Lake Vermilion Musky and Pike

3 posts in this topic

My wife and I are heading up to Lake Vermilion the last week in August and are staying on the west end of the lake. We are looking for any information on where to start for some good pike and musky fishing. We are fairly experienced as we have been to Leech Lake 5 times, but this is are first to Lake Vermilion. We are coming up there from Michigan so our time there is very limited. I do have a hotspots map so any information someone is able to give us would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

With your expereince in northern MN lakes, finding good spots for Musky is pretty easy on Vermillion - it's getting them to bite thats the challenge. The west side has well marked reefs and great shoreline structure around most of the islands that provide for some great opportunities to hook up. Last year it was definitely a night bite lake. Although I've never tried it, there are HUGE schools of whitefish in that lake that should provide for some trolling opportunities too. You can catch a ton of smaller northerns in the weedy bays along Norwegian bay and other bays in the area closer to the Narrows with x-raps and other rapalas. The big ones are pretty deep that time of year, although I've caught a few trolling what I would consider the "classic" northern spots which are deeper areas near a mouth to a shallow bay. If you have a good map, it's pretty easy to identify those areas.

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!
    •   In the World According to Del, taxpayers should feel very guilty for allowing this to happen.              
    • We're not setting any records but managing to decoy a few. Struggling with a new gun that I'm too stubborn to set aside. Just happy to be out at all with what I've been through. 
    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
    • Last week I got my two Helix Mega in. I a lot of people ask me how I install them and how to avoid interference. Follow these tips and interference will be a thing of the past.  
    • You are a confused individual , you might not have jumped on the Apple dumpling gang bandwagon at first but it didnt take you long to sit side by side.And where do you get off saying I'm whining as you spell it,  go back and read the thread again. Snowflake huh? Dave you need to get otta silly town...oh and BTW after limit hit up our group they all left!!
    • You really don't need much insulation under the ground slab, I like to use pole barn ins.[bubble wrap] or 1 inch r board [heat rises],gyp crete works but it is patented and can only be installed by certified and licensed factory contractors. they mix it on sight, it cant be mixed by youre local ready mix provider,as the formula is property of gyp crete.
