North Country Guides, Big Thank You!!

8 posts in this topic

I just want to give big credit to Matt Breuer from North Country. We rented a shack from him for Pout Fest this weekend.

I feel like not only did we get unreal service, but I feel like I now have a friend in Bemidji. I have rented many sleepers in my days, and it seems like you get the here's you shack have fun. Not with Matt, he showed up with the shack, we went over where we should put it with a fully loaded GPS (tons of way points) and then went over techniques for that spot. I bet he spent a half an hour going over things with us. I have received less service on $3000 deer hunts. If you want a good guide in that area, you need to call Matt.

Thanks again Matt, we need to get you over to the apostles this summer for some trolling. (we'll take my boat for an off day)

By the way, hands OK, I cut a nerve but they said it might grow back with out surgery.

Oh Yeah,

Here is the report form pout fest,

I am having a hard time typing due to my left hand being bandaged. just got back from the ER, put a fillet knife 3/4 of an inch through the meet of my hand. I am hung over and we didn't catch a single pout. The truck has a new dent, the quad is trashed and we are 1 cell phone, 2 knifes, a fishing rod, and a pair of glasses shy of what we left with. (down the hole) So here is my pout fest report,

HOLY S&%$ I can't wait till next year!!!

      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

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
