Boat Launches Busy with Anglers

It is hard to argue that June is one of the best months of the year to get out and find some success.

Fishing Opportunities in Area are Endless

We have been busy guiding everyday and couldn't possibly be happier for our clients to experience all that our area has to offer.

Angler Traffic Heavy Throughout Region

What a great start to the fishing season. Fishing is alive and well in the Northland.

Jarrid Houston | May 20, 2020

Busy Opening Weekend

Our success mostly came from jigging live minnows, but we turned fish on casting and trolling methods as well.

Fishing Openers are Upon Us

In a world of chaos, it's a darn good thing we can still go fishing.

Jarrid Houston | April 30, 2020

Prep Continues as Weather Holds in Cold Front

Most of our open water temps are still high 30s and low 40's and fish activity has been more the same. Many waters are still trying to shed there winter ice.

Fishing Prep in Full Swing

If you do plan to get out, best to research and make sure the area you plan to visit is open to visitors.

Thankful for Outdoor Opportunities

Even though we can get outside and enjoy some fresh air, the fishing opportunities are not plentiful.

Signs of Spring, Ice Fishing Done

This last week, we saw several signs of spring including the return of robins and, of course, the annual WI inland trout opener on the Bois Brule River.

Social Distancing and Fishing Go Together

Be safe out there, together we can all get through this. In the meantime, the best social distancing you're going to find is fishing.

That's a Wrap For the General Inland Fishing Season

Now is a good time to reacquaint yourself with a refresher of rules and regulations.

Chasing Late-Ice Fish

Lake Superior angling is getting a little bit more attention, especially for shorelanders.

Best Bite on Inland Lakes

Being mobile continues to be important. As well as fishing away from pressured fish.

Jarrid Houston | February 19, 2020

Still Plenty of Opportunities to Fish

The general fishing season is winding down, so now is the time to chase those last opportune game fish.

Jarrid Houston | February 12, 2020

Stay On the Move to Find Active Fish

We are now into what is really the last month of the regular fishing season. Further meaning, it's time to put the "pedal to the metal" on the last legal bites we can find.

Pretty Dang Good Fishing this Week

The weather has been a nice consistent pattern, and that has helped us figure out some good fish routines.

Varying Ice Conditions Across the Region

Fishing has been good on some days and slow on others. Cliché I know, but the truth.

Ice Conditions Continue to Improve

Most lakes around the area are now stiffening up nicely. We have even caught wind of some select waters starting to see vehicle traffic.

2020 Off to Good Start

With this last week's more consistent weather and better ice conditions, things are actually turning around for the better.

Rain, Mild Temps Hurt Already Tough Ice Conditions

With all the negative weather and ice conditions, we can only be optimistic that things will get better.

Ice Angling is Picking Up

The areas that are getting mass pressure from anglers are on slower bites, where the areas that have not been hit by traffic, are putting up good numbers of fish.

Facing Challenging Ice Conditions

It may be a long while until we are driving on our area waters. Lots of snow and slush pockets still exists on our inland waters.
