Bill Broberg


There's no better fisherman than Bill Broberg. Born and raised in the Deer River and Grand Rapids area, Bill has been a fanatical fisherman his whole life.  He grew up on a lake and has fished every day as a kid, where he learned how and where to catch every species of fish found in the area.  Now as a fishing guide, he shares his knowledge techniques to those he takes out fishing. Bill enjoys nothing more than spending a day on the lake helping people make memories, and especially enjoys fishing with young anglers. His philosophy is that when you introduce kids to the sport of fishing at a young age you are encouraging a lifelong pursuit of angling. He makes fishing fun for youth, while teaching successful fishing techniques as well as conservation. Bill makes an effort to promote sport fishing for the next generation by encouraging catch and release. Today’s “keeper” is tomorrow’s trophy. Ol' Trapper Bill's Guide Service can accommodate groups of up to 30 people and he prides himself on having the latest fishing information on area lakes. So you can be sure that Bill will get you on the fish! Bill specializes in a delicious shore lunch. Not even a fish dinner at a five star restaurant can compare to eating your catch-of-the-day while enjoying Minnesota’s natural beauty.
