July 28 “Walleye Madness”

The 14th annual Walleye Madness week was one of the highlights of the past week.  Specifically, the contest ran 3 days with the biggest walleye released being crowned the winner.  There were plenty of walleye being caught…

3rd place Mark Erdman with a 25 inch walleye.
2nd place Scott Wesling (Weasel) with a 25 1/4″ walleye.

In the “other” division (non-walleye) we had a couple of significant entries…

2nd place Len Belpedio with a 41″ musky…
1st place with his first musky was Andy Bushman with a 42″ fish.

Speaking of musky, they have been particularly active.  Shown here is Cory Meyer with a good one day catch of three nice fish (38, 40 & 42)…

Cory’s son Alex also had some luck with musky…43 1/2 inches!

It was an enjoyable week with a lot of great guests, some fine weather and good fishing opportunities.  Here’s some of the kids in action…

By the way, if you haven’t had the chance to attend a walleye madness, one of the highlights is the awards night / pot luck dinner.  It was another outstanding meal thanks to our guests…

We hope to see you next year July 18-25 for the 15th annual Walleye Madness!

Testimonials

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.
