questions about what is require you can call my cell 612-819-8500. We opened this up to High School Anglers first, and now we are opening it up the general public. You must be 13 years or older and this is a great opportunity to learn something new by just being in the boat with some of these anglers. Here is a link to https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b084ba5ad2ba6fb6-classic2 sign up before the spots are filled up!
Hello David, we visited Vermilion for years until purchasing some land in the Frazer Bay / Smarts Bay area. We have stayed at a number of resorts, but really enjoyed Retreat Lodge due to the owners, reasonable prices and fantastic fishing within 2 miles of where it is located! Good luck with your decision!
Vermilion is a one of a kind lake!
