Prepare For Summer: Book a Summer Fishing Guide on Lake Minnetonka

Set The Hook Guide Services - Minnesota

Summer is creeping up quickly, and there’s no better activity to do during the summer than getting out on the lake to go fishing. Lake Minnetonka is the perfect place to do so. As one of the largest lakes in the Minnesota area, Lake Minnetonka is enjoyed by people of all ages from all over the country who come to beat the heat during the summer.

However, if you’re planning to do some Lake Minnetonka fishing, then you’re going to want to have a summer fishing guide. With a summer fishing guide, you’ll be able to experience what getting out on the lake and being a true Minnesota fisherman is all about. They know all of the best spots, have the best fishing tips and tricks, and can help you have the best time possible out on Lake Minnetonka fishing.

Why You Should Get Out on the Lake

You might be surprised to learn that fishing is one of the most popular outdoor activities in the entire country! From children to seniors, people of all ages love to get out of the house and head for a relaxing day on the lake or by the shore, ready to cast a line and see what they can catch. This activity is great because it’s both fun and easy to do, plus it gets you outside in the sunshine. The best part is spending the day with your loved ones and creating unforgettable memories together.

While fishing may not be the most taxing exercise out there, you can still get quite a workout from heading out to fish. You need to be able to cast your line and reel it in, and when you’ve got a big fish on the end of that line, it can be challenging to hold on and reel it in. Plus, if you’re out fishing on a boat, you’re going to have to use your legs and core muscles to keep yourself standing upright. Even on peaceful Lake Minnetonka, fishing is going to take some strength!

Plus, fishing is great for lowering stress and connecting with nature. Being outside in the middle of the lake, surrounded by water and doing something you love, is a great stress reliever. You can relax by spending the day out on the water. And, even if you don’t catch any fish, it’s still a day well spent.

How to Get Started on Your Fishing Trip

Here at Set the Hook Guide Service, our Lake Minnetonka fishing guides have everything you need to get set up for success. You don’t need to worry about fishing gear—we’ve got you covered. When you work with one of our Lake Minnetonka fishing guides, we provide the following:

  • Abu Garcia and Fenwick Rods
  • Shimano and Pflueger Spinning Reels

If you need it to catch a fish, we’ve got you covered. From the rods to the bait and the life jacket, just in case, our Lake Minnetonka fishing guides come prepared for a full day of fishing.

When you get ready to head out onto the lake, there are only a few things you need to ensure you’ve got with you. The most important one is your fishing license. Your fishing license is something that you need to obtain on your own. While we can help to point you in the right direction, your fishing license must be unique to you, and you need to have it in hand before we head out to go fishing.

Once the paperwork is out of the way and you’ve got your license, you’re ready to go! All you’ll need to bring with you is the following:

  • Sunscreen to help protect you from the hot summer sun
  • Rain gear for unexpected storms
  • Food and water for lunch and in case you get thirsty
  • A cooler to bring your catch back home

That’s it! Once you’ve got all of this in hand, you’re ready to get out and catch fish on Lake Minnetonka.
