WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Well, first look where we are located. Our airbase is 4-1/2 hours north of the U.S. Canadian border and from there we fly out 70-150 air miles. What does this mean? It means you are getting into some of the finest lakes in Northwestern Ontario that have had the least amount of fishing pressure.

The majority of the lakes south of our base at Red Lake have been fished since the late 40’s and early 50’s. So, when your trying to decide on a Flyin lake to fish you need to consider the quality of fishing on the lake your thinking about. Obviously, a lake that has been fished for the past 50 years isn’t going to have the quality of fishing that a lake that has been fished only the past 10-20 years. Especially when it comes to catching trophy fish.

So, before you book your next Flyin, look at a map and see where your lake is located. Is there a logging road in this area; is the lake your thinking about booking accessible by these roads? Does this lake get fished in the winter? All these are questions you should be asking when considering a Flyin lake. There is a large difference in the quality of these Flyin lakes and you should try to make sure your getting the best value for your dollar. Sometimes for a few more dollars and a couple hours further to drive north, you can fish one of the better lakes Ontario has to offer rather than one that has been fished from the past 50 years or more. Doing this comparison will help ensure you get what you are paying for. If you are really looking for better fishing than your currently experiencing the drive to Red Lake will be well worth your while.

Questions you want to ask before booking a Flyin fishing trip.

  1. Are you flying into a real wilderness area where you truly have to Flyin? Or are you flying into a lake accessible from a close by road?
  2. Are you flying into a premiere Flyin lake, one of Ontario’s best or are you just going to a so so lake? References should be able to clarify this for you.
  3. Portages? Our lakes are high quality fisheries on large enough lakes with deep water to ensure great fishing all summer.  We have a few portage lakes but the fishing is not any better than you would have within a half mile of your cabin.  Portaging is not necessary at Amik Outposts.
  4. Who are you flying in with and what type of aircraft? Do they own their own aircraft or are you at the whim of some flying service that is busy moving their own guests first? Or is the owner flying you in with their own small 3 person plane and it’s going to take 3 trips and 1/2 a day to get your party of 6 to our outpost?
  5. Look at a map of Northwestern Ontario and you can usually see what you’re paying for. There is a reason for going deep into the wilderness. It holds the best possible Flyin fishing left in the Province.

First and foremost, we have premiere fishing lakes and catching fish is never a question. You will always catch a lot of fish and the size is great, too. You can’t take any trophies out, but that’s why we still have the size as well as the numbers.

We have newer, comfortable cabins which are equipped with solar power, gas fridges & freezers, showers, and indoor plumbing. It’s nice enough to bring the wives, for sure.

Well, with great fishing and comfortable accommodations, what’s left?

Equipment consists of 14′ Lund boats with swivel boat seats and new 10 and 15hp.outboard motors. We own and operate our own Otter Aircraft, just to fly our own guests to our camps. We have scheduled departure and fly out times, and do our best to make sure your trip runs as smoothly and pleasantly as possible, weather permitting.

Well, how was your fishing trip last year or the last time you went? Good, hopefully, but if it seemed to lack what you were expecting, you might want to give us a try.
