Anyone know a Chad?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone knows a "Chad" who rents sleepers. Me and some friends are coming up there the first weekend in february. Just wanted to get some input on it. How are his shacks, etc. What are people getting the slabs and walleyes on? Thanks for any and all info.

Yeah, Chad Benson. He has a website. Chadsguideservice.com I've seen him on the big pond every time I've been up there. Good Luck.

He's a good guy and will do his darndest to put you on fish. I've had a couple groups in the cabin that have used him and had good luck. I have recommended him and will continue.

Chad Benson and I are pretty close, He was one of the best men in my wedding. He is one of the hardest working guides I know. I enjoy every min on the water spent with him! His sleepers are very nice!

You will not go wrong with Chad!!

He saved us two years ago when we booked with another place that could not keep up their end of the bargin and we were stranded. We have used him the last two years and will be heading up again in three and 1/2 weeks and can not wait. He has nice sleepers and checks on you often! Enjoy!

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
