You can own a lake lot on one of these lakes! – Vermilac Lake

U.P. Offers Three Lake for Pike Opportunity

Vermilac Lake In Baraga County

The day may come, of course, when trophy hunting doesn’t provide fast enough action, and you yearn for 1-gallon plastic bags of pike filets to take home for pickling. That’s when anglers turn to Vermilac Lake, aka Worm Lake.

Vermilac spans 622 acres and, believe me, most anglers won’t go 5 minutes before pulling a pike out of a hole. Michigan DNR’s Gunderman describes it as “a family place, without many pike reaching 24 inches. Most of the pike will average 17 to 22 inches, but there is no size limit.” This is very fun fishing, especially when it’s hand-over-hand combat with a mouthful of teeth at the other end of a tip-up line.

Only 7 feet deep, the lake does not experience winterkill because of the steady influx of fresh water from the Murphy and Vermilac rivers, and the out-flowing Rock River. Experienced anglers know that fishing in close proximity to these current spots offers super prospects for catching lots of feisty pike.

Vermilac Lake is located north of Crystal Falls on Highway 141 near Covington. There is a launch access and a view of the lake from Hwy. 28.

Information on Baraga County and Vermilac Lake is available by calling the Western Lake Superior Management Unit of the DNR at (906) 353-6651.
