Fishing Guides

While fishing on Pelican Lake is fantastic and many people like the challenge of exploring and finding fishing spots, some prefer to come up and spend a day or two on the water with a guide showing them tricks to our lake. We have 3 guides we recommend, find out more about them below. Feel free to contact us directly to set up a day on the lake with a fishing guide.

Butch Furtman

Butch moved up to Pelican Lake about 7 years ago because he found himself traveling up here regularly to fish. He has been accepted into the Minnesota Fishing Hall of Fame and also hosts his own tv show on fishing. Butch uses his own boat and can take 2-3 people in the boat with him. He charges $400 a day for guiding. I had an opportunity to go out fishing with Butch last September and we enjoyed catching several 5 pound bass and Smallies. In our blog you can read about our day on the water.
