Big News for Rainydaze Guide Service in 2014!!



It is with great honor we announce our needed expansion to further serve our incredible base of customers. For several years now, our guide service has been at capacity and frankly unable to meet the demands of a rapidly growing client base. We thought long and hard about the prospects of adding new captains to our service. In the end we are extremely excited to continue to flourish in the guide business, and the fishing industry on a larger scale. On a personal level, I guide on a full-time basis all four seasons. I’ve been averaging nearly 170 trips a year. As a Staff member of the Skeeter Boat Center and Clam Outdoors much of my spare time is spent promoting the sport of fishing on a larger platform with technical seminars teaching fishing. This past year has called for more of our my former ”Free Time”. I gave seminars at the Minneapolis Sport Show, Duluth Sport Show and the Skeeter Boat Center’s annual open house. We continue to fulfill a love for Outdoor writing and appreciate the ability to further connect with those who love the great outdoors as much as we do.

I am honored to announce Ben Gilbertson and Chuck Coombe as the newest guides that will be representing the Rainydaze branding. These two gentleman were handpicked, and we are sure you will love them as much as we do. Both of these men are incredible fisherman, and just fun guys to spend a day on the water with. We are extremely diligent as it pertains to the level of service we offer our anglers and never take a trip or customer for granted. We vow to provide our customers the highest level of service in the fishing industry. From top notch boats to premium fishing equipment. We all run 21-22 ft Glass boats. I of course will be running the all New 2014 Skeeter WX2190. The other guys are running Rangers and a Triton. We want your comfort as you enjoy your day with us. We are very versed at teaching techniques and pretty handy with the net. We look forward to helping you and your party “Unplug” from the hustle and bustle of today’s world, and plug into the world of fishing. Our team guides visiting anglers on both Rainy Lake and the Rainy River. Our shared expertise further allows us to provide anglers success on some of the most majestic waters in the entire world!!

We look forward to meeting you and putting a bend in your rod this coming season!! Please note that even with our expansion our demand will exceed our availability. When at all possible it is advisable to reserve our guides as far out in advance as possible.
