Jason Boser owns Jason Boser's Fishing Fever Guide Service and is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable fishing guides you'll find in Northern Minnesota. Jason has been fishing area lakes since 1984 and offers clients top quality fishing trips. He is happy to guide individuals or groups and, along with his colleagues, has guided some big groups over the years from companies including Hubbard Feed, Toro, John Deere, and Golden Sun. There are great facilities in this area that will accommodate groups with conference rooms, catered meals and great lodging all for a single price.

Jason especially enjoys fishing with young anglers and spends one-on-one time making sure they have fun while they learn about sport fishing! He is a strong advocate for getting kids on the water and will accommodate them any way he can…after-all, they are the future of Minnesota fishing.

Jason is a full-time fishing guide so he spends a lot of time on area lakes such as Lake Winnibigoshish, Leech Lake, Sand Lake, Bowstring Lake, Jessie Lake and Lake Pokegama to name just a few. Although he specializes in walleye, perch and northern, Jason can just as easily guide you to the panfish, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass and muskie. His knowledge of the seasonal fishing patterns and habitat of area lakes means he knows the local "hotspots" and can give you the fishing experience of a lifetime no matter what the time of year.

Jason's goal when taking you out on the lake for a day is not only to catch fish that day but to teach you how to become a more successful fisherman every time you go out on the water. He is pleased to teach you the most effective presentation and techniques to use based on the fishing conditions. His commitment to promoting and improving the sport of fishing is reflected by the time he spends during open water season giving fishing seminars at local resorts and fishing contests.

Jason's biggest claim to fame is his now famous and delicious shore lunch. In fact his secret shore lunch batter has become so popular he has started producing it and now offers it through area supermarkets and select sporting goods stores. There is nothing better than pulling onto the shore of a beautiful Minnesota lake and cooking up some of the day's catch over a roaring fire. It's a great way to enjoy some of the awe-inspiring Northern MN scenery.

While on the lake with Jason you'll fish comfortably out of his 18.5' 2011 Alumacraft Competitor boat with 90 hp Yamaha motor. He provides quality St. Croix rods and reels, Humminbird Electronics, life jackets, all bait and tackle and some transportation if needed. You need only bring your valid MN fishing license, rain and/or cold weather gear, camera and cooler with food and beverage. (if you won't be having shore lunch).

Hi Jason,

Jason Thanks again for two great days with you again. The boys always look forward to fishing with you no matter how the fishing is its always an adventure with you! Didn’t know if you got the picture of Cam, with the BIG walleye on Winnie, getting to experience big water fishing! The only bad thing is we have to wait another year to get back up there and fish with you again and have the awesome shore dinner. Let me know when you make the schedule for next year we’ll definitely line up a couple days with you again.
Thanks again and take care

A limit of fish from Bowstring Lake!

We were blessed today with another amazing day of fishing with Jason. He was thinking outside the box and wanted to try a different lake and he nailed it. We caught our limit and had an awesome day despite a few mishaps. Jason always knows where the fish are!! Best of all I earned the bragging rights AGAIN this year. Better luck next year boys. Thanks for the great day!
JodieJuly 9, 2016

We can not thank you enough for giving us an incredible day fishing on Bowstring Lake today. You are such a professional fisherman and a wonderful person. We loved every minute of it. If you ever need a reference, please give our names. We just finished eating the freshest walleye that we have ever eaten! Unbelievable! Of course it was made with your special seasoning.
Thanks again. What an amazing day!
Take care,
Judy June 8, 2016

Thank you for the guide service you and Ken provided. It was one of the better guide service I have encountered. Shore lunch ( dinner) was great. Chris and I fished with Ken and he was awesome. I never had to get out of my chair. I hope you shared some of the tip money with Ken. Tell him to used it to buy a cell phone that floats. Since he has lost so many in the lakes. I did lose my Aaron Rodgers GreenBay hat in the middle of Winnie. If someone snags it, please mail it back to me. I will pay the postage. Ha Ha
I and all the other Eckblad boys had a great time
Tim September 6, 2015

Just wanted to thank you again for another great day with you. You always make it fun and enjoyable for everyone and Cam will not stop talking about that 30” Northern he caught with you! We had a great time the rest of the week and I don’t think I got a chance to fish after that day with you because the boys were catching fish left and right on the lake all week long. When you get around to making the schedule for next year let me know.
Thank you again for all your help and patience
Craig June 30, 2015

I'm sorry I haven't done this sooner, but it's been a crazy week. Words can't express how much we enjoyed the day. If it could have been any better, I don't know how. Your patience, perseverance, professionalism is unmatched. And it was greatly appreciated. I don't think Jon talked about anything else the whole trip home. Truly, I'd like to do it again. I hope I can figure a way to make that happen. Thank You for a very special experience.
Dale D. May 22, 2015

Wanted to say thanks for the great day on leech. Tom and Cody have not quit smiling. You did a lot of work ... you made us a very good memory and we will do it again. thank you.
Darren C. May 24, 2015

Another amazing fishing trip with Jason Boser. Aiden had a blast again this year and Erik just loves being on the water. Thanks so much again Jason. Until next year :)
Jodie and Erik H., August 24, 2014

I just wanted to send a quick e-mail and thank you for an excellent day on the water at Red and Island Lakes last week. My Dad, brother, and myself and a great time and limiting out on walleye made for a perfect day. Your patience and dedication to getting us our limit was way more than expected. Thanks again, and shore lunch was perfect.

Hi Jason,
Just wanted to send you a quick email to tell you how eternally grateful I am that we got to go out fishing with you yesterday! I speak for Johnny as well and he agreed it was one of the best fishing experiences of his life. I just started getting some of the footage put together, but once I have it all up and edited on our website, I will send you the links!

Again, I can't thank you enough for taking us out on one of your days off. It means a lot to me! Make sure to save the pictures I attached to this email from yesterday.

I definitely owe you!! Maybe a couple white Russians…
Have a great day!
Hannah June 5, 2014

Thank you for another beautiful day on the lake and all the wonderful fish we caught! You will be surprised that both boys stayed up the whole way home!! I would like to share with you the conversation Aiden had with me... he says "I like Jason" and I asked why and he says "because he gave me the best first boat ride and we got to go fast". Apparently you made his day with just a boat ride! :) Thanks again!!!

Hi Jason.
I just wanted to thank you again for the fishing trip on June 17 on Sand lake. My son Brent and I had a great time, best fishing day ever. Thanks for all the tips and info. We put it to use the rest of the week. We didn' t catch as many fish as we did on Monday, but we caught something everyday. We had a fish fry and they tasted great. I even ate some, to the shock of everyone.
Thanks again: Bruce Dickson

We just had the best time out there on Friday with you and the various company that floated by! It's such a stress reliever for Jim and just plain fun for me to be able to fish and leave the controls to you. We're always recharged, too, and feel like we can fish better at home. Thanks, again, for everything.
PS We found a recipe for cream of asparagus soup and it's WONDERFUL. Plus, we had crappie sandwiches with some of our catch, and they were really good too.
Jim and Shannon

How's your winter going? I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you that your "How to fillet a Northern" video on your website is AWESOME. My friends and I got into spearing...what a blast! We used the 5 steak method to clean pike but it seems to waste a lot of meat. I remembered this last summer you showed me how to remove the Y bones. I couldn't remember how to exactly do it until I found your video. All of us are using this method of cleaning now.

Thanks for the video!

See you this summer at the McQuay Fish-a-Roo!

I just read your FM post and I wanted to congratulate you on another great season of fishing,I enjoyed our day with you, Roger and the Woodman. I know this is your favorite time of year and I want to wish you a successful and safe hunting season. Do you guys have a hand gun season for deer,I'd like to come up one fall and show you boys how to shoot a pistol!LOL! Say hi to your cute little wife for me.

I had the absolute privelege to share a boat with Jason this last week. The trip was a father daugher type and I wanted my 11 yr old to learn the art of fishing with a jig and minnow. I thought for ease and less headache why not hire a guide and I could not be happier. Jason spent the entire day teaching her to fish with patience and humor. Lets just say I have one happy 5th grader. Thanks Jason.
Darren and Katie Cox

Just wanted to say a big THANKS to you for an excellent day of fishing. We had a great time and you taught us a lot about fishing for walleye that we needed to know years ago. We did catch some fish during the rest of the week.  If you ever need a reference for your fishing services, please feel free to have anyone contact me.  We do plan to return next year. Will contact you for another day of fun.

We had a great time fishing. it was fun, the best part was giving steve a hard time!!! Here's the red cabbage reciepe:
6 cups red cabbage sherdded (1 head);
2 green apples (I put them thru the food prossor too);
1/4 cup packed brown sugar;
1 teaspoon salt;
1/2 cup water;
1/4 cup vineager;
6 slices cooked and crumbed bacon;
some bacon grease;
put in large pot and mix all together simmer 1 hour.
We make about 6 heads and then put into freezer bags and enjoy all year. Again we had a great time. See you next summer if not before. Enjoy hunting!!!! Josh and Rich are getting ready for this weekend
Thanks, Char
