Michaud Guide Service LLC

If you are after a family-fun day on the water with a great view, give Michaud Guide Service a try. A family run business with over three decades of guiding experience on Leech Lake, the company offers exciting fishing adventures you won’t soon forget.

Catch your keeper fish by pitching jigs in the shallow weeds. Go for Walleye or Northern Pike and land a healthy dose of Yellow Perch. Depending on your preferred style of fishing, you will be able to try your hands at light or heavy tackle fishing, trolling, jigging, spinning, or drift fishing.

All of this will happen aboard a 20’ Nitro boat, fresh on the water in 2021. This spacious craft can accommodate up to 4 anglers and can cruise at a top speed of 39 knots thanks to its 200 HP Mercury engine. The boat is rigged with a GPS and a fishfinder, along with a wireless trolling motor and a livewell tank, which will be loaded with bait to get you ready for the action.

All trips on Leech Lake come inclusive with rods, reels, tackle, live bait, lures, and a complimentary fish cleaning service. You will need to bring your own drink and snacks and purchase a valid fishing license before the trip.

Feel free to bring your family, friends, or colleagues with you. Have a father-and-son day on the water or enjoy a family outing. Happy fishing!
