You would be fishing with the family of guides, literally. Eddie, Haley, Justin and Taylor Mindt are anglers that have been born and raised in the area and have the knowledge base to offer you the best fishing anyone could expect. This family also owns the Lakeridge. It is a store and also motel rooms, cabins and RV lots. They can handle all your needs, and in a place that is well off the beaten path, this kind of access is very welcome.
If a trip on a body of water that boasts more shoreline then the entire west coast sounds like your cup of tea, please give me a call for availability, and I will get you booked up with the Mindt family and a trip that could put your name in the record books.
