Chairs, tables, and chaise lounges are stacked together and covered with tarps, as are the Hydrobikes and other water toys.

Early Season Fishing Tips


Fishing opener in Minnesota is a GO, and you’re probably as ready to get out of the house and onto the water as we are! Our resident fisherman, and owner-operator of our resort tackle shop has some advice for early season fishing on Lake Vermilion. “This time of year can be some of the best fishing on the lake! The three fish I would target right away to start the season are walleye, crappie, and northern pike. For walleye, focus on fishing deeper water, 25-40 feet, until the water warms up.
