Rain, wind, cold, sun, high water and a bonus hatch of blackflies sums up the past week. Through it all good times were had by all and some exceptional catches. The fishing is just starting to heat up…bigger walleye seem to be more active as the water warms. The shallow trout bite was very good…..how long it will last is up to our next anglers who start arriving tomorrow. Here’s a photo log of the past week…
The upcoming weather seems to be an improvement and hopefully water levels will come down. On a positive note we are able to resume our Sunday night fish fry this week as our whitefish supplier is back in operation after some flooding in his fish house. Good news! Stay tuned for the follow week’s update!
Never a dull moment at VBL. 🎣
Gord, thanks for a great week. The fishing was only surpassed by the hospitality. And who knew you were such a burger chef (although looking forward to fish fry next spring – the boys are already making plans…)!

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.
