Remembering back to 2014 when the River Monster crew were here during “Musky Madness”. It was a crazy week, and even crazier that it’s been 8 years already. How time flies! Best to get the Fall Blog report underway…
To the end of the season of 2022….and 30 years of VBL! Thanks to all of you who made last year, and the last 30 years, so memorable and enjoyable! We’re looking forward to 2023 and beyond. I’ll leave you with a few more pictures to end with…
As an addendum to yesterdays blog post I offer this update…November 20, 2022. Yesterday I posted the current lake view and postulated the bay would be frozen over by today. Here’s a shot from a few minutes ago…
One picture I forgot to include which I think is interesting for a number of reasons. First and foremost, it’s a giant of a laker….38 inches. Caught in October while casting for musky is not unheard of but it is unique. Of course the trout season is closed and fish at this time of year are all released. I think it speaks to the diversity of Eagle Lake and the quality of the fishery. Sure it can be tough at times, but this is not a “cookie cutter” lake with one or two species. Five major species with trophy potential for all of them. 68,000 acres, mostly undeveloped and remote. It never fails to surprise me.
Thanx for the fish pix
Great time this year on both of my visits.
Another fine year in the books. I can’t wait for more adventures in 2023. Thank you to Gord and Susanne for your amazing hospitality.
Like the fish photographs and the trophy fish wood carvings .
Thirty years to cheer.
The lodge is a favourite and vital spot along the waters edge of Eagle Lake.

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!
