The ice………she lingers……….

…….like the aroma of a wet dog on your truck seat………it takes a while to dissipate. So too with the ice. With a switch in wind direction the ice has moved back towards the lodge……….that’s the black area on the photo.

Susanne and I hiked down the walking trail to a point past the government dock…..McColl’s Island and Strawberry Island in the background, with some ice off to the right.

What’s left of the ice looks like this……just a bunch of ice shards packed together. I would be surprised to see what’s left last another day. Some rain for tomorrow should finish it off…..stay tuned!

  1. Some more great pics Gord
    I can see those lake trout roaming the shores of Vermilion Bay in those pics, you might want to get out for an hour and troll those hot spots and hook into a 20lb trout for the blog…

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.
