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?

If you’re looking for an outstanding vacation spot for the serious fisherman or a family get away you should consider Vermillion Bay Lodge on Eagle Lake, Ontario Canada. We have stayed at many lake resorts over the years, but none offer the simple pleasures of this one. The lake is large enough and holds enough fish for the most adventuresome fisherman and yet easy for local family fishing for young children. Bring your own boat or use one of the aluminum boats (20 hp) at the lodge. Boat dockage is well protected from the wind and allows easy access to the water.

What sets this lodge apart from most others is it is always clean, well kept with lots to do including paddle boats canoes, bon fires in the evenings and a just plain friendly atmosphere.
