At Big Dog Fishing Guide Service we also have several other highly qualified guides on our staff. They all have at least twenty years of experience and are very proficient at putting our guests on fish and teaching them how to catch the fish.They have all worked with Gary for at least five years and have proven themselves to not only catch fish consistently but have the patience and desire to make every trip an enjoyable one. For our large corporate events we contract with over 100 of the top fishermen in central Minnesota to provide guides for groups of up to 200 guests. These fishermen are picked by Gary for their ability to produce fish for our guests and that have the patience and professionalism to make every trip an enjoyable one. All of the guides that work for Big Dog Fishing Guide Service are the best of the best. They have the knowledge, patience, desire, determination, skill, and the equipment to make every outing enjoyable. Otherwise they would not be allowed to run with THE BIG DOG.
