2020 Ice Out Update…8.0

Conditions are changing rapidly…

With a strong west wind the ice has headed towards Strawberry Island and Johnson’s Point leaving about half the bay with open water at this time (4:00 p.m.).

I’m sure all those who have their guess’s picked for around early May are starting to feel all tingly. Is it the virus? No, just a frenzied anticipation of winning this contest!

Thanks again to Bob Swanson for putting together a VBL Tale for the last blog addition. Several others have made promising noises about doing the same….we shall see.

The last coat of varnish for cabin 8! A new kitchen counter going in followed by new flooring….

This is a first class resort located on Vermillion Bay on Eagle Lake. The cabins are very clean and well kept. The boats are new with new motors and are in great shape. The owner will also clean your fish for you after your day on the water. Make no mistake the fishing on Eagle Lake is world class.

The Lodge is owned by Gord and Susanne Bastable who will make you feel welcome and before you know it you feel like family. They are the best of hosts. The atmosphere is low key and laid back leading to a great vacation.

This is my 19th year of enjoying the hospitality of the lodge and i can’t think of going anywhere else on Eagle Lake.
