Mr Binky is gone

It was all smiles and hugs upon our arrival at VBL. What a lovely place to be in May. It’s been a long winter and we could hardly wait to get fishing.

Things suddenly turned dark when we heard the scream from Susanne in the lodge….”Mr Binky is gone”.

Sure enough. An evil ransom note. With a tear rolling down her cheek, Susanne shared the story of Mr. Binky. He was a special gift from the Perchmaster and his partner Mark. “Who would do such an evil thing?” Sobbed Susanne.

Like a game of Clue, it was time to start examining the evidence. There were too many likely suspects in camp and nobody left behind a bloody lead wrench.

Susanne pondered, “Is Mr. Binky o.k.? The Clown gets it?”

Sure enough. A photo of the once prominent Mr. Binky. He appears to be o.k. The real question? Will Gord spill the top secret fishing secrets shared over the years by the Perchmaster?

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.
