Welcome to Big Lake Guide Service on Lake Sakakawea. My name is Aaron Hayden and I will be your guide.
I specialize in walleye and salmon fishing trips, but can also target small mouth bass, northern pike and catfish - which are very abundant on Lake Sakakawea and the Missouri River.
Your walleye trips will be fished out of a 21 ft Skeeter. This boat is made for big water such as Lake Sakakawea and offers the comfortability and space to fish from.
For those interested in salmon charter, you will be fishing out of a 25 ft Bayliner Trophy with roof and rest area down below.
In the winter months I provide, ice fishing and dark house spearing (for Northern Pike) on Lake Sakakawea and surrounding smaller lakes.

With North Dakota’s ever so changing weather, safety is my #1 focus on your fishing trips. My goal at the end of each day is for my clients to be satisfied and wanting to return for more. I reserve the right to end a trip or call it the night before if I deem the conditions unsafe. Clients will be reimbursed appropriately.
