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.

This is a first class resort located on Vermillion Bay on Eagle Lake. The cabins are very clean and well kept. The boats are new with new motors and are in great shape. The owner will also clean your fish for you after your day on the water. Make no mistake the fishing on Eagle Lake is world class.

The Lodge is owned by Gord and Susanne Bastable who will make you feel welcome and before you know it you feel like family. They are the best of hosts. The atmosphere is low key and laid back leading to a great vacation.

This is my 19th year of enjoying the hospitality of the lodge and i can’t think of going anywhere else on Eagle Lake.
