Planning a summer trip to fish Eagle Lake. 

What resorts are recommended for a decent place to stay but more importantly their guide service ?

thanks in advance. 

Tight lines.

The guide took us to the big basin to the south and east the two days we were with him on Eagle.  That's where the numbers and size structure was the best.  We had two days on Eagle unguided and we fished Myers, Waldorf and Vermilion Bays and the islands in the area with the camp boat.  After making the 35-40 mile journey with the guide, I think that I could have found my way to the big basin and back but the camp boat only had a 50 hp motor so it would have taken us around an hour each way so we stayed closer to the lodge.  The fishing in the Myer's/Waldorf/Vermilion Bay areas was good but no where as good as in the big basin to the southeast.

BT, glad to hear it was a good trip. Did you guys generally fish the Vermilion bay area or did they take you south to the main area of the lake?

We're on our way home.  Caught a lot of fish.  We had two 100 fish-in the-boat days and one 150+ fish day which included 5 over the slot.  Dad had two 24's and I had a 26, 27 and a 30".  One of those days was for lake trout exclusively on a different lake.  All three days were guided through AML by the most awesome guide I've ever fished with.  Walleyes are in transition from spring to summer areas.  The walleye were moving daily but are setting up on humps coming out of deep water.  We also found fish in the shallower areas near new weed growth but the big fish were on the humps and deep rock structures.  Jig and Minnow caught 99% of fish including the trout which were still shallow (25-45 fow).  Color didn't seem to matter but we mainly used chartreuse or parrot pattern.  We did get some trolling firetiger spinner rigs tipped with Minnows and with Rattling Raps on the days that we were on our own.  We didn't have mayflies the whole week but had a bunch on the truck this morning when we left so they're just starting. If you need anything more specific, let me know. I can post more when I don't have to type with my thumbs.

Thanks. We don't leave till the 26th. Sounds like some lakes are low this year and was just wondering what it's like. Mother Nature is in control all we do is hold the fishing rod.

Just itichin to get up there.

I'll be there June 23rd to 30th. I can report when I get back and hopefully during. Not sure if that will help you or not. I know BugleTrout is there right now and will probably give an update when he gets back.

We are booked for their deluxe package and I spoke to Julian at the All Canada Show. It sounds like he's going to hook us up with a great time.  Hopefully that includes Danny for one of the days.  If not, I've also heard that their guides and pro staff are hard to beat so either way, I figure that we'll be in good hands. 

And as far as WIFI, the lodge has it but I should also be good in our cabin as my truck WIFI has a 35' radius.  I'll try to post a report or two. Otherwise shoot me a PM.

My guess is AML will have wifi for you. I will be checking in for updates as I'll be on Eagle June 23rd to the 30th. Can't wait for fresh Canadian air, hot walleye fish fry, and some rib bustin musky fishing.

BT, all the guides there are top notch, but keep your fingers crossed you get Danny guiding you for walleye. That kid can put you on some real nice schools.
