Can anyone recommend a resort on Minn. Lake Vermillion? Am considering a trip up there last week of may and first week of June this year. Have never been there before. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, Tom

Lake Vermilion could be described as the tale between two lakes..... from what I hear, the East part of the lake is very different than the West. The east has a reputation for having better numbers of walleyes while the west has a reputation for having largers walleyes. I've only fished the west and I've only fished it in the heat of the summer. Each time doing okay where we'd top out around a 6 pounder for the big fish but never huge numbers of fish.

I've only ever stayed at White Eagle Resort. Great cabins.... great owners.

Used to do dock work for Pearson's Lodge on the Cook end. Very nice lookin place. Also I have personally stayed at the Vermilion Dam Lodge. (snowmobiling) Another very nice place. 10-15 mile trek down a gravel road to get there tho. I worked almost exclusively on the Cook (west) end. A lot less traffic then the Tower (east) end.

If you stay on the west end PM me and we can meet on the lake. I'll be there for sure the last weekend in may and probably the first weekend in June.

This link may help you as well. The casino is also an option with nice boat launch and good food.

I've stayed at Ludlows before and everything was top notch. That place is amazing. I would love to get up there again.

Default I've fished that lake pretty hard.

I stayed at Pearsons lodge, and while the amenities are great I found the folks,, to be nice well just not to hospitable, The fishing isn't that great that I've experienced on the West end or east end. I recommend fishing near the dam, caught most of my fish between the two boulders before you get to the dam lodge in the back of the bay. Good luck and post the results.

I stayed at Forest lane on the east end...very nice. Owners are great. We had luck in Frazier bay and out in Big Bay. There is alot of water out there.. a guide for 1 day would really help...excellent smallies!

We've stayed at Pearson's probably 4-5 times. It's a nice clean place. I'd stay there again.

We fished it this past June and did well on walleye, smallies, northern, and panfish. Troll walleyes morning and evening, cast and jig bass and pike midday, and throw a limit of bluegills in the boat for the fryer.

4 years ago, most of the walleyes we caught were smaller, typically good eaters. We weren't there again until this year and the population really changed over that time, at least on the west side where we've always fished. We caught a ton of slot fish. For every eater we caught, we caught 3 slot fish. Numerous 20-26" fish. It sure was a nice change of pace from years and years of catching 13-16" on various lakes in both MN and WI.

The same spots that we fished years ago produced well for us again. We mostly rig with crawlers and leeches, but also did some slip bobber with leech in a few spots
