This morning a third of the bay was ice covered, and had blown to the south-east.  Here a few shots from this morning……

By late afternoon the ice pack was gone!  Ice out = April 29, 2016!  Thanks to all those who sent in a guess…..there was over 40 people who took a shot at it.  Congratulations to runners up George Benger (April 28) and Don Graham (April 30)…..better luck next year boys!  The winner for 2016 with the only correct guess is, once again, Katie Perkis…….now a two time Ice Out Champion!  She will be rewarded with her choice of fabulous VBL bling, and will be the envy of those at camp.   Here’s a few shots of the lake this evening……ice free!  I think I see a trout………

  1. Those things are called geese in the US. Did they change the name to Canadian Trout up there?

    I’m pretty well crushed about not winning this year ……….:(


  2. In a few weeks, I see happy fishermen, returning with a walleye catch and the well reward libations following a hard day on the water, on one of the most beautiful lakes in Ontario. Keep up the good work Gord

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!
