Welcome to Artificial-Angler.com
My name is Rick Aguilar and I am the artificial-angler. Artificial-Angler Fishing Guide Service is a multi-species guide service serving Minnesota and Wisconsin. As my name implies, I use artificial baits, or lures to catch virtually all of my fish. I provide a variety of methods and presentations to have a fun and successful day on the water. All without ever going to the bait store.!
It's not that I don't like fishing with live bait, it's just that I have had great success in my lifetime, fishing with artificial lures. Over the many years that I have been fishing, I have honed my craft to target and catch a multitude of species, all by use of artificial baits. I target 5 main species: walleye, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, northern pike and musky! I also like to occasionally fish for other species like catfish or sturgeon and of course panfish.

My boat is a 2013 Lund "Impact 1775" powered with a Yamaha 115hp 4 stroke outboard. This boat is rigged and ready to fish for multiple species in maximum comfort. Some of its features include: sun/rain top with side curtains & walkway curtain for when the weather gets really bad, Minnkota Terrova 80 lb thrust 24v trolling motor, Minnkota 8'4" Talon shallow water anchor, fore & aft live wells, large casting platforms (front & rear), and of course Lund's famous pro ride seats. It also features 2Lowrance HDI-7 high definition graph/downscan/GPS chartplotter combos (1 console & 1 bow). I had this boat custom rigged for multi-species fishing on a variety of water. I can now handle even bigger water, while still having the ability to slink into the skinny water to hunt bass & musky.
