Are you looking for a big lake with a variety of fish?  Lake Vermilion is an excellent lake that has 40,000 acres of water, 365 islands and 1200 miles of shoreline.  If that wasn’t enough, it stretches 40 miles across the heart of Minnesota’s Arrowhead Region.  This lake is a great place for an outdoor getaway.  There are plenty of resorts along the lake to take care of your accommodations.

Fishing Tips

Because of the size of this lake, you should have no problem finding an area on the water all for yourself. Many trophy muskie and walleye are caught on Lake Vermilion every year.  Largemouth and Smallmouth bass are plentiful and they are underfished.  If you like northern pike, 10 to 15 pound fish have become common because of the slot limit.  Take a look at our Lake Vermilion Fishing Tips page for more fishing information.
