Day Trip Fly-in Fishing

Day-Trip Fly-in Package

Our day trips leave our float base in the morning, flying you to your remote lake for the day where you will find fully equipped boats and motors. Spend the day fishing a secluded lake abundant with fighting walleye, perch, northern pike, smallmouth bass or trout, your choice.

Your lunch can be either a shore lunch of freshly caught fish or a box lunch and sandwiches prepared by our kitchen staff. We’ll pick you up late in the afternoon and bring you back to our base around 5.pm.
