Cast & Blast Packages- Upland / Fishing Combo

Cast and Blast upland hunts

New for 2022 is our Cast and Blast Package! Experience the ultimate day outdoors with this upland/ fishing combo package! Enjoy our Orvis and Shooting Sportsman Endorsed upland hunting where you will hunt behind the finest bird dogs and guides in the country! After a gourmet lunch, you’ll head to the majestic Mississippi River in search for trophy catfish with “Captain Catfish”! You might just see the ghost of Tom Sawyer or Huck Finn along the bank in the late evening haze!

 


Cast & Blast Package Details

The river has absolutely beautiful views!

This new excursion pairs perfectly with a half-day of upland hunting in the early season or late Spring! The temperatures in early fall and late spring are perfect for both upland hunting and fishing on the river. Normally the mornings are cooler, perfect for an early morning stroll in the upland fields behind some of the best bird dogs in the nation!

After enjoying a gourmet lunch, you’ll head to the river with “Captain Catfish” and fish for trophy catfish! The Mississippi River is known to produce some of the best catfishing in the world! Catfish species you could catch include the legendary flathead (known for their pole-breaking fights!), channel cat, blue cat and yellow-bellies!

We will be offering this combo fishing/ upland package during the month of March and September through the third weekend of October.

*The world record catfish was caught just downstream of the lodge! It weighed in at 124 pounds!!

I have been on guided fishing trips in Alaska, Canada to Florida and many places in-between. When Captain Catfish took my Dad and I fishing on the beautiful Mississippi River it was one of the best fishing experiences of my life.” – Gary Harpole
