And…. Our new season is almost upon us!

By |December 1st, 2017|

Hey all!

Just sitting in our hotel getting ready for our first show of the season!  We are in St.Paul at the St. Paul Ice Fishing show in Minnesota this weekend.  If you are around, be sure to stop by!  We would love to see you! 

Spring Fishing

By |May 15th, 2017|

So our first group came just as the ice was leaving the lake and it snowed for 3 days slowing the fishing down a bit.  They still managed to boat some nice fish, biggest being 42″.  

As weather last week got warmer the bite picked up, and the one group had a personal best […]

Opening season is just around the corner!

By |April 19th, 2017|

Sorry it has been so long!  Our site was down for a while and I am not the most computer “literate” person, so with a few calls we are all good to go!  

So I guess it has been a while for some of you if you don’t belong to Facebook!  It is so […]

Getting Geared Up For The Shows!

By |December 1st, 2016|

It’s that time of year again!  Where does the time go?  It has been a fantastic fall for us at the camp with this mild weather and lack of snow!  Although the kids will tell you different!  They are waiting on the snow so they can break out the sleds and the skates for […]

Fall is here!

By |September 26th, 2016|

So it is time to start thinking about closing things up for the winter.  It has been pretty wet here.  I think all you Iowa people are sending your rain our way!

The fall fishing has been stellar as always.  Some big fish caught in the last few weeks.  We had one group pull a […]

And BAM! June is over!

By |July 1st, 2016|

Hey all!

SO just like that June is over!  What a whirlwind month!  Happy Canada Day to all our Canadian friends and Happy Independence Day to all our fiends south of the border!  Hope you all have a great long weekend!

We are going to sit back and take a breather here!  Camp is still busy […]

As we begin our sixth season here at Five Lakes Lodge, I am reminded of why I really do love this life!

I’ll be honest with you, some days I long for my old “normal” 9 to 5 day job and camping and fishing on the weekend life!  But then a week like this one […]

Spring Has Sprung!!!

By |May 4th, 2016|

OMG!  We have been busy little beavers here at Five Lakes Lodge the past month!  Ian (and his friends… as our regular laborer Ron was out of town) have been busy!

After the bathroom in Cabin 7 was gutted and redone, the boys moved on to the kitchen in there.  We have new cupboards!!  Yay! […]

In like a lion…. Out like a lion!

By |April 13th, 2016|

Ya, so my prediction of an early spring got totally shut down by Mother Nature.  I guess I jinxed us??  I don’t know if I believe it but looking at the long range forecast, we just might see some nice weather headed our way soon.  I thought by the way things were going in […]
