Opening update

Just a quick photo update on opening week.  Early season big trout action was “on” for most of the week…..some good walleye and pike as well.  Bill and Andryea did the Clearwater portage and had the lake to themselves (the advantage of low water!).   Ed Sutfin scored three big trout in one day on VBay…..36 inches being the biggest.  Cabin 4 is looking good with just some finishing touches needed in the porch.

Here’s what I’m talking about!…

First trout of the season….Mary L. and a 32 inch chilly release on opening day!

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.
