lennyLenny Hodgson
Meet Lenny Hodgson of the Nisswa Guides League.Lenny has been guiding on Gull and other area lakes since the early 70s. Being a retired school teacher, Lenny has the patience and the skills to actually teach people how to fish, and how to find fish. His years of experience on Gull Lake make Lenny a great choice to show you around the fishing spots on the lake.Marv Koep asked Lenny to join the Nisswa Guides League in 1974 and he is still there today. Asked about what he likes to fish for and when, Lenny says: I enjoy fishing a wide variety of species. Sometime, shortly after ice out we usually see some great Crappie fishing. In the spring and fall of course Walleye seem to be the main target, but during the mid-summer I think that Largemouth Bass fishing is about as good as it gets.”
To line up a guided fishing trip give Lenny a call.

What some of our fishing friends have to say:

“Toby’s the best! If you are taking your kid fishing he gets the program, kids first. Toby is an awesome fisherman and we have always had a fabulous success fishing with him. If you want great fishing and a great time, call Toby.”
Mike K.

“Toby always makes the fishing trips worth while. Not only does he help you catch your limit but he makes it fun. He is really nice and always does his best to have you catch the best fish in the lake!”
Drew K. (13 years old)

“A trip to the Brainerd Lakes Area would not be complete without a few fishing excursions under the capable direciton of Toby Kvalevog. we have used other fishing guides, but non have been as personable and enjoyable to be with as Toby. My sons and even my husband and myself have caught loads of fish with Toby’s keen sense of weather and knowledge of Gull Lake. He is full of entertaining stories, listens to ours and is kind natured and enjoyable to spend an afternoon with. Some of my fondest memories are sitting in a peaceful cove, while watching the sun set over Gull Lake and snagging the biggest catch of the day. I highly recommend Toby for all of your fishing excursions, you will not be disappointed”
