My group of 4 have fished Highliner 3 times ,each year the service at the Lodge Was exceptional. Clean rooms and great meals . The fishing operation is highly professional,great boats,captains who want to put you on fish and work hard to make your trip a trip to remember. The cutting and handling of your catch and freezing guarantee you...

Very misleading experience. While the lodge is fine, the town is very remote with zero to do beyond fishing. The business cards left in your room from Steve and Jill portray a lot of services that are not available, such as wireless cafe, etc. While some of these services are available, they are not available at the lodge, such as...

The reviewer is correct. We have worse than third world internet, no cell phone service and there is very little to do in the boardwalk village of Pelican. However, saying that we mislead anyone in this regard is an egregious misrepresentation by the reviewer. I never said we are "Closest to the Internet!" or "Closest to a Cell Phone Tower!"...

First all the people are lovely - very nice, just attentive enough, your captains are all extremely skilled and knowledgable. I have a freezer full of lovely fish - the highest quality - your hand smells lightly of the sea after handling it - nothing like fish. But my salmon was not descaled - and descaling is a difficult challenge...

I am not sure why the reviewer felt compelled to give the Highliner Lodge such a low rating (Poor). He noted that he had a "freezer full of lovely fish - the highest quality ..." but the goes on to complain, "I have been robbed of one of the nicer aspects of freshly caught salmon." I don't know if his...

This lodge in my opinion is first rate. Top notch accommodations, rooms, food, service and especially the fishing. Beautiful location. Fly in on sea plane, you're met at the dock by either the owner (Steve - smart dude, piece of work and very funny)) or his staff. Fun to mingle with the guests. In the evening you stroll along the...

I count 52 emails between myself and the reviewer between October 4, 2013 and June 5, 2015. It was getting very difficult to place his group of two as we were booking trips very fast at that time and had very limited availability. In fact, three times the dates we offered him were taken by others because he procrastinated. In...
