I have been there twice now in August each year & lining up again for the third time this year.
Location is idyllic , fishing is fantastic , life style with a group of guys cooking for ourselves & making our own fun is the best life can produce. Enid & Hugh are two of the most genuine people you could find anywhere in the world & the sea plane trip from Red Lake is wonderful.
Being a regular guest who has travelled for over 30 hours just to get to Minneapolis must be testament to just how good this fishing camp really is . Port Stephens NSW Australia to Los Angeles to Minneapolis takes 30 hours & then in car for another 12 hours to Red Lake means your destination & the fishing needs to be world class & i'm coming again to prove that it is . Boats are safe & reliable & well maintained for catching Walleyes & pikes . Accommodation is comfortable ,well provided with everything you need & Enid is there to look after us . As I have just completed my 49th trip to the "other side of the world" I believe that I know what is good & Viking Island Ontario Canada has it in bucket loads. Im again excited about this years trip.
