"My 10 year old son Colin and I  had the pleasure of booking our first fishing trip to  Lake Minnetonka in October 2015 with Matt Reinertson Fishing and Guide Service. We have travelled farther north in the past to the Lake of the Woods area but this trip was kind of last minute and I didn't really feel like driving the 11+ hours each way from Iowa. We had 3 days to fish and I really didn't want to take 2 of those 3 days driving clear up to the border. The trip started out perfect, a quick 4.5 hour trip from our door to this beautiful lake. Matt recommended a great Holiday Inn that to my surprise had a water slide. Bonus points from Colin on that one Matt! We met Matt at the boat ramp at 5:00 pm. He was on time and ready to get us on the lake. The first thing I noticed was how clean and organized this guys boat was, it was like that  on all 3 days we went out. Everything seemed brand new and he had the latest technology on board for finding fish. Great quality reels and tackle was the next thing that caught my eye. I have been on several trips before that the equipment was not cared for or it was just plain worn out. That was not the case on this trip. Matt has great people skills and communicates very well so it was just easy to talk and learn from him. My son and Matt hit it off very well. He even answered all 10,000 of my sons questions politely with a huge smile every time. Matt definitely knows the lake very well and always seemed to be getting us to another spot with fish anytime it slowed down. We caught a lot of great fish!!! This was a fantastic trip with one on one time with a very good guide who taught us a lot about fishing and the best part for me was I actually got to fish as Matt took care of every need we had on board. 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.  We absolutely can't wait to get back up there and do it again soon.

"My buddy Matt is lucky enough to pursue his passion in fishing through offering guided outings in the Twin Cities area. 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. Check out his page, give it a like, and keep him in mind next time you have friends, family, or clients in town, or even if you yourself want to hit the water for a day!

Kevin Duclos - Hudson, WI.

"This writing is for all those wanting to catch FISH!!!  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.  He has the lakes terrain and timing down for each bed and type of fish that we were hoping for no matter what lake or season.  Even in the mid-day down times, Matt will get us off the water and hit the finest lunch depot in the areas!  Not only is Matt a local and a top tier guide, he is also a good and fun guy to hang around.  From the morning put in and getting underway, to the right gear and tackle, bait at the right time of day to cleaning and back on the road, your day of fishing will be one that you and your friends will remember.  Heck, Matt might even tell you his story "...about the one that got away!""

Kurt Sellmeyer - St. Louis, MO.

"Special thanks to Matt Reinertson Fishing for the tremendous fishing experience tonight. The perch were hot early & big walleye showed up late. Want to get a group together out on the water/ice? He's your man!"

Shane Carter - Minneapolis, MN.

"I can not recommend Matt Reinertson's guide service enough! He is friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable! To have successful walleye it's essential. He had us on fish right away. Within 25 minutes Matt netted this 23 inch for me that I released for someone else to catch. By the end of the night we had 6 walleyes that we released. His boat and equipment is top notch. Long story short, you won't be disappointed.

Bob Dean - Apple Valley, MO.

"Matt showed real prowess on our most recent trip to Lake Minnetonka.  Despite being a busy day on the lake, Matt led us right to the fish and helped us land some real monsters!  I highly recommend Matt to anyone looking for some insight to Lake Minnetonka fishing."

Rob Hansen - Plymouth, MN.
