Lake Vermilion 2011
Our temporary home on Lake Vermilion, a comfortable camp on the eastern tip of Pine Island.
Some of my most reliable late-summer north country muskie lures include, from the top, Double
Cowgirls, Top Walkers, smaller single-bladed inline bucktail spinners, Poe’s Awakers,
Manta jerkbaits, and Hog Wobblers after the sun sets.
My largest muskie to-date, a fifty incher caught on a topwater lure from the French River in Ontario.
My good friend Bill Hummel with a chunky Lake Vermilion smallmouth bass.
This smallmouth is a good representative example of the size bass we caught.
Let them go so they will grow!
Ready-to-fish versions of the weedless inline spinners we used on Lake Vermilion are available
in the Mepp’s Black Fury Combo Killers and Terminator Weedless In-Line Spinners.
So many fish, so little time.
