07/31/19 Fishing Report for Lake Vermilion: (See Fishing Report Archive at bottom
of page)
Bass fishing is good - holding at 8 to 12 foot depths. Plastic worms and grubs, deep
diving crankbaits. Bream and sunfish is good early late on popping bugs. Muskie is
good using large topwater lures and shallow running cranbait and jerkbaits around
heavy cover. Crappie fishing isn't good. Walleye fishing is slow, holding in deeper
water.
