“I went out on Van Vliet today, but no musky. There are probably those who are wondering just what I accomplish in the course of a day. Here’s a guy who spends most of the day fishing for muskies and doesn’t catch any. Well, looking back at my working years with the Associated Press, I wonder how many days I really accomplished anything there. I remember answering the phone a lot. One day I kept a log and tallied 99 calls I answered. There was one woman who called several times a day, and it seems I always picked up the phone on her calls. In the seven years I worked at the AP she never once asked for me. I’ve probably spent the equivalent of one day of my life telling other people that this particular woman wanted to talk to them.
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.
