Operating out of Yellowknife, Canada, Great Slave Lake Tours offer some of the best fishing experiences in the world’s ninth biggest lake — and so much more!. Captain Shawn Buckley is a nature lover with over 35 years of experience under his belt. Not only will he do everything to put you on the hottest lake bite, but he will also make sure your adventure on the deepest lake in North America is educational and unforgettable.
He owns a 43’ custom built commercial fishing boat, spacious enough to accommodate up to 12 guests! It comes with a 125 HP Perkins Diesel engine, top-of-the-line navigational electronics, and safety gear. A flybridge, restroom, kitchen, and beds can also be found on board, along with live bait tanks and ice-boxes.
The captain will show you the best secret spots and do everything he can to help you land your dream catch. You’ll be targeting Walleye, Lake Trout, and Northern Perch and the captain will show you the most efficient techniques, from spinning, jigging, trolling to drifting and even fly fishing.
The captain loves having kids on board and teaching them about fishing and wildlife - don’t miss the opportunity to take them on a fun and educational trip they’ll always fondly remember. Great Slave Lake Tours also offer sightseeing and nature photography tours along with fishing, as well as “all you can eat” fish fry.
You’ll be supplied with the best professional fishing gear, food, and drinks – the only thing you have to bring is an adventurous spirit!
