Ice on the move………..

……….and so is Lucy. Nothing like a brisk swim in ice water to shake off the winter blues.

A canoe ride is the alternative that Susanne and I opted for. Unfortunately the ice was jammed up against the point ending our short adventure.

Here’s a shot around noon, about the time the wind started to pick up. Hey, wait a sec……does that say April 10th!! Still ice on the lake! Oh, Perchmaster, you shot for the stars and ended up hitting the ditch…….better luck next year!

A few hours later and the wind is working it’s magic. Note the strip of open water out in the centre of the bay. Will the ice succumb today? Tomorrow? Who the hell knows? Stay tuned!

  1. O'well there is always next year.
    Sure does look beutiful out there on the lake..
    Bet if you could get to my honey hole Sunday Gord and work those circles you could have a nice fresh walleye dinner for Susanne….
    Maybe try some of those lime green tinsel jigs that VMC came out with last year they caught lots of fish for us……
    OK no more tips for you till I get there….

  2. Your right the season doesn't close till the 15th. This would have to set some records…fishing out of a boat before the season closes! Unlikely I will get to do it but I imagine some of the spawning areas would be bulging with walleyes!

  3. Probably not a good idea you get out fishing now anyways as you need to get the camp ready.
    Who knows maybe by May 1st you will be done with all your work this year?
    But then again when you fall asleep tonight you will be thinking about those 30"+ lady walleyes roaming the shores of Eagle Lake….

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.
