December - March Minnesota's Longest Walleye Season


Sportsman’s Rainy River – A fishing & outdoor recreation paradise in the Walleye Capital of the World

Where You Go if You’re Goin’ for Walleye!

We’re known for having world-class Minnesota fishing in all four seasons, and we know what all great anglers love to do… to catch fish, be comfortable, and have a great time! We pride ourselves on providing all the right tools for you to have the fishing trip of your dreams – take a guide, no experience required!

Located on the Rainy River and the South Shore of Lake of the Woods 12 miles north of Baudette. If you love fishing and outdoor recreation, Sportsman’s is the place for you. Lake of the Woods is an incredible fishery and known as the Walleye Capital of the World. Sportsman’s Lodge specializes in fishing trips in all seasons.

We offer spring, summer, and fall guided charter fishing and full-service winter fish house rentals. Our guided trips mainly target walleye and sauger but in the spring we offer guided sturgeon and pike outfitter trips too.

Along with fishing, Sportsman’s is a full-service year-round resort with something for everyone featuring lodge rooms, cabins, villas, campground, two dining venues, a lounge with entertainment, a rooftop bar, an indoor pool, hot tub, game room, dock slips, banquet and meeting facilities for up to 300.

Whatever the season, Sportsman’s has a trip for you.

Love this place! We come up every year the food is fantastic the service is top notch and the Villas are just as nice as my own home. So much fun. Can’t wait till next time to catch some more tasty Walleyes. Thanks for all you do to make my mini vacation always an excellent memory.
