Carl's Fishing Guide Service

It’s time to get away from the concrete jungle and head out with Carl’s Fishing Guide Service for some much-needed lake fishing. Captain Carl has been guiding for over 2 decades and has another 2 decades of experience on top of that. He knows all the best places to take you for the most productive day in the water.

The day will be spent on his 19’ boat. There is enough room on board for groups of 3 anglers to fish comfortably for Musky. There can be groups of 5 when jigging for Walleye, Perch, Northern Pike, or Crappie.

Swap the kid’s mobile phone with a rod. Children of any age are welcome on board and will have life vests provided for them. They’ll definitely have a story to tell the kids back at school after a trip fishing Lake of the Woods.

Let the captain know in advance if you’d like to purchase a shore lunch from him. Otherwise, don’t forget to bring your food and drinks on the trip. Have a cooler in the car if you plan to take your catch home. The captain can recommend lodges close by that can cook your catch for you if you’d like.

Included in the price of the trip are the rods and reels. These are top quality, and won’t let you down, whether you’re reeling in your first fish or your hundredth. The captain will also prepare live bait for you before the trip, so more time can be spent fishing for your trophy catch. There is also fly fishing gear on board for one angler to use at a time.

You’ll need to buy a fishing license before the day. This must be purchased before boarding the boat.

Book a trip with Carl’s Fishing Guide Service today for an unforgettable adventure fishing on Lake of the Woods in Ontario.

They say your friends know you better than you know yourself, and that is true of Captain Carl's friends. Over 2 decades ago, they encouraged him to become a fishing guide. They knew his knowledge of the area was unsurpassable. Captain Carl is a local who has been fishing for years – he practically lives on the water. He is well-known in the area and has many returning customers. One of his highlights is catching 20 15" Muskies!
