With all the new snow and colder temps it was time to strap on the snowshoes and check out some of the trails behind the lodge.
Great pictures, Gord. Keep 'em coming.
VERY VERY nice GordGood to see you getting that old arse out and about instead of laying on the couch.
The photography id great. WE DON'T HAVE THAT MUCH SNOW!
Great set of pictures. It shows a side of VBL that we don't get to experience.
When Gwen and I lived in Minnesota we would make trips up to Gord and Susannes home on the north end of the lake and would jump on the snow machines and do some great fishing and sight seeing in the winter. These pictures bring back some indlible memories. Maybe they should keep VBL open all year long.
NewMexicam Maybe it is time to move back to the Midwest?That would be nice to be able to shoot up to VBL for a long week-end in the winter to do some Eagle Lake ice fishing with Gord but 700 miles is just to far for that idea….
Think I need to win the lottery so I can start living the real life……
Second try… Did something wrong before. Perchmaster, It's always fun to hear your comments. Maybe it's because my mom was born in Sheboygan. Yes sometimes it would be nice to be living closer to VBL. When I come up I drive 3 1/2 hours to the airport, then I fly over 1200 miles to Minneapolis, Then it's another 2 1/2 hours to Long Prairie, Mn, and the next day Buck and I drive another 8 hours to the Lodge. I would walk it if I had to but I would have to start in January. I have been coming to Eagle Lake for 37 years. I'm not sure but I think I can remember when I was taller than Gord. I do have pictures of me holding Holly when she was an infant. My closest friends know that VBL is my second favorite place on the planet bowing only to my home and my bride. Be well. We are fortunate to be part of the "Bastable in crowd"……..Bill
Now that's impressive! Does Gord provide you with a complimentary coffee mug or jig in recognition of your long trip?
Andy, I did get a mug last year and after we had a number of Captain Morgans on the deck he did break into a funny little dance (I think it was a Jig)and then he went home to bed. It was about 7:30.
Youse guys are funny!

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!
