Vermilion area hunting

Recommended Posts

fishingpreacher

I just found out an acquaintance has a cabin on Lake Vermilion, and that he likes bear and moose hunting. How is the bear and moose hunting in the Vermilion area?

Thanks for any info.

Not sure that any one hunts either right on Vermilion. I'd think you'd want to hear up past Ely for either. See tons of moose on my property that is 25 M up echo trail - saw one pile of scat on my property near Tower. Probably lots of bear up by and past Ely too. That is where Lynn Rogers does all his bear research and does all the radio collaring and such.

Friends at Aronsons told me a Moose was around their this open water season.

Went right by the fueling dock an out to Duffy.

A few years ago a moose went into the ice of Pike Bay.

Lived!

I used to see a lot of Moose in the spring & Fall up the Echo Trail.

Friend owns a place they call Called Sunrock, over looking Burntside.

I used to run up to big Lake weekly when I was younger and seen plenty of Moose.

My goal is to ride one soon or before it is all said and done in the Book of Musky Tom Wehler.

Have blasted all kinds of things straight to the Grill and Dinner table over the years.

But not to much around the lake area.

Have a summer client / friend who lives in Pike Bay who Bears hunts, but I think his hunting land is a bit more North East?

I will ask fer ya.

Be sure someone while chime in soon.

Bear down on the meat and eaze off the potato salad.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
