Special Ice Out Update…April 20th and the muskies are on the move!

Here’s a few shots of what is happening at 5:00 p.m. on April 20th.

A drastic change has occurred with a bit of wind from the north.  What ice remains is moving south……along with my swimming raft!  Time to throw a boat in the water and go on a rescue mission.

Say, what is this I spy down by the docks!  No, not a beaver……

Good for you for correctly guessing a “musky”.  Note the white scar on the head…  Now off to rescue the raft.

All’s well that ends well.  What will tomorrow bring?  Ice out??  Stay tuned….

  1. I’m looking forward you calling “Ice Out” on April 21!

    Wishing it wasn’t quite so early, but I know those Lakers will still be up in May…water can’t warm up that much!

  2. Great pics Gord and I was not off as far as you thought when you made joke of my guess

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!
