Eric and I caught 100 fish after lunch on the 28th of June. In total over the three days we caught 530 fish -- absolutely amazing.

What amazing fishing you guys have. Friends here at home have all been amazed at what we actually catch. Thanks again for the amazing time.
Thanks so much for another great trip
Thanks so much for another great trip to the Old Post. You guys are great hosts. The weather was perfect, the fishing exceptional. The accommodation excellent. Your staff showed a real interest in making us welcome…I hope I am able to have a few more trips to your camp before I can no longer get in to a boat…THANKS AGAIN.

Dave was absolutely FANTASTIC!! without a doubt.
You and your staff did a great job for us. I have been to a few fishing camps and fly-ins over the years but none compare to yours and the experiences we had.
Our guide, Dave was absolutely FANTASTIC!! without a doubt.
The 4 of us like to catch fish and have fun doing it at the same time. We got both with Dave and we think he might have had fun too. Great laughs and kidding and some great boat to boat competition.
Dave made 3 great shore lunches, got us to hot spots even in tough weather and was a joy to be with every minute.
June 28th was slow fishing for everyone but we still got over 40 fish to the boats, June 29th we were over 130 fish to the boat (Dave helped me land a 40 inch Northern on a jig) and Dave guided us very well thru some tough water on the way back to camp AND then June 30th was the best day of fishing any of the 4 of us have ever had with 177 fish (boys boat won 89 to 88 but Dave had the ladies close all day and then Dave turned up the heat with a number of late catch “surges”), all with tons of laughs.

THANK YOU for having us and your exceptional hospitality
I can’t begin to tell you how much we enjoy coming to the Old Post every year. You, your family, and the entire staff make the entire experience very enjoyable. I wanted to drop you a note and say THANK YOU for having us and your exceptional hospitality… Maybe next year we will come up twice.
I had an absolutely wonderful trip to your camp and just excellent fishing… my recent trip to the Old Post was a remarkable experience. There is no doubt in my mind that I will return next year… In fact, I am already plotting to get one or more of my children on board with me.
Your philosophy and management of the resource (the fishery) that supports your business is ‘right on’. I firmly believe that, certainly to me, and hopefully other true sportsmen, the fact that you catch these wonderful specimens on single, barbless hooks only enhances the quality of the fish stories that we can tell.
Catching a monster pike was no doubt a thrill...
Thank you to your family, for sharing a piece of what you have made so much a part of your life. I can’t verbalize all the feelings that I felt while staying at the Old Post. There are just too many. Peace comes to mind first and foremost. Catching a monster pike was no doubt a thrill… It just went by too fast… With all the opportunities that I have experience[d] this one leaves ‘a mark’… The history of the Old Post has touched many including me.
I want to thank you both for making our stay at the Old Post so enjoyable. Your staff is the best and sure added to our positive experience. The chef prepared wonderful meals and we were well served. The boats were comfortable and clean and efficiently launched and beached by the boat crew. Out guide Neil was enthusiastic and got results as noted by the number of fish we caught. My best pike was 40 inches which is a good pike in any lake.
I have now been to the Old Post three times and I think it is better every time. You can Wendy are the reason everything goes so smoothly from Goderich by plane, to the van in Pickle Lake, to the boat ride to camp. I hope I am able to visit the Old Post many more times.

I would like to thank you for a wonderful trip.
The plane ride up and back was wonderful and John meeting us at Goderich both ways was a great gesture. Being in business myself, I hope I treat my customers as well as you did. The guides, Neil and Matt, went far above expectations to please your customers. They were great cooks as well. Shore lunches were tremendous. Your honesty policy is one that I think is great. I hope everyone treats that like gold and you continue with it. Your cook is fantastic with each meal being looked forward to each day. Your staff and Wendy were very courteous and friendly and looked after us very well. And last but not least was the fishing – it was better then I ever hoped for. The pickerel holes and pike spots that Neil put us in were unbelievable. Thank you very much for a great trip and a lesson in customer relations.
This was easily my best fishing trip ever.

The Old Post was a great place to entertain, relax, and catch a lot of fish.
We had a great time at the Old Post, and you and your staff were terrific hosts. I was traveling with a group of novice anglers, and even though we had limited experience, we all caught some great fish…both in quantity and quality. We all had a great time.
The fishing was fantastic, the cabins were warm and comfortable, and the meals delicious.
We had a great time at the Old Post. The boys – 9 and 11 – will never forget this trip, or the fact that they caught so many big fish, most of which went back in the water. I just love the conservation ethic. I really need to say something about Jonathon. He is a fine young man in so many ways. He was an excellent guide and shoreline cook, and he also took great pains to make sure our trip was safe and comfortable. Tommy, the 9 year-old, thought he was just about the coolest man on the planet. Tommy loves to fish, and Jonathon took great care to help him fine tune his methods. It was a joy to watch. Besides fishing, he’s world-traveled, thoughtful and articulate regarding many issues, and in all ways a great guy to sit with in a boat all day. We talked about music, travel, and politics, to name just a few of our topics. You’ve raised a good one, John.
Finally, Liam and Liz: fine young adults who bent over backwards to make sure our trip was enjoyable. I never felt for a minute that they were just going through the motions before leaving for the winter. It’s obvious that they love the Old Post and their jobs. So, in all ways, a huge success. We will be back, and I look forward to our next trip. You do it the right way up there!
