There's nothing I love more than putting people on fish! While targeting walleyes on legendary LAKE WINNIBIGOSHISH is my passion, I also fish other area lakes such as LEECH, BOWSTRING, RED, ROUND, and BALLCLUB.
When not guiding, you can find me on BIG WINNIE or another area lake fishing with my family or friends every chance I get. I take great pride in teaching kids of all ages the joy of fishing. I feel my patience, knowledge, and attention to every client's abilities allow me to provide the best fishing experience possible.
Up to 3 anglers can fish safe and comfortably in my 2075 Pro V Lund boat powered by a 250 HP Mercury Verado. Modern Humminbird Helix electronics and quality fishing equipment increase our opportunity to target and catch more fish.
Fully insured, I provide a COMPLETE guided fishing experience. I provide the boat, rods and reels, tackle, bait, and even rain gear. All you need to bring is your food, choice of beverage, a valid MN fishing license, appropriate clothing, a camera, and a positive attitude! At the end of the day I will clean and package your fish to take home.
Looking for a SHORELUNCH? You're in luck as I'm an awesome outdoor chef! Straight from the pond to the pan, I'll cook up our catch along with potatoes and beans...guaranteed to send you home stuffed and satisfied!
Looking for a GROUP OUTING? I collaborate with a variety of guides in the Grand Rapids and Lake Winnibigoshish areas. We can accommodate groups of any size.
We were referred to Dale from another guide as he was busy the day we wanted to fish. Turned out, it was a really great deal. Dale picked up on our personalities immediately. He seemed to know just what we needed. Dale was very professional, patient, knowledgeable and helpful and took great care of us. I don't think I had to put one worm on my hook that day, Dale took care of everything. His equipment is top notch and we lacked nothing. There was four of us on our trip and that many people is hard to manage, yet Dale handled it with ease. He explained in detail about how we were going to fish that day, gave us novices all perfect instructions, and made sure we were on the fish! We caught plenty of walleye and had a great day on the lake. We couldn't have asked for a more successful fishing day! We plan to return and will hire Dale again without reservation! He will be the first one we call next time we are at Lake Winnie! Thank you Dale! Sincerely, The Colorado Crew Brenda & Henry Gimeson Drenda & John Thoen
We booked a trip with Dale while staying at a resort with my family back in 2005. He was very patient and showed a lot of enthusiasm in working with my kids to teach them how to fish. Since then, Dale has taken us out every year since. We look forward to fishing with him every year.
Dale put us on fish! I booked a reunion trip with a couple of high school buddies to fish on Big Winnie. Conditions were harsh-cold, windy, and nobody was catching fish. He worked extremely hard to find fish, and once he found them it was awesome! Within about an hour we had filled out on walleyes and had some bonus northern and perch. At 3:00 we were at the landing eating the best shorelunch I've ever had!
Dear Dale, Thanks for a memorable fishing adventure on Lake Winnie. The three days we spent fishing were really enjoyable. During our drive home, Mike and I talked about how nice it was use the services of guide who was more like a fishing buddy with great gear, a super boat and really knows the water! We appreciate your attention to detail. The photo of Mike's big Walleye turned out great and I see it on your website! In addition to your guiding expertise on the lake, your preparation of the Walleye shore dinner was superb! You and WINNIE WALLEYES get our recommendation and future business. Best Regards
My family can't wait for our trip up north to fish with Dale every spring! He always puts us on fish. Last year we had a 75 walleye day! I highly recommend his shorelunch...its awesome!
Ready to start fishing!
