The “Stroupe Groupe”….Mid June Fishing with Dave, the “Walleye Wizard”

Scott Stroupe from Minneapolis has brought up his gang of fellow fishers for quite a few years now.  Always in June, they seem to find the fish……this year was no different.  A few years back they introduced a new member to the group…..Dave Johnson, who spends his time now in Arizona.  Dave had the distinction of never having caught a walleye……now he is known as the “Walleye Wizard”.  As physically and mentally challenged as Dave is, he is living proof that anyone can catch walleyes here at VBL.   This is their story………










May the force be with you fellow “Walleye Wizards”……

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.
