Den Pluimer - Fishing Guide
Turn an ordinary fishing trip into a true outdoor experience!

Meet Your Next Fishing Guide:

Den Pluimer has been professionally guiding the Brainerd Lakes area for over 30 years. He started his professional career at a fishing camp in Walker, MN and then worked at Camp Fish with the Lindner brothers, Al and Ron, as well as several other well-known fishermen from the area including Reggie Thiel and Al Maas.

After Camp Fish, Pluimer moved on to his own guide business, where he routinely boats 1600 - 2000 largemouth bass per summer. While his specialty is the largemouth bass, Pluimer successfully guides for northern pike or walleye as well.

"I am a fanatic fisherman, especially when it comes to largemouth bass. If I have a day off from guiding, I will likely be out experimenting on a new lake. I will do everything in my power to put you on fish and to help you put fish into the boat - lots of fish!"

"One statistic I am proud of is that of the 1850 bass landed last year, all but 20 were released. All trophies were released, with customers choosing graphite replica mounts rather than the real thing."

"When you hire me, you will receive much more than a fishing trip. I am also an author, having published in "Bassmaster", "Fins and Feathers", "Minnesota Sportsmen", "The Minnesota Volunteer", "The Iowa Conservationist", and "The Christian Educators' Journal". I am also a public speaker, an educator, and a naturalist. I hold a Masters Degree in biology and have taught high school biology for 39 years."

Den and his wife Sheri reside in the Pine River area, where they raised their 3 children.
