What People Are Saying About Lake Trout Fishing in Minnesota

"Perch and more perch!"

Tracy Revoir fished with Michaud Guide Service LLC on October 20, 2019

We fished for 4 hours on beautiful Leech Lake and caught a bunch of perch. Captain Brad took very good care of us, moving around the lake to find the best spots. It was a great experience and we’ll be back!

"Great morning of fishing"

Debra Syring fished with Small Time Charters – Two Harbors on August 11, 2019

Kevin is a great captain and we enjoyed a beautiful and successful day on Lake Superior.


Gloria Harrison fished with Prime Time Guide Service on August 7, 2019

My 12 y.o. grandson and I fished on Forest Lake with Captain Ben July 25th and had a GREAT time. He caught several nice size northerns and and a few bass. He caught his largest fish with Ben and hasn't stopped talking about his experience yet. He was kind and patient and seem to enjoy us as much as we enjoyed him. If ever back up that way will definitely look him up again. Thanks Captain Ben

"Two half day trips with Kevin"

Katelynn Ogdahl fished with Kevin Joslyn Fishing on July 23, 2019

We went out targeting walleye and that’s exactly what we got! What a fun trip. Kevin is a highly educated guide. Lake Winnibigoshish one day and Leech Lake the next. Highly recommended him.

"Half Day Walleye Tour"

Joe Verich fished with Kevin Joslyn Fishing on July 28, 2019

Kevin took my wife and I on a 1/2 day walleye trip on Leech Lake. He picked us up promptly at our resort and we were fishing within 10 mins. Kevin has top notch gear and he knows the lake very well. We've been fishing Leech Lake every year for the last 10 years and have never had so much success as with Kevin. It was a truly enjoyable experience.

"Fishing with Nathan"

Penny Erchul fished with I'd Rather Be Fishing Charters on July 16, 2019

We had a great time fishing Lake Superior. We caught some Lake Trout and a nice Brown Trout. We would highly recommend this charter to anyone looking for an enjoyable fishing experience. We plan to do it again in the future and we will return to “I’d Rather Be Fishing” when we do.
