Full Day Guide Trip (up to 9 hours, includes shore lunch)
Half Day Guide Trip (up to 5 hours)
The above fishing guide rates are good for up to 4 anglers and include fish cleaning and vacuum packing. Fuel and bait are extra, and can be purchased where you are staying. You should plan on bringing your own drinks, fishing gear, and rainwear, but we can provide these upon request. Our shore lunches are legendary, and we now offer several options that can fit any special dietary needs.
You will be fishing out of smooth, dry riding Lund fiberglass boats powered by fuel-efficient Mercury outboards, running the latest Lowrance electronics and Minn-Kota trolling motors. Our deep-v glass boats have set the bar for guide equipment in our area, and has made our clients’ fishing experience the best it can be.
Booking a Trip
When you call us or email us, have a couple of possible trip dates picked out, as we may not be available for one of those times. We suggest booking as early as possible to get the best choice of guide dates, and many of our groups will book a trip for next year before they leave. We also suggest waiting to book your cabin until after you have secured your guide dates. We require a deposit of $100 per guide day in advance to reserve us for the days you want to fish.
Purchase your Ontario fishing license online and get it printed out before your trip.
If you’re not a resident of Minnesota, we don’t recommend buying a Minnesota license unless you definitely plan on fishing U.S waters as well. Minnesota fishing licenses are available online and by phone, as well as at area resorts.
You will be driving through Canada to get to the Northwest Angle, and you will need a U.S. passport or an equivalent form of ID whenever you pass through Canadian or U.S. Customs.
When departing or arriving at the Angle, you will be using a phone-in system (Canada) or the CBP Roam phone app (U.S) to report to customs. Have your vehicle license number and passenger IDs ready before reporting. We use the same reporting system on the days we do shore lunches in Canadian waters.
Canada offers an RABC permit for around $30 per person or family, which eliminates calling Canada customs each time you depart the Angle. If you are fishing for several days, this permit can be worth getting, but is not necessary.
Here is a short list of essential items our guests often forget to bring along: raingear, extra drinks, sunblock, tackle, and cash for any on-lake stops. Also plan on packing for warmer and cooler weather than what you are expecting.
The Northwest Angle is located 60 miles north of Warroad and Roseau, Minnesota, and about 100 miles east of Winnepeg. Use “Angle Inlet, MN 56711” when you are searching for driving maps or directions for your trip.
