I am looking for some recommendations for walleye guides on Vermillion. I would like to take my dad out with a guide at the end of June. Our place is on Head of Lakes Bay so preferrably one from the west side. But I know you have to go where the fish are biting so I'm open to East or West.

Thanks~

The end of June should still have a decent walleye bite on the West end. Check the Lake Vermilion web site for a list of the West and East end guides.

I highly reccomend Doug Knore, Joe Panichi, or Buck Lescarbeau.

Casey, one of the moderators on this forum, also has started guiding on the West end. cool

If you decide to fish the East end Casey,Paul, and I all guide on this end.

Terry 'Ace' Sjoberg of Ace guide service would be one of my top choices. Good guy and many many years of expierience on Lake Vermillion.

Cliff would be right up there too, and if he mentions Doug, Joe, Buck I'd reckon they must know whats up.

All of the above would get you into fish. In addition Phil Bakken for the east end and Bill Rosner for the west end are excellent guides. You can't hardly go wrong with any of them.

Doug Knore is good on the West End. We had him guide for a us a few years ago and liked him so much we are having him guide for us again at the end of the month.

Didn't he get a full time job somewhere as a caretaker or something?

Not only a great guide but a top notch guy that really cares for the resource, these are the types people should really support!

Joe Panichi, Doug Knoer, or Billy Rosner (check out the April Walleye In-Sider). These guys are excellent guides, and you won't find anyone you would rather spend the day in a boat with.

I'll second Doug's recommendations. I've fished with all of them, and they are all top notch! Have a great time!

If you would ask me an most people do.... I would say the one an only Zim Flimmer is the best on the west...makes these other guys look like... well dead bait.

He is not easy to find so the hunt for him is just as fun a fishen with him.

Hulk of a man with a shock o red hair like the fires of hell itself an a blazing personality to match.

Oh yeah Zim Flimmer is the man.

I thought it was a guy named Zeep Zickau? Doesnt he have a dock where theres never any fish around it?Thats why he started guiding had to get away from it in order to catch fish!

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"

      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.

      Let’s start this by congratulating Brianf and son for winning their second City Autoglass Walleye Classic last weekend. These guys know how to fish.  We just got to the lake for the season. Chores are almost done and I’m ready to fish.  red(new dog is more yellow)labguy

      I tried starting a 2024 Lake Vermilion Fishing Report topic but it doesn't show up on this board.   Maybe somebody else knows how to do it?

      then use the BB gun after catching them!!!    and then enjoy rabbit dinner for revenge!!!

      Yep crazy. 🤪 I played goalie in HS and my two grandsons play hockey now.  
    • gimruis
      Hockey gear in general is very expensive.  I was in a Pure Hockey last month to get my skates sharpened and while they were doing it I looked around at gear.  A new pair of CCM/Bauer customized skates can easily top 1000 bucks.  Then you need everything else.  It would be several thousand before you had everything.  And then your kid grows like a weed so you need to buy bigger gear.   Then there's goalie gear.  That's enough to buy a small boat.   Nothing cheap about that sport by any means.

      That's a good idea Mike.  But, my sweet wife who's never killed anything in her life, wants them all dead and their skulls on poles! 👹  🤣
