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

Remember the first time you went fishing and the thrill of that fish dancing at the end of your line? What is it about fishing that creates those family memories that will last a lifetime? Whether it was your grandfather, father, mother, a family friend – they took the opportunity to create these memories for you. Throughout the years these generations have been instrumental in giving you the passion you now have for this great sport and pastime. Now it’s your turn to fish with your children and grandchildren to give them the gift of memories that will be with them 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. This is a way to connect – at any age and we will help set the stage to develop the next generation- Generation Fish!

Upon check-in all youth (under 16 yrs.) will receive a registration package and a gift. Participants are asked to track the species and lengths of fish that they personally catch and release over the course of their stay. They will register their 5 largest fish (2 walleye, 2 pike , and 1 wild card) and the top three anglers who has the highest number of total inches at the end of the fishing season will be eligible for one of three top prizes. Everyone who participates in the program are entered into a draw to win a free trip in 2024.

Let’s go fishing kids!!!
