Let’s portage to Highrock…

Nice eater wallye from Highrock..

Slot walleye
Another slot walleye
More walleye
And another slot
1 slot after another

Mark with a nice 36″ we won’t talk about my net job on 1 a little larger than this one

Check out the eyes on this one!!!!

Well the trek to Highrock was a little more work than normal due to low water levels the trip up the creek was slow but possible.

Things started out slow for us as we fished are normal spots but after several passes through the usual areas we moved and then found some great action on both walleye and Northerns.
Couple of good story’s from this trip as Mark was bringing in a 16″ or so walleye and as it was brought to the boat a LARGE I mean LARGE walleye in the neighborhood of 33-36″ by far the largest walleye I have seen in the water in my lifetime of fishing decides to take a swipe at it’s younger family member, what a site to see in the water that close to the boat.
Then only 15 minutes or so later I am bringing in a walleye in the 16-18″ range and out of from under the boat is a flash and a 45″ or so Northern grabs hold of my walleye and the fight is on, after maybe just less than 5 minutes as it is coming to the boat and we are going to try a double net job the large pike decides to let go of the walleye. You just never know what might happen on waters that don’t get much pressure.
If you have never made this trip it is well worth the work, in other years 2 trips would have been made to this great body of water but with the low water levels and hard work to get there not to mention the nice little walk through the wood 1 trip was enough, not to mention the GREAT fishing going on in Eagle lake we wanted to get back on to.
Hope you enjoyed the pics….

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.
