Had a great time. 6 days of fishing was fantastic and weather beautiful. The people who run the lodge could not be more helpful. Catered to every need especially Mary Ellen, the manager. Great food and plenty of it. One person in our party had a food allergy to mushrooms. Paul, t

We stayed 4 days on the American Plan.
TIP- get a guide on the first full day to find out where the good spots are and bring a GMRS radio with you.

Pros: The food was very good, nice lounge area, the staff bent over backwards to satisfy our needs. The cottage we had was large,

Good Afternoon: Thank you for visiting us last year and sharing your reviews of Pine Portage. We do encourage suggestions from all of our guests and appreciate your reviews, and hope that you did share them with the management staff at the lodge, to be resolved. We have now purchased altogether 15 new boats and all of our guests seem very satisfied with them and say they handle really well in rough water. We have now updated to all 20 Hp 4 stroke all of which take straight gas, no more 15 hp. 2 stroke which required mixed gas. We apologize for your seats and motor problems and do hope both where resolved for you at the lodge. Again thanks for your Pros and Cons and hope to see you back at Pine Portage Lodge.

We have a group that comes up every year. The fish are plentiful. Walleye are nice size for a Ontario lake. You can't beat a shore lunch. The broil lunch was great and fried fresh walleye are always wonderful. Boats are good with some having 20hp electric start. Meals were great.

Hi Mark: Thanks for all your great comments and glad that you enjoyed your family trip. All of our food is homemade right from the cookies to bread. Unfortunately we cannot control the weather but Mother Natural sometimes is on our side and lets the clouds part and sun comes out and wind dies down. It is quite a large lake and getting a guide is beneficial for sure. We do hope to see you once again and thanks again for sharing your experience with us. Mary Ellen
