June 24 Bass & Walleye

This has been one of the more unusual springs in terms of weather.  Water temperatures and weed growth are all several weeks behind.  This past week was probably the climax in terms of bass spawning with some hot and heavy action especially back on some of the portage lakes.  The Wilson group who went back to Caribou twice last week reported some fantastic action.  Walleye fishing is finally starting to establish some normal patterns.  Musky, on the other hand, is problematic with the lack of weeds and the scattered nature of their food source.  The Perkis group has normally done very well trolling for musky (they caught 14 several years ago) but struggled to put one in the net this year.

Such is the nature of fishing.  This week has started out with some fine walleye action.  The forecast is for some warmer temperature which should get things back on track for all species.  In the meantime here’s a few pictures of what happened here last week…

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.
