TRAVEL LIMIT POLICY & GUIDELINES

Because of the vast number of lakes in our area that offer great angling opportunities we ask that you limit the travel time. On half day trips travel will be limited to 30 minute drive from Ironwood MI. Now this should not be a problem since the number of top fish producing lakes within that 30 minute area are numerous. Full day trips are limited to a limit of one hour from Ironwood MI. Now we will travel farther but there will be an added charge for this travel. The amount will be determined by the distance traveled. Being blessed with such a great musky and smallmouth bass fishery in my backyard the distance traveled is not far. Now during the fall musky season we will travel to search out those big girls. Let”s talk about that later. Please call to discuss any questions about the travel limit. I will work with you on this subject.
