If you’re interested in fishing, rather than worrying about where the fish are at, cleaning camp, cooking, etc., consider hiring a guide for you and everyone else in your party.   We have two and three-seat canoes so
it’s also an option to hire 1:2.   I guarantee the fish caught per fisherman ratio will exponentially increase with a guide who knows the waters at the stern. 



July 31 – After the Storm

Some of  you may be aware of the horrible storm that Ely, the BWCA and Canada’s Quetico Provincial Park experienced on July 20th.  I was actually out with a party;  we were happy when daylight came.  There were trees down everywhere and, as we paddled the seventeen miles back to canoe ramp, we were thankful that things hadn’t been any worse for us.

We had a lot of trees down at our cabin; happy to say that our house, cars and other structures were spared (as well as the Triangle Lake and Blueberry Hill cabins).   I was happy to be off a few days to clean things up at bit.

I’m off tomorrow with a group who will be happy to hear that the fish are biting….




July 14, 2016

This week is a ‘bi-week’ from guiding.   Cecilia and I closed on Log Cabin Hideaways, an established primitive log home business, yesterday.  It’s another way for people to experience the northern Minnesota wilderness without camping.  Fall and winter are actually business than summer, although the cabins are open the majority of the year.  It’s about fishing, skiing, hunting and hanging out with family and friends.
