8/21/18  Weather is beautiful and fish are biting! Water temps are dropping. Stop in and get your Timbuktu gear while it's still here!

1/15/19 Happy New Year!

Ice conditions are not too great from what we've heard

& we have below zero temps today!


4/30/19 Official Ice Out Date

by MN DNR!

3/21/19 Happy 1st day of Spring  (?!) There is still 2' of ice on the lake and we are waiting for a nice warm up!


Rain & Clouds but Fish are biting on minnows (regardless of the rainbow shortage on the lake)!

Warmer temps to come..see you soon!


Water temps are reported at 61 degrees...the fish are biting &

muskies are in site!



The weather was great over the

4th of July holiday & eveyone soaked up the warm sun on Vermilion!

Fishing has been tricky lately but that's

why we don't call the sport


7/26/18 Can't believe how the summer is flying by. Muskie action is picking up & walleye are jumping in the boat :) 

5/1/18 Ice is slowly but surely moving out of Oak Narrows;

public dock and Timbuktu docks are puddling but still have ice...

won't be long now! We are hoping for a successful fishing opener

so keep your fingers crossed!

4/16/18 Well, another 10" of snow descended upon Lake Vermilion yesterday...keep wishing for warmth & sunshine

or we may not make it on the lake until the 4th of July!

4/13/18 The 1st entry to the  Up North Update  tab on our new site!

Sure wish it was a photo of open water at the public dock...Think Spring!
