Guided Fishing on the Brule River and North Shore Tributaries


A typical day on the water starts out early, hiking the remote trails to the river while enjoying solitude and beautiful fall colors or spring foliage. We will spend the morning working through spots looking to introduce you to one of these beautiful fish. Around noon, we will make our way back to the parking area and enjoy a tailgate lunch that typically consists of brats or burgers and a cold salad dish. After a bite to eat and some discussion of an afternoon game plan we will either head back down to the river or relocate to a new stretch. We will continue to work through spots, stopping for photographs when needed, as all fish will be released. Our day will commence leaving you with a basic understanding of techniques to chase the migratory trout of Lake Superior. You will also leave with a new appreciation of one of the most beautiful, wild places in the Midwest: the North and South Shores of Lake Superior.

All rods, reels, tackle and lunch are provided. All you need to bring is sunglasses, waders, felt soled wading boots, and a water resistant jacket.

So what are my options?

Slab Seeker Fishing is a year round guide service offering open water and ice fishing for trout, panfish, and bass in Central Minnesota along with wade and fish trips on Lake Superior Tributaries for steelhead, brown trout and coho salmon.

Trophy Bluegills This is our most popular trip option and will take you to the back county looking for the bluegill of a lifetime. While a trophy bluegill is not guaranteed, we work our hardest to put you onto that bluegill you have been dreaming about. We had a lot of personal best bluegills caught this past summer that included 3 fish in the 11" range, including a monster 11 1/4" giant. Leave the GPS at home and let us take care of the rest. All rods, reels and tackle are provided, along with high end electronics and expert instruction. In the summer we will be fishing in a 2014 Crestliner 1750 Fish Hawk. This allows us to sneak into remote venues without sacrificing comfort or stability. Our winter trips take place in Clam portable fish houses that will be moved throughout the day to keep you looking for that trophy. We provide professional quality photos of your trip. $350 full day only.
