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...

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
