News Flash: Remains of outfitter found on Delano Lake…suspected cause of death linked to never ending winter!
Well, things aren’t that bad yet but the skull is proof that long winters can be deadly. Here’s a photo journal from today’s travel over four area lakes.
Pretty much all lakes are down to a skiff of snow over frozen slush / bare ice. There are some signs of coming spring, such as the creeks that are starting to flow….
…and of course the evidence of a harsh winter such as this deer carcass on Delano Lake….
This weekend seems to be the turning point for winter to spring temperatures which is about time! Mid 50 degree F. days predicted for next week will go a long way to getting us to ice out……Have your guess in yet?
That looks like a lot shorter trip by snow machine.
So you go all the way over to McGregor and you don’t pull out a couple wally’s?
You should be jigging for some perch over in the hot spot on no name lake
I am aware of several good spots on no name lake. I was unaware of THE hot spot. Would you mind placing an “x” on our map so that we might be able to produce yet another great virtual fishing trip for the Perchmaster?
Andy, I’m afraid the Perchmaster has become a permanent “virtual fisherman”. From now on he will be living vicariously through web postings and commentary from “actual” VBL guests. Let us hope that he will come to his senses soon and return to the fold.
Well, all things have a beginning, middle and end. The Perchmaster had a good run and distinguished himself as a fine multi-species angler. He still is capable of writing a sentence or two on occasion for this blog. And given his condition, I admire that. Is it true that he wants his ashes scattered under Cabin 2?
Gord I think he will come around. Life is too short not to be an actual fisherman. I lost a colleague a few weeks ago who dropped dead of a heart attack at the age of 36 while jogging. A neighbor of mine who is about 40 broke his hip this winter, they then discovered lymphoma cancer and now he lost his dad last week. Some things like fishing just can’t be put off too long.
O Professor thanks for the compliments if that is what they were.
No my ashes will be scattered on my evening walleye spot and maybe a little on the portage lake and the perch honey hole.
Believe me Andy that is why I play hard while I can you just never know when your number will be coming up.

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.
