Customer Feedback

14-21 July 2017, was one of  the best weeks for me and my family and friends. We had the adventure of a life time. This was the not my first time fishing at North Star Lodge, but the best. We caught lots of fish, ate lots of fish and the fun never stopped. I think that if it is possible this is something I would like to do every year. It was so much fun to just watch everyone catch a fish, with anticipation to see what is was they caught. I want to thank Stan, Amy, Drake and Hanna and the NSL staff for providing such a fantastic fishing environment.

Thought I would send a pic of the personal best Pike I caught last week while targeting Walleye with my son Keaton, brother Kevin and uncle Jim Denk and friends. It was quite a memorable battle (to say the least) on Walleye tackle.  I decided release this beast to fight another day.  As well, the Walleye fishing was very good with plenty of nice-sized fish up to 29" landed by our group.   Always a great time on Clay Lake - can't wait to get back again!

Just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks to you, Stan, Drake and the rest of your staff for an outstanding week we had the last week in August. Drake is a great young man and took care of us in anything we asked for. You should both be very proud.  We had some personal bests in size of fish and numbers. I caught the largest fish on the last day, personal best, last drift after getting rained on for an hour and 1/2. We had many fish between 30 - 39. we stopped counting and taking pictures. All fish were catch and release.  I have attached a couple of the Clay lake beauties.

We will be coming back same time next year.

Thanks Again.  Kirk and Mark

I wanted to drop you a note that the (10) guys you accommodated in the large cabin had an outstanding time. Big John wanted me to personally thank his guide, Carmon, for a fishing adventure of a life time. As usual the hospitality of you group is second to none and the cook is outstanding and meals supplied is the only way to go with a group this large. I'm working on my wife to consider going to the lodge in August instead of Nova Scotia.  Have a great summer and I will be in touch later in the year. I have included (2) nice pictures in the attachment of our stay at North Star Lodge. Thanks again for everything.

We say every year will be our best year ever, but this year it was too true!  The fishing was tremendous; we were limited out within the first morning's fishing.   As you know, we have already made our reservations for next year; cabin #12 has it's annual tenants already counting the weeks until we return.  

 Thanks again, Joe Sebel,  Platte City, MO

"I have been fishing Clay Lake for over 30 years and have had the distinct pleasure of staying at the North Star Lodge for about  the last 20 years. Stan, Amy, Dean, Carmon and Drake all seem to make my annual fishing trip an enjoyable experience. The entire staff will go out of their way to put you on the most fish possible. They are genuinely concerned that you have everything you need to make the week as relaxing and as comfortable as possible. The combination of the Waibgoon  River system and the dark Clay Lake water make ideal conditions for the best walleye fishing I have ever experienced. The Norther Pike fishing is also outstanding. I have a 20 lb mounted on the wall in my office next to a 10 lb walleye that are both from Clay Lake. This is my favorite fishing trip of the year and  I guess that's why I start planning my next year's trip the day after I get back home from North Star Lodge."

Stan and Amy,

 Thanks for another great trip to North Star Lodge.  We'll be back.  Not sure when yet.  We are leaning towards September of 2014.

Thanks,  John Hull

In all honesty, you guys run a top notch outfit.  It was really nice having someone help dock the boats, load bait, and give us advice on where to look for fish.  The cabins were neat and clean every day.  The food was fantastic - I ate way more than I should have!  It may be a year of two, but I would like to fish with you again.

Thanks again, have a great season!

I would like to thank you for one awesome time at your lodge on clay lake. The accommodations are great the lodge fish fry was great and the fishing was great and your people are great. The fishing boats that you provided ( great to fish from). Could not ask for anything more. Your son Drake did a fine job taking care of all our needs. You have a good kid there. I was sorry to leave and will look forward to getting back next year. We have good fishing here in Wisconsin, even though you said fishing was slow there, it was some of the best fishing I have ever seen. Can't wait to see what good fishing is like there.
Ruth and I would like to thank you for a memorable time.

Amy and Stan,

Thanks for all your assistance in making this a trip of a lifetime for myself and Son Scott this June 2012. Big fish were two 35 inch Northerns ( one caught by myself and another caught by son Scott) along with a 38 inch Northern caught by son Scott Ventimiglia. Nice smallmouth and walleye were also caught during trip. Already making plans for next year, can't wait.

If I recommend a resort to anyone it will be North Star Lodge. First class place. We caught 185 walleyes over 22" and probably 150 were over 25". Biggest was 29 3/4".

Thanks again Muehlbauer Crew from Minnesota,

Stan, Amy, Dean, Megan,

Just wanted to say thanks for a great week in #18 and 19 June 12-18. Fishing was great and I am looking forward to next year on June 11 to 17. I caught the biggest Walleye ever and attached a photo. 31.5 inches and 10 lbs. Also couple of pike at 36.5. Our average size on walleyes increased again this year and was the highest yet.

Hi Stan and Amy,

Thanks for a great trip last weekend up at North Star Lodge. Fishing, food and the service were awesome. Everyone had a great time. Drake is really coming into his own and I see a lot of Stan in him as he is running around citing the History Channel and keeping everyone happy at camp.

Regards, Pete

Thank you so much for a wonderful 3 days and 4 night visit. The fishing was outstanding, the food out of this world and hospitality beyond description. Audrey and I could not have ask for a better place to fish and enjoy time in your great country. The size of the fish is outstanding and we would and will recommend North Star Lodge to all of our fishing friends in Kansas and elsewhere. Thank you again for a wonderful time and we hope to be back next year! ! ! It is by far the best place we have been to fish in Canada! ! !
