Ice Out Update #7….April 27, 2016

Some action happening this afternoon!  An east wind has started moving the ice causing a bit of a pile-up on Gull Rock, much to the annoyance of the gulls.  There is even a gap that has opened up from Gull Rock extending towards the Government Dock.

Lake levels are way up which is nice.  Today I even put the wood boat in the water.  Wish I could say because I’m going fishing……no, I just need the trailer to send the new upgrade boat to Kenora for it’s 40 horse “fitting”.

By the way, still not too late to enter an ice out guess if you haven’t already done so.  Email your guess to Gord.

Here’s some images from late this afternoon….

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.
