Mississippi River Fishing Guide Services
We are second and third Generation guides that have honed their skills by spending countless hours on the Mississippi River and Lake Pepin. Thus, we are one of the longest running guide services on the Mississippi River for Walleyes, Northern, Bass and Catfish. We guide from Red Wing, MN to Winona MN which includes Pool 4, Pool 5, Pool 5a, and Pool 6. Our main goal is to give you memories for a lifetime. Whether you are in the boat with Captain Jarrad or Captain Lee you will receive an educational experience you will never forget. The Mississippi River changes daily and sometimes hourly, so we want to teach you how we adapt with the daily fluctuations and season of the river. When you are done with your trip we hope that you will have learned enough that you will feel comfortable navigating or fishing on your own with the knowledge you have learned from us. When fishing with us you will share the beauties of nature with all the creatures, great and small, that revolve around the Mississippi River and Lake Pepin.
