Junior Anglers 2017

Anderson’s Lodge – Home of GENERATION FISH – GENERATION NOW!

Remember the first time you went fishing and the thrill of that first fish dancing at the end of your line? What is it about fishing that creates family memories that last a lifetime? Whether it was your grandfather, father or mother, a family friend – they took the opportunity to create these memories for you. Through the years, these generations have been instrumental in giving you the passion you now have for this great sport and pastime.

Now it is your turn to fish with your children, and give them the gift of memories that will last forever. So strong is our commitment to ensure that every element of your fishing vacation comes off “perfect”, we have created a program specifically for the youth that visit Anderson’s Lodge – providing a positive experience that is challenging and exciting! This is a way to connect – at any age and we will help set the stage to develop the next generation – Generation Fish!

2017 was our 12th year for the program and all anglers 16 years and younger were encouraged to participate. Upon check in, all youth received registration information and a gift. Participants were asked to track the species and the length of fish that they personally caught over the course of their stay.

They registered their five largest fish (2 largest Pike, 2 largest Walleye and a wild card) and the top three anglers, who had the highest total number of inches at the end of the fishing season, were eligible for one of three top prizes consisting of tackle and equipment. All participants in the program were eligible for a draw to win a free trip for next year. Below are the results.
