Minnesota Fishing Guides

Fish Fry Shore LunchWe are fortunate to have the most experienced Lake Vermilion (West end) guides fishing out of Pehrson lodge on a daily basis. A guided trip is the very best way to get to know the lake. Guides are on the water every day and know what the fish are doing. They will show you the most productive areas, depths and techniques for each species of fish you wish to target. Our guides are private contractors who we are happy to schedule for you.
