If you are looking for fast action with big hard fighting fish, this may be your trip. This is a very popular trip and everyone enjoys it. It is awesome for kids too! Northern fishing is fun and easy. No finesse fishing here. They bite hard and fight even harder. We usually troll for Northerns covering water looking for the aggressive feeders. Just kick back, relax, and hang on to the rod! There will be no doubt when you have a bite.
During May through July last year, we averaged about 20 pike per trip. I always tell clients to expect 10, but my personal goal is to land 15-20.
Come join the best pike fishing guide in Minnesota for a fun, action-packed trip catching big Pike!
On a typical northern trip on Lake Minnetonka, we catch 10 to 30 northerns in 4 hours. Our record is 52 on a 4 hour trip. During one full day, 8 hour trip on Lake Minnetonka, we boated 64 northerns and a bonus 48” muskie! Our largest Lake Minnetonka northern was nearly 19 pounds. Most northerns weigh between 3 and 10 pounds. We do catch many northerns over 10 pounds annually. Bonus fish include Bass and Muskies.
If you are looking for a Corporate Outing or to make memories with your family or friends, a northern fishing trip on Lake Minnetonka is always a big hit!
Last Summer (2018) during a Corporate fishing Event that my company hosted, we broke a personal record on Lake Minnetonka. In a 4 hour trip, with 3 clients fishing, my boat landed 49 Pike, 2 Bass and a 29 inch Muskie!! As we were nearing the 50 fish mark, I said lets get 50 landed. The owner of the company exclaimed I just had my 52nd birthday, lets shoot for 52! With 56 seconds left in the trip he boated the 52nd of the day. This was a company tournament which they won with 1005 total inches of fish!!!
A corporate event usually starts and ends at the docks of a restaurant or public access. The tournament style format is very popular. We provide everything including a custom weigh board for YOUR company. Give it a try!!
Northern season runs May through September. Prime time is May through August.
