Woody's Fairly Reliable Guiding Service

Fourty-five years ago I had my very first guide trip with Senator Bob "The Old Trapper" Lessard aboard his boat "The Viking."  As the years passed I guided much with my legendary uncle Butch "Top Dog" Lessard and for all the resorts of which many are no longer in existence.  In the late Eighties I realized that over ninety percent of my customers made it back to the dock safely so I started “Woody's Fairly Reliable Guide Service.”   At age fifty-eight I still enjoy sharing good times and fishing with all visitors to Rainy Lake and meeting new people!  In 2014 it was my extreme honor to be inducted into the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame.
