Portage into famous Basswood Lake. This is one of, if not the Northern Minnesota Fishing Lake . As the producer of Walleye over 14lbs., our state record Northern Pike 45lbs 12oz., and Small mouth over 6lbs., this lake has what most anglers are looking for - an excellent population of game fish as well as a legitimate shot at the catch of a lifetime. It is important to note that this lake is in a motorized portion of the Boundary Waters so entry will require a day use permit. These permits are reserved quickly so early reservations are a must! If you are interested, please give us a call as soon as possible. You will enjoy fishing out of comfortable (custom rigged for portaging) 14ft to 16ft boats. We take your comfort seriously, all our boats are equipped with seats and back rests.

Hike or drive into one of the more remote lakes found in the North woods. This is a great fishing adventure as you may be the only people fishing these waters. These gems go relatively unfinished throughout the season due to their isolated location and in some cases unknown fish populations. This is the trip for those who want to add a little excitement to their fishing experience.
