The past week could be characterized by gusty winds, rain and cool temperatures. The fireplace in the lodge has been fired up and it sure feels like fall is here. The Hamm family from Manitoba made the best of it on their first trip to VBL…
As you can see it wasn’t all bad in terms of weather. Even so, the walleye were cooperative.
Randy Edwards may have his name in the record book as the first angler to catch a crappie on Eagle Lake. Not sure if this is a good thing, and it seems by the size of the fish (13 inches) it was likely transplanted to the lake by some misguided (I have another descriptor, but will not use it here) angler. What does it mean going forward? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
We reported in the last blog that the boat on McGregor was out of commission due to motor issues. Well, Hugh and I made the trip back to swap out the motor and tank with a replacement…….
Thanks to Bob Wilson for entertaining us at the Sunday night fish fry!
Still time left to hit the lake…….

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.
