My 33 incher from last week. Silver/Blue Cisco Kid trolling on Thaddeus (location still a secret!). ;-) A little windy most of the week but no rain! I'll take it!!! Wonderful week with all six species of fish getting into the boats. :-)
Wow looks great- Thanks for the chance to win your trip to the Northwoods.
Marty, when is the best time to call to give you the deposit for years?
Another beautiful night at Thaddeus Lake Lodge!!
For those who didn't get to witness this at camp this week.
Another beautiful night!!!

Thaddeus Lake Lodge is located just outside of Dryden, Ontario Canada

Thaddeus Lake Lodge has some of the best fishing you will ever experience, amazing bear hunts and they also offer moose hunts! Thaddeus Lake Lodge provides an excellent experience for not only the seasoned hunting and fishing experts; but also families just looking for a relaxing family get away!

Operating as usual


Merry Christmas everyone!! It’s a beautiful but chilly Christmas morning at the lodge, at least the wind has stopped for today. Wishing you all the best over the holiday season!


Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone!! It’s a beautiful day here at the lodge, very mild. Mild enough that the lake just doesn’t want to freeze over. There’s one big open spot left and I expect it won’t be until Dec 1 this year, which is quite late.
Spots are filling fast for 2023 so don’t forget to get your week locked in before they are all gone.
Have a safe and happy holiday!


OFFICIALLY CLOSED FOR THE SEASON!! I want to send a huge thank you out to all the customers who joined us in 2022. It was some of the best fishing ever had at the lodge and I believe we have many years of incredible fishing ahead of us.

A second major thank you goes out to the great dockhands, cleaning staff, and anyone else who helped me out in any way. It wasn't easy getting back going after such an interruption in business but we made it and its looking like 2023 will be my busiest year yet in all the years I've looked after the resort.

Bookings for 2023 will start October 5th, 2022. emails will be sent out and I will start calling all repeat clients. Please be patient, this is a long process to get through to everyone but you will hear from me. 2023 Fall Black Bear is SOLD OUT.

BORDER NEWS! It looks like all covid restrictions at the CAN/US border will be lifted this week. Vaccination will not be required and ArriveCAN app will be only voluntary. Maybe we can finally get things back to normal!!

I apologize for not posting much on social media this summer but it was extremely busy and the customers were priority. I do have some exciting new things lined up for the future to keep everyone entertained and informed. We have a new drone for some cool video and there is a new YouTube channel and Instagram page being worked on right now. Everyone feel free to forward as many photos and videos to me as possible (new or old). I need as much content as possible!!
There will finally be a new clothing line for 2023 which will be worked on throughout the winter and possibly an online store.

Everyone have a safe and healthy winter and keep watch for new updates throughout the season.
Thanks Everyone!

Happy 4th of July from Canada and Thaddeus Lake Lodge!!!


Cell Service is down at the lodge. Please email [email protected] if you need to get ahold of me.


Let the 2022 season begin!! Still lots of work to do now the ice is gone. See you all starting June 4th!
Note: I just found out that all uncooked poultry products are not permitted to cross the border, including eggs.


Happy Easter Everyone!!

As if winter wasn’t tough enough and long enough, now we have a record breaking blizzard on the way.
Note to booked customers: spring email will go out soon and everyone will be contacted personally by phone.

Hey everyone!! I know I haven’t posted for a while so I figured I’d let you know we are still alive up here. Here’s a little peek at what’s been keeping me so busy lol. If it’s not snowing or blowing, it’s -30.
Good thing is that all this snow should bring the lake levels back up come the melt.
Anyone thinking about booking for 2022 call now and act fast, booking changes daily so openings come and go. 2022 bear hunt is sold out but I’m accepting deposits for 2023 now

Watch in the next few days for some updates on border crossings and the website will be updated soon with new price rates and info.

Stay safe and healthy


Happy New Year everyone!


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Marty, Jody and all the dogs at Thaddeus Lake!


Finally some cold weather to build better ice.


Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends, guests and extended family in the US. We hope everyone is happy and healthy and can’t wait to see all of you again in 2022!!
Yesterday Thaddeus was wide open water, this pic is from this morning. Not totally froze but it won’t be long now, close to 0F at the moment which is our coldest day yet I believe.


Haven’t been near the phone or computer much over the last week. Had quite the snow storm in northwestern Ontario. We are all dug out now and can get out of camp for supplies. Crazy that our first snowfall was more snow than all last winter and the lakes aren’t even froze yet!


Happy Canadian Thanksgiving weekend! Feel free to reach out to see what few remaining spots are available for 2022.
Walleye opener has a couple openings if you want to be the first to enjoy the incredible fishing after all this time. May 21-27.

Some info necessary for anyone planning on crossing the Canadian border in the future.

Here is the link to the page listing requirements for fully vaccinated travelers visiting Canada as of August 9th, 2021.


Smoky again. Everyone pray for rain.


Unfortunately we've made the decision not to open for the remaining 6 weeks of our season for many different reasons. As much as we want to see our guests again, we will be pushing all deposits to 2022 when we can have a normal full season. I will be posting all the border crossing requirements throughout the next week so everyone is aware and prepared. As of now only fully vaccinated people can cross with a negative molecular test within 72 hours of crossing and all your info must be logged onto the ArriveCAN app. If anyone has any questions or concerns, feel free to call or text me at 807-220-2031.



THE BORDER WILL BE OPEN AUG 9TH, 2021!!!!! Finally some good news. please be patient while we figure out if and when we will be able to open for the end of this season. details will be out soon, along with all the requirements for crossing the border.


Fire season is in full effect, we are safe in our area for now thankfully. The town of Red Lake north of us may have to be evacuated though.

Pretty gnarly outdoors today. Temps took a huge dive and some damaging winds joined in. Spring is t here quite yet 👎🏻


Spring is early this year and the ice is starting to go. It’s been over a year since the border has been open and the most recent extension has it closed until April 21, 2021. I will be posting and emailing our plans for this upcoming season on Monday. Please feel free to reach out to me at 807-220-2031 or email [email protected] with any questions or concerns. Unfortunately I don’t have anymore answers than anyone else but I’m here to chat and talk options. Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy, fingers crossed everything gets back to normal soon.
