Are you looking for a catch of a “lifetime”?

If it’s big fish that you’re after, then you have found the right guide.  Whether its early season, summer, fall or late season, Muskie Breath Guide Service will put you on the fish!

With an average of 300-400 muskies in the boat and 25-50 of those over 50″, our clients continually catch the fish of their dreams!

You can fish in complete comfort in our 620 Ranger with only the best equipment.  There’s NO SKIMPING when it comes to putting you on the fish.

We practice “CPR” – Catch, Photo, and Release so that the fish can continue to grow and possibly allow another lucky fisherman to catch that fish again.

Mille Lacs Lake, Minnesota’s second-largest lake, spans 132,000 surface acres or slightly more than 200 square miles. Maximum depths barely exceed 40 feet, while much of the main lake falls into the 20 to 38 foot depth ranges. While the north half of Mille Lacs contains most of the lake’s mud flats, the southern portion of the lake offers more gravel and rock bars. All sides of the lake offer some shallow reef-top fishing. Deep-water angling takes place on the southern deep gravel and rocks as well as on dozens of mud flats in the north half of the lake. Shoreline break fishing on varied bottom types occurs all around the lake. The weed line is at 9 to 10 feet.

Mille Lacs Lake offers the angler acres of multi-species action in a genuine “big lake” setting. Walleye, Northern Pike, Muskie, Jumbo Perch, Small Mouth Bass and Tullibee share the limelight at Minnesota’s most popular fishing lake – on open water and on ice.

Prime Spawning Grounds – Mille Lacs’ fame as one of the world’s most prolific “natural” walleye lakes rests on its ability to produce billions of walleye eggs and fry.

No Thermo cline – In the absence of a thermo cline and “layering”, walleyes and other fish species comfortable use the entire well oxygenated lake.

Rich Forage Base – A main reason for the health of the Mille Lacs fishery is an abundant supply of forage.
