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.

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive

      Nailed the Crappies last night in 2-3 feet of water!!   They were all 9-10" and skinny runts for the length.   All were catch n release and topped off with a 18 64/65th " bass at dark!!  it was as close as 19" you could go with out being 19" LOL   What a rush on 4 pound test    Tried to take a pic and flash wouldn't work on phone      Cret

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.
