Post blizzard ice out update…

I usually like to wait for some changes in ice melt before posting an update, but why not go in reverse?  More snow (14 inches!) has created the illusion that spring has avoided NW Ontario.  But never mind.  Like they say, “out like a lion, in like a lamb”.  I’m counting on seeing some sheep grazing the lawns here at the lodge very soon.  Till then here’s a few shots of the extreme spring of 2014.  Pictures were taken on April 1….and believe me this is not much of a joke.


I just couldn’t take it any longer.   The road was down to about 6 feet wide.  Time for the heavy equipment!



For those familiar with the Co-op in Vermilion Bay.  Some snow bank!


Never fear!  Spring will arrive.  You can count on high water levels, great fishing and owners happy to see some green grass, open water and warmer temps!


I really love having a tractor on days like these!

Have your Ice Out date picked yet?  You better get cracking.

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.
