The Legend of Big John

Sung to the tune of “Big John”….

Yes, Big John has big feet. Yes, he has big hands. And yes, those big hands can make large 26″ walleyes look small.

Big John was new to bottom bouncing, but he picked up the technique well and caught a boat load of slot walleyes on the last day we were up at VBL.
Next year we will teach him how to hold a fish for a photo.

  1. Poor John! You guys should at least chip in and buy him his own rubber glove!

    Nice fish John-Boy. It's good that Professor Bill was guiding you and showing you his secret knowledge.

If you’re looking for an outstanding vacation spot for the serious fisherman or a family get away you should consider Vermillion Bay Lodge on Eagle Lake, Ontario Canada. We have stayed at many lake resorts over the years, but none offer the simple pleasures of this one. The lake is large enough and holds enough fish for the most adventuresome fisherman and yet easy for local family fishing for young children. Bring your own boat or use one of the aluminum boats (20 hp) at the lodge. Boat dockage is well protected from the wind and allows easy access to the water.

What sets this lodge apart from most others is it is always clean, well kept with lots to do including paddle boats canoes, bon fires in the evenings and a just plain friendly atmosphere.
