Reliable snow machines allow us to fish the entire lake when snow limits travel by other means. No need for plowed roads.
Newer heated Otter Cabins and Hub shelters are the key to our mobility when temps are too cold for fishing outside.
Jigging and hole hopping are the mainstay on our excursions but we also employ tip-ups, sight fishing and other effective techniques.
The majority of our Walleye and Perch trips are done on Leech Lake, a world class fishery. For numbers of panfish we often explore smaller area lakes.
