Marina and Fishing

Explore more than 40,000 acres of water and make the catch of the day on Lake Vermilion!

Our on-site marina is your one stop shop for all of your fishing or lake activities. Whether you just want to launch your own boat or rent one of ours, we can make your day on Lake Vermilion a pleasant one!

We feature an 80-slip marina that can handle fishing boats, pontoons, houseboats and even float planes. Fortune Bay’s Marina also features the lowest premium gas prices on Lake Vermilion! If you don’t want to bring in your own watercraft, we have boat and pontoon rentals available to our guests. We also feature hydro bikes, canoes, paddle boats, paddle boards and kayaks for those who want to do a little exploring of Everett’s Bay next to our resort.

The bait shop features a wide assortment of fishing tackle, live bait, rods, and reels. There are plenty of snacks available and we are pleased to offer off sale beer and wine coolers. Fortune Bay’s Marina also has a complimentary fish cleaning shack for those anglers bringing in a stringer full of fish.

Our friendly staff can also tell you where the fish are biting on any given day! Call 218-753-7875 for more information!

The marina is seeing more Muskie fishermen and women coming through as the season just opened over the weekend. We’ve only tracked down a few to question about where the muskies are at thus far, and no one has had much luck yet. According to a few, they’re seeing lots of fish and getting follows to the boat, but none seem to be feeling aggressive enough to bite yet. The reports will likely be more positive as the season progresses into the summer months!
