Opening day “Trout-o-Rama”………

Sure, it’s opening day of walleye season, but why bother with those when conditions are prime for some light tackle trout action.  Water temps at 48 degrees, overcast and a slight chop……and a couple of hours to explore the “Walleye Highway”.  Today it was a trout expressway!





There’s nothing like catching shallow lake trout on light tackle.  If you haven’t tried it make sure you pencil it in for 2013!

    How big was that one Gord?

  2. Gord….its not penciled in. We have it in ink. See you soon. Kurt we will try to catch and release a nice one on your behalf. That might ease the pain a bit?

  3. Kurt,
    We will do everything you taught us! I picked up two of the top secret “c” baits….now carried at Dorn’s hardware in Madison.

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.
