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.

On behalf of the Boyes Group, I would like to pass on our sincere thanks for hosting the Muskie Madness Week and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at VBL and had a great time!! This was our 7th year on Eagle Lake and we have stayed at a few other lodges but VBL takes the cake hands down! You can definitely count us in for next year. I’m happy to see you post some of my pics, they turned out well. Thanks again Gord for a wonderful week of fishing and your stellar hospitality, you run a first class operation, we look forward to seeing you next year!
