About Northern Prairie Guide Service

Our Story

Our Humble Beginnings: From Late-Night Musings to Premier Guiding Services
What began as a late-night idea on the tranquil shores of Lake Thompson, SD,  in the warmth of a local restaurant, has blossomed into the renowned Northern Prairie Guide Service. Our journey has unfolded across the picturesque landscapes of NE South Dakota, Western South Dakota, and the expansive waters of the Missouri River system. Initially focused on the pursuit of Walleyes, Perch, and Crappie, we've now ventured into the realm of Big Game, adding another layer of excitement to our repertoire.

At the heart of Northern Prairie Guide Service is a passion for the outdoors and a deep-seated desire to share that enthusiasm with others. As the founder, my #1 Priority was to create an experience that transcends the ordinary, offering fully guided trips that forge lasting memories. Our dedicated team of guides, who are immersed in this full-time endeavor, spend over 250 days a year on the water, the ice, or in pursuit of big game.

The commitment and drive of these young men are truly admirable, evident in every day spent guiding our clients. With a wealth of experience, we've learned the tendencies and habits of our target species, evolving our tactics and strategy to ensure success for everyone who joins us on a Northern Prairie adventure. The safety of our clients is paramount, and both our guides and our business are fully insured, providing peace of mind as you embark on your outdoor escapades.

So, whether you're seeking the thrill of the catch on the water, the challenge of ice fishing, or the excitement of pursuing Big Game, Northern Prairie Guide Service invites you to join us on a fully guided trip.

Come, make memories with your family and friends, and experience the outdoors in a way that goes beyond expectation.
