Had the most incredible weekend this past weekend through RLK Guide Service! Although the bite was a little tough, Thad made our experience nothing but exceptional. 24 hours a day, he was constantly checking in and making sure we didn’t need anything and giving as much advice as he could so we could be successful. Everything was ready to go when we got there, heat was on and the holes were clean! I highly recommend Thad and his guide service to anyone wanting to fish Red Lake. House was clean and great

We have used Thad many times for our outings. Highly recommend him. You won't find a more hospitable guy! Nice shaks that are kept clean. He sets you up on a fresh spot on the ice, checks in often and cares that your fishing adventure is all that you want it to be. Weather it's a ladies, guys or family weekend he's got you covered! I'll never go anywhere else!

Thad was super helpful with any thing we needed. It was 7:30 and the battery for the lights in our house was dying. Thad let use use a generator free of charge for the inconvenience. We also did manage to get quite a few Walleyes. Family friendly ran business would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys fishing or just getting away from the busy city for awhile.
