Beginner's Canoe Trip...Making it fun and doing it right.
Extensive instruction in canoeing, cooking, packing, camping, and fishing techniques is done slowly to give you the know-how for a successful camping trip.  We will not put you out until you are ready and all of your questions have been answered carefully.  You will have acquired those skills necessary for a successful wilderness adventure.  This is the most gratifying of all our trips because we are able to see your progress and growth in the great outdoors in which we played a major part.

Manitowish River Float Fishing Trip...Walleye, Bass and Northern Pike
This is an outstanding fishing trip.  Catch walleyes on leeches and crawlers.  Northerns on larger minnows, Rapallas and spinners.  Bass on everything - top water - Hulla poppers - jitter bugs and to add to your excitement there is always a Musky or two to rip up your lines and scare the hell out of you.  Float the river, camp out and cook fresh fish you caught that day.  Then move on to the next campsite and repeat the whole thing over again with all new territory to explore.  Take a fly rod along for great Bass fishing and good sized Northerns.
This trip starts across from the Hawk's Nest and ends up at Murry's Landing.  Complete outfitting for three days and two nights with a special briefing for rigging and fishing techniques.
