Todd Stauffer - career fishing expert & guide

Meet Todd

Todd Stauffer has been a local resident for over 50 years and has fished the lakes in the area for over 30. He’s fished for tournaments

for more than 10 years, taking two 1st place finishes and four 3rd place finishes. When he retired from his tournament career, he turned to guiding on Lake Minnetonka, staying up-to-date with the recent fishing patterns and sharing the joy of fishing with Minnesota residents all around.

Along with Lake Minnetonka, Todd guides on Lake Waconia and other area lakes that hold big fish.

"Thank you for a great time on your boat and on Lake Minnetonka!
We had a great time and a great experience.
It was awesome to be able to show up and start fishing and
not worry about anything afterward.
Thanks for taking us to some great spots!"
