Deep freeze at VBL…

Seems that many are being affected by the same polar vortex that we have been experiencing here at the lodge.  A few minus 40 mornings have been a bit of an eye opener!

After two weeks of floating in the Caribbean this comes as a bit of a shocker.  Due to the recent eating, drinking, lounging binge Susanne has me on the “regime”.  This basically consists of cabbage soup and daily snowshoeing to rewind the growth spurt that has occurred in my nether regions.  Not sure if it’s working but after a couple weeks I feel less likely to have a stroke on the next snow shoe outing.

The freeze is on.
The trail system getting bigger each day!
On a list of favorite things the dogs like to do, snowshoeing is somewhere between eating and going for a ride in the truck.

Summer will be here soon!

Even though the weather says otherwise, it’s not too soon to be planning for this summers fishing adventures.  I mention this to jog some of you into beginning the planning process.  Based on our bookings it looks like another busy season so give me a call soon to make sure the week you need is still available.  In the meanwhile stay warm!

Some food for thought…

If you are still having trouble conjuring up images of summer have a look at this article by Bob Izumi (Real Fishing) and stay tuned for the upcoming tv show in March featuring VBL!

  1. Warm air currents, perhaps the hot air at VBL, drove the polar vortex south. Perhaps a wall would keep those currents from migrating south in the future? Looking forward to an ice fishing report!

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.
