Muskies And More Guide Service

Muskies And More Guide Service invites you to explore everything that the Twin City Metro area has to offer. Spend your day checking the bite on Lake Minnetonka, head to White Bear Lake or Lake Independence, fish Lake Riley and West Rustle Lake or enjoy your day on Mississippi River Pool 2 – the opportunities are limitless!

Your guide, Brian Koshenina, has over four decades of fishing experience. He is a patient angler who enjoys fishing with seasoned veterans and families alike. Everyone is welcome to join in the adventure!

Brian’s goal is to catch fish but also relax, have fun, and make some fantastic memories. He will greet you with a warm welcome on his 2011 18’ Alumacraft Navigator boat 15 minutes before the trip. You will be guided through the basics and sign a release form. Then, the boat’s 115 HP Yamaha engine will power you to the hottest grounds in the area, and it’s Fish On!

The list of your potential catches will include Crappie, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Bluegill, Walleye, Musky, and Northern Pike. All the necessary and up to date equipment will be provided for the trip, including top-notch brands like Abu Garcia, Jig-A-Whopper, Hook Look Musky Rods, Mitchell, Daiwa, Shimano, Snyders Lures, and more.

Hi, I'm Captain Brian Koshenina, owner/operator of Muskies and More Guide Service. I started fishing at the age of 4 and haven't stopped since. From tournament fishing for Bass, Walleye and Musky to Salmon fishing in Alaska and shark fishing in California, my passion for fishing runs deep! I believe in family, fishing and fun. Fishing is "therapy" and what a better way to enjoy a day on the water than letting me do all the work while you relax and catch fish!
