This lake is next to Big Vermilion Lake and the fishing here is very good. Many anglers prefer Little Vermilion to Big Vermilion because the action is usually better and there are plenty of trophy fish here as well. The smallmouth bass fishing is awesome here and you can also catch muskie and northern pike. The fishing pressure is minimal due to the lack of walleye. Most anglers come to this area to fish for walleye, so this lake is like a hidden treasure for those of you that like to target bass, pike and muskie.
