Our Customers Say It All...
The Groth Family has been coming on fishing trips with Thunderhook for well over a decade. Hear what these guys have to say about the fishing and northern hospitality that keeps them coming back for more... summer after summer! The Ontario Fishing here is truly as good as it gets. While fishing in the Wabakimi Provincial Park you can catch walleye and northern pike by the hundreds. In fact, its just like you hear in those fish stories told around the campfire!
Our airbase at Thunderhook is setup for comfort before the departure of you flight in to the remote Wabakimi Provincial Park. The Thunderhook airbase offers a beautiful office complete with Wi-Fi, big screen satellite TV, telephone with unlimited long distance, continental breakfast, and other features. If it is your wish to spend the evening at our airbase prior to your flight out the next morning, you may want to rent one of rooms in our 6-unit motel. There is plenty to do at our airbase whether you wish to sit in the gazebo by the lake, fish off the dock, or enjoy a cool beverage while anxiously awaiting the fly-in fishing trip of a lifetime!
New 16FT Lund SS-V Boats
Our inventory of boats at Thunderhook (with the exception of one of our remote outpost camps) is currently brand new. We chose the Lund SS-V model because of its suitability for outpost fishing trips. This 16ft model is the perfect combination for our Yamaha motors. These boats also handle very nicely on the big water when it’s rough. It is possible that our aging fishermen like these boats the best as they offer a split console walk-through center… gone are the days of climbing over all of the swivel-seats!
New 15 and 20HP Yamaha Four-Stroke Outboard Motors
Yamaha Four-Stroke Outboards are easily the most reliable outboard motors on the planet (in our not so humble opinion!). We have found that the better shape our boats and motors are in… the better the fly-in fishing trip! Our entire fleet of Yamaha motors is updated annually to eliminate hassles and other hang-ups one could experience while on his or her fishing trip. All of these motors are electric start… there is no need to “pull and pull” until your back hurts on these finely tuned motors.
Turbo-Prop Air Service
Our guests at Thunderhook are provided with the finest seaplane air service anywhere in the world. West Caribou Air, our air service partner, offers an entire fleet of De-Havilland, Cessna, and Noorduyn aircraft. These aircraft are maintained to the strictest of government standards and all have top safety records.
Last But Not Least… Great Fishing!
The Wabakimi Provincial Park offers some of the greatest freshwater fishing anywhere in the world. This area is pristine, untouched, and ready for the ultimate adventurist. The primary catch in the Wabakimi is Walleye, Northern Pike, Lake Trout, and Brook Trout respectively. Sometimes we tell our guests that the hardest part of a fishing trip at Thunderhook is baiting the hook!
