During the summer months the majority of business at Ballard’s Black Island is made up of bookings from private individual parties. But, during the course of the season, we do occasionally have clients that lead or “host” a group trip, and all guests are invited to participate.

Our hosted trips are a ton of fun, encourage shared fishing instruction, and ultimately add more adventure to an already spectacular venue (Lake of the Woods)! This is an excellent opportunity to make new friends and meet future fishing partners.

Hosted trips also include custom catered packages with special group pricing incentives. If you are interested in signing up for one of these trips please know in advance that the same professionalism, expertise, and high level of service will be provided by the Ballard’s Black Island staff throughout your stay.
