BWCA Dogsled Guides

5 posts in this topic

I have some friends from out of the area who would like to do a dogsled/fishing trip in March. Can anyone recommend a good outfitter? They don't need someone to drill the holes and bait the lines, just get them to the lake as they have their own equipment.

Thanks in advance,

Steve

Steve, there are quite a handful of dogsled outfitters here. Kelly Murphy I know personally, and he gets full marks from everyone I've talked to about his laker trips. Bill Slaughter I believe is more of a pike guy.

It's getting a bit late to try to book a March trip, since that's a prime time for most mushers.

I'd check out the Ely Chamber of Commerce Web site at http://www.ely.org. They should have a list of contact info for mushers who you can call.

Any musher should be able to run out out and pick you back up at a designated spot at a designated time. Helps if you're in the middle of the week, but some mushers may still have March weekend openings.

I have been out with Bill Slaughter, it was a great trip for pike and he put us on several large fish. The experience is one that is never forgotten.

A over night camp out could be fun. Dogs bring out then come get you the next day.

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
