Getaways: Angler’s Kingdom

Every now and then, anglers like to truly get away and take a trip outside of the regional United States to meet their angling needs. Each year, many fishermen jump on a plane with their gear, headed for the Florida Keys, Mexico, or Canada. While Canada may be at the opposite end of the spectrum from Mexico, climate-wise, it’s still a mecca among anglers looking for big fish and big fights on the water. Today’s Getaway takes us to the shores of Nungesser Lake in Red Lake, Ontario, where anglers can land monster fish while staying at Angler’s Kingdom.

Angler’s Kingdom is a small fishing resort that provides its guest with a peaceful, lakeside retreat. With accommodations for up to 40 guests and six cabins on the lake, Angler’s Kingdom is the ideal location for fishermen looking for a quiet, simple retreat. The resort has a four-room cabin that can sleep up to ten people, as well as two three-room cabins that house up to six, and a six bed and three bed cabin, each of which has their own detached bedroom for early risers or snorers.

Each cabin is equipped with a refrigerator, stove, sink, dishes, propane BBQ, and deep fryer for shore lunches. Also, each comes with full bathrooms, bedding, and the towels are changed weekly. Furthermore, guests have access to wireless internet during their stay. Guests also have access to the dining room, where the cook will prepare meals to preference on a flexible meal schedule, so food will be ready when you come in from a day on the water.

One thing that sets Angler’s Kingdom apart from other remote resorts is the availability of several 18-foot Lund boats that guests can use each day. Each boat is equipped with a 40 or 50 hp motor, trolling motor, live well, swivel seats, depth finder, and marine radio.

The waters of the 30,000-acre Nungesser Lake are infamous for being very dark, but also for housing vast numbers of walleye and pike. In fact, it isn’t uncommon for guests to catch over 100 walleye in a day. As far as pike are concerned, the lake is known for its trophy length fish, the longest recorded being 54 inches.

Aside from fishing, the region around Red Lake is rich with wildlife to observe, including moose, wolves, and bald eagles. For an afternoon break from fishing, guests can also head over to the Red Lake Golf Course for an afternoon on the links.

Fans of walleye and pike fishing will find that Angler’s Kingdom more than lives up to its namesake. It may not have all the bells and whistles of modern resorts, but its comfort, tranquility, and reputation for producing large numbers of fish have made Angler’s Kingdom a favorite Getaway for anglers looking for a comfortable, simplistic retreat.
