  1. Thanks for the update. After 3 or 4 days I get squirrelly without one. The car siding looks very nice….hope I can still afford to come.

      1. I’m duly impressed with your efforts on Cabin 7. It reminds me of an old time cabin with new cabin charm. Will you be stocking it with the beautiful VBL Mugs from yesteryear?
        Andy is a bit of a soft-touch when it comes to appeals for financial support (such as your’s to the Perchmaster). He and I have talked and have decided to dedicate our entire September trip bill to the Cabin 7 Renovation Fund. We hope this enables you to find the motivation needed to spend lavishly on your guests.

  2. Teal River, Steve K. from Richland Center is joining us the third week in August. He will come armed with a few Teal River rods.

  3. Gord,
    I think you better secure a lease on an ice breaker boat. Clear the lake right up to about 100 yards of your competitors. Dustin doesn’t want to have to fish with an auger.

  4. Gord, if it is the tough economy getting in the way of the Perchmaster making a visit I truly feel for him. It has impacted a lot of people. However I have a solution. Hire him as a movie extra (volunteer carpenter), and post a video of him exiting the sauna on his way to the job site wearing an apron and singing YMCA. It might go viral and open up a whole new audience to VBL? I bet he can swing a hammer with the best of them.

    1. Andy, a carpenters apron would not work for the Perchmaster. You need butt cheeks, or at least some hip bones to hold it up. As far as the hammer idea, I’m not sure if he is capable of swinging something heavier than a 1/16 oz. jig head tipped with a piece of Chena bait……

On behalf of the Boyes Group, I would like to pass on our sincere thanks for hosting the Muskie Madness Week and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at VBL and had a great time!! This was our 7th year on Eagle Lake and we have stayed at a few other lodges but VBL takes the cake hands down! You can definitely count us in for next year. I’m happy to see you post some of my pics, they turned out well. Thanks again Gord for a wonderful week of fishing and your stellar hospitality, you run a first class operation, we look forward to seeing you next year!
