"Thanks for your great hospitality and world class fishing. I have had the opportunity to experience a few lodges in the past few years, and Island Lake ranks at the very top. The fishing is world class... we were catching and releasing sometimes over 150 walleye a day between the 4 of us. We also landed some giant Northerns, including a number in the 10-20 lb range, and one that was 25 lbs. The Cabins are always spotless, the appliances work, and the boats and motors are always ready to go. Coupled with the fact that Jim is always there to give a helping hand; it makes for a memorable experience. We had 2 guys with us who had never fished before, and they are now hooked. We will be booking again soon for our 4th time up."
  -- Thanks again! Jay Kemp - Edmonton

"Bob and I had a great time at Island Lake. I caught 120 fish and Bob caught 90. WoW! The weather was beautiful and, of course your hospitality and gracious service are tops in the world! I have enclosed some fish-Pix and three enhanced maps of the lake I created on my computer. Thank you for the best week of fishing I ever had, and we'll be touch about next year's plan early after the holidays."

"Thank you for the experience of a lifetime. This being my first fishing trip, I cannot imagine catching more fish, larger fish, or finding kinder, more generous hosts. Tim & I were not even gone yet when we started making plans to come back.... as far as we are concerned, there is No other place in Canada to Fish.
...I was just looking at my pictures from my fishing trip with my brother-in-law and can't believe it's been 1 year. I just wanted to e-mail you to let you know that even after a year I still get goosebumps looking at the fish and thinking about how comfortable you made us. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR THE MEMORY OF A LIFETIME."

  -- Thank you for Everything. Jim Scoma
