Services & Rates
Guided Multi-Species Trip
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. Most multi-species trips take place on Detroit Lake*, 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).

Already have your house in the Detroit Lakes area? Baxstar will move your house to a hot fishing spot in the area (this may result in moving your house to a different lake, depending on a variety of factors. Contact Baxstar to discuss your option).
