Lake Trout

Five-star, Canadian Lake Trout fishing—this is some serious action

Lake Trout common catch and release: 50+ pounds.

When experienced anglers want to land a LUNKER Lake Trout during a Canada fishing trip, they choose Big Sand Lake Lodge. As soon as ice is out around mid-April, we start targeting Lakers. These giant fighters will tire you out quickly. But, we know you’ll be back the next morning, ready for more battles (and more stories to tell).

Speaking of stories, how about winning for a Manitoba Master Angler award? Many of our guests have qualified for the most reputable and oldest master angler program in North America. You’ll get your achievement recognized, receive a Master Angler Catch-and-Released badge, and have your name entered into the official master angler registry.

The comfort, the food, the hospitality, the fishing! No other Canadian Lake Trout fishing trip reaches this level of quality.
