Elliott Ambassador - Aaron Phillipe

Aaron Phillipe

Owner/Guide True North Guide Service
Aaron Phillipe runs True North Guide Service on Lake of the Woods, guiding walleye, sturgeon, pike and musky anglers in both the US and Ontario. Growing up in Warroad Minnesota on the shores of Lake of the Woods, Aaron was introduced to fishing at a very young age - his father was a guide on the Ontario side for a number of years and his grandparents owned a lake place in Morson, Ontario. Fishing every year as far back as he can remember, things got serious in 2012 when he bought his first tournament ready boat. That summer he dove head first into tournament fishing and has not looked back! With a handful of top 10 finishes and a MTT win in 2019. This Lake of the Woods Guide and Tournament angler has definitely arrived on the Radar.

Favorite Lake: Leech Lake

It’s tough to beat spring time walleyes, but late summer muskies are my absolute favorite to fish for. The ECM9H-F is my favorite bucktail and topwater rod. The ES7ML-F is my favorite walleye jig rod. The slightly softer tip of the 7’ medium light allows you to feel the bite before they feel you. I guide primarily on Leech Lake throughout the summer, learn more about my services and keep up to date on current fishing information by checking out my website linked below.
