Spent the week at Muskego Point Resort 7/18 -7/25. Everything at the resort was great as always. The fishing was a little tougher than usual with cold fronts and some rain coming through the first part of the week. Surface temps were 81degrees when we arrived and 70.5 this morning when we left. However I did still manage to get some decent sm. mouth, lg. mouth and pike. The wife lost a nice walleye boat side bobber fishing with a leach. Slip bobber and leach was definitely the best way to put numbers of fish in the boat. Boated 2 muskies on Friday. Hope to get back up in September when the musky and walleye fishing gets really good.

Looking to come up to Lake Vermillion in September this year.  We have never fished the lake or northern MN in general.  During that part of the year, does it matter where we stay on the lake - west side versus east side? Mainly going for walleye and musky.  Any other suggestions?

From Muskego Point to Fraser Bay is about 7 miles. If you’re looking to get all the way down into the big basin near Tower it’s about 20 miles. I’ve never ran from the west end to the east end but you’re probably gonna have to figure 30 to 45 minutes depending on where you go and if the wind is blowing and the chop is up it will be longer.

If I stay at the west end of the lake. How long is the boat ride to the East end? I can travel up to 30mph in my boat. Thanks

I spent the last four days on the west end of Lake Vermilion and got into some pretty good fishing considering the water temperatures were still kinda cold. I got several northerns some smallmouth bass and largemouth bass and did well on crappies bluegills and small perch. I stayed at Muskego point resort and as usual it was immaculately clean and is ready for business. Joe and Jenny at Muskego Point are working hard to meet all of the guidelines set by the health department to ensure all their guests have a safe and enjoyable stay. If you’re looking for a place to go for a great week of fishing give them a call. If you’re considering canceling a trip up north don’t do it these resort owners need our support. If we don’t continue to support our favorite resorts they may not be there the next time we want to go. Book a trip up to Lake Vermilion in the next couple of weeks get yourself a bunch of minnows and head to Black’s Bay and get in on the great crappie fishing going on right now. FYI I did better on crappie pulling small plastics under a bobber really slow.

Just spent a week fishing out of Life of Riley Resort on Norwegian Bay. All the species were quite active in spite of rain and overcast every day. Northern Pike were active in the 20" to 30" range, we were catching 4 to 5 each day. The largemouth bass were in shallow water weeds in Black Bay hitting Scum Frogs and wacky worms, largest caught was just under 5 lbs and we had numbers in the 3 lb to 4 lb size. Walleyes were available in the transition zones in 18' to 25' and slow trolling perch colored baits on leadcore line, all the walleyes were stuffed with young of the year perch making the bite slow. Surprised to see so many green weeds still available this late in the year.

Headed to Vermillion for the first time in two weeks to fish muskies. Going to be staying near Fortune Bay on the east end. Anyone have any tips on locations, baits, colors, or anything that would be helpful? Can't wait to spend a few days on this lake, hope the weather cooperates. If not we will be ready but it sure is a big lake to have to fight anything if we do.
