Default Lake Vermillion

How's the Vermillion walleye fishery and how busy is the boat traffic in the summer? Considering buying a place up there. Appreciate any info.

It’s a beautiful lake, lots of fish but it can be difficult to find them. I suppose if you’re staying on the lake for an extended amount of time you’ll learn it well.

More West end traffic then East end. Walleyes are catchable but a challenge. With the virus it's busy like all the Northern Minnesota lakes. Vermilion ( 1 "L") is known as a Muskie lake if that makes any difference to you. It's not a lake for the poverty stricken, takes some bucks to get on it.

I spent about 18 days on it between May-July this year due to Canada closure. It got pounded all year long. I usually caught something but the walleye fishing can be a grind. It was really tough to catch them on the West end and if I were personally buying a place I would look hard at the Daisy Bay area which is towards the east but not on the huge water.

If not for all the boats though you would look around and think you are in Canada. Itís a beautiful spot with some fancy homes.

Walleye are tough at times, but the bass are really top notch and seems to get better over the years because they are the neglected species.

You may want to look closer to home.

Went out with a guide late august and did very well. About 20 16-22 inchers in 3 to 4 hours. Guide was quite surprised how well we did, he said it was his best day of the year. Iím glad the OP posted this question because I too would like a place there. Nice lake. Bring $$$, yikes!

He is welcome in Minnesota as long as he plans to contribute to the tax base versus sucking the coffers dry.

Who's doing that? (sucking coffers, that is.) Tax base, fine, artificially high taxes on year round residents, not so much.
