Looking into a guided northern trip

4 posts in this topic

I'm looking into taking a guided trip on LOW. It seems like most of the guides are into walleyes, but I'd really like to catch a nice big northern and was wondering if anyone has had any good experiences or, would have any suggestions as to who, or where would be a good place to go.

Thanks

MN: Check out the Guide Listing on this site. Most, if not all, of the guides will go for what ever fish you want to catch.. If you have trouble there, call some of the resorts and ask them if they will target Northerns or Musky.. You will locate one of them to fulfill you wishes... Kaz

Thanks Kaz. I looked through the list and I've decided to go for muskie instead. I'm trying to get a trip set up with Doug Johnson for sometime this fall.

MN: You may want to give Bill Sandy of Black Hawke a call. He is at American Point on the Canadian side. His Parents previously owned Monument Bay Resort and he grew up fishing for Musky. I've seen him guide for someone who landed a 5o+ inch beauty. Don't have any phone number for him, but he's defiantly the "best in the business". I've fished with him and his father many times...

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
