Minnesota Fishing Guide Service offers you an ultimate freshwater fishing adventure on the waters of world-famous lakes. With over 28 years of experience, their Captain is a friendly and hard-working professional, who loves teaching people various fishing techniques. Each trip will leave you full of exciting memories and hands full of fish.

The vessel is prepared to take up to 5 persons aboard. It is a 21 ft Lund boat, powered by a 200 HP Mercury Verado 4 Stroke engine, equipped with a GPS, a VHF radio, a weather radar, and a Humminbird fish finder. The Lund is children friendly and wheelchair accessible. It features an ice box, a wireless trolling motor for optimum performance, and an anchoring system.

On a half-day, a ¾, and a full day trips you will try to go for the Captain’s specialty – Walleye, as well as Crappie, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Musky, Pike, and some more. After your trip, the fish you catch can be cleaned and filleted for you to take home, or eat during lunch on the shore.

Novice or professional, you will be able to find a fishing technique that suits you best: from drift to bottom fishing, from heavy to light tackle, popping, spinning, and many more!

Each package includes rods, reels, lures, tackle, and live bait. Apart from that, you will also be offered snacks and drinks – no need to worry about getting hungry!

Sail in comfort with Minnesota Fishing Guide Service and satisfy your fishing needs.

I have been fishing since I could walk. I have been fishing professionally for 28 years due to my experiences with my family's like living life and resort ownership. As for my opinion, there is no such thing as a preferred method of fishing. Whatever the fish want along with the abilities of my guests dictate what style or strategy we will be using. Off the record, I do enjoy fishing artificial baits when possible. I thoroughly enjoy my job as a fishing guide and have no intention to do anything else. After 5,000 trips under my belt, I've got what it takes to find the fish!
