your trip

Lake Vermilion

Minnesota's prized  inland shield lake provides incredible views while boasting 368 islands and over 1200 miles of shoreline. Dissecting the lake into east and west ends provides two separate fisheries differing in biological factors.This truly is an anglers paradise with an endless amount of structure and places for fish to hide. This also means that the lake can be quite humbling to new and experienced anglers alike who are not on the water every day.

What Can We Catch?

Vermilion is undisputedly one of Minnesota's premier walleye factories, while also being one the top destinations in North America for trophy muskies pushing 50"+. Smallmouth bass, northern pike, and an array of panfish can also provide exceptional opportunities at certain times of year.

Our Mandate

My mandate is to put anyone in my boat in the best position to: educate them on how to successfully locate, catch, and properly release fish, create positive memories that will last a lifetime, and ensure every trip spent with Rodsbent Guide Service is a success, one way or another.
