The walleye bite continues to be good in the shallows as the mayfly hatch ends. Most guests have been trolling crankbaits with good success. The jig and minnow folk are also doing well, especially in the evening when the fish move into some of the nearby weed beds. Not sure what is happening on some of the deeper structure but likely this will be turning on soon. Bass have still been cooperative as well as a few medium sized musky. The young fellas that were here this week had several personal bests in terms of size and species. Here’s a few pictures from the past week……..
The past few days have been incredibly smoky with wind bringing down the smoke from forest fires further north. You know it’s smoky when you can’t see past Gull Rock!
How is this week’s fishing shaping up? Well, here’s Matt Haggart with two nice over the slot walleye from this morning!
A few bonus shots…
An addition to my fleet….a 73 Beetle with 25,000 miles on it. Presently sitting in my brother in laws garage in southern Ontario. Need to get it up here this summer. Wondering why I bought a Beetle? Had one when I was 18….it was a 74….paid $2995.00, brand new!

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.
