Just booked a trip for the family for the second week in July at White Eagle resort. Anyone have any comments about this resort? Is it a good place for kids?

And most importantly...How's the fishing in July??

I've fished Rainy a few times...Is Vermillion along the same lines as far as fishing goes?

not sure how old your kids are but we stayed there last summer. They have a basketball court, some indoor table games (don't really remember what they were), one of those water trampolines, water bikes and kayaks. Water is kinda deep off the end of the docks if that is a concern. Prob more stuff than i remember too

I've stayed at White Eagle the second week of July for the past 4 years, and we will be up there again this year. It's a great place to stay for both those who fish and those who want to relax. Although of the 52 weeks in a year, I certaily feel that it may be the absolute worst week to go to Vermilion (from a fishing standpoint)but it works for my family. The great scenery more than makes up for the additional effort it takes to boat fish that time of year!!

We do most of our fishing on the East end of the lake and have had pretty good fishing all summer. It took a few trips with some of the guides and talking to some of my buddies on the lake to get a better understanding of the lake. I suggest that you hire a guide early in week and let them know what you want from the guiding trip, your experience on Rainy and I am sure you will not be disappointed . My experience with the guides and the fishing on the lake has always been excellent. Good luck and have fun.

that time of year...on a quiet moment one can find a good rock pile to slip bobber fish up that way....not to mention the great evening fishing off white eagles dock...lots of fish then but never fish on the 4 or 5...

Thanks for the replies guys! I'm looking forward to the trip. I've heard you can do well in July with a Shad rap in the bays.

My kids are 9 8 6 3.....Should be fun!

Are we close enough to where we can sneek off into a secluded bay...or are we on the wrong side of the lake?

There is plenty of places in Head of the lake bay to get out of the wind, or to get away from all the boat traffic. You can troll cranks out in the basin for walleyes or cast for Pike just around the corner from the resort. There is some pretty good Smallmouth action around Taylors island and the shoreline on the north side of the bay. Even if the Walleye action is a little slow that time of year, there are plenty of other opportunities to catch fish. You'll find plenty of panfish near by to keep the kids happy as well.

You won't regret coming to Vermilion and White Eagle is one of the finest resorts on the lake.

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!

      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.

      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
