Justin Lightfoot

Fishing Guide

Hi, I'm Justin Lightfoot, a full time fishing guide in Otter Tail County Minnesota since 2007.  I guide about 200 open water + ice fishing trips each season which helps me stay on the fish and deliver real value to my clients.  I often hear that I'm good with kids and family groups, but I serve all types of clients.  For me, the best fishing involves good people, good conversation and lots of laughs, plus a hot bite of course!  Thanks for visiting my website.

  • What type of fish will we catch?
    Most of my clients want to catch walleye but I have plenty of experience targeting small and largemouth bass, crappie, pike, sunfish, muskie, sturgeon and more. When booking, please let me know if you have a preference.
  • What lake will we fish?
    We have many, many lakes in Otter Tail County to choose from and I feel fortunate to have so many good options. Where we fish depends on where you'd like to go, the species we're targeting, and a range of factors. If you have a preference, please let me know.
  • What got you into fishing?
    My first fishing memories are with my Grandpa catching bullheads in the local pond, but I really got into fishing while stationed at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana. I'm also good friends with Ross Hagemeister who's been a great mentor to me and taught me everything I know about being a good guide.
  • Can we customize an outing?
    Sure, I'd be happy to. Please contact me directly and let's discuss how to make your trip perfect.
  • Where should we stay? Any lodging recommendations?
    Yes! If you'll be around Otter Tail Lake, I recommend Holly's Resort and Otter Tail Beach Resort. Further south in the Alexandria area, stay with my friends at Brophy Lake Resort.
