yea believe it or not i have a cabin on the lake right by Augers. Yellow cabin literally right across the road from the seasonals. As for tips the fishing has only been getting worse and worse from what is have seen. When i was younger my buddies and I would go out for two hours and catch ten northerns and bass no problem. I would say about two or three years ago the musky fishing was best for me. I used to see tons of fish everyday and i did not fish very hard or very long. As for walleyes if you find him you let me know! i know there are big fish in the lake but i can't find them. If you catch one or two walleyes a night you are going excellent.

The breakline out in front of Augers always seems to hold boats, I mean fish. Seems people do somewhat well there. I'll email you with some favorite spots of mine I like to fish when I get up there.

I hate to sound like a jerk but learn it for yourself that's the fun part isn't it? I get out there at least a few times a month and got my areas we get fish and not near other boats usually lately been seeing fish deep but cant get them to open their yaps

Crix...kinda defeats the purpose of coming to this website for a fishing report & tips then doesn't it...if you can't get a report whats the point..just sayin'!!

I used to fish it when I lived by Staples & always did good on the straighter side of the island...there is a nice break where it goes from 16' & drops down to 30'-35' feet & drops out towards the middle. We would also fish the horseshoe around the north side of island also. Be careful though there are some real shallow areas you can get hung up on...unless it has come up since we used to fished it.

Thanks for all the tips and info. I have made new fishing friends on here and at the resort, and hope to make more in the future. I will make sure to provide any feedback I can as I learn the lake.

The deep weed line kinda by the west launch is usually good don't just sit with the typical night time bobber guys on the point of it. the drop on that nw corner "pocket" is pretty good just have to watch out for boats flying in and out of the launch last weekend we almost got swamped by some a hole in a yar craft going about 20mph through the channel could have reached out and touched his boat as he passed we were idling through the channel like we always do... ahh some people nice part was the sheriff was on the lake so we gave them a call so they could give him a boat side meeting

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.

      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!

      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.

      Here's some throw back for yea. Lets your candy azzz E-cutter battery do this!  🤣

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆

      Still waiting for global warming to ditch my Lazer Mag, always in the truck for thick, virgin ice.    Don't know if it's possible, or advisable, but thought I would throw a 8" K drill bit on it to lighten it up. Should be an adapter for such a conversion. Careful what you wish for, probably rip my arm off with a shredding combo like that 😂

      Leech I still have my old jiffy gas auger mainly for sentimental reasons. I haven’t used it for 3 years now. The only time I start it up is in the garage just to hear that pop pop pop sound lol   I will never go back and have no regrets going electric. Huge weight saver and with an extension will go through any thickness of ice. Starts first pull every time lol    we were fishing 2 weeks ago Swiss cheesing a slough here in SD on 4” of ice when someone else tried to fire up their gas auger and my buddies and I looked at each other almost in disbelief that someone was still using a gas auger.   pros and cons for sure but I think electric has more pros than cons with advancements lately     
    • smurfy
      any ice thickness reports..........especially on smaller not heavily fished lakes???????   chances are i wont be up till after christmas anyway, but............
    • leech~~
      Let me know when you go again.  I'll being my crossbow and take out the Deer when you kick them up!  😁
