  • Trip was truly unbelievable!!!! We had 14 Dad's and son's do the 4 night fly-in to Rogers Lake and a few stayed 3 more nights at Big North main lodge.. From the first class service of helping us prepare for our first fly-in, to the incredible cabin at Rogers and the constant monitoring of the rookies by Alex and Zack was truly amazing.. Crazy part, the fishing was even more amazing. Everyone caught an incredible number of fish, Trophy smallmouth, Pike and Walleye.. The walleye were so numerous and big, we caught them regularly casting for pike.. It was crazy!! Our trip didn't end at Rogers, incredible fishing and service at Big North.. Food was incredible, accommodations were amazing, and the fishing was unbelievable.. Son caught a monster pike and 2 musky!! Big North can't thank u enough for the trip of a lifetime. Son is hooked!! See u soon!! Mike

  • The best trip I?ve been on!!! We traveled with a group of 14 guys and everyone at Big North Lodge exceeded all expectations and their owners/staff could not have been more hospitable! Zach, Val and Dave were who I saw regularly and they took care of everything. This ranged from getting our boats ready with gas, bait, etc., or cooking breakfast/dinner, packing coolers for the day out on the boat, picking up misc. things in town while we were fishing, cleaning our cabins and leaving fresh linens daily. The cabins were very comfortable and clean! The fishing was amazing and we made memories to last a lifetime. Thank you again to Big North Lodge and staff!

  • Great accommodations! Super friendly staff, they do make you feel like family. The area is breathtaking, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets combined with some world class fishing and you have memories for a lifetime. I have been back twice for week long trips and looking forward to making this an annual event.
