With Briggs Guide Service, you will be able to feel that ultimate connection with the outdoors and everything it has to offer. Leaving from the south shore of Lake of the Woods, Captain Tom Briggs will take you exploring these beautiful waters and help you create memories that will last a lifetime.

From bait fishing to cranking, Capt. Tom can do it all. From Walleye to Northern Pike, Bass, Sauger, Musky, Crappie, and many more – you name it, he will help you chase it. Capt. Tom is dedicated to the enjoyment of his customers and friends.

Don’t wait a lifetime for a moment like this. You won’t be birding, berry picking, mushroom picking, or sightseeing. Briggs Guide Service would rather take you catching the fish of your dreams!

Enjoy the wonders of Lake of the Woods with your family and friends. If you have a day or even a couple of hours to spare – join Capt. Tom on his 21’ Warrior boat. This is a stable fishing vessel with a 300 HP Suzuki engine and enough room for up to 4 anglers. The boat is fully outfitted with everything you need for a productive day of fishing!

Catch some fish, eat a fresh shore lunch, and let Capt. Tom do all the work. The boat, rods, reels, tackle, fish cleaning and packaging, and a lot of fun are included in the trips. You can even stay for a couple of days – contact the captain by scrolling down the page to get more information about fishing in Canadian waters.

About the Captain

Tom Briggs
Baudette, Minnesota, United States
Member since April 2016
3
Captain Tom Briggs is a Minnesota native. When he was 3, Tom moved to Gull Lake in Lakeshore and spent the next three decades exploring the beautiful outdoors of northern Minnesota. He learned about boats and what it took to care for various types of watercraft on the lake. At the age of 12, Tom landed a job at Koep’s bait shop, where he learned the ropes from the likes of big names in the Nisswa Guide League. Together with his lifelong friend Kevin Koep aka Fish Lips, they learned everything about the fishing world. Later, Tom expanded his knowledge base and included Alaska to his fishing repertoire. During the next “phases” of his life, Tom owned a resort and also worked for one of the family businesses before realizing that fishing was his true calling. The rest is history!
