Eagle Lake Report, Early Summer, 2011

It has been an interesting summer here at Vermilion Bay Lodge and an Eagle Lake report is long overdue.  What are some of the things that have been happening at the lodge?  I’m glad you asked….

The early summer Eagle Lake report…

First off, an often asked question here at the lodge is “Does the Sasquatch in Vermilion Bay wear underwear?” Thanks to the investigative reporting, and inquisitive nature of the “Todd Cole group”, we finally can solve this urban legend…

The Sasquatch in Vermilion Bay....standing on guard for thee...What's beneath the loin cloth?
Oh my! Like the "Professor"....comando style!
Well done, Todd Cole group......mystery solved!

Any fish in this Eagle Lake Report?

You are right to ask…..this is a fishing lodge after all.  There were many noteworthy catches so far this season….

Big Muskie

Dan Perkis and a 50 inch muskie

Is there more to this Eagle Lake report?

I’ve added an assortment of pictures from this early summer to the end of this post…….sit back and have a gander at the slide show.  Stay tuned for further updates and the next Eagle Lake report!

  1. Well I have been under the weather and it has taken me sometime to get through all the pics but the one of Gord with all the cash, come on guy’s look at his cards by looking in the glass windows..

  2. Thank you Gord! Every time I visited the blog it was like the movie groundhog’s Day. We just couldn’t get away froom spring. I really like the picture of the nice musky next to the Whaler logo! Some day my Montauk will make rhe trip, but not this year.

    Keep up the great posts.

  3. Thank you for patiently waiting for an update. I think I have whipped the mental block I was having…..so hopefully will be able to post on a more regular basis.

  4. I was patiently waiting for an update–until about two weeks ago. Then patience dissappeared and desperation settled in. Last week, I realized that there was little to be gained by continuously re-reading Dustin’s post about his May trip. I even tried reading it backwards in the hope of gaining new insights to help me prepare for a solo trip to VBL in August. This didn’t help at bit. So, I’m relieved and grateful to know that Gord has overcome yet another mental block. Please note that he never once complained or bitched about his condition. This is to his credit.

    Unfortunately, there is far more to this situation. Gord revealed a shocking story last week after Andy and I expressed our sadness concerning the apparent demise of the Electric Beaver. He told us he had been ailing due to his thumb being stuck in his ass for several weeks. For this reason he was unable to post anything. We had no idea the suffering the man was enduring. Perhaps with the mental block thing going on he didn’t notice the unavailability of his thumb. He was unable to recall when he became aware of the problem. Frankly, this bothers me. Surely, someone noticed the problem during the past few weeks. How hard would it have been to pull him aside and ask about his thumb?

    The man has had a bit of a rough summer. Please consider sending him a kind word or making a brief phone call. I sense that this would be deeply appreciated and may help with the healing process. He’s not out of the woods yet.

    Gord…I’ll be wearing my commando outfit to the fish fry.

  5. Just finished my Vermillion Bay Lodge “take home” fish fry! Not quite as good as the fish we ate while staying the last week of July! Best fishing we have had in the years I have been part of the group that has made the trip.
    Gord and Susanne, Thanks again for the great hospitality! Only 350 days until we return to Vermillion Bay Lodge!

Thank you very much for making my get a way week so enjoyable. Dan and I had a great time. You and Susanne should be commended on how clean and well maintained your cabins and lodge are. I will recommend you to anyone that is looking to go to Canada fishing and I look forward to the time I can come back.
