Winter Guided Fishing

Winter Guided Fishing2018-11-29T15:23:34+00:00

The Perch Patrol Guide Service is pleased to announce ice fishing packages for the 2018-19 season.  All of our packages include fishing guided by the Perch Patrol, Lodging, and Meals.  We offer these packages out of Woodland Resort, which has been our home since the Perch Patrol began in 1995.

In the past, all of our packages were geared more towards our customers arriving on the train.  Now without the the train, we have designed each package to be geared towards our customers driving in the day before the fishing adventures begin.  One benefit we realized last season with the majority of our customers driving in and arriving the day before, was how well rested each of them were after having a good night sleep in a bed rather than trying to get comfortable in a reclined chair on a train all night long.  So it just goes to show you some things have a way of working out for the better.

The Perch Patrol Guide Service is a team of 6 guides that work together covering as much of the 130,000 acre lake simultaneously, as possible, and are in constant communication through their privately owned two-way radio frequency.

Lunch and beverages are not included unless you are on one of the resort packages offered by Woodland Resort. You can either bring you own, or make arrangements with Woodland Resort. The cost of these lunches is $8 per person and these arrangements must be made at the time of reservations or with a 24-hour notice.

Fish cleaning is not included nor do we offer it.  If you need instruction, ask your guide and he will get you started.

The Perch Patrol Guide Service Staff currently consists of 6 full time guides. We are committed to keeping our client to guide ratio at or below 4 clients per guide. This way everyone is assured of getting the proper attention from his or her guide.

Deposit Policy: A 50% deposit will be required when making a reservation. We must have a credit card number, and if you are a no show, the card will be charged for 1/2 of the cost of the package chosen times the number of people the reservations are made for under that card. A 30 day cancellation is required. Should you cancel, with a 30 day notice, you will be refunded
