Renowned for its world-class fishing, Ontario is an angling mecca. And Andy Myers Lodge in Vermilion Bay is no exception.
Overlooking the fish-filled waters of famous Eagle Lake, this rustic angler’s oasis offers a wealth of fishing expertise that leaves traditional resorts in its wake. Absorb the waterside wisdom of resort owner and fishing aficionado Steve Herbeck, who - along with his crack team of local guides and professional instructors - will do everything possible to help you write a chapter in your big fish tale.
So devoted are Herbeck and his staff that their fishing instruction program includes an optional seminar, during which they discuss everything from map marking and daily lake conditions to various fishing techniques and successful patterns. In the morning, plot out your plan of attack with a daily weather report over a hearty breakfast. At night, participate in a roundtable conversation with your fellow fishermen while sipping on ice-cold refreshments.
Apply your lesson to the lake, where an expertly guided excursion is sure to yield a boatload of fish and memories. With more than 200 years of cummulative Eagle Lake experience, the professional guides are more than willing to share their hot-spot secrets.
And it’s not just Eagle Lake that’s teeming with trophy fish. Experience a change of pace and a change of place with a mid-week fly-in to a remote lake of your choosing. Soar over 30 to 70 miles of idyllic Canadian countryside before arriving at your very own fishing sanctuary, equipped with tackle, boats, and detailed maps.
For a more grounded approach, embark on the Guided Four-Wheel Safari, an off-roading excursion through breathtaking Bush Country that culminates in an unforgettable angling adventure on a seldom-fished lake.
If it’s onsite seclusion you seek, book a trip anytime from the May 18th opener through early June. During this time, the crowds are sparse but the fish are plentiful. Battle smallmouth bass and pike in the weed beds, lure lake trout into the shallows, wrangle the oft-biting and always-fighting walleye population, and clash with monstrous muskie.
But it’s not just fish that will be hooked on this resort. Anglers will adore the American Plan Packages, which offer a cavalcade of customizable options that include personal seminars, optional guide services, state-of-the-art fishing equipment, upgradable boats, home-cooked meals, and maid services. Or, if you’re a “roughing-it” purist, fry up your own fish and even tidy up your own room.
Tailored to fit all your fishing needs and more, Andy Myers Lodge leaves you with just one decision to make: where to mount that trophy catch!
