Tour focus options:

Northern pike- We have several great smaller lake nearby with good pike fishing. These tours offer the most consistent success. Fishing is generally in shallow areas casting to shore lines and weeds.

Walleye – Many of our local hot spots for Walleye are on larger lakes than our other tours and see some motorboat traffic. While fishing in a canoe mobility is critical. Expect to spend some time trolling live bait rigs. Success for walleye is slightly dependent on weather with overcast and slightly windy days being best.

Stocked Trout- We have several local lakes that are stocked with Brook Trout and Splake. These tasty fish are usually most active earlier in the season and offer fun action trolling or casting.
