Minnesota guide Billy Rosner of Wild Country Guide Service gives his latest Buzz Bite Report for Lake Vermilion on June 8th, 2022.
Lake Vermilion Buzz Bite Report 6-8-2022
We’ve been catching good numbers of walleyes pitching shorelines with jigs and plastics. 1/8th ounce jigs paired with a Big Bite Jerk minnow in the color white has been our best bait.
The fish aren’t necessarily schooled up, but you can catch a few as you go. You can also expect to run into northern pike as well.
We are also catching walleyes in transition areas in 12 to 18 feet of water on Lindy rigs pulling crawlers and leeches. Look for rock to sand or sand to mud bottom transitions.
The smallmouth bass have made the push up shallow to spawn and you can also find crappies up shallow as well.
Muskies opened up this past weekend and a few fish can be found in the back of some shallow bays or over deep water near schools of baitfish. Smaller sized blades or rise and dive baits have worked for those shallower fish, and rubber baits or larger trolling baits seem to be the ticket for those deep water fish.
The fishing should continue to be good for the next few weeks. Good luck to all the anglers fishing up on Lake Vermilion. Have fun and be safe!
