Minnesota Charter Fishing

The most comfortable fishing experience

Let’s Go Fishing!

Imagine spending the day bobbing along the waves; just you and five of your favorite people, soaking up the sun, spending a summer day in style on a Minnesota fishing charter boat out of Sportsman’s Lodge on Minnesota’s Lake of the Woods. Nothing can compare to Minnesota charter fishing for walleyes & saugers!

When you hit the lake with the Sportsman’s guides service, you’re benefiting from over 200 years of combined experience. The Sportsman’s Fishing Charter Guides know where to find the fish on Lake of the Woods, and they know how to navigate the sometimes tricky waters of the big lake. And with over 14,500 islands, 65,000 miles of shoreline, and nearly one million acres of water, it’s a good idea to have someone on board who knows where they’re going on the international waters of Lake of the Woods.

Enjoy your fresh fish as an appetizer in our bar or dining room.

We’ll cook up the fish you worked hard to catch in our dining room or bar after a day’s trip. Just let us know how you’d like it prepared!

We also offer a shore lunch option. Enjoy your morning catch for lunch. Watch your guide cook your fresh Walleye over an open fire. Accompanied by potatoes, beans, bread and cookies for dessert.

And if that isn’t enough, you can even experience two properties & two totally different experiences in one trip with our Adventure Packages.

Your Charter Fishing Vessel

A 27′ SportCraft is the boat of choice for your chartered fishing tour. Holds up to 6 passengers (Coast Guard regulations). Equipped with an onboard restroom.

Groups less than 6, most guests prefer and we recommend the private Minnesota charter fishing option, for an additional charge per slot you can have the boat to your group exclusively! It’s the way to go! More choices, more freedom to do what you want on your vacation. Should you choose not to buy out your boat, other parties will be added to your crew to fill the boat at our discretion. For groups of 5, we don’t add singles, you’ll be charged the private charter rate.
