  1. The Professor and I fished the Wisconsin Opener on the big pond in two different boats. There was triple the number of boats that we typically see. Largely due to the late spring and inland lakes that are still frozen. This last weekend parts of northern Wisconsin had a foot and a half of snow.
    As it turned out, the weather was pleasant and the fish were cooperating for the most part. It will be interesting to think about the historical weather patterns and how this will impact fishing conditions. The professor and I are very much looking forward to “trout-o-rama” which should still be in full swing. We also look forward to harvesting some of those tasty bull perch that the perchmaster is going to leave for us this year.

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.
