Updates…April 24, 2014



Water has started flowing down at the creek following a few days of nice weather.  Rain (snow if you live in Thunder Bay) is predicted for the next couple of days which should help the ice along…





Of course you can’t just sit around watching the ice melt.  Some cabin renovations are in progress and it appears there is a lot of work left to do!  The “gutted cabin 7”…


Ice out is coming!  Still thinking of a Spring fishing trip?  10% off on any trip in May.  Check it out!

  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……

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.
