We had a great fishing trip. Hoping we can get it together to make it back up next year. I can tell you we were very impressed with the dock crew and the dining room crew. We were truly waited on hand and foot. We felt like Island 10 royalty!

Tell everyone we really appreciated their hard work. I have rarely experienced that kind of attention from the servers in 5 star restaurants. Very impressive! And Andrea in the kitchen - I do not really know if she gets any help cooking from anyone else, but quantity and quality was outstanding!

Again, thank you!

Thank you once again for another enjoyable week. The service and hospitality were outstanding as always. The fishing was great . . . the conservation measures that have been put in place are doing the trick. We've never caught so many quality walleye.

As we awaited the barge at Mowatt's Landing with anticipation for the coming week we remarked at the sad faces who were departing. Someone said "that will be us in a week". How true it was as we greeted the eager faces at the landing with our own sad faces upon realization that the week was over. We no sooner departed the landing and conversation turned to next year. Can't wait. Thanks again.

Mike P.


We want to tell you, once again, how absolutely awesome, wonderful, great, outstanding, amazing and breath-taking our stay was with you both, and of course your fabulous staff, at Island 10 . . . even better than last year, our first visit.

. . . we thoroughly enjoyed the camaradrie between the other guests and us, as well as with the exciting, light-hearted and most affable & accommodating host ever; you know Ken, the one with the "Rooster Clock". Keep it coming - it's fun and enjoyable.

Again, thank you both so much, we look forward to seeing you next year.

Best Regards,
Ted and Cathy C.


The cabin #2 group (Mark, Jim, Mike, myself) had a great time during our week there. You run a first-class operation from the cabins, boats/motors, food, to the staff. Fishing was very good and we found a lot more spots to hit, the visit being the second time there for three of us. We are all looking forward to returning again once we can get everyone's schedule figured out.

Sincerely,
Mark F.


Does it ever seem like a broken record .... all these people week after week writing to thank you for an incredible fishing vacation. You can add the Calders to the long list.

Our Island 10 experience is always first-class, 5-star, top-notch, A-1 and every superlative you can name. This year was the very best ever!!

Thank you to all the shore staff. Each of you has a wonderful and workable blend of skills and personality.

Ken, if there was an Academy Award for "best owner of a fishing retreat" the Oscar would be living at your house on a permanent basis.

If you ever needed proof of a good time, just check out Al's smile on the picture attached. This is our 18 3/4" smallmouth caught at Snag Point. You'll note I said "our" smallmouth. Like, I suspect, many couples, we have a division of duties that stops and ends at the waterline. Al does all the "above the waterline" work ... buying all the equipment, driving the boat, finding the best spot, putting the leech on my hook, getting the hook out, measuring, and on and on. All I do in my "below the waterline" work is set the hook and reel in. Seems to work out well for both of us.

See you next year. We’re already booked and looking forward to 2013 at Island 10.

Cheers,
Sherrill C.


Once again, thank you for a great week. The cabin was perfect, the food was great, and the service was excellent. I look forward to coming back again and again. As your name implies, it truly is a "retreat" for me. Oh, I do have one complaint; could you please do something about the sun and 85 degree temperatures and the still waters...we only caught 100 or so fish as opposed to our usual 150 or so that we would have caught with a little wind and rain!

Regards,
Mike P.


I just wanted to thank you again for the great week we had at your lodge. Your employees have A+++++ service in my book. Amanda and Shelly had the cabins very clean when we came back in from fishing. Chris and Justin kept the boats ready to go at all times. The food was phenomenal! Malcom is a great cook. This has been by far the best lodge/cabins I have been too in the 17 years I have been coming up to Canada. I am already looking forward to coming back next year.

Thanks Again
Todd F.


I just wanted to drop you a line and thank you again for your hospitality and let you know that we had a great time at Island 10. Everything from the fishing to the food to your staff was just outstanding. We look forward to making a return trip to Island 10 in the future.

Sincerely,
Joe V.


You have the gift of making each guest "A Special Person". Thank You!

Dave . . . "The Hat You Sign Guy"


What a wonderful time we had at Island 10. One of our best trips ever. Your entire staff and family are ones to remember. Not to mention that monster pike I caught. Ken........again it was 43.5", 21.5 girth, and approx 25 lbs. I must admit I caught and brought it to the side of the boat, but Skip had to get it in the boat I could not lift it! An experience of a lifetime.

We look forward to seeing everyone again next year. We also want to say how much we enjoyed all the other guests that we met. All wonderful people.

Andra & Carl P.


WOW, what a way to spend our 50th Anniversary. We can't thank you enough for the great week you provided for us. The special treat of our anniversary cake complete with sparklers will be remembered fondly. AND, the fact that Jack taught me how to catch the biggest Northern (27"), the biggest Walleye (22") and the biggest Bass (17"). (At least he says he taught me). I have bragging rights for the next year. Thanks again!

Jack & Diane L.


Once again, you pulled off a minor miracle. How you take such amazing care of 25 or 30 guests, including incredible meals, cabin cleaning, boat service, etc., etc. is a mystery. On behalf of Tim, Tom, Pete (and myself, of course), I would like to thank you for another spectacular week of fishing, eating and relaxation. Until next time, keep up the good work and have a great season!

Mike L.




I want to thank all of you for making my week at Island 10 a most enjoyable experience. Everything was more than I expected!

You also cooperated by providing great weather as well as super fishing. I don't know how you arranged that, but I will expect it to be the same next year as well.

Thanks to Andrea and Bev I managed to gain 4 pounds. Needless to say the eats were very top quality and the deserts fattening!

I am trying to get the group together for next year and you can be sure to hear from us as soon as I can arrange a date suits all.

Please feel free to use me as a reference for new clients. (Note: Please contact us if you want to talk to Sam about Island 10.)

Sam M.


I had a great time at your lodge this year. Once again, you have not disappointed me and made the 358 days of anticipation worth it. My Brother is really, really mad because he did not come and I think we are going to find a way to come back next year. I will be in touch later this year to check your openings for 2009.

Thanks again Ken and Bev, and Andrea, and Mike for the good experience.

Thanks again for the great experience and all the hospitality. You guys rock!!!

Jeff and Dawn K. (Michigan)


Just thought I'd drop you a line to say we had a great trip and I continue to look back on the week spent at Island 10 as the ultimate fishing vacation. It's rare these days that a place actually exceeds expectations from what is advertised on their website: you all did!. It's the best place yet I've found to forget who you are. We all came back to the regular day-to-day life grind fully recharghed and with a ton of great pictures and fishing stories. Thank you for the great hospitality during our stay and we look forward to our next fishing trip to Island 10.

Nathan E.


I wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful fishing experience. As we all discussed on our way back home, everything you claim in your web sites is true. You have provided us with a wonderful set of memories (and pictures to prove them).

Richard C. (Texas)


We all had a great time and are looking forward to coming back next year. The facilities and the staff are second to none.

Bob V.


Our group had a fabulous time at Island 10. I hope to be back next year. Thanks for the good time and great service provided by you and your staff.

Al C. (Ontario)


Just wanted to say that we again had a great time fishing this year. The weather was a tad cold, but we enjoyed ourselves immensely. I also wanted to let you know that I would like to change our reservation next year from 5 days to 7 days.

Gary M. (Michigan)


I have been heard to say, "It's not about the catchin, it's about the fishin." If I am to be completely honest though, I would also have to say that it is about the friendship and camaraderie, the impeccable service, the awesome food, the call of the loon, the back-bay moose, the northern lights, the star-filled sky, the solitude. I can't think of a place that I enjoy more or a place where I would rather be. From the moment I leave, I look forward to returning. Thank you, once again, for a great week. The place looked great. The fishing was great and the catchin wasn't bad either. To Andrea and Mike and the rest of the crew....well done. Please tell Jesse that his recommendation for flowers was perfect. See you next year!

Mike P. (New York)


I just want to thank you and the staff for another great week. I personally had the best time I have had at Island 10 . . . You all do such a wonderful job.

Kurt V. (Indiana)


Thank you for your hospitality last week at Island 10. You sure set the bar high. I don't think there will ever be another fishing retreat/camp other than Island 10 in our future. Scott, Brad and I had a fabulous time and will be talking about the food, service, accommodations and the friends we made for years to come. Oh yea, the fishing was a blast too. Schedules permitting, we hope to make this an annual tradition in our family.

The three of you are delightful people and your staff and guests reflect your personalities. Ken, you're one of a kind and had us laughing all week. The three of us are now saying, "yeah yeah, ohhhh yeah".

All of your attention to detail did not go unnoticed. On Friday, Scott and I both awoke not feeling well and decided to return to bed after breakfast. We stayed in the cabin all day until dinner and when we returned, our beds had been made and bathroom cleaned. Although unnecessary, Scott and I were pleasantly surprised and will talk about the personal service we got all week. During my travels to The Homestead, The Greenbriar, Pinehurst and many Ritz Carltons, none can match the attention you gave us. Thank you!!

Richard O.


Watching you do that west facing smooth water landing in the late day shadows formed an impressive memory for me. As did Andrew's 23.5 (tail not pinched) inch blue walleye, my 33 inch pike and all those the huge bass and masses of walleye. Furthering the list is : drifting within 20 feet of a cow and calf moose drinking at the shore line, at least 4 separate bird of prey events one of which is taking a fish from the open water, the food and hospitality and service, are but a few of many outstanding memories the location, you and your staff and ultimately the fish gods provided for my brother and I.

Thank you for having the vision to create the atmosphere where one can retreat from it all and just fish.

Patrick S. (Ontario)


Just wanted to thank you and your great team for the wonderful time that Chris and myself had at your lodge. The lodge location on the lake is ideal and this makes getting to all parts of the lake an easy and enjoyable trip each day, no matter what part of the lake you want to visit. Although this was our first trip to the lodge we were able to find locations with fish everyday even though it is a very large lake! The boats are ideal for fishing and very well maintained by your staff. The food and housekeeping services are second to none and cabins were far nicer then I had imagined for a fishing lodge. I'm going to recommend your lodge to a couple of other friends of mine who also like to fish and I know would enjoy themselves as much as we did.

Both Chris and I look forward to booking another trip next summer.

Drew S. (Ontario)


I was up at Island 10 the 1st week of Sept. 2008 with my brother-in-law Bud and his two son-in-laws. They caught the two big walleye at the same time (27" & 29" - once in a lifetime). We all had a great time. The food was delicious and more than I could eat. Thanks Andrea, Bev & Teresa!

I would like to say thanks to Mike, Tom, Jessie (Rookie) - they were always there in the morning and when you came in at night - great job guys! Ken - you operate a 1st class fishing retreat - keep up the good work. Hope to see you soon.

Bob S. (Ohio)

Kind Words From Clients

Thanks again for an awesome week . . . already counting down till next year! - Dawn K.

Thanks for another great year! See you in another 51 weeks! - Bob K.


I wanted to drop you an email to let you know how much I enjoyed my trip to Island 10. I rank it as one of my all time best. Looking forward to seeing you next year. Cheers! - John G.


I visited your wonderful Island on Tuesday evening Sept 11th with Harold Watling and another chap, we were at Lady Evelyn the week of Sept 10 through the 15th. I was so impressed with your Island 10 and words can not describe the great time we had at your fish fry that evening. Thanks again folks for a wonderful time. - Jerry C.


Jim and I have been coming up here for quite a few years now . . . as always you and your staff are the best I've been associated with. I've been to other lodges and many charter trips, yet none of them come close to the service you provide. We'll see you again in September. - Jim & Roger


Scott and I want to thank you guys for another great week at camp. Your staff did a tremendous job. Our group has finally found a camp we can continue to come to year after year. You guys make it feel like home. Looking forward to next June. Thanks again. - Todd F.

Another great trip - as always. A lot of fish were taken every day and quite a few big (REAL BIG) fish in the mix. I can't thank Ken & Bev & Andrea & Mike & all of their staff for making this another great trip. Truly "Top Notch". - Tom M.


Just wanted to drop a line to thank you again for a great time. Island 10 sets the standard and you and your crew are the best. See you next year! - Denis St. P.

What you provide goes way beyond boats, food and lodging. You help create memories that last a lifetime. I truly believe that no one does it better than your team. The effort you put into running your camp does not go unnoticed by your guests. We are planning a trip back to Island 10 next summer and hope to continue for many years to come. - Brian P, KY


Ken . . . I was totally impressed not only with the fishing but with everything you do. I have finally found a camp which I can call my own and will be back many times in the future for sure. Your repeat customers speak volumes of what you and your camp are about and my wife and I have made friends there that will last a lifetime. - Bill C., ON


Just a note to thank you again for your wonderful hospitality and making our trip so memorable. We soooo want to come back. I have never left a vacation with tears in my eyes. We truly had the time of our lives and plan to return. - Bill & Peggy


As always, Great Service, Great Food, Great Equipment, Great Fishing, Great Time. - Dante P., OH


No one has been going to Lady Evelyn Lake longer than I. This year was my 52nd...I went first with my Dad and Grandfather when I was 7. I have stayed at every camp more than once. WITHOUT QUESTION Island 10 under Bev and Ken's leadership is the best BY FAR. Accomodations are excellent, food is five star, staff won't let you lift a finger. I strongly advise anyone looking for a great, remote fishing Lake to consider Lady Evelyn and if you do why not stay at the best place on the lake...Island 10 Fishing Retreat. - Billy F., OH


I want to thank all of you for making my week at Island 10 a most enjoyable experience. Everything was more than I expected! You also cooperated by providing great weather as well as super fishing.
