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.

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.
