Profish Guiding Service

Profish Guiding Service operates around the myriad of lakes near Cranberry Portage - Barbie Lake, Twin Lake, Neso Lake and others in the area, taking groups onto the water to target a real who’s who of freshwater fishing. Target Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, Lake Trout, Steelhead, and Walleye. All with an experienced captain and a well-equipped boat.

The boat in question is a 17’ Stratos. Though this boat may be small, it is perfect for getting two anglers out on the water in search of their dream fish. The vessel features a stealthy trolling motor for sneaking up on spooky fish. You can combine this with the boat’s downriggers to best troll for the murky depths below where the biggest catch often lurks. The boat also has GPS and fishfinder to make sure no fish stays hidden for long.

But there is more to Profish Guiding Service than just a great boat! Captain Tim has been guiding these waters for decades and prides himself on providing the highest level of service on his trips. From arranging accommodation and picking you up at your lodge to cooking you lunch by the lake and cleaning your fish to take home and enjoy, Captain Tim does it all.

With a choice of half and full day trips, a helpful and experienced captain, and a great boat just waiting to take you out, there really is no reason not to book. So grab your camera, grab your cooler and head out for a great day on the water!

My grandfather taught me fishing and the bush when I was a teen and I Never gave up the wonder of the wilds. I started guiding when I was in my early 20s but took it to a serious level when I built my own place in northern Manitoba when I was 37. I built, owned, and operated Kenanow Lodge on Kississing Lake. Now my son and daughter in law operate it. I moved 50 miles away and now guide on other bodies of water (Athapapuskow, Cranberry Lakes, and several other smaller lakes). I will still guide and supply boat on Kississing as well as other lakes. I absolutely love seeing fishermen catch fish and especially when it's a trophy. I believe in "Catch and Release" but you are welcome to keep some to eat. My favourite species is Lake Trout. We have Lake Trout, Northern Pike, Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, Rainbow Trout and Brook Trout, of which I am the "Catch and Release" World Record Holder for "The Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame".
