Anyone hooking anything decent out there? Was out yesterday for a bit and caught about 15 dink crappies. I threw the camera down in a spot that was around 22 ft. and was spinning the cam pretty fast around and I saw white and a huge eyeball and thought oh **** that's a body. Turns out it was the white from the underside jaw of biggest muskie I have ever seen in that lake. Nose to nose with the cam lol, scared the c r a p right outta me when I was spinning the cam. I thought for sure the camera was gonna get hit but it just sat there for about 2 minutes then turned and swam away. It was easily 45+. Needless to say there were no other fish in sight lol.

great little lake for some big time action. I fish this lake all the time during open water. But have yet to try the winter bite.

On Saturday, I saw a truck go through the ice in the bay near the bull rushes. Pretty interesting. Not sure why some would drive into the weeds like that. Anyone else see it?

It wasnt out there on Sunday....well if it sank maybe it was lol. Why anyone would drive through weeds is a good question. Maybe one too many Coors or possibly just lost would be my guess.

The whole front right tire went in. They eventually got it out. It was during the day too. Around 2 in the afternoon.

No reports lately? I have been thinking about heading out there in the next day or two and see how things go. I drove by the other day and noticed a small number of people on the N end and the S bay looked pretty full, other than that not many other spots. Are there any? I've fished the lake plenty in the summer only to catch a couple small bass and that's it! Maybe throwing a double cowgirl or a buldawg has something to do with my lack of success? Lol

If any of you are interested in hooking up with me out there let me know because I usually have an open chair. I have a blue Fish Trap Guide and I'll be driving a maroon colored S-10, swing by and say hi even if you are going out to fish in your own house.

      I love the location of the Retreat Lodge, never stayed there though.

      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!

      Thanks guys!

      for crappies gulp alive 2.5 black shad is a great bait for me set on a 1/16oz jig.  tube jigs are great also!

      Hello, I am planning to spend a week with family at either Pelican or Vermillion in late July, and need to commit to just one. From what I know, both are great. I have been to Pelican in 15 years ago and liked it, but I've always been intrigued by Vermillion. I would appreciate thoughts and recommendations on both lakes, experiences at particular resorts. The family loves fishing for pike and I would like another crack at a Musky, but the main idea is to show the kids (9, 8, 6) the beauty of the area and build great memories. Thank you,   David

      Esox, couldn't find the online guide service in the last two issues of th Timberjay.  Could you please provide a link or a hint as to where you found it?

      I would say try Warroad casting spoons, spinners. Have heard of people catching walleyes there. Or there is a fishing pier in Baudette Bay of the Rainy. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55
