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”
