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”

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.
