I am heading to Lake Vermilion Sept 8th for a week. Never been there and need advise for Musky, Walleye and Bass.
What type and color lures, other types of bait and best areas to fish.

As far as walleye, sharp, deep drops produce for a deep jig bite. Other areas that are productive are bays and deeper weedlines. Methods that work well here are rigs with crawlers and cranks as well. There is also a deep crank bite with leadcore out in the mud, but I don't know if you want to get that fancy. The water is tannic colored (tea-stained), so brighter colors such as yellow, chartreuse, orange, etc. work well, but other colors do work well at times. Perch, shiner, and firetiger work well for the shallower weed bite, and for the deeper core bite, you may want to have a rattle in the lure to help the fish a zero in on the lure. As with anything, try different pattern/colors until you find the one that works. Good luck on your trip, usually that's the best weather and fishing period of the whole season up here! Hope this gave you some direction to start with.

Hey there saint7380, i fished up there about 6 years ago and we had good fishing for smallies in a bay that was east of mckinley campground i was killing them with a #3 mepps orange,white and green blade and natural tail throughing it on the rocks on the shoreline moving along the shoreline far enough to reach them. my friend was trying everything but a buck tail and finally caved into putting one on and then finally was having more sucess. hope this helps you and good luck. ice cracking cool smiley

I have had good luck with rostertails for bass ( cop blades in orange or black) stick baits for eyes and bass, tiger thunderstick and gold x raps and of corse the wacky worm. Try the midlake humps 12-24 with lindys and or bobber fishing. Not sure what end of the lake you will be fishing.
I have only fished the east end on big bay. There is a flat near Moose island that will be holding fish this time of the year. Cherry island birch and seven sisters are all good areas to hit. Dont be afraid to fish shallow. nice mid day bite 11:30 to 2:30. Find a shallow point of an island with deep water close by and try a bobber and leech combo. NOTE... if you do not know the big V well try not to travel at night or if you do be careful out there.

Good luck!!

for musky find any and all hazard markers and throw bucktails and showgirls at fast pace. make sure to do your figure eights as well. Usually 1st couple of hours in morning and last 2 hours of light the fish up there turn on. If you are in the pike bay area, try hitting the islands around the mouth of it and adjacent to the main lake area outside of it. stunz bay is good with weeds for musky as well. some good rock points heading into stuntz for walleye as well. Smallmouth usually at that time of year are on rocks. Hope this helps

by the way, if on the darker stained area, try brighter lures like red or orange color combinations. when in the clearer part white, blue, yellow and natural colors well do well.
