You won't have to lift a finger, ever.  Guaranteed.

Baxstar is the only full service ice fishing outfitter in Detroit Lakes.  We take care of the hard work of staying on top of the fish, plowing, and setting up equipment.  We fill up the propane for your heaters, and top of the gas for your generators.  We drill your holes and make sure your house is warm.  We even offer equipment rentals and live bait delivery.  No other company works this hard for their clients.  Period.

Guided Ice Fishing Trips

Increase your chances of catching fish with the help of a guide!  Tailored to people that want the assistance of an experienced guide who knows area waters, these trips are great for 1 person, small groups or large groups.  Guided trips take place in the Detroit Lakes area, and you may fish out of a permanent house, portable house, or both over the course of your trip (you may have an opportunity to move from house to house in order to catch the most fish).  

4 hours:  $350 for 1-2 people, $50/additional person

 

5 hours:  $425 for 1-2 people, $62.50/additional person

6 hours:  $475 for 1-2 people, $75/additional person

8 hour:  $575 for 1-2 people, $100/additional person

*We typically put 5 people in an ice house, so there is an additional charge applied for the 6th, 11th, & 16th person in a group.  This fee covers the cost of using an additional ice house.
