Weather this week was text book August temperatures being in the low 70’s or high 60’s for daytime highs, and lows of 45 to the low 50’s at night. We had a few windy days and a cold front however fishing seemed to be stimulated by these changing conditions as you wills see and read below.

Long time guests Joe and Marilyn Foos from Apharetta, GA were glad to be back searching out those big trophy Smallmouth Bass. Day of arrival they did well catching some very large Smallmouth Bass. Marilynn said it was Joe that had the hot hand at the beginning of the day and she had some catching up to do. 1st day was very good with Joe starting out very strong catching most of the fish but by mid-day Marilynn made a big comeback catching her fair share of the larger Smallmouth Bass. Second day started out in the early morning before breakfast catching some nice Smallmouth on the surface, and for the balance of the day Marilynn had a strong day inching her was closer to catching up with Joe. They love the Smallmouth Bass fishing concentrating their efforts targeting them with mostly surface techniques catching some of the largest Bass this way.

3rd day they had waves of activity amounting to another good day. 4th day started with heavy rains but then by noon things shaped up weather wise and they had a good day catching Smallmouth Bass and a few of those Pike that tend to steal their good Smallmouth Bass lures. Day 5 was very windy making them fish places they normally would not, but still caught a dozen Smallmouth Bass and two Northern Pike. While using surface lures a Smallmouth Bass first hit Joe’s lure, then went after Marilynn’s and then back after Joe’s, with Joe finally catching the Bass. 6th Day they did well catching 9 nice Smallmouth Bass and 3 Pike working surface lures on a very windy day. Joe said they probably could have caught more fish using another technique but they love using top-water lures.

7th day was surprisingly good thinking that a cold front would have slowed down the Smallmouth Bass bite but it did not. They had a lot of action on surface lures even though it was windy again and had very cool temperatures. 8th and final day was slow until 10AM and then all heck broke loose and catching Smallmouth Bass on Surface lures and it never stopped until about 3PM. What a great finish to a wonderful fishing vacation for Marilynn and Joe.

Al Fishhaber from Northfield, OH and Rob Delamatre from Sandusky, OH have been fishing with us at Fireside Lodge for over 25-years. These two had a great day catching Northern Pike, only a few fish in each spot, but by having knowledge of fishing Little Vermilion Lake for many years and moving a lot enabled them to catch many fish.

2nd day was very good fishing but Rob had a special pre storm happening. This was a text book catch as thunder was being heard far away in the background the fishing was really active and then Rob tied into a HUGE FAT 42-inch Muskie landing it after a spectacular fight. After all the activity of a big catch calmed down they realized that the approaching storm was getting closer and called it a day getting back in time to watch the T-Storms undercover at the Lodge.

3rd day had them catching many average to medium size Northern Pike. 4th day was very windy catching a mix of Smallmouth Bass and bigger Northern Pike. 5th day they both caught huge Trophy Smallmouth Bass, Al with a 19-inch and Rob’s hit the 21-inch mark. Not bad for a couple of Muskie and Northern Pike fishers. 6th and final day Rob and AL caught many Northern Pike in the 30-inch plus range before coming in to pack at about 2:30pm. Rob said when fishing out on Little Vermilion Lake and embracing Mother Nature it is the only place he forgets about all the stressful things that tend to occur during his daily life. Both left with smiles already planning their 26th year fishing at Fireside Lodge in 2020.

David Sowatsky from Dallas, TX returned for his 3rd time with his son Kyle for his second visit. First day they got a great start catching Many Northern Pike and 29 nice size Smallmouth Bass. By the end of their second day, which was fabulous fishing, Kyle said they had caught 41 Smallmouth Bass, 32 Northern Pike, and three Muskie. The catch of the day was when David tied into a BIG Muskie and after a great fight landed a 40 inch very heavy Muskie.

3rd day they attempted a portage lake but got blown off the lake because of high winds. While fishing the bigger lake they caught Northern Pike and Smallmouth Bass each catching the largest Smallmouth of their lives. Kyle caught a huge 19-inch Master Anglers Award Trophy Smallmouth Bass and David landed a Massive Trophy Smallmouth Bass measuring 19.25-inches that was so wide in girth it looked distorted. 4th and final day they had a great finish catching both Northern Pike and Smallmouth Bass looking to catching their 4th Muskie in 4 days of fishing but that goal eluded them. They departed saying their fishing was terrific, service was great leaving with lifelong father and son memories.
