'Time on the Water"…….Quote #5

“Musky fishing is not for pessimists. You’ve got to believe that next cast will be the one, a notion that falls just short of being completely absurd. Realism must be avoided at all costs. If I knew I wasn’t going to catch a keeper for days at a time, it would be mighty hard to go out there every day. I should know it. That’s the way it’s always been, for me and for most others too. I guess you could say I know I probably won’t catch anything, but I don’t believe it.”

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.
