August, 2016 Pike-O-Rama

Had another great August trip to VBL with good friends Steve Kohlstedt and rookie Dick Pederson. While we had a good mixed bag, it will likely be remembered as the Pike-O-Rama.

Dick finished off one day with this nice pike

Dicks fish was the second to last fish we caught on a day with about 30 pike in the boat.   Kept 10 eaters for the freezer. We like eating fish and we love to see Gord work his magic. When it comes to Gord, idle time is the devils playground.

The haul


On on anotherday I caught this nice pike.

Nice 42″ Pike released to swim another day

Of course there were also these beauties…

Anyone can catch a big one. This takes skill…


There were also plenty of slot and over the slot fish that were released.

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.
