Our Fly-In Service Package

This is the ultimate fishing package. The fly-in trip will get your adrenaline started the moment you step foot in your charter float plane and it won’t stop until you are home again. You will be provided with your own deluxe cabin accommodations and delicious home-style cooked meals in the main lodge. Each day our experienced guides will have you out on the vast Manitou waters. Their expertise will maximize your success and adventures on the Manitou. Daily, the guides will prepare you a traditional, freshly-caught shore lunch prepared on an open fire. There is also an option for a hearty sack lunch. There is always a hot pot of coffee ready and fresh cookies!

  • If you have any special dietary needs, please let us know at time of booking so we can prepare.
  • The fly-in portion of the rate is provided by a local charter company and is therefore subject to change without notice. There are weight restrictions for gear for each guest, ask us about details.


Our Boat-In Service Package

Just as complete as our fly in package described above; including our experienced guide service, deluxe lodging and delicious home cooking… however, the boat-in package lets you unwind a little more slowly from your non-fishing life. Our boat-in service picks you up at (and returns you to) Esox Landing. We provide you with driving instructions to arrive at the rendezvous time. It is then approximately an hour boat ride through the Manitou Straights and up through most of Lower Manitou. A beautiful trip that will show you first-hand the remoteness of the adventure ahead of you.

4nights/3days $1425

6nights/5days:   $2125

5nights/4days:    $1775

7nights/6days:     $2450

If you just want to eat in the lodge with us and go out fishing on your own we can do that as well; package includes lodging and meals.

Price per night: $160

House Keeping Plans

SONY DSCOur two most popular Housekeeping plans are either WE boat you in or YOU boat in directly with your own boat.

Our perfect location on Lower Manitou AND the best lodging in the area makes our housekeeping packages the very best value for your fishing dollars!

Both plans offer you our deluxe cabins with screened-in three-season rooms, private docks and hook ups to charge your boats and electronics. Cabins have full kitchens with all the items needed to cater to the “foodies” in the group. There are also BBQs and a larger grill at the main lodge. We will provide you with detailed instructions to get to Esox Landing, whether for boat taxi service or to launch your own boat.

Before finalizing your Housekeeping plan – consider one or two more items to significantly increase the value of your trip. First consider adding one or two days of guide service at the beginning of your trip – these experienced guides will put you on the best fishing any day of the season. Second, consider adding a meal, especially on the day of arrival or day of departure – it just allows you more time to be focused on fishing.

Our Boat-in Package

Let us take care of picking you up at the landing and getting you safely to your deluxe accommodations. We will take you through the Manitou Straights and through most of Lower Manitou. The 60-minute trip will give you time to unwind and take in the wonderful scenery. Our staff will get you settled in and then get you ready to hit the water for your first day of fishing. We will take the time to get you oriented with the lake and offer advice on some current hot spots and lures to get you started.

For each day of fishing you will have one of our 18′ 50HP boats and a daily amount of gas and fish finders.

Boats Include:

  • gas
  • trolling motors
  • GPS fish finder with lake chip (lake is mapped with contour lines)
  • a couple of our boats have downriggers.  Please ask well in advance for this.

Security deposit for boat motors is required by an approved credit card imprint (MasterCard or Visa).

Lodging:  $85 per night

Boat rental: $160 per day.

Boat taxi to and from the landing is: $250 round-trip

You Boat in With Your Own Boat Package
