"We've been coming to Budd’s Gunisao Lake Lodge for more than 15 years, and now we're bringing our children and grandkids to this magical fishing experience. Having fished in all the other Canadian Provinces, as well as Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio, Florida, Brazil, Costa Rica, and Mexico, there's no doubt that Budd's is simply the best---no other lodge is even close!!

When it comes to premier fishing, fresh shore lunches, tasty meals, great lasting memories and a family friendly atmosphere – you can bet we are all in at Budd’s!!!"
