Northern Pike Fishing: If you are an avid fisherman or have a friend, spouse or child that would really like fast-action pike fishing, this activity is for you. You can expect to catch fish as heavy as 10 pounds and occasionally up to 20 pounds. Your guide will help you choose the best fishing spot. No fishing experience needed and all fishing and fly fishing gear/tackle is supplied. Trophy Pike Fishing: Join your master guide and learn more about the Great Northern Pike. You will learn about its behaviour, its movements, as well as its likes and dislikes. Then practice the Trophy Pike Fishing techniques you learn and experience the challenge of catching the fish of a lifetime. Some fish are almost too large to hold while you wait a few seconds for your guide to take a photograph.
