  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.

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.
