Come on up north and catch more fish than you can imagine. With over a million acres of true wilderness and thousands of lakes to choose from, we have undoubtedly the best smallmouth fishing in North America.
Wilderness walleyes? Nothing beats the reward of a little extra effort to get to those “secret” fishing holes. Experience an ‘age-gone-by’ traditional campfire cooked shore-lunch with freshly caught walleye. Then see some pristine waterfalls, northern lights or pictographs, maybe a moose? Northeast Minnesota has some of the best wing shooting for Ruffed and Spruce Grouse in the nation. Endless trails and solitude.
