Early Spring Fishing

Exceptional Early Spring Fishing

Early Spring Fishing

With the beginning of May on the horizon, it isn’t too early to begin thinking about early spring fishing.

This year the walleye season opens on May 21 which, considering the pace of ice-out on Eagle Lake, is probably a good thing.


Cold Water And Early Spring Fishing

One of the nice things about a late ice out is cold water…….and cold water equals great shallow water lake trout fishing!  In past years a late spring has also produced some big walleye and pike for those fishing out of Vermilion Bay Lodge in May.

If you haven’t thought of fishing this time of the season, then you really need to reconsider!  Early spring fishing can be exceptional!
