Hike along a trail or blaze your own path across Lake Vermilion.


Thank you to the volunteer efforts of the Vermilion Prenguin Snowmobile Club and other area snowmobile clubs. We have endless miles of well-groomed snowmobile trails in addition to the well-mapped routes on Lake Vermilion right out our front doors.


Fortune Bay's ice fishing houses are heated and have a power source to charge your phone or other electronics. They provide the live bait, you bring the equipment and transportation. The houses are typically located through the narrows of Everett's Bay into Big Bay, which is roughly one mile past the marina. Houses are periodically moved based on scouting done by professional guides. More information may be found here.
