Cold and Fishless

posted Jan 10, 2011, 6:55 AM by Levi Ladd   [ updated Jan 11, 2011, 8:15 AM ]

It was about -20 degrees Farenheit and I was pulling up to the lake with four of my buddies who never fished before.  The wind was whipping, there were snow drifts and we were considering not going.  We looked over the lake and there was Levi at 6 am setting up our fishing traps.  His dedication and persistence was the only reason why we got out of the car that day.  The fact is, when we were sitting in that car, we didn't know it yet but we were about to embark on one of our most memorable trips despite the conditions.  We fished a hard 8 hours and didn't catch anything but we had a blast.  Levi is a great guide and a hard worker, he is worth every cent he charges and more.  Levi gave us some moose meat to go with the lobsters we purchased on the way home and we had a feast.  We booked a trip for early March this year and have decided to make this an annual trip, mostly because we had such a good time with Levi.

Fishing Wish

Thank you so much for going above and beyond to help us make Trevor's wish come true.  We greatly appreciate you volunteering your time to take Trevor and his father on a fishing trip.  Trevor had a wonderful time in Maine and loved fishing!  It is because of wonderful people like you that we are able to make dreams come true for children across Maine who battle life-threatening medical conditions.

Limit on Dries

I told Levi I wanted to use dry flies to catch native trout from a remote pond in northern Maine. He delivered and more. I caught my limit of 5 brookies by noon and had played many, many more throughout the morning. Levi had the knowledge of where to fish and what flies to use. He provided helpful casting techniques and we had a blast. We also saw 8 moose and boy were those wild brookies tasty! I would highly recommend MooseKat to anybody who wants to catch fish and explore Maine for what its all about.

Enjoyable Trip

Before we headed up for our Moosehead getaway, I decided to see if I could find us a guide that could get us out on the big lake for some fishing. I came across MooseKat and decided to call. Their fist advantage: Levi answers the phone - whereas some others don’t pick up, and simply want to call back at their convenience. He was cordial and accommodating, working the trip into our schedule even though it was last minute. The trip was very enjoyable, from the peaceful surroundings, to the generous lunch MooseKat provides, to the great fishing. We were able to catch 10 salmon, and each kept one for a great meal that evening. Levi really works hard at ensuring guests have the opportunity catch fish, and his high energy paid off for us. His hospitality and good nature were appreciated, and next time we come back to Moosehead, we’ll be sure to call on MooseKat again.

Ultimate Getaway

posted Jan 6, 2011, 6:55 PM by Levi Ladd   [ updated Jun 14, 2011, 11:34 AM ]

Talk about the ultimate getaway...Moosekat brought me into the heart of backwoods Maine where I not only saw plenty of Moose, but caught handfulls of fish. In fact, I caught the biggest togue (lake trout) of my life with Moosekat. I also got a chance to practice the challenging art of fly fishing on on some of the most surreal bodies of water in the Katahdin region. The camping was great, the fishing was fantastic, and experience was one to remember.

First Maine Salmon

posted Jan 6, 2011, 6:52 PM by Levi Ladd   [ updated Jun 14, 2011, 11:33 AM ]

I was looking to get away from it all and go out to the real Maine wilderness in search of some peace and quiet, as well as some of the great fishing the Moosehead region has to offer. Mr. Ladd really understood the fishing experience I was seeking. He took me on a great trip and got me hooked up with the first Maine salmon of my life! More importantly, Mr. Ladd took me to some spots to fish where the only thing I heard was the breeze through the trees.
