Walleye Fishing on Lake Winnibigoshish

There are more than 1,400 lakes inside Itasca County, including the Deer River and Grand Rapids areas.  Charlie works with small and large groups and can accommodate one to three guests in one boat, family groups and friends requiring three to five boats, or large company trips with a 10-to-15-boat group. No matter who you bring along you can be certain that a day on the lake with Charlie will result in a limit of fish and a memorable experience!

Crappie Fishing

If you have a lake you would like to fish, Charlie will be happy to show you how to fish it successfully. Otherwise you can rely on his knowledge of current fishing activity and let Charlie take you to where the fish are biting. No matter what area water you fish or what species you seek - you can be sure that you will catch fish. Charlie’s expertise extends to walleye, northern pike, crappie, jumbo perch and bass. Clients of Charlie’s Gone Fishing Guide Service can expect to learn about the area and techniques used for catching your favorite species of fish, all while enjoying the wonderful sights, sounds and smells of the northwoods.

Subject: Crappie Cooler Extravaganza

We wanted to express to you how much fun we had fishing with you and eating your special shore supper. My wife especially enjoyed catching so many more Crappies than all of us, (it's going to be a long winter listening to her fish stories). My brother in-law, took so many pictures we thought you would like to add this one to your collection of happy customers. The shore supper was fantastic, we ate all the fish, potatoes and beans. Sorry you had to witness us licking the plates. It must have been that C&J fish batter. Oh and if you need any references regarding where to find and how to catch Sunfish/Bluegill we would be pleased to recommend you as the expert.....

See you next year, Marcia, John & Gary September 18, 2016
