Things you may not have seen before………

Fish soup made by the “Russians” out of heads and fins. It looked weird but it was actually pretty good!

This pineapple-looking floating object is either a limb from a giant amphibian, or the root system of what is commonly referred to as a lily pad. Don’t show this to the Russians, it’s probably edible.

You won’t see this too often……a swimming eagle. Perhaps having a brisk “dip” on a hot day, or just a case of not stopping before hitting the water. Either way, he / she looked a little “p-o’ed”.

Nothing like the humiliation of having to dry out on a rock when you screw up! (photography by Mike B.)

  1. Gord,

    Is that an eagle's beak that I see in the fish stew?

    If the number of Eastern European guests continues to increase, those gulls are going to go hungry. Personally, I think the diversity of your guests adds a nice dimension to discussions in the lodge and fish house.


  2. GREAT photography Mike. Especially the eagle pictures. They remind me a lot of when my cousin, John, fell out of the boat while attempting to land a Muskie. Just like the eagle, John was also humiliated and p-o'ed when he was drying off. True story. Right Gord?

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.
