If you love to catch walleye, you’re in the right place. Charter fishing for walleye on Lake of the Woods has many advantages. The biggest one is that you don’t need a boat or gear. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned angler, just show up, hop on a boat, and catch fish. Charters are also perfect for a group or family trip. And our boats are big and comfortable. We’ll even clean the fish and have it cooked for you back at the lodge if you like!

Our guides are Professional Coast Guard Licensed Captains with the experience and knowledge to put you on fish. We offer charter trips on our fleet of 27′ Sportcraft boats, allowing up to 6 people per boat. Our standard trip is 9 hours long from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. All charter fishing adventures include rods and reels, tackle, bait and fish cleaning and packaging. Guests on our meal plan can enjoy a bag lunch with a large deli sandwich and snacks. We also offer shorelunch at certain times of the season.

If you don’t own a boat, or have never caught a walleye, this is the perfect adventure for you. Come up and fish with us this season!



Our Walleye charter trips are available from the May Walleye opener through the end of October. You can expect to travel anywhere from 1 mile to 30 miles on a charter. We’ll go where we need to go to put you on fish! Where you fish will also depend on the time of year and the wind direction/weather. Being located on the end of the Rainy River allows us to take guests fishing on the river even when the weather/wind makes the lake nearly unfishable. Our guides are always on the water, ensuring they can put you on a big school of Lake of the Woods Walleye.


When most all other fishing is closed, the Sturgeon are on the move in the Rainy River. If you have never caught a sturgeon, then put this on your list this year! Nothing compares to catching a giant sturgeon that bends the rod in half and puts up an incredible fight. The spring keep season is from April 24th through May 7th, but catch and release is allowed before and after the season.

There are over 100,000 sturgeon over 40 inches roaming our waters, according to Minnesota DNR. So your chances of tying into one of these giants is pretty good. Our guides have all the gear and know where the fish are.

* Guest will need to purchase a Minnesota fishing license prior to fishing, and a Sturgeon tag is just $5.
