Ice Fishing with Henry……

My story about ice fishing with Henry.

ice fishing with Henry Henry has been a regular guest of Vermilion Bay Lodge  for the past number of years, chasing muskie, walleye and anything else that will bite in his “man boat”. This past week he paid us a visit to try something new……ice fishing with Henry.  Here he is jigging for lake trout on Teggau Lake, which at over 500 feet deep is one of the deepest lakes in the region.

An eater walleye from a spot in Vermilion Bay, on Eagle. Besides never having ice fished before, Henry had never driven a snowmachine before…….pretty exciting stuff, for a Polish guy from Chicago.

Susanne and Henry pose with a nice selection of lake trout from a small lake off of Eagle…….
They were a dark copper colour, but very tasty………..

Yours truly with a dandy walleye from Vermilion Bay. Caught in 25 feet of water on a Salmo Chubby Darter. Released to spawn this spring. Is that the lodge in the background?

Thank you very much for making my get a way week so enjoyable. Dan and I had a great time. You and Susanne should be commended on how clean and well maintained your cabins and lodge are. I will recommend you to anyone that is looking to go to Canada fishing and I look forward to the time I can come back.
