I don’t like spiders and snakes

Nobody likes to be overwhelmed by a school of skinny “snake” northerns. Perchmaster, you have undoubtedly experienced this while fishing for those bull perch? We sure did.

However, there are many opportunities for large pike....often overlooked by people who are pursuing musky. The following pics are a few pictures of a half day spent pursuing those pike. The biggest pike (40″) exploded on a shallow running shad rap coming out of the cabbage last August. It performed several nice tail dances on the surface. If you aren’t a multi-species angler on Eagle, 2010 is the year to give it a try.

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.
