Spring Bay Resort
Lake Vermilion, West End
June 23-30, 2018
I took Stacey and Joshua up for the first time to Spring Bay Resort in Cook, Minnesota for our first family outing together on Lake Vermilion. I had visited there on four previous occasions and always felt at home there. The weather was great for the most part. Sunny and windy the first couple days. We had a couple strong thunderstorms mid-week and towards the end of our stay.
We stayed in the Keenan cabin for the week and the cabin was spacious and nice!
We caught lots of smallmouth bass around the islands and chunk rocks. All of them caught on a 3″ Ned Zone and the Clackin’ Crank. We caught some nice northerns in the Partridge River using big curly tail grubs, crankbaits, and a black Pike Enthraller. In the back of Woody’s Cove I found a few chunky largemouth on topwater frogs, wacky worm, and the old Dance ‘N Eel. The key was to keep moving from spot to spot and planning to catch a couple of fish at a spot.
The highlights of the trip was walking down to Moosebirds for ice cream and playing at the beach. We drove a golf cart for fun around the resort. We visited The Landing for a big bacon cheeseburger on our first night and that was delicious!
Another fun memorable trip in the books! We will be coming back next year.
