When the whales of November came early…

Hello friends of “the goat”…a local VBay variety that seems curious about the goings on around town. Well, let me tell you all about it…

On the horizon a winter storm looms…

Yes, this super mild fall we’ve been having is coming to a crashing close in the next few days. Rain, snow, wind and cold temperatures. I guess it’s about time but before it gets here let me tell you about the past few weeks. Fishing has been great!

The walleye bite has been terrific…maybe not a whale, but too big to keep!
Some fine dining opportunities!
In the “walleye hole” some unexpected company…post season lakers!
Maybe next year!
Same spot, next day…
Just a different angler…
…but it was the walleye we were interested in.
Unfortunately, this musky didn’t get the memo.
When was the last time we visited the swimming point on November 7th with this kind of weather?
…and we were even lucky enough to pick up dinner on the way home!
Sunrise at VBL on a balmy November 2021…a touch of frost.

Fellas, it’s been good t’know ya…

…we’ll meet again next season. Till then, take care and stay warm!

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.
