About Us

Dear Friends, 


Brenda and I would like to personally welcome and invite you to partake in a

True North wilderness experience. 


     Since 1991, Brenda and I have spent countless days exploring, canoeing and fishing some of the wildest places in North America, from Alaska, Canada, and Northern Minnesota, to the 10,000 Islands area of Everglades National Park and are convinced that the wilderness of Northern Wisconsin does not take a back seat to any of them... especially if you know where to look!


     We have spent the last 20 years exploring the woods and waters of the beautiful Chequamegon National Forest in Northern Wisconsin. What we have discovered are some truly remarkable places, world class fishing, and experiences that we want to share with you.   


      We have put together an array of trip packages that only serve as a starting point and outline for your customized trip. Our primary mode of water travel is by canoe, because of its versatility and portability. It provides an authentic feel and allows us to maximize the fish catching experience.


      What does that mean?  Sitting at water level and having a trophy musky blow up on your lure inches from your face will get the heart pumping like nothing else. 


     Please check out our trip packages, give us a call, and we can discuss possibilities to provide an unforgettable experience for you.
