What a day!

Gord never likes to set the bar too high for guests, but the truth of the matter is that fishing can sometimes be phenomenal at Vermilion Bay Lodge. Of course its not like this all of the time. However, on this particular day, 8-22-13, my son Shawn and I headed out specifically to catch a huge walleye. Of course we picked a bright sunny day with absolutely no “walleye chop”. And on that particular day I was fortunate to catch a 28″ walleye, followed by a 33″ walleye, followed by a 27″ walleye by Shawn (Gord took editorial license in the previous post). Shawn also lost another walleye in this same range of 27″-33″. Just to prove that this doesn’t happen every day, we took Gord back to the spot the very next day…..nothing. Here folks is “Walleye….the movie”

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.
