Fishing Vermillion Lake
Fishing Vermillion Lake from my pee-wee sea eagle pontoon boat is a hoot. I keep branching out and fishing different bays as I keep testing the reliability of making it back without running out of trolling motor power. Generally it is a good idea to head out in to the wind just in case you misjudge the point to turn around and head for the battery charger and harbor, at least the wind might help while rowing. So far I have had plenty of fishing and still plenty of power from the battery when I have returned.
I am catching a few fish, large mouth, small mouth and a few northern pike but not the "hogs" that were mentioned to me last week.
The weather has been all over the map. Very hot when we first arrived in the area and now quite cool and rainy. It is beautiful out on the lake. The loons have not disappointed as quite often I am greeted by their call when I come around a corner and surprise them.
Tomorrow, Friday evening, like most places in the country several suggested restaurants in the area are having "Friday night Fish specials" and we have been told of one at the "Landing" that we will be giving a try. Most that we have been familiar with serve cod or white fish but apparently the Landing will feature "Canadian Walleye".
We are planning on remaining in this area until we need to return to La Crosse for Kathleen's first orthopedic appointments.
