Pj's Guide Services – Ice Fishing

Invite the whole family on a fun ice fishing adventure and get ready to experience the great outdoors with Pj’s Guide Service! Your guide for the day, Pj McDeid, has over 40 years of experience fishing and 25 years of guiding. He caters each trip based on the customer’s preferences and level of experience and all ages are welcome aboard.

The lakes surrounding Minneapolis are well-known for its brimming waters during the wintertime. Ice fishing is a popular activity in the area and fun for the entire family, including children. Pj genuinely enjoys teaching kids how to fish and encourages them to get started as soon as possible!

You’ll meet at the pre-determined location about 15 minutes prior to departure and head out to the fishing spot, either by foot or vehicle. Once you arrive, the holes will already be pre-drilled for you, so you can get right to the fun stuff. Pj will provide all the necessary equipment, including tents, heating, and top-quality rods and reels.

You’ll stay warm in the hut while you fish, so you don’t have to worry about cold fingers. You’ll be targeting a range of freshwater species, including Walleye, Northern Pike, Musky, Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, Yellow Perch, Sunfish, and Crappie.

At the end of your trip, Pj will offer to clean and fillet your catch so it’s ready for the grill once you get home. What better way to break the winter blues than a successful day of fishing, followed by rewarding yourself with a delicious meal?

All you have to do is pick up a fishing license before your trip. You can purchase one online or at a local retailer or bait and tackle shop. Feel free to bring some snacks and drinks as well and keep them in the captain’s cooler.

Don’t just wait for the winter to pass. Make use of it and go ice fishing with Pj’s Guide Services! Start planning your adventure today and get ready for a unique experience in Spring Park, MN.
