Houston’s Guide Service

If you want the opportunity to reel in a huge variety of freshwater favorites, including Trout, Walleye, and Perch, then come aboard Houston’s Guide Service for a fun and professional angling adventure! You’ll be exploring a variety of waters, including Chequamegon Bay and Lake Superior, alongside your experienced and friendly guide, Captain Jarrid Houston.

Capt. Jarrid grew up in the St. Croix Valley region of Minnesota – because of this, he’s very well-acquainted with freshwater fishing, and has a true love and respect for it. He knows the ins and outs of fishing on the Great Lakes, and uses this knowledge to take his guests to the hottest spots around. Whether you’re a brand new angler or a seasoned fisherman who wants to tackle these famous waters, he can’t wait to introduce you to the thrills of freshwater fishing.

You’ll be fishing from the comfort of a 18’ Lund aluminum fishing vessel. She can accommodate up to 3 guests, and is decked out with all the necessary safety and navigational gear. Your captain loves fishing with all kinds of anglers, so feel free to bring the kids along – you’ll be provided with life vests for them. Your vessel is also equipped with a wireless trolling motor, so you’ll be able to explore your chosen location without spooking the fish!

Capt. Jarrid offers his guests the opportunity to reel in a huge variety of world-famous freshwater species. Depending on where you travel, you’ll be able to hook anything from Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass to Brown Trout, Walleye, Sunfish, Perch, and whatever else is biting. You’ll be trying out a variety of techniques to land your catch, such as spinning, trolling, and jigging. Want to try something completely new? Check out Capt. Jarrid’s ice fishing listing!

You’ll be provided with top-notch rods and reels, tackle, and lures – all you need to bring along is a fishing license and warm clothing. Join Houston’s Guide Service and get ready to experience the Great Lakes at their finest!

Capt. Jarrid started guiding in 2009, but he's been around freshwater fishing his entire life. He grew up in the the St. Croix River Valley region of Stillwater, MN and Osceola, WI, so it's fair to say that he's well-acquainted with the species that call these freshwater locations their home! He has a true respect and passion for these waters, and has a proven track record of successful angling adventures, purely through plenty of hard work and time spent on the water. He loves introducing guests of all ages and abilities to these waters, and the incredible angling opportunities that they offer!
