Hi Jackie and Jody - Just a quick word to say thanks for having us a couple of weeks ago, everyone had a great time! Attached are a few pictures.

Jackie & Jody - I have attached several pictures of my fishing trip last week to Anderson’s Lodge. I had one of the best vacations I have ever had in my life. I look forward to returning in the future. Thanks for all of the hospitality. You operate a first class operation.
See you next time,

Hi Jackie and Jody ~ thanks again for the great fishing and hospitality @ Anderson’s Lodge this year. The fishing was really great, and with walleyes it was “catching” and not “fishing”. We kept our guide really busy. The overall “outdoor” experience was what we have come to expect @ Anderson’s Lodge.
My grandkids really enjoyed the fish fry at our house again this year ......

Jody and Jackie, I wanted to let you know what a great time we had at the lodge this year. Aaron sure did make this trip special for us. He took such great care of every detail of the trip. The fishing was phenomenal, the shore lunches were delicious and the lodge food and accommodations were really top notch. Aaron is such a joy to spend time with and we so enjoy fishing with him. He was clearly focused on making sure we caught fish and had a great time. I have eaten in the finest restaurants around the world but my most favorite meal is a walleye shore lunch on Lac Seul.
Thanks for everything and we will see you again next year ......

Hi, Jackie and Jody. We’re once again home in NE Wisconsin. Ever since 1985, the year we visited Anderson’s Lodge, our fishing adventures have been spoiled by fishing on Lac Seul. Although we had a 31 year hiatus, we are happily enjoying our memories from Anderson’s. While the accommodations were perfect, complete with good food and many new recipes to gain, we were totally thrilled with the fishing guides we had. Our first 2 days were spent with Greg and we caught many fish and had 2 wonderful shore lunches with him. While my mind is about 35 years old, my body of 77 years made it hard to get in and out of the 16 foot boat, even with help from Greg and my husband Russ. We opted for the Bowrider boat and are forever spoiled for fishing accommodations. The Bowrider afforded us room to stand, walk around and be kept out of the inclement weather. Fishing was as good as expected with Russ catching a 38” Northern Pike. We had our fill of Walleye shore lunches (WHICH I THINK IS THE BEST MEAL IN THE WORLD). With our conservation licenses we were able to bring home enough fish to have a very large fish fry with our family.

The best part of the whole trip, for me was when we told our new guide Cecil, we wanted to fish for Northern Pike. He took us “somewhere- ‘cause it all looks alike to me”, and I was able to hook onto the largest fish I had ever seen. With Cecil’s soft-spoken coaching I was able to bring a monster fish to the boat. He skillfully netted the monster that turned out to be a 45” Northern Pike. Cecil estimated that it weighed probably 30#. THIS WAS THE THRILL OF A LIFETIME FOR THIS OLD GRAY-HAIRED LADY. I’ve relived this moment many times since we’ve been home and look forward to the day when we hope to repeat this vacation. Cheers to the entire staff, including you too, all the wait staff, etc. However, my favorite person of all during this time has to be Cecil. Not only did he loan me his favorite artificial bait, he coached me as was able to land this wonderful, huge fish. We released it so that perhaps someone else might experience this once-in-a lifetime dream come true.

Hi Jody and Jackie ~ just a note to let you guys know what an exceptional fishing trip I had at your lodge the week of August 21. I was one of the six member Stanmore group that stayed in cabin 6. I just wanted to drop a note to you guys and express to you what made my experience so memorable.

The accommodations were very clean, well-organized and comfortable. The food was excellent with plenty of variety for everyone’s pallet. The restaurant staff was always very polite, cheerful and ready to please. It is very refreshing to see people who like their job and like to be there.
Lastly and most importantly our trip was made by having, as I believe, one of your best guides Greg Attard. His passion for fishing coupled by his vast knowledge about the species and the techniques needed to be successful were second to none. He is truly a professional when it comes to guiding. In addition he has a congenial personality and is a sure friend in the boat.

To sum it up, I would return to Anderson’s Lodge in a heartbeat knowing that my trip would again be great with Greg as my guide.
I will be back and rest assure all my friends will be there as well.
Good fishing,

Dave J. Overy

Jackie, Jody ~ we had an awesome time with our stay at Anderson’s this year. Great food, great service, friendly staff, cabins were clean and spacious, great guide that is a lot of fun and the fishing was phenomenal! Shore lunch was excellent. Patrick Keating was excellent and passionate about his job and we want him for our guide next year! ...... We have also told many other families about Anderson’s Lodge and the great time we had. I know that our neighbors are going to book with you.
Thanks again!

Jody and crew – Thanks for the awesome fishing experience. This was our second time back to Tom’s Landing and it was great. We really enjoyed ourselves and will be back again......

Thanks again,

Just wanted to say THANKS for a terrific time at your Lodge last week! Your entire staff made our vacation “another” memory maker! The food was amazing, service... Top notch! Room very clean and take care of! As usual I’m sure the guides get all the cudos...... Josh was fantastic with our group, especially the young guy with us... Now he wants to be a Fishing Guide I Canada! Needless to say, the Musky that I caught (43 ½”) was THE fish of a lifetime! I think Josh was as excited as me and I was ecstatic! I caught him on a Bucktail lure that Josh had made! Please express our Thanks to Josh! ......Looking forward to seeing everyone again next year!!!

Good blessed and thank you again,

July 31, 2016 – "Kakebeka narrows Trip of a Lifetime"

After researching many fishing camps, I decided to purchase a fly in fishing trip for my husband's 50th birthday in January. An avid fisherman, I was looking for that special experience for him and fishing that he would remember forever. For months we looked forward to this trip and we were not disappointed!

Because I booked the trip in November of 2015, I emailed Jackie many times before our arrival and my emails were always answered promptly and professionally. She was constantly available to me to answer any question or give suggestions. Jody even created a special Happy 50th Birthday poster for me to present as a gift. It was also a valued convenience that I was able to email our grocery list to Jackie a week before for our arrival and we arrived to find our groceries packed up on the dock waiting for us in the morning.

We arrived at the dock already loving the beauty of the locale. The pilot of the float plane was friendly and helpful and the flight was an easy 15-20 mins from the lodge to the cabin. The scenery is breathtaking! We arrived at the cabin between 630 and 7am. On arrival, the pilot helped us unload our baggage. We were greeted by Kevin the caretaker who is knowledgeable about the area.

The cabin at Kakebeka Narrows is beautiful! It is tongue and groove pine throughout with a GREAT open concept plan and updated furniture and propane appliances. We were very pleased with the modern bathroom and shower, and even the outhouses were okay. The cabin has windows all along one side and is flooded with natural light. Even on the hottest of days, the cabin seems to be situated on such an angle to catch cool night breezes and we were comfortable for each of the three nights that we were there. This was the cleanest cabin that we have ever stayed in, and that includes the fishhouse, the bbq and the propane oven/stove. The grounds were well kept with pathways trimmed.

We have a Lund boat of our own, but because we flew in, we were pleased to find a 16ft Lund utility boat, very clean, gassed up and ready to go.

This trip has been described to me as "the best fishing of my life" by my spouse. On our last night there in the space of 2 1/2 hrs, he caught 35 walleye while I caught 17 walleye and a beautiful jumbo perch. We stopped only when we ran out of minnows! The walleye were all eating size and larger and had it not been our last night and getting late, we definitely would have had another fish fry. No sooner had we released the caught fish from the hook and cast out again then another fish was on. It was amazing. Also during our stay, I caught a 13lb pike at the same time that he caught close to the same size muskie. Those fish were caught within the first hour on our first day! The highlight of the trip was the 16lb pike that he caught on the last day.

Although we were warned ahead of time to bring lots of bug dope, we were very pleasantly surprised to find the bugs basically non-existent except for mosquitoes on the very last night. Even then, they only seemed bad down by the dock. We were fully prepared to be a feast for deerflies, horseflies and the like but in all honesty, never saw one much to our relief.

We are definitely planning our trip for next year and hopefully Anderson's will become an annual trek for us.

"Just Awesome" ~ June 22nd
We did a fly into the Pickerel Narrows facilities. Given the remote location in the wilderness the facilities are absolutely top notch. The boats are in beautiful shape and the natural surroundings ideal. The fishing is absolutely world-class! The packages are reasonably priced and there are no hidden fees. Jody and his team are excellent.

Good morning Jackie and Jody. Wow, what a great time had by all again. You guys do a great job. Hats off to you and your staff ! ......

...... I didn’t get the chance to personally thank you for being so persuasive at the All Canada show in convincing my son Mark and I to book our vacation at Anderson’s Lodge. We arrived with very high expectations and Anderson’s Lodge exceeded every one of those expectations.

Cecil was very patient with us and it made for a tremendous experience. I know that the weather was beyond your control, but we felt so very fortunate to have three unbelievably beautiful days of fishing.

We are seriously considering returning to Anderson’s next summer and we are trying to recruit a couple more people to join us and book a Bowrider package. ......Thanks again for an incredible vacation, and I hope to get back to you shortly on our plans for next summer.

Subject: First Canadian Walleye
Hats off to super guide Shawn for putting me on top of my first Canadian walleye. The walleye and bass we caught with Shawn were amazing for both their size and their fight. I’ve eaten fish all over the world but the freshly caught walleyes Shawn cooked for us over the camp fire were by far the best I have ever had. I just got back to California but I’m already looking forward to my next Anderson Lodge fishing vacation.
Best regards,

Please find a picture of my 37.5 inch Northern Pike I caught last week during our stay guided by Eric……..Being a first time visitor in the Moser party and Anderson’s Lodge, I thought your lodge and our room was perfect and very well managed.

Jody, Jackie, Mark, and all the folks at Anderson's Lodge! Thank you all once again for hosting our small group of buddies and making our visit better each time! You make it look so easy to put it all together, but we know it isn't. Therefore the effort must come from your heart, which makes it all that much better. And, I must tell you...... it is not just the three or four days that we spend with you that are such a pleasure...... it is actually the several weeks before-hand of anticipation, and then a month or so of fond memories (and the sharing of a few tall fish tales!) after we leave, that linger on. You folks are simply the best, and we miss you already. Have a great season and fish on!

We had a very good time and everything was perfect. We will be back again for fishing and a moose hunt.

I wanted to send these pictures along to give to Alan who once again was GREAT and perfect for our group. Once again having come up to Anderson’s for close to 30 years, I am never disappointed. This year with three rookies but close high school friends was no exception! With your leadership and now full ownership since 2012 you clearly are putting your stamp on many aspects and it shows. Although the fishing was a little tough this year, the camp experience, the staff and the food superseded all.

Dick Claydon

September 10th, 2015
We did it right the first time! The fishing is excellent. We caught walleye, pike, bass and a musky, all on Lac Seul. Our guide Rick and the rest of the staff couldn’t be better. The food was excellent too. We had a perfect vacation.

We had such an amazing experience on our trip there. One we will truly never forget. I had the pleasure of catching some beauties while there in July with our guide Josh. I've attached some of the pics at your request for the magazine. Thanks again.

Jeff Whitener

I received your package today and the book on History of the Goldfields of NW Ontario was truly unexpected. Being a bit of a history buff, I find it fascinating that there was so much going on back in the 30's in Hudson/Lac Seul as well as Red Lake. There was some substantial building and industry back in the day, and the fact that some of that is still visible on Lac Seul is really cool. (Technical term for blowing my socks off.) Jackie, this book will make coming up to see you and Jody even more like visiting family. I truly appreciate you thinking of me, and this will become one of my treasures. I doubt this can be found at Barnes and Noble so this is doubly special. I can hardly wait to share with Tom and Rob. 74 days and counting. Put in the order for some warm weather so there is no more ice for the opening week. Can you tell we are all looking forward to getting up to SL this year? Warmest Regards.

Nick Dicianni

Thanks again for your hospitality. Attached is a picture of the best of many, many, walleye caught from the beautiful Kakabeka outpost. It took me 45 years to get a 30” fish. I hope to see you next year.

Just wanted to thank you again for an amazing trip! Everything…I mean every single little thing was perfect. From the friendly staff to the incredibly clean cabin (number 1244 :)) to the great food, to the “tank” of a boat in the Bowrider, and our AWESOME guide Aaron- who worked so hard and always put us on fish, you two should be proud of the world class lodge that you run. We talked all the way home (12 hour drive) and could not find a single thing that we would change about our trip (Bowrider American Plan). Can’t wait until next year! We took over 220 pictures during our stay…hoping at least one or two of them make the 2016 brochure!! Thanks again, and very best regards.

Just wanted to tell our guide Aaron thanks again for making our fishing trip the best it could be! Hope you got the pics from Sherry, they are great! Also I want to thank you for taking the time with Logan as this was his first fishing trip like this and I had some doubts about bring him but you took care of that issue you now are a Hero to a 14 year boy in south Georgia. I also want to say thanks for putting us on those nice smallmouth and I am tickled to death with the master angler smallmouth! Hope the rest of your season goes as good as ours did and if we get back that way I will request you to be our guide. Thanks again!

We could have not been more pleased with the ENTIRE scope of what you provide to all your guests. The room was top notch, the food was beyond excellent, and most importantly, Marc could not have been a better fit for us. He really made it the trip to remember, and should be commended. I am in the healthcare business, and I understand customer service, and you guys deliver on all fronts and I will be passing that along to all my associates who fish. Thanks again.

Michael Rotolo

June 30th, 2015
First of all, we want to thank you and your staff for the awesome hospitality last week! We all had memorable experiences. On a special note, Dave McIntyre was our guide and he did a great job. Each day he put us on stacks of walleye that filled our stomachs at lunch - Mmmm ????. He also helped us catch a couple of trophy Northerns that we will never forget. Dave was a great match for our older boys too - they shared common interests and experiences that I’m sure increased their overall enjoyment. We had a great time. Thanks Dave!

July 10th, 2015
Good morning Jody and Jackie. First just wanted to say a big thank you for a fun filled vacation. From the service the meals and the guide service, everything was top notch! Thanks again. I attached a picture of Rochelle’s 25” Walleye and my 39” pike for your viewing pleasure. Hope to see you both again next year.

June 15th, 2015
Jackie, Jody and Aaron: I apologize for not writing sooner. But I must tell you all that my recent “Tuk” experience with my 14 year old grandson, Riley, was absolutely unforgettable. We had so much fun, lots of walleye with a stray northern or two- not to mention a few bass and perch, and best of all never-to-be forgotten memories. After our return to Wisconsin, Riley sent me a “thank you” note. In that note he wrote, among other things, “I hope to create as many good memories for my grandchildren as you have given me”. For a grandpa it does not get any better than that. Of all the years I have fished Anderson’s, 30 plus, this was without question the very best. Thank you all for helping to make this trip to Anderson’s so memorable. I am looking forward to seeing you all this September. See you all in a few weeks. Thanks again.

John Schmid

September 1st, 2015
I wanted to send an email to thank y'all again for a great fishing trip. I will be on a diet for the next month and a half to make up for last week. Thank you again.

Hello here is a pic of a 42" Pike caught from the dock at Tom's Landing last week of May. It was the best fishing of my life!! We hope to come back the same time next year.

Dave Hunt

May 31st, 2015
Sunday night we had the Lake Trout that we caught on Big Vermilion Lake during our trip to Anderson's Lodge in late May. I fixed them using cedar planks and they were still great tasting. In July I had our annual walleye and northern fish fry with several of our friends and family. As always it was a big hit with everyone. Please thank ALL the staff for another great trip. Looking forward to 2016. Of the dozens of pictures I took, I attached a couple that might be worthy of the brochure. Thanks.

Bob Anderson

August 30th, 2015
Good morning Jackie. We are back home, we spent a couple of days in Duluth after we left Sioux Lookout. We had a great trip and I want to thank you and the staff for a wonderful time. I will see you at the All Canada Show in January. Thanks again!

May 26th, 2014
Hi Jody and Jackie, I want to extend my sincere gratitude for the hospitality you showed myself and my father (Tom). We had a great time at Anderson's and enjoyed some great fishing. Dad was already bragging about the fish we caught to strangers during our flight home! Regarding Marc, he is an amazing guide and I couldn't be happier with the service he provided us. He is truly an asset to your organization and there are many lucky guests who will experience his excellent service over the months to follow. Thank you once again and we'll be in touch for the next trip! Regards,

Jackie and Jody, attached are a few pics from our recent fishing trip at wonderful Tom's Cabin (outpost). Don't ever change the name! Have a great season and thanks for all you do for us.

Tom Starck

Hi Jackie, I just wanted to express my appreciation for your efforts in getting me out of Pickerel Narrows during our recent fishing trip. The boat ride was wonderful, it was a very calm day and Cecil was a great driver. The new cabin at Pickerel Narrows and the fishing, were fabulous. We all caught many large fish, with more than enough under 18 inchers to eat. I hope you have a great year. Thank you again,

Geoff Gillon

June 12th, 2014
Jackie, another GREAT trip. Have to applaud you on an excellent job at Pickerel Narrows (outpost). And as always your service and attention to detail is unsurpassed. Wish I still lived in Sioux Lookout. Take care,

Hi, we were guests at your lodge from July 20th to 24th this year. We had a wonderful time fishing with your guide Marc. We were asked to send pictures of the big fish our party caught and released. Thanks again for a terrific time and I hope we can return in the future.

Mary Van Tassel

August 17th, 2014
Jackie and Jody, just a short note to let you know that we enjoyed our stay as usual. You and your staff went out of your way to make sure this happened. The fishing wasn't bad either. Looking forward to seeing you at the All Canada Show next year. Best wishes!

Dear Jody, thank you for a great fishing experience. The accommodations and fishing far exceeded our expectations. The professionalism of your staff was outstanding. Jackie and Kevin were very helpful in meeting our needs and requests. I would not hesitate to recommend your lodge to a friend or anyone for that matter. Hopefully we will be staying at your lodge in the near future. Thanks again.

I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had at Anderson's Lodge. You certainly lived up to the "Do It Right the 1st Time" and made us feel welcome and at home. You had wonderful accommodations, good food, drink, super fishing and fish of significant size. Your entire organization performed extremely well making everything easy for our group. Thanks for a special time and a memorable outing. Attached are a couple pictures that we took of Bob when he caught 27 inch walleye on our last Saturday morning. Just an example of the kind of fish in your lakes. Please provide the picture to Bob, he was a great guide. Thanks again to you and all your staff. P.S. We saw many Inukshuks on our way home and they will always remind us of a very special place - Anderson's Lodge.

Pat Vallely

The trip to Anderson's Tuktegweik Bay outpost was great as usual. This is the biggest pike I have caught up there. We also caught some very nice smallmouth. Thank you again for making our (The Oklahoma Crew) outing another great experience.

Just a quick note to tell you how grateful we are for such an amazing week at Anderson's!!! This trip is always so special for me because I get to spend a week with my husband, my dad and my brother. However, last year my daughter Caroline was able to join us. She loved it so much.... she returned again this year! We always catch plenty of fish, but this year we collected four Master Angler awards and patches! Truly incredible! The fish were big, beautiful and healthy. The slot limits ensure this. Anderson's really is the true "family fishing experience". From the main lodge, Foxy's, the staff, the accommodations and of course...the fish!! the memories we create each and every year are memories we carry with us forever in our hearts. We laugh, joke and cheer each other on...especially when we are waiting to see what we pull in the boat! Most of all, the memories my brother and I have of our father are priceless. There is a special memory around every corner and every island. Thank you for everything you do to make this trip so special for us! Much love and may blessings

Once again you and Jackie have outdone yourselves in making the best Canadian fishing experience BETTER than ever!!!!! The accommodations (housing, food, staff and guide service) are always top shelf. You and your staff make us feel that we are a part of the Anderson's Lodge family. Thank you. PS already looking forward to next year's trip.

My son E and I just wanted to say thank you for another great trip to Anderson's. Everything was perfect as usual. The service from everyone was outstanding and especially our guide Shawn. He makes it a great trip. I've attached a photo of one of the many big walleyes that E caught, this one happens to be his Master Angler. There's never a bad day at Anderson's! We always look forward to our next trip. Thanks for making it so memorable!

Thanks again for a great time this past week. All 8 men will talk about this for a long time. The fishing was great, and your staff are exceptional. From Pat Keating our guide, to all of your dining room and housekeeping staff, they all do a great job in making our visit one to look forward to. Your meals are above an beyond what most would expect on a fishing vacation. Keep up the good work and hope to see you next year!

Once again, our thanks for a wonderful time at your lodge. The food, the staff attitude and service could not have been better. The fishing was also up to the fantastic level of last year. Unfortunately, Judy didn't get her Masters in any fish category so we are going to have to come back again next year. Once again, many thanks to you and your staff. See you next June.

This year was our 4th trip to Anderson's Lodge. We look forward to this trip each year. Thanks to Patrick's (our guide) skill we caught larger fish this year including one Master Walleye. Another memorable fishing trip to a 1st class lodge, thank you.

Just wanted to take a moment and thank you and Jody for a wonderful time. My son, cousin, aunt and I all had a great time. Our guide Allan was first class and took care of us rookies like the pro he is. I just wish our pictures turned out as great as our trip did. It was such a great time for all of us that we are still calling each other and talking about it and what our future plans are. It was so nice to have dinner at the lodge every evening where the food was great. Thank you guys so much!!

As usual, the trip this year to Anderson's Lodge was a great experience. The accommodations, staff and fishing was memorable. This is an experience that I always talk about to everyone and always have a great time. Thank you, and hope to see you all again soon.

Just wanted to write and tell you how much our group enjoyed our trip to Anderson's. Everything was great, your cook did a wonderful job and the food was delicious. your restaurant staff was very engaging and ensured all of our needs were taken care of quickly and efficiently. The maid who cleaned our cabin did an impeccable job. Our guide Cecil worked extremely hard to make sure our fishing was a memorable occasion and it was. Every day we filled the boat with walleye. Even our last day when the wind got very bad, Cecil tried to get us to the top producing spot and realizing that the lake was getting too rough, he got us out of harm's way and still put us on fish in some more sheltered areas. Last but certainly not least was your approach to customer service, you and Jody genuinely care about your customers which was quite evident and much appreciated. It is nice to know as a customer that the money we spend at your lodge is not simply taken for granted. I will be in touch with you to plan next year's trip. Thanks for a great trip!

Thanks again for your hospitality on our trip last month. We had a great time, and I know my customers REALLY enjoyed themselves. They are already talking about next year's trip and bringing another grandson along. your staff was awesome and Marc was a great guide. Truly a trip of a lifetime for me. Looking forward to another trip! All the best!

Thank you so much for another fantastic experience at your lodge. My father and grandfather had been visiting your lodge for years until my grandfather needed to call it quits at the age of 82. He loved fishing there and I remember the joy in his voice and the happiness he felt after Here some pics from our trip I wanted to share... and I had the honor of receiving a Master Angler! Thanks again and enjoy the rest of your summer!

Thanks for a wonderful family vacation. This was my wife and kid's first time fishing. Our guide Cecil spoiled them!

Peter and I would just like to thank you for another fantastic time. Forrest was excellent and we were very fortunate to have each caught a special fish. We're looking forward to coming up again next year, we just have to figure out when. Thanks again!

Debbie & Peter Powell

July 3rd, 2014
First I must say that we had the time of our life. Mike's parents and my brother have both said that it was one of the best times for them too. Josh did an excellent job. He was so sweet and kind with my mother in-law, helping her with her fishing and also finding a spot for shore lunch where she could get in and out of the boat with ease. He wore a smile every day and made our trip a special family time. He probably thinks we were a bit crazy but we like to laugh at each other and at ourselves. Laughter and fishing are probably the best medicine in the world and we got plenty of both. The girls in the restaurant did an excellent job too.....especially noted Brittany, Amanda and Janelle. They were very friendly and went above and beyond. The cabin was always in excellent shape when we returned from a day of fishing. Couldn't be more pleased. Not sure about that secret weapon from Jody (just joking) but to leave Canada with 2 Master Anglers (mom's 28 inch and Mike's 30 inch) and the Apple Cake and Caramel Sauce recipe... I would say we did pretty well. I had so much fund that I was looking at my calendar on the drive home to book next year's trip. Thanks again for everything.

Jackie and Jody, thanks for your hospitality. You and your staff created the benchmark by which all our future Canadian trips will be judged. A special thanks to our guide Allan. He was absolutely terrific. Allan was absolutely committed to fishing success and enjoyment. He listened carefully to our fishing desires and developed a strategy to ensure we were consistently on the fish we were searching for: be it numbers of walleye, large walleye, pike or musky. My son caught his first and second musky too. His excitement when he caught these fish is indescribable. I also caught my personal best walleye and pike. And then there was shore lunch ... the high light of every day. Prepared to perfection. The rest of your staff was equally attentive. Please pass along our appreciation to all of them. We look forward to staying with you in the future.

Jackie & Jody, Teddy “Mooney” Abner, Shorty Langdon and Nordy Garrison all enjoyed our time with you all this year. No one joined the 50” Muskie Club, but Mooney caught a 47”, a 48” and a 49 ½” musky!

Nordy Garrison

Jackie, I just wanted to send you a picture of Jim’s 50 inch Muskie. Thanks again for a GREAT fishing trip.

Hi Jackie! Our fishing experience at your lodge last week could not have been scripted better! The skies parted for us – all 3 days – sunny and 70s. Our guide Shawn was top notch and great with the boys. The food was delicious. The cabin was perfect. But most importantly, we made fishermen out of my 12 and 11 year old sons! They loved the entire experience, including the shore lunch fish! . . . For me, fishing with my sons and father at a lodge that my Dad first took me to when I was their age – priceless! Thanks for the wonderful memories! In health,

Ken Breger

Jackie & Jody, I wanted to thank all of you for a fantastic trip in July. Your place, services and staff are top notch, which can only be accomplished with great management. Of course the overall beauty of the area is all God and Mother Nature’s doing but you guys do preserve it wonderfully. I did buy a fishing shirt that has the “Anderson’s Lodge” logo and wore it proudly home and got many questions about your place. Looks like several lodges in the area didn’t do near as well fishing that week as we did! Hope to see you all again soon.

Trina & Jay Moss

July 31st, 2013
Jackie & Jody, we have had another great year! Thank you for your hospitality and for creating a first class Canadian fishing experience. During our 5 days we had no less than 360 fish…including Roy’s Master Angler Pike. Many thanks to the entire staff. It is truly a team effort here and we appreciate it.

Roy & Rachel Downing

July 8th, 2013
Jackie and Jody, thank you once again for making our annual fishing trip to Anderson’s a memorable one. The guides found all the good fishing holes and were awesome building the lunchtime fire out of wet wood and cooking those spectacular shore lunches. Your dining staff was up to the challenge of serving a group of 19 guys and the nightly dinners were delicious as always. Jody and the girls served up some very good burgers on the last day. We hear nothing but good comments from those attending. Keep up the good work and see you next year.

Hi Jody and Jackie, we had a wonderful trip last week at Anderson’s Lodge! The fishing was some of the best we’ve ever had in our 10+ years of coming there. It was our first time with guide Marc and he was wonderful—he knew the lakes very well, took great care of us and worked his butt always putting us on big fish. He even lent us his precious “Williams Wabler” lures that did so well with the Northern Pike. The service at the lodge was great like always and the food was incredible. I think I gained 5 lbs. in my 4 days there!
Please tell everyone that we had a wonderful time and really appreciate all you did for us. We’ll be back again next year! Cheers!

Bill Moorman

June 24th, 2013
Hi Jackie and Jody, just a brief note to thank you for another outstanding trip to Anderson’s this year. Each one seems to get better! Our group of 6 caught over 750 Walleye and 5 Master Angler fish in 3 different species- 3 Smallmouth Bass that were all over 19 ¼”, a Walleye that was 27 5/8”, and a 40” Northern that was caught on a Walleye that was being reeled in. Wow! You run a first class facility from the food to the housekeeping and wait staff, the guides (kudos to Patrick and Greg for finding all those fish), as well as the office personnel. We appreciated everything and we’ll be back.

Don Ford

Jackie/Jody, thanks for a great vacation last week. Everything about Anderson’s, and our experience with you exceeded our expectations. Additionally our time on the water with our guide Ryan was fantastic! Our only complaint was the food was too good, and we gained weight enjoying it all. Attached are a few photos we took when we were there. If you want to use any of them for your promotional information, you are welcome to do so.

Hi Jackie, it seems like the first part of June was such a long time ago. Judy and I along with Diane and Brad Pederson had a great time at your lodge this year. I am saving my coins to be able to book again. I thought these two pictures of Judy and Diane with their fish might be good enough for next year’s brochure, but I am prejudice. Hope all is going well for you and you are enjoying your season. Thank you for a wonderful experience again this summer.

Dear Rick, we can not begin to tell you how much we appreciated everything you did for us and to make our FIRST Canada trip an absolute success. From day one in the rain catching a Master Angler walleye to Day 3 of mom catching walleye after walleye (49 that day alone!) we were having a blast. Although our meals at the Lodge were wonderful, our shore lunches (including the walleye wings) were divine. Our goal for this trip was to enjoy time with each other and catch some nice walleye. Instead, we not only had a great time with each other, we also caught lots of awesome fishing (not just walleye either) and met you, a wonderful guide, and someone we would call friend. Thank you again for guiding us and sharing your love of fishing, sense of adventure, and comic entertainment with us. This is an adventure we will never forget and you can count on the “fish tales” to grow over the years. Hope to see you again in the future and you helping Tanya catch the “30 incher”.

Dear Jody & Jackie, we just returned from a great trip to your lodge. This was a mother/son graduation trip as Michael heads off to University in a few weeks. I wanted to send a special thank you and appreciation to our guide Forrest. He taught my son a ton on how to fish for Northern Pike and Walleye. Michael caught the biggest fish of his life – 41.5 inch Northern Pike. Michael said it was the highlight of his summer. Nothing can replicate the passion that Forrest has for fishing and he didn’t lose his enthusiasm for one minute over our 3 days of fishing. He also had incredible patience with my lack of knowledge in casting (I think I almost hooked him and my son one or two times) and by the end of it, I felt like I was a pro. This is a trip that we will remember for a life time and Forrest absolutely made it that way!!!His shore lunches were incredible…we had fish everyday!! Next year we hope to be back and can’t imagine having any other guide than Forrest as he made the whole experience amazing! See you next year!

Jackie, just wanted to let you know that Jim and I could not be more pleased with our recent Moose Hunt with Anderson’s Lodge. It lived up to our expectations in every way.
It started a year ago with the initial planning. You were very helpful in helping us get ready for this adventure and realistic in what to expect. As a result, you helped us develop the right attitude to enjoy our vacation. Your assistance in setting up the admin and logistics for the trip was very helpful and contributed to a hassle free trip.
The cabin, boats and logistic support were better than what we expected. After hunting hard each day, the warm fire and dry cabin were greatly appreciated. After we got two moose in one day it quickly became apparent why we had a professional team to support us. Even the work was an experience and enjoyable.
Hats off to your staff. From the guide, dock hand and cook, we got the impression that they wanted us to be as successful as we did. In the full week I never heard a discouraging word, even in the wee hours of the morning dealing with a wet moose. Everyone met us with a smile each day and the overall vibes were always positive.
I have hunted in Germany, South Africa, Quebec and out West, and I have not experienced a more professional or positive outfitter. I took a bear with the bow with you about ten years ago and it too was a great experience.
Thanks for the great time and feel free to use me as a reference.

Greetings to all at Anderson’s Lodge, we wanted to thank you for a spectacular fishing trip this summer at Anderson’s Lodge. We celebrated the 50th wedding anniversary of Ken and Karen Long in grand style with wonderful days on the water, excitement of landing numerous walleye and northern pike, delicious shore lunches, and relaxing evenings at the lodge with the full moon overhead. We truly appreciated the expertise of Jeremy as he guided us on our adventure on Lac Seul. You have provided us with memories to treasure.

Dear Jackie and Jody, this is a note from the Baker Party from Ohio. We had a wonderful and successful fishing trip at Pickerel Narrows Outpost this past summer the first week of July. Our group landed 492 fish that week! Five of them were muskies. My daughter Beverly caught a 50 ¼” musky! We also caught several large pike and plenty of walleye. The fishing was great, and the bugs were also hungry, lol. We also saw 12 moose and 6 bears. This was our 10th trip in the past 12 years to Anderson’s Lodge and every trip has been great. The service provided is very professional and friendly. We look forward to another fishing trip at Anderson’s Lodge next year at your new camp at Pickerel Narrows. Thanks for a great vacation!

Dear Jackie and Jody, On behalf of Jim, Jared and myself, I would like to thank you and all the team at Anderson’s Lodge for making our trip so very memorable. When recounting the stories of our trip to others (as we have done so many times and will continue to do) there is a long list of things that standout.
Of course the fishing is #1 and Jared summed it up well when he said he caught his biggest walleye ever, his biggest pike ever and 2nd biggest bass ever all on day 1! We also have only good things to say about our guide. In Al, you not only have a genuine ambassador but he is also a good person!
Tied for #2 spot are all the other things, the spotless accommodation, the shore lunches, the meals in the dining room, the staff, the 5-star service, the info packages and all the many things that you folks do that made our time with you so pleasant. On top of that the scenery was spectacular! Needless to say, we are busy planning when we can come back. We are very pleased to have followed your advice, “Do It Right the First Time”. Please pass our appreciation on to all.

Hello I am Matthew Cotton. I spent a week on one of your outposts on Lac Seul. I enjoyed my stay and also enjoyed the many amazing features that Lac Seul has to offer. I was also a part of your Junior Angler program and would like to show you a few of the fish that I caught. ** See Junior Angler Page

Matthew Cotton

Jackie & Jody, never disappointed and always, always amazed at such a smooth running “machine”! Our crew with three rookies from Texas (they thought the cool weather and a little rain were a real treat) caught 75-80 walleye BEFORE lunch our second day. I thought the 42” Northern my last visit was a fish of a lifetime, but my new personal best of 42.5” and FAT topped that! Alan our guide and true gentleman served every need to a tee, which only personifies what Anderson’s is about. A bonus this year was meeting a real Anderson on your wait staff who was very proud to be the great granddaughter of the original Anderson’s! To our guide Alan, I have fished many places in my lifetime with many guided experiences—our three days with you and my 25 years coming to Anderson’s were truly the highlight! The walleye wings were an added treat! Until the next time!

Dear Jody and Jackie, Tim and I want to greatly thank you and your staff, especially Tim—our fishing guide, for a WONDERFUL trip to Ontario. We truly enjoyed our stay and experience with Anderson’s Lodge. The lodging, meals, fishing adventures (which included seeing and hearing wolves, bear, moose, eagles, and many loons), and scenery were beyond our expectations. Lastly, we thank all of you for your friendliness and care. We’ll be back! Take care.

August 24th, 2013
Jackie & Jody, another THANK YOU! Since driving off the property yesterday morning, we’ve been talking of nothing but you and your fine facility. I have been to similar places and, until now, never came away with the good feeling I did this time. God willing, I (we) WILL be back. We are leaning toward sometime around Memorial Day next year. We will try to make a decision soon so as not to be too late to get a reservation. Again, thank you very much. I was VERY impressed!!!

Phil Hiser (Jon & Duncan McIntyre)

Jackie & Jody - I wanted to write to say thank you. The trip this year again was a great time despite the weather. The food was incredible and the servers were the best. This was the first time we stayed at the base camp and I want to compliment you on the cabins and room service. It seems everything you do is 1st class. Forest did a great job putting us on the fish and preparing shore lunches under some pretty adverse weather conditions. We enjoyed talking to him and learning some native customs. This was the first trip I didn't have to touch a fish. By the time it was in the net he had it in the cooler or back in the water Thank him again for us! Finally, I want to express our appreciation to Anderson's for providing many life long memories and great stories. We've fished with you for 5 years and we've never been disappointed. If you ever need a referral in the Chicagoland area, just have them call me. Have a great winter... Thanks!

Guys, just wanted to thank you for another amazing week of fishing in the remote waters of Lac Seul. Jake and I had a wonderful time and created more memories that we will never forget. The fishing was outstanding, probably best we have had in the nine years we have been coming up there. I have a couple pictures I am attaching to this email from last week. Thanks again.

Hi Jody and Jackie! I hope you’re well, and that the season continues to be a good one for you. We had a terrific time staying with you this year (which was our first time to the lodge). Our guide Al was terrific – professional, skilled, hard-working, a great teacher and just generally a really nice guy. The service provided was excellent – extra things we needed and special requests were accommodated where possible, with a smile. The food was too good (all of us gained some extra pounds). Attached are a few photos from the trip – for what Al said was an “average to slow” week (due to the hot and sunny weather) we sure did well with dozens of fish each day, and some nice size. We look forward to seeing you next time, and Ben and Nathan look forward to seeing the junior angler results for 2012! Best regards.

Hi Jody, every year we have memories of the trip. This has been 12 years now coming to Anderson’s Lodge. Enjoy and always look forward to the next year. Sending a picture of the walleye that I got with an ultra light rod and 6# line. That is what it’s all about. Take care, best regards to all.

Jackie, we enjoyed our trip to your place a lot and hopefully it is something we can do again…Thanks again – your whole staff was great, the food was awesome, the shore lunches unbelievable, and the guide was outstanding. With only 2 of us in the boat, we knew the key to a good time would be the guide and Bob was great. Thanks again – hopefully I can get up there soon and catch that monster that keeps appearing in my dreams every night since we left.

Jody and Jackie, this is a picture of my son Jake Palmer, with his 41.75” pike he caught on 8/26/12…Jake is 13 years old from Lake Ann Michigan. This was his first time up there (I’ve been coming up with the Yohe’s for 12 years) and he was totally pumped by the walleye fishing and this gorgeous pike. Take care!

Dear Jackie and Jody, this being our first time as guests at Anderson’s Lodge we were not sure what to expect but knew it was a top notch run fishing lodge. Our experience was amazing and we would like to say thanks so much for making our 1st trip a memorable one. All the staff members we came in contact with were very professional and provided excellent service. The food served in the dining room both at breakfast and dinner was superb and we were pleased with the variety of choices on the menu. A special thank you to our skilled fishing guide Alan Bond who was very professional, kind and patient with us and our grandchildren. The shore lunches he served were awesome. From start to finish we were very happy with our vacation and time spent at Anderson’s Lodge.

Thank you and thank our guide Forrest again for a wonderful trip. From Ontario’s version of island hopping, shore lunch, time for reflection, and the excitement of the Masters we are tired but very happy. Your lodge is more than a bucket list item, it is an experience to capture again!

Great Time! Hi Jackie, Just wanted to let you know what a great time I had fishing and staying at your lodge. The meals and cabins were better than advertised. Our guide was fantastic and put us on a lot of fish. Please thank the staff for giving me the fishing trip of a life time.

Hugh Barton

Hello, my husband Pat Wilder asked that I forward these great pictures of our son Griffin to you. He caught this fish on July 17th, 2012 while staying at your lodge. The dimensions were 42.5” in length and 27” girth…! Unfortunately, only Griffin’s brother Luke and your guide Shawn were witness to it! His dad Pat and his great grand-father, Marty Angevine were back at the lodge. Needless to say, they had a wonderful trip and created GREAT memories. Thank you for such a great trip!!

Paula Wilder

Jackie, Jody and the entire Anderson’s Staff — We have once again been overwhelmed by the hospitality and first rate fishing experience we were treated to at Anderson’s.

Thanks! Jody and Jackie, I just wanted to take a minute and thank you both for everything last week! We expected a good trip…and you guys came through! I believe the next time I’ll be with three or so other guys and would be interested in one of the fly-in outposts, but I will let you know. Have a great rest of the Summer!

Hello, I just wanted to say thank you again for the outstanding fishing trip you provided for my son and I. The facilities, food, and service were excellent. Forrest is an excellent guide and was simply amazing with my son and taught him several tips for better fishing. You can tell he loves his job and he works very hard to get you on the action constantly. Forrest suggested I attach a couple of photos for you which I have done. I do hope to rebook for next year and will be in touch once I have my work schedule for next year finalized. I really wanted to have a father/son trip like I remembered having with my father and you and your staff completely exceeded my expectations and made some wonderful memories for us. Thank you so much for everything.

Hi Jackie and Jody. I just saw the nice article by John Merwin in the August Issue of Field and Stream. It’s great they picked Anderson’s for their trip, should be good for business…. We sure had a good time this year. The big Musky was a great way to wrap up our final day. Jeremy did a good job for us and we caught a lot of fish. See you again, I’m sure. Maybe next year (if Mary forgets I told her she could decide what to do next summer).

Mike Barber

June 13th, 2012
Jackie & Jody, I would like to thank you again for another fantastic trip. My friends that I brought up this year could not stop telling me how this was a trip of a lifetime and they can’t wait until next June. Your dining staff were as always very pleasant and could not do enough for you. Our guide Dean, if it’s in the cards he would be a great addition to the Anderson's family. Best regards!

Jamie Robertson

June 14th, 2012
Hi Jackie & Jody, I want to just say many thanks for a wonderful weekend. The fishing was great on Saturday, then all hell broke loose with the weather. But all in all the guides did a great job trying to find us fish on Sunday and Monday. It was a lot of fun. This was the first time for my brother and his son and I can assure you this won’t be the last time for them. It was far greater than they had ever imagined. Thanks for all you and your staff do. It’s with class and perfection and you all should be proud. Hope to see you in 2013. Have a super summer. Thanks.

Tim Lockwood

June 14th, 2012
A Big Thank-you! Hi Jackie and Jody, Bill Hill from Jamie Robertson's group dropping a line, it was my second time at Anderson's and it was another great time, meals were excellent, staff was excellent, the fishing and our guide was excellent, he managed the boat in some of the roughest water I have ever been in on that lake and we did not get soaked to the bone, Dean Thomas is an asset for sure (can we get him next year if available?) Shore lunches were amazing and we enjoyed ourselves to the fullest, we all can’t wait til’ next year, thank you and have a wonderful summer.

Thank you once again for a wonderful stay at your lodge. I have been coming here for six years and this year decided to bring 8 family members. A few have been to Canada several times and the rest have not, but we all agreed it was one of the best trips we have ever had. We caught 7 walleyes over 25” with 2 masters, along with some large northern pike and a 54 ¾” musky. The food was incredible; the rooms were luxurious and as always nothing better than fresh walleyes for lunch. Your service and hospitality are much appreciated and second to none. Patrick Keating, once again, was a tremendous guide, he worked very hard, has a great personality and cares deeply about your success. In the last 3 years with Pat I have caught two 50 plus inch muskies along with dozens more walleyes and large pike. Can’t wait to see you next year. Take Care

Jackie & Jody, Thank you for providing an outstanding fishing, dining and lodging experience. I can’t begin to tell you how impressed I was with your professional staff and great service. We greatly appreciated our boat upgrade on our first and last days at the lodge and the courteous service provided by Aaron. We do look forward to seeing you again. Thank you.

Great Trip! I would like to take the time to express my thanks to the entire staff at Anderson’s Lodge for a great and memorable vacation. From our arrival til’ our departure, the service was outstanding. My dad John Wyatt, my son Braden Wyatt and myself enjoyed the food, fishing and scenery. A special thanks for our guide, Forrest. He worked very hard to see that we caught all of the fish that we could. I am sending you some pictures. Picture number one is of a 35.5” Northern Pike caught by Braden. Picture 2 is of a 24” Walleye caught by myself; picture 3 is of an 18.5” Smallmouth Bass caught by my dad John. Picture 4 is of a male loon protecting his mate and her nest on Little Vermilion. Again, thank you so much for the great trip!

I can hardly believe it has been a week since we got home! After missing the past two years…. We needed this trip more than ever! It was so great to see you and Jody again!

We had an amazing week. This trip is so special for all of us, but especially for me. I get one solid week with my three favorite guys in the whole world… my dad, my brother and my husband. I could not ask for anything more.

So… I said this was my year to make the paper and …. I caught a 28 inch Walleye! He was HUGE (purple jig). My husband Randy also qualified with a monster … 44 inches of Northern Pike. The whole week was full of funny stories and memories ………The slot limit is working. These fish are big and healthy. We caught several Smallmouth…. nice fish. Dad always catches monster Northern … even when he is not trying. Kevin and Andre are very nice and obviously love being a part of the team. The camp looks better than ever.

We are already counting the “sleeps” until next year! The only thing that would have made this trip even better… if my Dad had qualified for a Master Angler, but I must admit, seeing his smile when I pulled in that monster Walleye….was pretty special and something I will never forget…. ever. Thank you Dad… from all three of us for such a fantastic and memorable week! We love you!

Much love and many blessings!

Jackie, Jody, Dick:

Just a short note to let you know that the enjoyment I get from Anderson’s Lodge continues long after the trip in May/June. Last Friday night I had a fish fry with some friends using the walleyes and northern we caught this year on Lac Seul. I have included some pictures including my twin granddaughters who I hope to get to Andersons someday. Thanks for the great fishing and your hospitality. See you in 2012!

Bob Anderson

Hello Jackie and Jody,

We had agreat time fishing up there last week! Attached is the picture of the Northern Pike I caught for the Master Angler award. It was awesome! Hope to see you again! Hopefully it will make your Brochure for next year!......

I just wanted to send a few pictures from our trip this past weekend. The three generations of Collin’s had a great time fishing. Again, Tim was a fine guide and placed us on a ton of fish…….We hope to see you next year with a few more guests. Several of my friends have caught wind of our luck at Anderson’s.

Thanks again,

Roger Collins

Jackie – thanks for taking such good care of Rich and Rodney. Some of my best memories of them, is meeting them at the airport after the trip. They are so tired, but they light up and get bright eyed when they start telling me about their adventures. Some of the best things in life are old friends and making new ones,
Thanks again,


Dear Jackie, Jody, Bob and Staff:

Thank you for another fantastic year, everything was wonderful as always. The week I spend at Anderson’s Lodge is always my favorite week of the year. Looking forward to seeing you in 2012.

Hi Jackie,

Just wanted to let you know what a great time I had fishing and staying at your lodge. The meals and cabins were better than advertised. Our guide was fantastic and put us on a lot of fish. Please thank the staff for giving me the fishing trip of a life time.

Warm regards,

Jody and Jackie:

Thanks again for taking such great care of us ...... We all had a GREAT time. Our goal was to make sure Spencer (who absolutely loves to fish) have a great time…...and he sure did. When we got home he was immediately wanting to figure out how to get back up there. Hope you guys have a great and successful season.

Dear Anderson’s Lodge,

Thank you for the free trip up to Lac Seul. I feel so lucky when I saw that I won, it was like winning the lottery because fishing is the world to me. When I went up to our cabin from the plane, it felt like home again, even though it was only my third time being up there. I caught Walleye after Walleye and Pike after Pike and saw so many amazing things. I hope to come back up every year as long as I live. I love fishing. I love Anderson’s Lodge!

Hi Jackie, Joy and staff,

Once again Anderson’s Lodge and their staff exceeded our expectations. On our recent 10th annual trip your staff went over and above to accommodate our group and make everything run smoothly. Presenting the fishing rods as a memento of our 10th trip was a very nice gesture. The guys from our group will be talking about it until next year when we come up again. Of course the fishing on Lac Seul and surrounding lakes was fantastic as it always is……….Thank you to your staff for their efforts and to you Jackie and Jody. See you next year.

Attached are some pictures of the fish we caught during our stay at Anderson’s. The Northern I caught was 42” long and the one my dad caught was 39 ½ “ long.

We had a great time and hope to come back again.

Jackie, Jody, Shawn and the entire crew and Staff,

I wanted to thank you once again for our best fishing trip ever. After six straight years, you somehow manage to make each year better than the last. Jay and I always say, how can we top last year? Somehow you and your staff always do just that and always make our trip more enjoyable than the year before. We learn more, explore more and it’s just pure fun.

This year was an especially great time because we got to share 4 days of wonderful fishing with our dear friends from Florida, Theus and his daughter Tonya. As first-time Anderson lodgers, they were just thrilled with the entire Anderson’s Lodge experience. I think and hope they will be back next year, and of course Jay and I will be. As always, our guide Shawn is the best and we could not ask for a harder working guide who knows how to find the big ones and fortunately some little ones for us to take home. Jay managed to get master anglers for walleye and pike on the same day! Tonya was the walleye queen as a first-timer on day 1. Our cabin was great and your lodge menu continues to excel, but nothing tops the shore lunch of our mornings catch. It was a beautiful experience for us all. Please enjoy these pictures of our fun moments. See you in 2012!

Your Most Grateful Lodgers,

Melodie and Jay

Jackie and Jody,

I want to personally thank you for all that you and your team did to make our recent stay and accompanying fishing experience truly memorable. From Joel and Forrest as our guides, to Katie and Stefan in the dining room, it was first class (and oh yes… that person pouring the Goldshlager).

“Uncle Doug” holds such a special place in my families heart; for Katie and Quinn to experience 5 days fishing and having fun with him is a memory we will never forget. As soon as we get our pictures developed, I will send some your way to memorialize our terrific time together!

Best Regards,

Jim Crockford

Hi Jackie and Jody,

Well, - back at home and finally settled back into the groove. I am already missing the fishing! I must say Thank you, to you and all the staff, especially Kevin and Andre at the outpost. They were very helpful and welcoming from the moment we stepped off the float plane. We had planned the trip of a lifetime and my dreams came true! I have attached some of my favourite pictures, including the 40” Pike that was caught and released just around the corner from our Outpost at Kakebeka Narrows. Although we were targeting the famous Musky of Lac Seul, I was very impressed at the quantity and size of the Northern Pike we were finding. It was an excellent time and hope to see you again soon for another trip.

Dear Jackie and Jody:

We stayed with you August 22nd thru the 26th, 2011. Just wanted to drop you a line to thank the people we saw every day. You two, our guide Jeremy, all the people in the dining room to all the people we never saw, like the people that cleaned our cabin and loaded our boats with shore lunch necessities, and gas every day. Everything was done first class.
We had a ball and enjoyed the 4 days without a television set, fishing and sitting on either the deck of our cabin or on the dock after dinner. You also went out of your way to find us a hotel room in Fort Frances when we couldn’t find any in International Falls because of a fishing tournament having them all booked. The view out of our hotel room was awesome by the way!
Jeremy was an outstanding guide and cook …………and of course Cindy will never forget the 36 inch Pike she caught. So once again, thanks for a great vacation and we are looking forward to doing it again someday!!

Jody and Jackie,

On behalf of the guys from Mount Albert HHBC, I just wanted to take a quick minute to thank you guys and compliment you on the wonderful job you do for us. We wait for this trip each year and Anderson’s never fails to impress. From the Service, the accommodation, the food ... and of course ... the fishing, it is always top notch.
Also I would just like to add that both Shawn and Rick were just plain awesome! As usual.
See you next year,

Chris Janes

Jackie & Jody,

I wanted to thank you for making our trip to Anderson’s Lodge so enjoyable. As I may have told you, I went to Sioux Lookout as a kid with my Dad and Grandfather. That trip provided me with life long memories and I wanted my wife and boys to experience the same and see what I had been talking about for all these years. I couldn’t have picked a better place to give them the experiences and new memories. The facilities, food, service and equipment were 1st class. Most of all, our guide made the trip. He put us on the fish every day and we all caught big ones. I couldn’t believe that we had our limit of walleye by noon the 1st day. And that made the shore lunch a memorable taste treat. This trip had been on my bucket list for years and couldn’t have turned out better.
Thank you,

Rick, Kathy, Chris & Josh

We wish to thank the staff of Anderson’s for a wonderful 17th year.

Hi Jackie and Jody

I just wanted to let you that, once again, we had an exceptionally fantastic time at the lodge - my second year and the fifth for Dave (Stevenson) and Rick (Lessard). The level of service you provide is excellent. We’re already looking forward to the next year! I caught the biggest fish by the way.
