Fishing on Lake Vermilion

Minnesota Fishing Resort on Lake Vermilion. Over 40,00 acres, 1,200 miles of shoreline and 365 islands make Lake Vermilion a fisherman’s paradise. Long renowned for walleye, northern, bass, bluegill, and crappie, and offering trophy potential in each species, Lake Vermilion is also recognized as Minnesota’s new and untapped muskie fishing resource.


Andrew and his family have been summer guests at Pehrson Lodge for a number of years. As you can see in the video below Andrew is one very talented fishing enthusist. The video also proves it's more fun to be fishing on the dock with your cousins than just about anything else one could imagine.


Vermilion’s countless bays and inlets and 365 islands provide solitude and protection from wind and weather in virtually and condition. In addition, the enormous amount of fish holding structure disperses fish and fishermen throughout Vermilion. Lake Vermilion map.
