Guided Fishing In Northern Minnesota.

Wings and Walleyes offers multi-species guided fishing trips for all ages and skill levels, and specializes in creating memories that will last a lifetime. Your host, Reed Ylitalo, has over 9 years of guide experience and a lifetime of fishing Northern Minnesota lakes targeting walleye, muskellunge, perch, crappie, bass, and northern pike.

Your day on the water will be spent in a completely outfitted 2016 205 Alumacraft powered by a 115 horsepower Yamaha outboard motor. The boat is rigged with current Humminbird fishing electronics and a MinnKota electric trolling motor for precision angling. You'll be fishing with some of the best rod and reel combos on the market, including G.Loomis rods and Shimano Reels. Perhaps most importantly, the large 20-foot Alumacraft offers plenty of space to accommodate the kids, extra gear or even the family dog.

All we had to do was fish and relax in the boat.

“We had the pleasure of fishing with Reed of Wings & Walleyes in May of 2018.  We were looking for a fishing guide that would take both us and our dog out for three days of fishing while staying at Bowen Lodge on Lake Winnibigoshish.  We caught fish each day due to the fact that he is willing to be flexible and travel to different lakes where the fish are biting.  He was so great and patient with our dog who is a minnow thief and also wants to eat every fish that comes back into the boat.  He takes care of everything from baiting the hook, taking the fish off and cleaning the fish at the end of the day.  All we had to do was fish and relax in the boat.  He takes great pictures when you catch the big one and was just a pleasure to be around for the three days that we fished with him.  We had such a great time and successful fishing with Reed that we booked him right away for the next year’s trip.  The choice is clear, call Reed at Wings & Walleyes for a great fishing experience.  ”

Keeps great company.

“Me and my girlfriend went fishing with Reed and he put us on a bunch of fish: walleye, northern, perch, bluegill, and crappie. We had a blast with Reed, I would definitely chose him for a guide again. Reed is a great fishing guide and also keeps great company, so there is no awkward silences. Great job Reed.”
