Check out Red Pine Lodge in Sioux Lookout. I stay there in the cabins but they also do fly-ins. I think that John is flexible and will cater to any size group. www.fishredpine.com

Default trips for 2

Dave, while I usually go in the spring to a boat in camp with a group of 4-6, My BIL and I go every fall just the two of us. X2 with Mattice. We went to Luella Lake with them and had a great time. We have also flown in with Thunderhook right next door to Mattice and had a good experience. Check out the outfitters based in Nakina. All or almost all use Nakina Airways for transport and there is a great selection of lakes. We used Twin Lakes Outfitters and found them the be surprisingly affordable and quick to accommodate the party for the best experience. It might be great to just keep it to you and your son in order to avoid any potential drama living with strangers for a week. Just my opinion.

Fish On!

Dave; I can't help you on hooking up with another group for 2020 but I can recommend Clarks Resorts or Loon Haunt as two very good outfitters we have dealt with that will take a group of two.. Loon Haunt even has a lake specifically (Porrier) set-up for your type of situation. As others have mentioned sometimes guys come on this site to look for additional guys.


Best of luck on your search..

I am open to a fly-in trips as well as a Drive in or Boat in.

We are coming for Arizona so we would fly into Minneapolis or International falls. We can rent a car and drive from there. Any thoughts on this? Am I crazy? Obviously, we would need access to a rental boat as well

Thanks, Dave
Asking if you've previously fished NW Ontario for pike and walleyes.

What will you do with a 44" pike?

Just a thought of mine. You might want to check out Mike Berger posts on here. He takes his teenage son on fly in trips and is very experienced. He has even invited others to join him in the past.

If nothing else just reading and experiencing his stories will give you great insight on what a trip entails. His recent trip report of a boat motor conking out a rowing back to the cabin with make shift oars is quite a harrowing experience

https://www.canadafishingguide.net/

He has great videos as well

I did 3-4 flyin trips back in the mid-80s and caught some very nice Pike. I will catch his butt and release him for the next person to enjoy.

Update. Besides your silly reply, I have received many very informative responses and an offer to join a group of people that live in my town.

The internet is chock full of opinions and wanna be comedians. It also is a great resource for real people willing to help.
