Summer is leaving Lake Vermilion in a hurry. Fall temperatures are here. I exspect this upcoming week to see more fall patterens set up for our walleye bite. This past week of walleye fishing found alot of fish in more shallow waters 12- 14' softer bottom flats in the morning. Late morning and afternoon we did better 18-26' sand areas,jig and minnows or rigging with minnows produced by far the most fish. Some fish were caught on crawlers so make sure your carrying both. As I said last report start looking in the deeper holes as the water cools. The people trolling lead core are doing well still, #5 -7: Flicker shads or Shad Raps.
Congratulations go out to some of the local Musky guides, Lake Vermilion hosted a large Musky tournament the past weekend and somes of our local guides that fished it did very well! Lake Vermilion is definitely a premier destination multi species lake.
Apologize for no smallmouth report.
Enjoy the changing season on Lake Vermilion,
Be safe and Best of luck
