Moose Track Adventures Resort is the perfect vacation location for anyone who loves the outdoors with all the comforts of home. I took my family for the first time last year. We had such a great time that it is now our annual vacation spot. Jim and Joan were perfect hosts. It is clear that they are doing what they love.

I went back again later the same year for a fishing trip. I am a fisherman and Jim's knowledge of the area and expertise made the fishing experience incredible. On my first trip out with Jim, I caught the largest Northern Pike, Lake Trout, and Smallmouth Bass of my life and I'm no rookie. We ate Walleye as often as we liked, which was often. Jim can outfit for any weather condition with the best gear made. It was nice not worrying about what mother nature threw at us. He is also a great guy to hang out with...good stories and a lot of laughs.
Highly recommended!!!

This was my forth trip with Jim. Each experience has been excellent. I focus on fishing and Jim does the rest.
Equipment was excellent with up to date and serviceable equipment which allowed for all adverse weather, out of shape fisherman and other contingencies with minimum of difficulties when in the Boundry Waters/Quetico.
Jim provisioned our party with excellent food and in sufficient quanites for the start and completion each day.

Now for the most important part. I go to BWCA/Quertico to fish. Jim povides an excellent source of knowledge of the area on what to use and where to use it to locate and catch fish.
On this last trip, we fished Kawnippi and encounter others who had a difficult time bring in enough fish to make their worth while. Jim placed us on fish first evening: had a limit of walleye for dinner in less than 15 minutes. The entire time at Kawnappi Jim consistantly had us over fish. This was capped by a ~28# 41 inch pike caught by a part member. It was Jim's expertise in directing our novice companion on how to play this large difficult fish as well as positioning the canoe to actually land it on 6# line! This wonderful pike was returned to the lake so the rest of you can also enjoy him also. (I am sure Jim will have the fellow on his web site soon. Check it out).
Jim consistantly has well thought out plans and routes in BWCA/Quetico with suffient flexibility to take account of last minute changes weather as well as our thoughts and wishes.

There are no shortages of outfitters and guides in Ely and BWCA. I have enough experience to know Jim and MooseTrack are best for by desires and situations. I have a good time and catch fish.
I go to a great deal to plan my time to take these trips. I will not use someone who does not time to plan, outfit and place my experiences at a premium.
