Minnesota Fishing Guide Service

Josh Stevenson is a United States Coast Guard (USCG) Licensed Captain and has guided professionally for over 20 years. While his first love is musky fishing (he caught the current Minnesota State Record Tiger Musky in 1999), he also enjoys guiding for walleye, bass and northern pike. In the winter, Josh can be found guiding ice fishing outings in the Twin Cities as well.

If you’ve seen Josh on “The Hunt For Big Fish” starring Larry Dahlberg, you’ve had a glimpse of the enthusiasm and impressive results that have earned Josh a great reputation. He is also a published writer and engaging seminar speaker.

"We were thrilled with the number and size of Northerns and Musky we caught"

“My cousin, son and I are all Pacific NW, died-in-the-wool trout fishers. We’ve never fished for Pike or Musky, prior to our trip with Josh Stevenson. Having been warned that fishing would likely be slow, we were thrilled with the number and size of Northerns and Musky we caught. When we caught two huge Tiger Musky within one minute of each-other, we could hardly believe it. Josh certainly knows where the fish are, and how to coach a novice through the catch. Great job Josh!” – Joel M. 

"Josh is the most down to earth/no nonsense and humble fishing guide I’ve ever had the pleasure of fishing with"

“My friend and I went fishing for Musky July 20 and 21st with Josh and we had a fantastic time! The fishing was nothing short of phenomenal, the social part of the experience was memorable, and in and of itself would have been sufficient to make the trip well worth it—the fact that we caught a bunch of fish was icing on the cake, so to speak. In addition to being a knowledgeable and experienced, expert and patient guide, Josh is the most down to earth/no nonsense and humble fishing guide I’ve ever had the pleasure of fishing with, and I’ve fished with quite a few over the years! … (continue reading)” – Jeff L.

"I have hired fishing guides from Canada to Mexico, and everywhere in-between, and Josh is unquestionably the best"

“I have hired fishing guides from Canada to Mexico, and everywhere in-between, and Josh is unquestionably the best. I can say, without any hyperbole, that Josh put us on the greatest fishing day of my life. In a span of just forty five minutes I caught four or five nice-sized northerns, battled a musky, … and my nephew and father both caught a massive bass…. Additionally, Josh was able to coach my six year old nephew in a way that was helpful and patient but not harsh, unlike some other guides I have encountered… The experience literally could not have been any better… (continue reading).” -Lukas Johnson

"We hired Josh as guide for half a day, and man, he delivered—not only fish, but such a positive, happy experience"

“We wanted to introduce my 6-year-old grandson to fishing, but know Wisconsin lakes better than Minnesota ones—and that first fishing experience better be a good one! We hired Josh as guide for half a day, and man, he delivered—not only fish, but such a positive, happy experience for Quinlan! And the fish: 100 sunfish, no kidding; an enormous largemouth bass, and two giant northerns. The only problem is that for the rest of Q’s life, he’ll likely not have as action-filled a day on the water! Josh was simply terrific. We were thrilled.” – Pamela Hill Nettleton
