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!

On behalf of the Boyes Group, I would like to pass on our sincere thanks for hosting the Muskie Madness Week and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at VBL and had a great time!! This was our 7th year on Eagle Lake and we have stayed at a few other lodges but VBL takes the cake hands down! You can definitely count us in for next year. I’m happy to see you post some of my pics, they turned out well. Thanks again Gord for a wonderful week of fishing and your stellar hospitality, you run a first class operation, we look forward to seeing you next year!
