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, or large groups. 


Guided trips usually take place on Detroit Lake but we service other lakes in the area.  You can request a lake when you book your trip.  You may fish out of a permanent house, portable house, or both over the course of your trip.  Prices below are for Detroit Lake trips.  Additional plowing charges may apply depending on lake conditions on other lakes.


Guided trips include premium gear, including the latest ice fishing technology.  Your guide will also deploy tip ups to give you a chance at catching bigger fish.
