Join one of the numerous Minneapolis fishing guides and discover the incredible angling opportunities on offer in this great city. 
 
Fishing in Minneapolis is pretty much a “whos-who” of the country’s favorite freshwater fish. From small Crappie and Sunfish, to delicious Perch, all the way up to tough-fighting Bass, Walleye, and Musky, there’s something for everyone. Come year-round and get your hands on these prized creatures, and you’re sure to head home with a treat. 
 
No matter when you visit, Minneapolis fishing guides will have something for you. Choose from a half day trip at whatever time of day suits you, or spend the full day on the water practicing your skills. When winter hits, a guide will be waiting to take you out on the ice for anywhere from 4–8 hours, with all the equipment provided. 
 
Hit up the rivers in the city, or explore the backcountry of the Mississippi in the east of the city, and you can cast from shore, aboard a boat, or in a kayak. Hop aboard a charter to explore the lakes in the city and Lake Minnesota, or spend your trip in an ice hut during winter. With so much on offer, there’s no reason for you to miss out on the incredible fishing on offer in Minneapolis! 

Rules & Regulations

Every angler looking for some freshwater action in Minnesota must have a valid MN fishing license. Grab yours online from the DNR website, or head to any licensed vendor and sign up. Other than that, your professional guide will make sure you stick to the state’s fishing seasons and bag limits.

January
There’s plenty of action to keep warm on the lakes and streams around Minneapolis, with incredible ice fishing opportunities and thrilling winter festivals. Take to the ice and see the city at its best.
February
What better way to warm up in winter than with an exciting fishing adventure and a hearty treat for dinner? Get out on the ice and land your fill of delicious Pike, Perch, Crappie, Walleye, and more.
March
As the ice begins to melt, boats start making their way out onto the Chain of Lakes, and the larger lakes around Minneapolis. Get ready to start testing your casting skills once again, before the season kicks off. 
April
While the season may be closed for some of the lakes’ most sought-after creatures, there’s still plenty of action to be had when warming up for summer. Target Perch, Crappie, Sunfish, and many more. 
May
Get ready to remember why you fell in love with fishing, as May brings with it some incredible action. Walleye and Pike season gets going, and you can even land a few Bass before the month is over.
June
The fishing mirrors the weather, as everything is red-hot in Minneapolis come June. Make the most of Musky season, along with Walleye, Pike, and Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, for a real test of your skills.
July
Book in advance to avoid disappointment with thousands of tourists flocking to the numerous lakes around Minnesota. It’ll be worthwhile, though, with plenty of Musky and Bass action to keep you going.
August
Combine your fishing trip with a visit to the Minnesota Fringe Festival. Minneapolis comes alive for 10 days of cultural events, and you can escape the hustle and bustle with a day out on the water.
September
As the crowds start to dwindle, the cool waters attract some prized fish to the shallows. Target a range of Bass, Crappie, Pike, Perch, and many more, on what promises to be a fun-filled day out. 
October
Wrap up to protect against the chill, as fall takes over Minnesota. Musky is the number one prize on the lakes around the city, while catch-and-release Bass action will also keep you on your toes. 
November
Rush out at the beginning of the month and make the most of your last chance to get out on the water, before settling in for ice fishing season. Walleye, Perch, and Pike reign supreme in winter, so get your fill.
December
Everything you need for a productive day out awaits you with a professional Minneapolis fishing guide. Settle in for a fun day of fishing with your nearest and dearest to land a warming treat for dinner.

Brian is extremely knowledgeable about the lakes he guides on. He is very easy and fun to talk with! He made an ethical decision to not target certain fish as to not harm the fish with the water being as warm as it was, but had us catching fish the whole time we were in the boat! If we didn’t live in Kansas we would use Brian’s guid services consistently, and we will definitely hire him again next time we are in Minnesota.

The weather can be unpredictable but rain showers usually last only an hour or less. Mosquitoes can be a nuisance. There are lots of fish. The lakes and parks are very clean.

If you are looking for a great fishing guide, who is not only an experienced angling expert, but also kind, funny, and knows about local events and venues, look no further. You will find that Captain Brian of Muskies & More is all of that & more. The fishing trip was a birthday gift for my son. He caught 4 fish & had the time of his life. We will be fishing with Captain Brian again and highly recommend that you do too.

Thank you for providing the boys a great evening of fishing. Good coordination on fishing conditions: we tried fishing couple of weeks ago, but winds were not cooperating and rescheduled to last night. Same for last night, rain was in forecast and he called early to allow us to decide. We pressed on and could not have had a nicer evening.

Captain Brian introduced me and my parents to fishing on Lake Minnetonka and it was an excellent day fishing! We chose a weekday morning after Labor Day and there was hardly anyone else on the lake. I had mentioned wanting to catch a northern pike, and Captain Brian delivered! We got a juvenile muskie as well. He definitely has a lot of joy and enthusiasm for fishing and it gives the trip a positive vibe.

My husband surprised me with this fishing trip for my birthday. Brian was fun and personable and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a fun fishing trip. Mu husband caught a large mouth bass that was huge and i caught a small mouth bass and according to Brian those are rare in the lake. I think he was making me feel good for my birthday and it worked. I can't wait to do it again.

I was in town training for a few weeks and decided to take the family fishing, so after finding FishingBooker I decided on Muskies and More Guide Service. Captain Brian was very professional as well as knowledgeable about the lake and species in it. He had a great personality and made sure my son and wife had a great time. I would recommend his service to anyone and look forward to hopefully using his service again next time I’m in Minnesotta.
