Boulder Junction is the Musky capital of the world! There are well over 250 lakes in the area. Join Last Resort Guide Service for a chance to explore some of the beautiful nature the area has to offer!

Guide Steve Roginske has been fishing these waters since the 1960s, and he has over two decades of guiding experience. You can be sure that he’ll know exactly where to take you for a productive fishing trip.

Join him on his 18’ Skeeter performance boat powered by a 115 HP Mercury motor. It’s equipped with GPS and fishfinder units to make your fishing more successful. The boat can accommodate up to 4 people, and multiple people can fish at the same time depending on how experienced they are.

The lakes contain a good population of Musky, Bass, and Walleye. Your guide will provide fishing gear, as well as lures. He also has spinning rods, and he matches the type of fishing to the anglers’ abilities. He’ll be happy to clean your fish, so you can taste your own catch after the trip!

Guide Steve likes fishing with kids if they are interested in it. He provides them with special equipment, Musky rods that look like a Snoopy pole. It’s great for children since it casts on a push of a button. There are also life jackets for them on board.

Some lakes have bathroom facilities, so you can have a break at any time. Your guide wants to make sure everyone’s comfortable, so he is very open to any wishes you may have.

Boulder junction is a great area for a family vacation to make some great memories together. All you need to bring are some snacks and drinks, some hats, and you’re all set for an unforgettable lake adventure!

The elder guides asked me to get my guide license and help take people out fishing. I have been fishing all my life. I still meet with the senior guides and we talk about conditions and lake activities. My goal is to match a fishing presentation that will work for the customer to catch fish. I welcome beginner anglers as well as experienced anglers. We will choose the type of lake based on the time of year and the species we are fishing for.
