Nelson Guide Service

Nelson Guide Service operates out of Beulah, ND, offering great freshwater fishing experiences. Captain Brandon specializes in targeting one of the best fighting and best-tasting fish around - Walleye. Fish on Lake Sakakawea for these amazing predators, with an expert local guide, who knows all the best places to catch the biggest fish.

The vessel you will be fishing aboard is a 20’ Warrior performance fisher built with reliability and fishing space in mind. It comes equipped with all the essentials you would expect for a great fishing trip: GPS, fishfinder, a trolling motor, and high-quality fishing tackle.

You will be able to employ a variety of techniques to target the famously wily Walleye. Choose between bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, and jigging, with both live bait and lures provided. Wherever the fish are, and however you like to catch them, you will have plenty of options to work with.

Captain Brandon has spent his whole life fishing these waters. The joy he gets from guiding is plain to see on every trip, and he is always happy to go the extra mile. Whether that means driving you from Beulah to the lake, cleaning and filleting your catch, or arranging accommodation for you at a local hotel, he will do what he can to make your day that little bit more special.
