Ice Fishing Update

Another cold winter…

It’s been a slow start to ice fishing this winter with below normal temperatures and a corresponding decline in “Ice fishing gumption”.   However with the arrival of Chris and Nick (and new guy Judd) it was time to get serious about laying waste to the lake trout.

Assault on Eagle Lake…

With the -30 degree mornings we experienced the “assault” in a few different ways….mostly to our faces and hands.  Nick was after something bigger than the normal eaters we seemed to be pulling in so we spent a few hours fishing Eagle.  It’s not a numbers thing on the big lake, but there are some dandies lurking.  Nick was able to connect….

As with success, there must be failure.  Chris discovers the drama of hooking the “big one” and the misery of defeat…

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.
