Waters Edge Guide Service

Owned and operated by Captain Zach Knuckey, Waters Edge Guide Service runs guided fishing trips in Duluth’s inland lakes. Zach will show you where the fish are, and also share tips and techniques to hone your fishing skills even further.

You will be aboard an 18’ Lund aluminum fishing boat that’s powered by twin 175 HP Evinrude engine. There’s enough space on the boat to fit three prospective anglers fishing in comfort. In addition to all the required safety and navigation gear, the boat is equipped with a live well for bait, and a wireless trolling motor for when you need to be quick and silent.

The local lake and river waters are full of Walleyes, Musky, Pike, and a variety of panfish like spring Crappie and Sunfish, so you can expect to be using a variety of techniques to get them all. Captain Zach uses custom-made rods, as well as bottom bouncers, jigs, and much more.

All the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need are included in the price of the trip, so you’ll just need to bring a valid Minnesota freshwater fishing license. Make sure to have a pair of polarized sunglasses with you and you’re all set to go on a fishing adventure.

Waters Edge Guide Service offers one trip per day with flexible departure time. Anglers of all skill levels and ages are welcome to join in the adventure.
