Anderson’s Master Angler Entries 2016

Anderson’s Lodge will “Show YOU the Trophy Fish”

Anderson’s Canadian Fishing Lodge provides you with the best opportunity to catch a trophy fish that qualifies for the Sioux Lookout District Master Angler Program. Again in 2016, Anderson’s lodge guests were the top producers of Master Angler awards in the Sioux Lookout, Ontario District. There’s no two ways about it, your chances for catching a trophy fish are better with us than with any other fishing lodge in the area.

Released big fish produce more and bigger fish. The Sioux Lookout District Master Angler Program has been in place for 22 years now and the trophy fishery has been growing in population since its inception. By releasing trophy fish, you will improve your chances of catching another Master the next time you fish the area waters. This program guarantees both healthy numbers in the fish population and the opportunity at large numbers of quality fish for your world class angling experience.

When you register in the Master Angler Program you will receive a crest to recognize you for your efforts, which you can display proudly to impress your friends and infuriate your rivals. Anderson’s Lodge will pay your registration fee – no money out of your pocket! Your name will be listed in the annual Master Angler Report to guarantee you bragging rights – watch for it early in 2017.

Unlike other Canadian Fishing Lodges, we fish on 9 different lakes for 5 species WITHOUT HAVING TO PORTAGE! We access these 9 lakes from four different landings to put you on the fish faster, without having to “lug” your gear over those extremely rough bush trails. The 9 lakes we fish are Lac Seul, Minnitaki, Abram Lake, Pelican Lake, Big Vermilion Lake, Little Vermilion Lake and 3 small lakes connected to Little Vermilion Lake that were previously sanctuary lakes, Cedarbough, Maskinonge, and Hooch Lakes. Each individual lake produces trophy fish of at least two species.

Fishing with Anderson’s Lodge increases the probability that you will be a Sioux Lookout District Master Angler!

Qualifying Fish Lengths
Walleye 27.5″
Northern Pike 40″
Smallmouth Bass 19″
Muskie 44″
Lake Trout 30″

2016 Master Angler List

Trophy Walleye

Trophy Walleye Fishing: Lac Seul is the top producing trophy Walleye lake in our area and is rated as one of the top three Walleye fisheries in Ontario, but we also fish Minnitaki Lake for trophy walleye. We also walleye fish on Abram and Pelican Lakes, and while trophy walleyes are possible, these lakes tend not to be as productive as Lac Seul and Minnitaki Lakes, because of the superb structure and spawning areas they have. Also, our Lac Seul Fly-in Outposts, on the northeast end of Lac Seul, are in the heart of some of the best trophy Walleye fishing Lac Seul has to offer!

Trophy Smallmouth Bass

Trophy Smallmouth Bass Fishing: Like the Northern Pike fishing, all the lakes we fish hold good populations of Smallmouth Bass and the opportunity to catch a trophy Smallmouth Bass is tremendous on any one of the lakes. Our office staff and guides will help you make your decision as to which lake you want to fish for trophy Smallmouth Bass depending on what other species you would like to fish for that day and what time of year it is.

Trophy Northern Pike

Trophy Northern Pike Fishing: Lac Seul, Minnitaki, Abram and Pelican Lakes all produce trophy Northern Pike fishing. Most of our trophy Northern Pike do come from Lac Seul due to the fact that Lac Seul is a larger body of water and we fish it more extensivly than some of the other lakes because of the tremendous trophy Walleye fishing opportunities. All 9 lakes we fish have very good Northern Pike populations. Like our Lac Seul Walleye fishing, many of our trophy Northern Pike are caught by guests staying in our Lac Seul Fly-in Outposts. Our Tully Lake Outpost offers you spectacular Northern Pike fishing where catching 50-75 Northern Pike (per fisherman) in one day is not uncommon.

Trophy Muskellunge

Trophy Muskellunge Fishing: Most of the lakes we fish have Muskies in them but we will target Lac Seul for the Trophy Muskie Fishing. Lac Seul is home of some of the largest Silver Muskies in Ontario and it is not uncommon to catch a big Tiger Muskie as well. If you’re more for Muskie action with a greater rate of success catching this elusive fighter, you can fish Big Vermilion Lake, Little Vermilion Lake, Cedarbough, Maskinonge, and Hooch Lakes where they are typically not as big as a Lac Seul Muskie but with higher populations on smaller lakes, your success rate will be higher. These smaller lakes also have higher populations of Tiger Muskies. We also have groups that stay at our Lac Seul Fly-in Outposts that do trophy Muskie fishing, and they do very well!

Trophy Lake Trout

Trophy Lake Trout Fishing: We fish two different lakes for Lake Trout from our base camp. The trophy Lake Trout lake in our area is Minnitaki Lake. Minnitaki produces Trophy Lake Trout up to 40+ lbs. We also fish Big Vermilion for Lake Trout. The size of the fish are not as large as Minnitaki but the fishing is more consistent where catches of 3 to 20 fish per person, per day are common. You can also enjoy tremendous Lake Trout fishing at our Tully Lake Fly-in Outpost with large numbers of fish possible!
