Ice out drags on…..

Strong south-west winds have pushed what ice remains over to Strawberry & McColls Island.

Today, the ice is still moving around on the eastern side of Vermilion Bay. This picture does not do a good job of picking up the ice, but the band of black near the far shore is in fact ice. Between Round Island and Canoe Narrows is still looking pretty solid. A change in wind direction would probably finish it off. My criteria for “ice out” is when I can’t see ice… we’re not there yet! I wonder how the trout fishing would be right now…..pretty good I bet!!!

  1. It's just great to see that much water again. I think there's more water in your pictures than we have in the whole state of New Mexico. Hope you'll be on the water soon……Bill

If you’re looking for an outstanding vacation spot for the serious fisherman or a family get away you should consider Vermillion Bay Lodge on Eagle Lake, Ontario Canada. We have stayed at many lake resorts over the years, but none offer the simple pleasures of this one. The lake is large enough and holds enough fish for the most adventuresome fisherman and yet easy for local family fishing for young children. Bring your own boat or use one of the aluminum boats (20 hp) at the lodge. Boat dockage is well protected from the wind and allows easy access to the water.

What sets this lodge apart from most others is it is always clean, well kept with lots to do including paddle boats canoes, bon fires in the evenings and a just plain friendly atmosphere.
