"Hi Jeff & Tina!!! We had an absolutely GREAT TRIP!!!

We LOVED the Shikwamkwa Lake Outpost! It's not for people not prepared to stay at an "outpost" but for those that are...it's perfect! We really can't say enough great things about your hospitality and friendship! This was our first trip to the outpost but won't be our last...it's a little piece of heaven! We caught both trophy class and eater sizes and ate like kings all week! We loved your mid-week visit and loved sharing stories and pictures. Thanks for posting them on the outpost link, that's cool! My son and I will not forget the pair of 40 inch Northern's we caught back to back! We released them both in good shape so they can spawn more future giants. We caught tons of walleye and several large smallmouth. We didn't find any other species, we trolled for lake trout and even tried for some perch and whitefish but didn't find them. So, back to the Walleye, Northern's and Smallmouth! :)

For anyone looking for a secluded outdoors adventure...the outpost is the answer. However, be warned...come prepared for a rustic camping style vacation with bugs, critters and none of the comforts of home, no electricity, running water, phone....total bliss!!!! We saw eagles, beaver, lynx, moose, bear all from either shore or our boat! We explored everywhere, waded beaver dams, bathed in the lake and made some great memories! Thanks!"

Jeff and Tina,

I just wanted to tell you again a special “Thank You” for all you did in helping make our stay one of the most memorable and wonderful trips ever. I truly enjoyed every day we were there and wish already that I was still there. I had a great time sight seeing around the lake and the fishing was fine. I did catch my biggest “northern pike” ever. We guessed weighed about 10 lbs . The scenery there is truly magnificent. You have a beautiful place there and maybe one day I will be lucky to return again. I have been many places in my fishing travels in the past 35 years and I have never had any hosts better than you and Jeff. You folks really took great care of us southern “rednecks”. Thank you both again for a wonderful experience.

Dear Jeff and Tina

I wanted to thank you again for the outstanding time I had bear hunting. The lake is gorgeous and the cottages met all our needs. The services you provide made for an excellent hunt from beginning to end.

I was so excited seeing so many bears and so much action. Of course a NICE bear was the highlight of the hunt.

Thanks again for the HUNT OF A LIFETIME!
