Ice out update for March 21………

What I can tell you from the East Cape is that it is 90 plus degrees on the water and I have no clue what’s happening to the ice on Vermilion Bay……so keep your guesses coming and I will update you as soon as I return.  Let me just say I have full confidence in being able to take the quad over into the portage lakes to deliver gas for the summer when I return……


For your fishing pleasure I include this picture of a yellow tail tuna I caught today…….about 25 pounds.  I’ve tried several days at landing one of these with no luck.  It’s been hit or miss and a real lesson in the difference between expectation and reality!  It’s fishing after all.

  1. Nice tunny fish.!!!! Not so sure about those shorts though…..there a whole lot of stuff going on there. I guess that is one way to attract some attention to one’s loinage.


  2. Is it true that on April 1, Vermilion Bay celebrates a day much like Sulfestuka in Norway? Rumor has it that this the first day that your lilly white ars sees the sun for the first time upon exiting the sauna. I believe it’s known as Gordstuka. If it’s true, I am sure the Perchmaster could be regaled with a short story filled with pictures?

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.
