Scott Edman NPAA #241
Scott is the ultimate “thinking man’s” guide, constantly experimenting with new locations, and angling presentations, helping pioneer many of the fishing patterns and presentations used by anglers on the Northwest Angle. Not content to just catch fish in an area, he needs to know why they are there and what other spots might be attracting fish. His 30+ years of guiding experience is one of the main reasons our guides are locked onto the hottest bites day after day. A day with Scott will make you a better angler, and you will have a great time as you learn the secrets that make his boat a fish magnet. A graduate of the University of North Dakota with a masters from St. Thomas, Scott also teaches Industrial Technology classes at Warroad High School.

Come fishing with Allen and he will ensure you a great time fishing and learning about Lake of the Woods!
