Greetings from lake Vermilion while we're all sheltering during this Covid-19 pandemic. I'm hoping everyone is staying well and safe.
Having reviewed the Tower DNR fisheries report for the upcoming season, looks like our lake is still maintaining a great multi species fisheries.
The walleye population was up slightly from last year, the strongest size appears to be in the 12 to 14 inch class. With a good population of fish in the 19" plus category. The upcoming younger class of 8 to 10" will provide plenty of opportunities by the end of summer into the future.
The smallmouth bass population continues do well. With the east side showing a stronger population of bigger fish.
The Musky fishery is still very strong. A well representation of fish in the 39 to 51" range. But 10 % of the fish were over 50".
We all look forward to getting through this situation. We're all together and when this is over lets get out and start getting our lives back to normal, support the small businesses that have suffered greatly during this.
Look forward to to seeing you on Vermilion.
