On any of a number of Ely area lakes, we pursue a variety of species, both winter and summer. Lake trout, trophy pike, bass, walleyes and panfish are all on the menu.
We fish out in the open in winter, as weather allows, but also fish out of heated portable hub shelters for client comfort, and in cold weather those shelters are set up in advance, so there’s no lingering outside in harsh temperatures.
Lake trout, particularly in winter, are the most aggressive fish we’ve ever pursued through the ice. They will fly up and down the whole water column in pursuit of lures, and are strong and relentless fighters. There are crappies over 14″, pike over 40″ (with the largest so far 46.5″), and walleyes to 10 lbs.
Summer rates are $350/full day and $250/half day for up to two anglers, with $50 for each additional angler.
Winter rates are the same, except, because the days are short, only full day trips are offered.
In all seasons, I provide all gear, so all clients need to bring is licenses and whatever they want to eat, drink and wear.
Take advantage of 40 years of fishing experience and 25 years of teaching experience. Come on up and have the trip of a lifetime on some of the most beautiful lakes in the boreal forest.

That is over 2 decades of fishing experience from being on the water nearly every single day during the summer months. Let us know when we can help you plan your next trip to the Ely MN, Area.
Here at the Ely Fishing Guide Company there is one thing we do, we catch fish! The second thing we do is, we have fun doing it!! Our mission for our customers is to provide a unforgettable fishing experience. Sharing these moments with our customers, when they catch their trophy fish, or when their grandchild catches their first fish is why we do it.
How about getting away from cell phones and the shuffle of the city for a day or a week, more?
Come on up north and catch more fish than you can imagine. With over a million acres of true wilderness and thousands of lakes to choose from, we have undoubtedly the best smallmouth fishing in North America.
Wilderness walleyes? Nothing beats the reward of a little extra effort to get to those “secret” fishing holes. Experience an ‘age-gone-by’ traditional campfire cooked shore-lunch with freshly caught walleye. Then see some pristine waterfalls, northern lights or pictographs, maybe a moose? Northeast Minnesota has some of the best wing shooting for Ruffed and Spruce Grouse in the nation. Endless trails and solitude.
