I highly recommend Set the Hook guide service for ice fishing. Todd is great - he is friendly, responsive, and willing to answer questions. The whole experience was very good. The fish house was clean, warm and stocked with poles, tackle and bait. Todd showed us how to use the underwater camera and Vexlar. He came to check on us multiple times throughout the day. And we literally caught 150 pan fish(sunnies and bluegills) between 2 of us. The only thing that would have made it better is if we caught some Crappie after dark, but no one can make the fish bite. Lastly, Set the Hook was the best priced compared to his competitors. I will definitely book with Todd again in the future.

I booked a charter last weekend for my husband's birthday and Todd gave us an awesome experience. He was incredibly helpful during the booking process with all of my novice questions around fishing licenses, he immediately said happy birthday to my husband when we first showed up, he took us to a variety to locations on Minnetonka during our four hour booking and told some exciting stories about his fishing adventures. From start to finish this was an easy and enjoyable experience that I would recommend to anyone! Thank you Todd!!

Had a great day. Kurt got me setup as a first time ice fisher and checked in with pointers. I started without electronics and then Kurt mentioned an underwater camera which really improved the experience. Todd and Kurt were very helpful answering newbie questions. Highly recommended.
