Vern "Andy" Anderson passes away, 10-11-09

I am sad to report that my father-in-law Vern “Andy” Anderson passed away today. I’m glad he was able to make two trips up to VBL in the last few years of his 75 years. He spoke warmly about the memories of fishing with Gord, having lunch with the Mitchells in their cottage, and most of all…fishing with his grandson’s Shawn, Kyle, and Patrick. Of course, in order to enjoy that, he had to put up with his 2 son-in-laws.
Vern was an amazing father, son, husband, and grandfather. He loved the outdoors and taught me a lot about hunting in fishing in the 33 years that I knew him.
If you have been thinking about taking someone dear to you to VBL lodge the last few years….do it soon. Life is too short.

  1. Andy……very sorry to hear that Vern has passed on. He was a good guy and I enjoyed having him visit us at the lodge. I remember him as having a good sense of humour, being soft spoken and layed back…..and enjoying his fishing trips with his grandsons, and son-in-law. Gone but not forgotten….my condolences to the family.

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.
