Located on one of the best kayak fishing waters in Minnesota, we have the largest selection of for-sale fishing kayaks in the state, a large selection of rental fishing kayaks and we run shuttles daily throughout the summer and fall. The stretch of Mississippi River that we are on is protected by the DNR and is a state water trail. It has been rated top 10 in the country for smallmouth bass river fishing by Field and Stream Online. Many consider it world class due to the limited motor traffic, river accessibility, and special fishing regulations.
