April 16th saw Vermilion Bay Lodge thrown back into winter. So much for the warming trend! Looks like the ice melt on Eagle Lake has been put on hold…
….but, as usual the sun returns and hope for open water on Eagle Lake is back!
A flock of Golden-eye ducks appreciate the open water that is starting to spread.
Easter weekend and the Eagle Lake ice out process is speeding up. A winning date? Your guess is as good as mine!
Looks like my May 14th or so date is not looking good!!!
It’s looking better than those who picked dates in April! This could be a year where nobody guesses right. Still plenty of open May dates for those who haven’t guessed yet……
So that would mean whoever is is close to the ice out date wins a free trip to VBL!!!
I think it looks like it will be gone, right after the full moon on May 18th. 🙂

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.
