For many people in the Upper Midwest, going fishing means going up to remote lakes in Minnesota, Wisconsin or Canada once or twice a summer. But, there's a ton of great fishing to be found closer to home. Lake Minnetonka is a nearly 15,000 acre lake located about 15 miles west of downtown Minneapolis, and I love calling it my local fishing spot.


As Minnesota's 9th largest lake, this beautiful lake is known for recreation and great fishing. Whether you live in the Minneapolis metro and want to catch some great fish without leaving the city or are from out of town and want to check out this beautiful lake, Lake Waconia or Lake Independence 

I would be happy to be your guide. 


I have a huge passion for fishing, guiding and tournament angling and am eager to put you on some great fish!

This is definitely the real deal when it comes to guided fishing I would come back with my son but also know I would have a great time with my experienced fishing buddies too.

I've been out fishing with Matt numerous times and each time I have left the water with experiences to share and fish to eat. If you're looking for a down to earth, knowledgeable, and patient fisherman who can get you on some metro monsters then he is the guy for you.

Having gone out with Matt now for the past three seasons, including ice fishing, this guy is sometimes a miracle worker when it comes to putting us on the fish.
