Ice out 2014…an update.



March 31, 2014


Winter is officially over…spring has arrived.  The question is “How do you have a winter storm warning when winter is over?”  The forecast is calling for over 30 cm. of snow for today….but what do I see on the horizon?  That’s right, warmer weather.  It can’t come too soon. 


Don’t forget about entering the ice out contest!  Send me your best guess for when Vermilion Bay will be ice free.  Stay tuned for more “ice out updates”!

  1. Gord…I would find the continuation of winter bothersome. Fortunately, spring has arrived in southern Wisconsin with temps in the 60s. My tomato plants are starting to flower as well.

  2. I vote for May 17th. I am hoping to come to Eagle Lake to our cabin by Cedar Point then to get it stocked and ready for summer.

  3. Brad Walker introduced me to you folks and I really enjoy your sight. I’ve been going to Merkel’s Camp for many years and really enjoy coming to the area. Dr. Walker speaks of you folks very highly. I think ice we be out by the 16th. Hope I’m right. We’re up the 2nd week of June. Can’t wait. Thanks again!

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.
