Ultimate Fishing Show Detroit / Novi – This Weekend

January 12, 2018 – Join us tonight til 8:00 (show is open til 9:00) and again this weekend at the Ultimate Fishing Show going on now at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.  We will be here until the show closes at 5pm on Sunday.  With me in the booth, we’ve got Eric and Spencer from camp this past summer, and special thanks to frequent camp guests, Steve & Jeff Loehr, and Joon Hur for being here as well. Hear about staying at Loch Island Lodge and our cabins, fishing our great lake, and learn about the wilderness experience we offer.

Join us at the our Booth (#1004)


We’d love to see you if you come to the show.  Stock up on tackle, view fishing seminars, and dream about spring!

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Loch Island Lodge / Camp Lochalsh!

Happy Thanksgiving all! Winter has descended upon Wabatongushi Lake. The wailing cry of loons has been replaced by lonely north winds, bringing in chilly temperatures and transforming our summer paradise into a frozen winter wonderland. Now is time to take a much needed break and enjoy some down time with family and friends.

Soon we’ll be heading to the sport shows and then, shortly thereafter, we’ll be returning to the lake! So many new projects are planned for next summer! Stay tuned to find out just what we have up our sleeves. If you haven’t already made plans for your trip in 2018, get those dates together. We are filling up fast!

Have a great Thanksgiving and upcoming holiday season!

Spring is in the air!

Welcome to our new website!  Please look around and let us know what you think, and if there is more information you’d like to see.  The Winter Newsletter and 2016 Fishboard are up now so be sure to check this out.  Don’t forget to sign up (in the box at the bottom of the pages) for e-mail updates for both blog posts and periodic newsletters which will include special offers throughout the year!

As well, we’ve added a downloadable 2-page detailed map of Wabatongushi Lake that has depth markings and all the lake’s bays, islands and points — so visit the Lake Page (or via the link in the right column) to download that too!  New this year is a Game Preserve section, which we will be updating more to highlight some of the activities and natural beauty that surrounds us on the lake and the many outpost lakes.

Following a night of thunderstorms here in the Sault, snow and ice are melting like mad! It won’t be long now before we are back at camp, sanding and varnishing boats and getting things ready for opening day. This year, Walleye opener is May 20th!

Again, feel free to leave any comments about the new site and what you think in the comments below!

I hope you’re all ready for our unique and much-loved shore lunch!!!!
