Phil Jensen grew up in the Ottertail Lakes Area and has been guiding and fishing tournaments in this area for over 40 years. Ottertail Lake is home to Phil and his family dating back to his Grandpa fishing the lake in 1918. When Phil is not fishing the Ottertail Lakes Area, he can be found hunting big game animals, upland game and waterfowl across Minnesota, the Dakota’s, Colorado and Canada. Phil has been fortunate to fish from Alaska to the Gulf of Mexico and many places in-between but always comes back to Ottertail Lake. As an educator by profession, he enjoys teaching people how to fish, the importance of boat control, how to utilize your electronics and the excitement of saying “Oh There’s One”! Whether you are wanting a relaxing day on the water or an in-depth on the water seminar contact us to arrange a date.

Todd Cameron grew up on the South Dakota side of Big Stone Lake and has spent more than 40 years fishing for walleye, northern, and pan fish. His longtime passion for fishing started when he was a small boy and his grandfather who would take him out in a row boat, or would fish with him from shore. Over the years, Todd has spent most of his water time in South Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin fishing primarily for walleye. “The excitement, thrill, and the challenge of catching walleye will never get old, just more appreciated as I grow older.” Do you want to fish the Otter Tail Lakes area or Big Stone or Lake Traverse? Todd has more than 30 years of experience fishing Lake Travers and Big Stone. Call or send an e-mail to book a date for a day of fishing. Thanks for checking out PT’S Guide Service --

PT's Guide Testimonials
“I had the pleasure of fishing with Todd Cameron twice this summer. He is an excellent guide and knows where to find fish even in less than ideal conditions. The highlight of one trip was a 281/4” Walleye caught by my 14 year-old grandson. His picture is in the photo gallery. He’s the one with an ear to ear grin wearing a tan hoodie. I will definitely use Todd whenever I have guests to give them a wonderful fishing experience rather than rely on my fish finding skills. I unreservedly highly recommend Todd Cameron and PT’s guide service.” - Burt
"My first fishing experience in Minnesota after retiring was a smashing success. On a hot July day, when other fishermen on the lakes in Otter Tail lakes area were hoping for a bite, we hauled in walleyes all morning. My partner and I had lots of laughs and a successful fishing trip with our limit of walleyes cleaned and ready for the freezer. It was a great day on the lake in Otter Tail lakes coutry, thanks to our knowledgeable guides. They knew the lake and had the equipment needed for an exciting fishing experience." – Bernie
"WOW! What a great morning on the water. We caught fish all morning long in several different locations." – Paul
"We had an excellent experience with PT’s Guide Service. From the time we met at the dock to them handing us freshly filleted walleyes. The experience was nothing short of great." – Craig
"I learned more about walleye fishing Otter Tail county in one day than I had learned the previous five years. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us." – Dan
“I have lived on a lake all my life--and fished as often as possible--and wanted you to know that my son and I had a wonderful fishing experience with the both of you! The boats and equipment were state of the art, but the personal touches of knowing the lakes, hot fishing spots and finding huge walleyes was outstanding. As educators, both of you understood and demonstrated how to fish successfully with humor and caring for all ages. We stayed at a water-park hotel in Otter Tail and never got to the pool due to the great fishing experience. This was one of the best fishing trips we have been on and hope to return again next year.” Kirk and Tanner Nelson
