The big fishing dream in the middle of a very big lake

Everyone has dreams, even fishermen do. While some dream of large vaults of cash, others dream of owning their dream home. While there are those who dream of taking luxury cruises around the world, men and women from around the world are hovering down to Lac La Martre to catch their dream trophy northern pike. Lac La Martre could very easily be perceived to be a dreamlike location, except to say that this small, tranquil resort is a reality for no more than sixteen cabin guests in any one week.

To their comfort, no pampering of the plush, pink and casino style is given. Here there is just country-style hospitality and warm kitchen comforts. Guests in their turn get to supply the kitchen with the treasures of the lake, usually in the form of its famously preserved trout and salmon. While they are perfectly naturalized to the lake, these fish have earned some truly exotic names, such as Monster Northern Pike, Big Fat Lakers and the more exquisitely termed Arctic Grayling.

This small resort will only accommodate up to six guests for any one week’s stay. This allows for the comforts of the tranquil country life. There is no need to stress, mess and fuss over the daily nightmares of urban city lifestyles and crowds, especially not while on vacation. Fishing on the lake is more than a vacation. It may be dreamlike but it’s not a dream. It is a vocation and commitment to the natural life.

There is only one way to reach this small, tranquil resort. That is by aqua plane. The cabins are on a small island on a one thousand square mile lake.
