About this trip
The best Canadian Northern Pike fishing—these are the big beasts
Northern Pike common catch and release: 20-30+ pounds.
Imagine catching a 33-year-old Pike. Because Northern Manitoba is in the upper latitude of North America, fish grow slowly here. For example, a 49-½ inch, 32-lb. Northern Pike is estimated to be 33 years old. One thing they don’t lose with age is their attitude: always aggressive, always fighting.
Northern Pike aren’t tough to find in Canada; what’s unusual (and exceptional) about Big Sand Lake Lodge is our monstrous fish. Our sustainability efforts over the past two decades have allowed these fish to grow … and grow … into the biggest Pike in Canada.
Each year, numerous guests catch Northern that qualify for a Manitoba Master Angler award, the most reputable and oldest master angler program in North America. Get your achievement recognized, receive a Master Angler Catch-and-Released badge, and have your name entered into the official master angler registry.
Choose your stay.
Big Sand Lake Lodge offers 5-day and 10-day fly in fishing trips during which you’ll experience our main lodge and world-class fishing. No matter how long you stay, an all-inclusive Northern Pike fishing trip at the exclusive Big Sand Lake Lodge creates memories that last forever.
