Early Season Smallmouth

with James & Nick Lindner

Although Lake Vermilion is more famous for fabulous walleye fishing, growing big panfish and huge musky, the lake has a load of smallmouth bass in it, too. There’s a lot of water to cover but persistent anglers can dial it pretty quickly once you know what to look for based on the season. In this case, it’s early season, so we expect these fish to be moving into the shallow to spawn. Using your electronics and detailed mapping allows you to quickly eliminate water to identify likely shallow spots.
