The First Post

Hello everyone and welcome to the “Electric Beaver”. A catchy name, that’s for sure. I hope you all received something just as “catchy” for Christmas and that your sights are set on a great New Year.

I thought a few pictures from 2008 might just remind us of some of the fun we had over the past season. Unfortunately for me it seems that I need to do further research on the ins and outs of posting pictures to this blog.
Well, to be current here is a picture of my first ice fishing sortie to “the rock”. Note the way this huge whitefish has me leaning to support its weight. It’s also possible that I was just exhausted from weeks of Christmas cheer. That might also explain the look on my face.
For those keen into the fishing aspect of what is going on now…..there is about 12 inches of ice on the lake with maybe a foot of snow. The whitefish was caught on a Salmo jigging lure in a perch color in about 15 feet of water. I can’t say we have put any serious effort into fishing yet. I will be wetting a line tomorrow and Susanne & I are planning our annual New Years Day trout fishing excursion to Clearwater Lake.
Stay tuned for updates…

  1. I insisted on being the first to post a comment on Gord’s Eagle Lake blog…now about that sauna, and what about those pictures of the “two” muskies that I caught and how about…From Susanne

  2. NO Sauna Susanne.
    That is why we love to visit your country now could we stomach the site of Gord in skibby’s and and no shirt?

  3. There was something troubling about the name “electric beaver”. And then it came to me. I had heard that before on the television show “Who’s line is it anyway”. You know that crazy yank show hosted by Drew Carey. Well after doing a google search on my lunch hour, x-rated popups began sprouting up all over the screen. Of course that is when the Dean chose to drop by the office. Well, now I’m out of jail and I found the citation. Go to: (skip ahead to the 4 minute mark if you would like).

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.
