Susanne and I decided to spend a few hours trying out our trolling techniques to find some walleyes. We did have a limited success. No big concentrations of fish but with water temps in the upper 40’s I was happy to have some action.
Susanne had the bragging rights with her slot sized fish…..mine on the other hand were more modest.
Seems like it was hard to avoid the lake trout. Susanne landed this 6 or 7 pounder and lost a smaller one near the boat.
A pair of bald eagles seem to be huddled together for warmth. The wind started to pick up and we had a Sunday night fish fry to get organized so back into the lodge for us. There’s always tomorrow, and many more spots to try!
“…hard to avoid the Lake Trout.”
We would like to announce the newest Russian member of Vermilion Bay Lodge… Masha… Her comments on the picture of the huge trouts and walleyes from opening weekend were… “whatever… I am only 6 weeks old…”.
Nice job on the decks and cabin reno’s.. Looking good. Next time I try to run down the hill from cabin 2 in the dark I won’t get the chance to trip and fall in the ditch as your new deck can break my fall.
Evgeni says to Henry, not to be frustrated from the ice… He can get him something that the russians use to de-ice the planes in Siberia… (It’s drinkable)!
One small request.. Please install seatbelts into the boat… I am not sure how we will get the car seat in the boat without them. 🙂 THX
Wishin we were fishin!
Welcome to the newest Russian family member of VBL – love her name and can’t wait to see her!! How are Mom and Dad doing, and how do you say that in Russian? Come and see us soon…Susanne
Keep rubbing it in I’m feeling the pain…
That 18 foot Alumarine looks awfully clean…..better fish a lot this year to give it that seasoned look….like the one you sport, Gord.
That’s a fine Walleye/ Yellow Pickerel !
What lure or bait rug was it cought on?

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.
