If you’re ready to love fishing in Rufus, we’ve got you covered with Premier Guide Service.

Walleye, Sturgeon, and Salmon are in the cards if conditions are right. On these trips, it’s common to troll.

Any fish within the legal limit are yours to take with you. Plus, you can have your catch cleaned. Talk about bang for your buck!

Premier Guide Service is a kid-friendly charter service, so bring ‘em aboard and get the kids hooked while they’re young! If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, be sure to ask if there’s one on board. Snacks are never a bad idea so that nobody gets grumpy on an empty stomach!

Capt. Jeff operates a 26’ Performance fishing with room for 6 passengers. It comes with all the essentials no fishing machine can run without.

Your captain will provide rods and reels, along with lures. Live bait is on offer, but be sure to ask about it ahead of time, so you know if you’ll be catching it yourself.

You’ll need to purchase a local fishing license before the trip. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species may be off-limits or require a special tag, so make sure you know what to expect.

A few items you’ll want to bring include sunglasses, sunblock (non-spray), bottled water, a hat, warm clothes, rain gear (recommended), and something to transport your fish home, cooler, or container.

If you’d like to bring other drinks, just ask. 

Now’s the time to experience fishing in Rufus for yourself with Premier Guide Service!
