Chuckmeister Weiss……….

After honing his muskie fishing skills in the backwaters of Southern Ontario, artist Charles Weiss pays VBL a visit in his never ending quest for the elusive “lunge. Pictured above, Chuck unveils his new lure design…the “Fat Bastard” series. From left to right…the “Lil Fat Bastard”, the “Jointed Lil Fat Bastard” and finally the ultimate “Big Fat Bastard”. In the background, the original “Chubby Bastard”.

Proving that “Love is……a small muskie” Diane poses for the camera after catching her very first muskellunge. Chuck, while trying to hide the bitterness, proudly holds the fiesty catch for his lovely bride.

  1. Perchmaster,

    It's only a rumor, but the camp was buzzing about Gord finally catching a decent musky the week we were there. I haven't seen a picture, and I haven't heard if he was fishing the Fat Bastard.


  2. Those crazy eyes are the result of a bad case of muskie fever. The names of the lures are written on the back of each plug. GORD IS STILL HOPING TO CATCH THE VERY RARE LITERARY MUSKIE?

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!
