Aikens Century Club Rules

  • This is an individual achievement meaning that each angler counts only the fish he/she has reeled in.
  • All fish must be measured by a guide over the course of a regular guide day (8AM to 5PM - some exceptions for groups who have meetings in the afternoon but got back out with a guide in the evening).
  • The biggest four walleyes for each angler will be totaled up. If the total length is 100” or more, special recognition of the event will be marked on our website and in a log book.
  • Walleyes only. Pike and Lake Trout do not count towards Century Club membership.

This special recognition was spawned just like many other great ideas at Aikens… over a beer in Big Molly’s Bar! During the 2009 “Call of the Tundra” tournament, Julie, Pit, Pat, and a few guides were discussing the virtues of Aikens Lake with television fishing celebrity Dave Mercer while sitting around a table in Big Molly’s.

Dave was telling us that he not only considered Aikens to be one of the best trophy walleye fisheries he’d ever been to, but he had also never seen so many “slot” walleyes caught before! (We call all walleyes between 21-27” slot fish because they are too big to eat for shorelunch but not quite trophy size yet.)

The Manitoba Master Angler Awards are a great way to recognize anglers that find the true trophy ‘eyes in the lake (28” walleye or bigger). That said, it is quite a feat to catch a boatload of 25” walleyes in a day. This does not happen on just any lake, and we felt that since Aikens is a place where it is very possible for this to happen often the feat needed a special recognition as well! We started brainstorming ways to recognize these successful days of catching big beautiful walleye.

Thus the “Century Club” was born! The premise is that any angler that can catch four walleyes that total 100”or better over the course of a single day earns their spot with other great anglers in the Aikens Lake Century Club!

One of the coolest things about Aikens is you could have terrible fishing and have an awesome time there. Well-fed and well-served, plenty of beer to keep you warm. Tremendous service. Of course, the fishing’s great, too, but you have fun either way.

Incredible staff and amazing fishing. The accommodations are top notch and the food is first class. You won't find a better lodge in North America for pike and walleye fishing. The owners really know how to run this place. The memories made here are like no other.

What I love about Aikens? The ever present welcoming attitude that starts when you exit the plane and ends, well, never actually ends from what I can tell. The entire staff which is well selected and well trained, guides who make fishing fun and easy, the size of the lake (not too small for serious fishing and not too big for novices), the breakfasts, the shore lunches, the dinners, the awards handed out at dinner, the evening fishing with dock staff making sure your boat is ready, and the bar that gives you a chance to meet fun and interesting people to share a fishing story, a joke, or life story.

Our guide really listened to what we wanted to do and tailored our day specifically to us. To me, the shorelunch was the highlight of each day. The shorelunch sites are set-up so well in very scenic spots. You can watch the Aikens videos and read the website about the fancy cabins, and the food, and how great the fishing and the service is, but one thing you can't really appreciate until you're here is how beautiful it all is.

I’m an amateur rank fisherman and I caught a ton of fish, including a Master Angler pike. That’s what makes Aikens Lake so great, you can get guys like me that really don’t know what they’re doing, and you start to believe that you might.

My husband and my dad had always talked about going to Canada or Alaska, so when I got the idea to give them a fishing trip as a surprise gift I did about six months of research. Once I talked with Pit, I was sold. It was really a surprise to them. They were so excited, and they just had a wonderful time at Aikens. They enjoyed their dream trip, and I don’t think it will be their last time to Aikens.

Pit and his team have done a wonderful job of putting together the perfect gem of an outpost camp. We love going to the Lost Lake outpost because it provides you the seclusion and serenity without comprising the nice luxury-type components.

The Four Seasons of fishing lodges. What's truly impressive is that ownership is constantly improving the experience. Every year you arrive and notice improvements. I'm just back from our trip to Aikens with my son. In the last 15 months he's been to Copenhagen, Berlin, Estonia, St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, China, Venice, Croatia, Greece and Turkey – but said this was his favorite trip ever. He slept with his Aikens hat on last night!

Those young staff members make me realize that our future is in good hands. Every one of them are class act young people, such a joy to associate with when you see what is going on across the land. Thanks again for the great hospitality from you and ALL of the staff.

Truly an experience you'll want to relive over and over. This father-son-grandpa trip went from being a once in a lifetime experience, to an annual fishing trip! See you next summer!

Aikens is the perfect place for a family trip. The cabins are the best we’ve ever been in, the lodge is beautiful, and of course Pit and Julie are wonderful hosts.

My husband and I never go back to the same place twice, but we loved it so much at Aikens we knew by the end of our first week we’d be back. It’s just how well they take care of you there. They make you feel like you’re part of the family.

I’ve taken many large groups to Aikens and I always tell people beforehand how incredible the service is at Aikens. Every person has said to me at the end of the trip, “We believed you before, but I just can’t believe how good they treat you here!” One time Pit and Julie didn’t have the type of alcohol on-hand one of our guests was drinking, so they sent a plane out and got it.

I call it a 5-star hotel in the wilderness. It’s the neatest place we’ve ever been, it’s like fantasy island.

Each year we go somewhere as a family. We’ve been to Hawaii, Disney and many other places, but Aikens was one of the best trips we’ve ever had. Our trip was terrific, and my grandson loved every minute of it.

You think you’re at a Ritz-Carlton, you seriously get that level of treatment and amenities. Nobody in Manitoba can compete with Aikens for the quality of the fishing, staff, and facilities.

Trip number five and once again Aikens Lake out did itself. I thought it impossible for this wonderful place to get any better.

From the accommodations, to the staff and especially shore lunch, the entire experience at Aikens Lake is unmatched.
