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?

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.
