You know you’re having a bad day when….



You come back to camp with this……….

Well, it wasn’t all bad.   A nice sunset over VBL.

        1. Dr. Bastable,
          I once knew a doctor in Grantsburg, Wisconsin who had a whole wall of musky lures hanging in his office. They were the baits that he had removed from patients over the years that donated their lure to the wall of shame. I think you should do the same in the fish house? There is also a discussion on this topic right now on Walleye Central (fish hook in the face).

  1. Red skies at night, fisherman’s fright?
    Red skies at night, blood in sight?
    It’s time for everyone to check out the movie “Blood Hook” filmed in Hayward Wisconsin. It’s a story about a guy named Gord, who kills Anglers with musky baits during “Musky Madness” and then puts them on a stringer at the end of the dock. See the trailer:
    Or the whole movie on Youtube (skip ahead to the 2:40 mark):
    Gord, you should probably have a movie night as part of next year’s Musky Madness week?

  2. We gave the Robs some live bait before we left camp. It looks like they graduatedto to big boy lures. Rumor has it that they were seen running around camp with scissors as well.

On behalf of the Boyes Group, I would like to pass on our sincere thanks for hosting the Muskie Madness Week and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at VBL and had a great time!! This was our 7th year on Eagle Lake and we have stayed at a few other lodges but VBL takes the cake hands down! You can definitely count us in for next year. I’m happy to see you post some of my pics, they turned out well. Thanks again Gord for a wonderful week of fishing and your stellar hospitality, you run a first class operation, we look forward to seeing you next year!
