Scott Stroupe, from the Twin Cities, has been a regular at Vermilion Bay Lodge for a number of years….always during the middle of June for an action packed 4 days of fishing Eagle Lake. This year a bigger group with the addition of several rookies………from L to R … Scott, Dean, Wade, Steve, Dave, John, Kerry and Craig (kneeling).
The fishing trip to Eagle Lake starts out rough…
Hwy 594 and the axle decides to break loose from Kerry’s trailer! This is bad luck, but fortunately no damage to the boat, or to anyone else! Call to the lodge and a rescue is facilitated. Now, if this was the middle of the night, full of mosquitoes, on some desolate stretch of nowhere…..
Some serious equipment comes into play………..
Thank you Bert’s……and driver Rocky!
The fishing trip to Eagle Lake is looking better now!
A nice touch…..launch the boat and trailer. The latter heads to the scrap yard….the former down the lake to the lodge….
…where fishing sombreros are donned and shopping bags poised. Nice outfit Craig! Let the fishing trip to Eagle Lake begin!
Scott, finally on the water! Will this trip have a happy end? Stayed tuned for Part 2 of the June fishing trip to Eagle Lake……..
