Some warm days and sunshine are starting to work their magic on the ice. It’s looking very grey and melting away from shore. Waterfowl is congregating around the open water in the creek, and Romeo, the lone Great Blue Heron is once again taking up his position. Let’s see some shots from around the lodge…
Last week I mentioned the idea of having guests send up a short story that might be of interest to readers of the VBL blog. Here’s the first of hopefully many more in an interesting series…
— My daughter Noelle, came up to me one day and said “I want to go fishing in Canada and I want to catch a muskie” Now I haven’t been to Canada fishing for about 10 years and I really wanted to go so I said Hell yeah lets go. I knew I wanted to come back to Eagle Lake but where to stay? I had been to other places on the lake but wasn’t sure I wanted to bring my daughter there. Then I remembered reading some posts from a guy named Gord on Walleye Central. He sounded legit and had a resort on Eagle. The rest is history–5 years later all 3 of my daughters come with every summer and we have a great time. I even told them they have to spread my ashes on a few select spots on Eagle and drink an ice cold Kokanee! Really bummed that I can’t make it for opening week this year due to corona virus but will be there in August to squeeze 2 weeks of fishing into one!
Bob’s bio is short and incomplete. A man of mystery, a VBL guest, and a man willing to put pen to paper….thank you Bob!
More Bob. Less Gord.
How ’bout some “Brad”?
I enjoyed Bob’s tale, but this ice-out contest is starting to feel like its rigged again.
Reading the blog is supposed to make you feel better Andy, not worse. Send me a story Grasshopper.
I think I would like to share an adult beverage with Bob as he knows where the Mooskies are. Also more fish pix please
Ice is still on lake, unfortunately, so l can say no rigging by Gord, yet!!!!! Hope to see all of the guests at some point in the future. Stay safe and healthy, the fish are getting bigger as we wait.
Hey Bob – I always bug Gord about “wasting away the day on Walleye Central”…he is always happy to point out when a guest mentions that they “met” Gord on the site! Great photos with you and your girls. I think your self photo is causing some screened porch envy out there!

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.
