Pool 4 of the Mississippi River, spanning over 40 miles from Red Wing MN to Alma WI includes some of the best fishing you will find in the Midwest. However, with that much water, if you are not familiar with the area, it can be hard find the bite. Our guides have the knowledge, experience, and tools to get you on the fish quickly. All fishing gear, bait and tackle is included. All you need to do is bring any extra clothes you may want, sunscreen, snacks, and beverages.

Guides generally utilize a Deep-V hull aluminum boat, which is the classic boat for fishing Walleye’s on Lake Pepin. All of our V-Hull guide boats have a center console with sun/rain covers, which provide some cover from wind, rain, and sun. We do also have Pontoon Boats that we can use for guided trips, but we only use Pontoon boats if our customers specifically request them. In some cases people just want the extra comfort of the pontoon boat, other times they have more than 4 anglers and want the space. Let us know when you book if you prefer a pontoon boat.

Our Deep V boats are equipped with current electronics, including Humminbird Mega SI/DI Imaging and LiveImaging. We also utilize Minn Kota trolling motors with Spot-Lock, which is the best way to stay on a hot spot. Pontoon boats will not have all the electronics. Fishing rods and reels vary based on the species being targeted, but we tend to use a lot of Daiwa and Shimano Rods and reels, often paired with Fenwick rods. In most cases we have the combos we use available for sale, so you can take one home if you love it.

Our guide will contact you the day before your adventure to give you information on the current bite, and to set up a meeting place and time. Starting time can be selected when you book your trip, but can be adjusted anytime up until your trip. Our trips can start as early as 7am and end as late as 7pm. If you want to go more than the 7 hours allocated, we can extend your time at the prorated hourly rate.

Must be 18 to make the reservation. All participants must sign a liability waiver prior to boarding.
