bed and breakfastYou say, “I understand that the Country Inn of Walker is the #1 Hotel in the area..but my wife is crazy for a B&B…what am I supposed to do now??” No fear, just relax and let me tell you about a quaint B&B right on Leech Lake that your wifey will LOVE. How do I know? Because I am a wifey who would love to stay there, so listen up!

This B&B has it all! The view, the suites, the boats, the trails, amazing gourmet breakfasts and golf packages- I mean come on, who would not love to stay here?! The thing about a B&B that makes it so special and so fun is the personal touch and the homey feel you just can’t get anywhere else. My husband has taken me to two B&B’s for romantic getaway’s and they have been some of the best memories we’ve had together. I can’t get enough of a good B&B and this B&B is ranked #1 on tripadvisor in Walker, check it out!

If you have never tried out a B&B, I highly encourage you to give it a shot! I was a little skeptical at first, thinking it would be uncomfortable or awkward to be with the other guests at breakfast or just lounging around the home. Guess what? It’s not! It’s like being with an extended family you haven’t met yet, which I suppose could be bad for some of you..haha! Seriously, though, it’s not as weird as you have it pictured in your head. It’s relaxing and cozy and peaceful and the activities you have at your disposal are the funnest you can find in our neck of the woods. It doesn’t get much better! So here’s the link to their website to book your reservation, just hurry and call, the summer books up fast! Have a wonderful time!

ajax guide serviceThere’s nothing better than coming up north to Leech Lake on a fishing trip and landing that big ol’ fish you’ve been dying to catch! But where do you go to catch that fish? How can you optimize your chances at landing the “big one” to take your glory pictures with and post online to make all your friends wish they were there? It’s a big lake out there and knowing the right spots is crucial. Do you need some help? Do you need the equipment and a boat and maybe someone to show you the ropes? Most of us do! The best way to get the much needed help is to hire a Guide. But what can they offer you? There are at least 5 reasons why hiring a Guide is the best way to go: and here they are.

1- You will catch more fish.  They know the water, they are out there everyday, learning where to put you at the right place and the right time.

2- You can try new stuff!  They usually have new and fun things to try out, reels-rods-lures and electronics, so you can try before you buy.

3- They can teach you about the lake and about how to catch fish. They can show you where to go that is safe and new ways to fish on new waters.

4- Going with a Guide is cheaper than getting your own stuff! Enough said, right?  All of the expenses and the insurance and the equipment upkeep is off your shoulders.

5-  It’s FUN and EASY! That can only be a good thing.  Guides will help you with anything you don’t want to do, tie your lines, set your lures, running the boat, taking the fish off and cleaning them.  Those are all things I do not like to do, so a Guide sounds like a great plan to me.

But who?  Problem solved: Ajax Guide Service to the rescue!! Who is this Ajax Guide Service you may ask? Why Ajax? The owner is Adam Jackson- therefore: AJAX.  Clever! Is he any good?  Oh my, yes. Adam has been in the business since the young year of 1996 and has loved every minute of it.  He spent the last 8 years in the beautiful state of Alaska as a professional Fly Fisherman.  He is a USCG licensed Captain and is fully insured along with his Lund 2011 ProGuide beauty.  He has credentials, baby.  This guy knows what he’s doing and besides all of that, he’s easy to hang with and loves being out there!

Check out his website and see some pics of him and his lovely family who are avid fisher’s as well! So head on over to Leech Lake and book a trip with Ajax Guide Service– let them guide you to the fish.  Let your Leech Lake adventure BEGIN!
