The evening bite is on….wish you were here!

Well its been a week and we have been focusing on the early morning fishing. Tonight we went out after dinner and trolled tail dancers, minnow raps, and junior deep diving thundersticks. The bite was very good! A fair number of slot and over the slot walleyes and some perfect pike for the frying pan. Kurt and Mark also had some great evening fshing for walleyes with jigs and will likely be posting some photos soon. One of the nice things about VBL, is that there are always some great guests – all with different experiences and tips for fishing. Don’t be afraid to ask! I should also note that Gord and Susanne slayed the walleyes and pike this morning just off of gull island. The storm had blown a lot of warm water into the bay and the fish were snapping.

We have had a number of thunderstorms, but between storms we found a few very nice smallies in the cabbage in Sportsman’s bay that liked the swim bait.

If you haven’t booked your trip to VBL…what are you waiting for?

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.
