Old man winter has settled his icy grip over Eagle Lake but the build-up to total ice-over always holds a magical fascination for some people.  Denial?  Rage against the ice?  Tomorrow will be soon enough?  Optimism that your  boat can double as an ice breaker, if needed, seems to have worked this year for Brent.  Their cabin in Favell Bay will prevail till the ice is thick enough for their next visit via snow-machine.

Rather than leave off with this somewhat depressing message that winter is here, let’s reflect back on some of the more cheerful images from past seasons!

I don’t know about you but I feel much better after revisiting “summer”.  While we deal with the upcoming winter months there is nothing better than reminiscing about time on the water, fish caught and walleye dinners shared!

On behalf of the Boyes Group, I would like to pass on our sincere thanks for hosting the Muskie Madness Week and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at VBL and had a great time!! This was our 7th year on Eagle Lake and we have stayed at a few other lodges but VBL takes the cake hands down! You can definitely count us in for next year. I’m happy to see you post some of my pics, they turned out well. Thanks again Gord for a wonderful week of fishing and your stellar hospitality, you run a first class operation, we look forward to seeing you next year!
