I would say budget, type of trip and how many in your group. First you need to decide on how
much your willing to spend including travel, hotels, meals , etc. Then you need to decide what type of trip you want to do. Drive to, boat in, fly-in. American plan lodge, outpost or a housekeeping cabin? Then you want to decide on the size of the group. We have found that 4-6 works well. 8 and above becomes work. Once you figure that out, start calling outfitters and get more info. The fun has just begun!

I have sacrificed some of the more well known lodges and fisheries due to things like cabins right on the water, good dockage, drive to camps, clean and comfortable cabins, top notch camp owners, cost, and distance from home. Lots of things to consider......

What general location are you coming from and travel to and what do you want to fish for? Walleyes, Pike, Musky, Lake trout, etc?? Also what others pointed out. Drive to, fly in, etc?

Other than the obvious answers of price, location, trip type, etc.; I would go to one of the large sports shows in a major city near you. Shows in Minneapolis, Chicago, Milwaukee, Kansas City will host 100 or so outfitters and lodge owners. You can talk to them, ask your questions and compare them head to head.

If you want something for this year post some more details about what you would like to do and what area you would like to visit. You will get lots of resort recommendations.

A lot of us enjoy the amazing fly in fishing so widely available in Canada an then go economical by cooking our own meals, non guided at outpost camps. Just a thought

Spend a lot of time doing your research online and try to narrow your search down to a handful of places if possible, identifying the criteria that are the most important to you. If you are having trouble deciding between the finalists, come back here and ask for feedback and recommendations.
