A large socializing and relaxing area with couches and comfortable seating for multiple TV viewing arrangements, seminar stage (seminars will be enhanced with live action and instructional video sequences from the previous week), tackle and rental shop, clothing/gift shop, and of course bathrooms and kitchen. The second floor will have living quarters, office, and three A/P accommodations for singles or small groups on shorter or off-schedule stays.
The fish fry shack was moved to a slightly higher elevation for a nice scenic view and a front deck added for the end of day fresh walleye snacks and cocktails, socializing with other guests and the guides, and bull sessions. Improvements/remodeling on cabins #3, #5, and #8, several new guide boats, and be assured, there will be even a few more surprises when you drive in this coming season.

The 20′ KINGFISHER 2075 guide boats have been a big hit the last two seasons among guests and allowed the AML guides to fish to the best of their ability with outstanding guest comfort and safety. Several more additions are planned to complete the entire guide fleet with big and roomy 2100 Tuffys, 2075 Kingfishers, and Lunds. The AML Pro-Staff Guide Team are running the most fish-able boats in the industry today. It is our commitment to uphold the reputation of AML as Canada’s #1 Premier Fishing/Hunting Destination.
The 2017 season brought some exciting highlights for your viewing pleasure with the return of John Gillespie’s Woods and Waters to film three different episodes featuring AML and Eagle Lake. If you missed them, you can view the shows on the www.vimeo.com/gillespiefishing website or order a copy at www.gillespiefishing.com. Outdoor Option TV did a great early season show and will air on the Pursuit Channel this winter. Filming is in real time as it happens, always some laughs, and always great action. What you see is what one can typically expect when fishing Eagle Lake, whether ice fishing, summer vacation season, and/or late fall through Andy Myers Lodge and its elite group of guides. Stay tuned – more filming is planned with John Gillespie ice fishing this winter and both a summer and a late fall trip/show. Jim Saric with Musky Hunter TV is excited to be back and scheduled to film a show in late July 2018. Other TV and media platforms and venues are in the works with names/dates soon announced for the 2018 season.
To help prepare for your trip and keep abreast of goings on, Guest Fishing Instruction Program Coordinator Steve Herbeck will be doing video clips of THE AML TIP OF THE WEEK for fishing the waters of Eagle Lake and NW Ontario as well as including video and instructional tips from the previous weeks action during the weekly seminars in the Lodge. These will be followed by AML’S EAGLE LAKE AREA FISHING REPORT. They will be only hours old when posted on www.Facebook.com/AndyMyersLodge, www.youtube.com/andymyerslodge, and our interactive website www.andymyerslodge.com.
2018 AML FALL MUSKIE HUNT WILL CONTINUE TO RUN TO THE 1ST WEEK OF NOVEMBER!
The demand for the late fall TROPHY MUSKY HUNT experience has been overwhelming and now with the new 100% winterized lodge, the three lodge accommodations, and four winterized cabins there is now comfortable capacity for up to 24 late fall guests in true four season accommodations. We can now go as late as we want regardless of the weather! With the trend in recent years of later and warmer fall seasons and the unparalleled potential for boating a Jumbo during the Trophy Muskie Hunt, the demand has reached more than can be accommodated without sacrifice of service and accommodating with specialized musky guides, so we are going to extend the hunt for the entire month of Oct into Nov. For the hardcore angler, this is THE TIME to catch your personal best. Be sure to call soon or email if interested in this exciting late fall fishing opportunity with limited availability and unlimited potential.
We encourage you to go to www.facebook.com/AndyMyersLodge and follow us through the off-season, as well as share, enjoy, contribute, like, and dream about next seasons adventure. Watch the exciting progress as the new lodge goes through its completion. Through the winter we will regularly be posting pics and video from 2017, special events for the 2018 season, as well as show date reminders, and what’s new for this season! There is never a bad time to call or email with any questions or concerns.
Again, Happy Holidays! Julian, Nicky, Calix, Paisley, London, Remington and the entire Andy Myers Lodge Staff wish you all the best. Look forward to seeing you in 2018 and thank you for a wonderful season and the memories of 2017!
