A buddy and I have been fishing at Manotak Lodge for over 5 years. We have added a second week to our stay due to our total enjoyment of this lodge. We use the American Plan that is offered, and our accomodations are in rustic log cabins with a view of the lake. The meals are excellent, the staff goes the extra mile to ensure that you are having a good time. Dave and Linda, the owners are always working on how to make your vacation better. It is difficult to make a great fishing experience better, but they try. Dave is always at the dock at 7:00am to give you pointers, or directions to the latest hot spots. He is back at the dock when you return from your fishing to find out how well you did, where you caught the fish, and what you used to catch them. He imparts this information back to everyone the next morning to help everyone along.
When you arrive at Manotak as a guest, and get introduced to Dave, Linda and the staff, you become a friend. Perrault Lake has a great fishery for Northerns, Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, Perch, and Muskies, with many trophies caught each year. There is also another "walk-in" lake that Dave offers that is exceptional for Walleye and Northerns. Most people catch a minimum of 35 to 40 and more fish in a single trip.
This year they have set up webcams, so that the lakefront view, and dock view can be enjoyed before you arrive, and after you get home.
Manotak is located in the pristene far northwestern area of Ontario. It may be a long drive to get there, but it is well worth the trip. I have met guests from all areas of the U. S. - Alabama, Arizona, Illinois, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Virginia, Texas, and California. Almost all of them are repeat guests, some for over 30 years.
The dock guys, Earl and Kenny are always at the ready when you want to go out fishing to help you slide the boat into the water, and when you return to fillet and package your fish for you.
The boats are in top notch condition. We use an upgraded boat that is extra comfortable, and very stable.
I have fished in several areas of Ontario, but since trying Manotak 5 years ago, it is the only place I will fish.
