June 2023 Update…

Well the month of June has flown by. Thank you to all our guests this past month and thanks again for sharing your photographs with me! I know I’ve missed some good ones. If you feel you’ve been left out or have some good ones lurking on your phone send me a message with your pics and we’ll use them in the next blog post.

Fishing was great in June. Starting out early the trout and bass were cooperative. Walleye / pike have remained in the shallows even up to the end of June……making for some interesting catches casting or trolling. Musky season started out with a bang……a very nice 53 1/2 incher caught by Cheryl Perkis! Other nice ones caught and / or seen…..it’s looking to be a great musky season. Speaking of musky, I was reminded that pre-season muskies need to be “immediately” released as stated in the fisheries regulations…..we won’t be posting pictures of those fish accidentally caught pre-season unless it’s an “in the water release photo”.

Rather than some static photos from June I’ve put together a short slide show / video that I hope captures the highlights from this past month. You’ll notice in one aerial shot the water looks a bit “funky”. We were right in the middle of a major pine pollen event combined with low water…. Anyways hope you enjoy the video, and remember I have limited openings available for 2024. The early bird gets the worm!

    I’m counting down to when I’ll be ‘up north and back east’ at the camp and on the water.

On behalf of the Boyes Group, I would like to pass on our sincere thanks for hosting the Muskie Madness Week and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at VBL and had a great time!! This was our 7th year on Eagle Lake and we have stayed at a few other lodges but VBL takes the cake hands down! You can definitely count us in for next year. I’m happy to see you post some of my pics, they turned out well. Thanks again Gord for a wonderful week of fishing and your stellar hospitality, you run a first class operation, we look forward to seeing you next year!
