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.

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.
