Ice Fishing by Dog Sled

Ice fishing lake trout BWCA One of the activities that is combined with a dog sled trip into the BWCA is ice fishing. Why? Clear cold water and good management have made for one of the finest fishing destinations in the country. Eat what you catch, and feel good about it, too. In the wintertime, the prized fish is the Lake Trout – the largest of all North American trout. It commonly grows to 10 lbs or more – and tastes great grilled over a fire, with plenty of Omega 3s and healthy fats to keep you warm at night, too. These fish spend the summers on the bottom of some of the coldest, deepest lakes. This makes them illusive, and hard to catch in the summer. Come winter, lake trout move up to shallower areas, are active all winter and become super aggressive in their feeding. This translates to Good Fishing with plenty of Action on the line. Minnesota's top native lake trout fisheries are in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. The best time to catch them is during the winter season. The easiest way to get to these remote lakes is via dog team. Thus, the dogsled-ice fishing combo trip is born.
