…and before I tell you what I discovered I need to send a message out to those who might be considering a trip this season to VBL. It is already shaping up to be a busy year and your options are dwindling….here’s what I still have available:
This is it folks, barring any unforseen cancellations, so if one of those slots is of interest then give me a call!
So back to the holes I drilled….
At the perch hole (location confidential) there was over two feet of solid ice, which isn’t an earthshattering discovery but perhaps an important detail seeing we are in the grips of an ice out predicting contest. Many entries have been submitted already without knowledge of that detail. Any regrets out there on your choice? On a sour note the perch were nowhere to be found. A nice brisk breeze picked up which persuaded us to move onto other endeavors.
Over the years you may have noticed a barrel sauna hidden away behind the lodge. Susanne and I use this extensively over the winter but it’s a bit far from the lake during the summer. For 2023 we will be expanding the deck down by the lake to include a wood fired sauna along with a swimming dock to get you into the lake from the sauna. Thinking that after a long day of musky fishing in September this might be just the ticket! If it sounds interesting then throw some “sauna wear” into your suitcase!
PS. The top photo of a frosty cabin 7 was from back in January of this year.
Ice out – June 15 😆
Normally I would hide the date you picked to preserve contest integrity, but in this case it’s probably not necessary!

If you like GREAT fishing, hospitality and affordability, Vermilion Bay Lodge is highly recommended. I have been making the trip to Vermilion Bay Lodge for the past 10 years and have never once been disappointed. If you like great walleye, northern, musky and trout fishing, this place should not be overlooked. The fishing has been excellent… no matter what time we went. Gordy and Susanne are wonderful hosts that will make you feel right at home. Check it out – I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
