When you hit the lake with the Sportsman's guides service, you're benefiting from over 200 years of combined experience. The Sportsman's Fishing Charter Guides know where to find the fish on Lake of the Woods, and they know how to navigate the sometimes tricky waters of the big lake. And with over 14,500 islands, 65,000 miles of shoreline, and nearly one million acres of water, it's a good idea to have someone on board who knows where they're going on the international waters of Lake of the Woods.
Minnesota Charter Fishing is so good we guarantee it!
This summer Sportsman's Lodge is guaranteeing you that you will leave with your limit of walleyes! 100% Walleye Limit Guarantee! All you have to do is fish with one of our charter guides for a minimum of two days. We guarantee you will take home a limit of walleyes or we will pay you $10 per walleye less than your limit. Fish eaten during your stay is counted toward your limit.
