Mike’s Guide Service | Mike Estrin
I grew up fishing on the many lakes of Minnesota and was “hooked” on this sport at an early age. In 1993 I fished Lake Vermilion for the first time, and it instantly became my lake of choice. I have had the privilege to take my wife, kids, family, friends, relatives and, now, grandkids fishing on this beautiful lake over the years. I have enjoyed participating in the City Glass Walleye Tournament for many years, placing in the top 10 several times. I specialize in walleye but also enjoy finding the many other species Vermilion has to offer. Cook, Minnesota has been my home since 2011, when I officially became a fishing guide. My goal as a guide is to teach fishing techniques and knowledge about the lake to anglers of any age which they can take with them and, of course, to land as many fish as possible and have a memorable experience on Lake Vermilion. I fish from a spacious 2017 Triton 216 Fish Hunter powered by a 350 Mercury Verado with all the latest equipment.
