aj_bio_imageThank you for visiting vermilionguideservice.com, home of Living Legends guide service. My name is A.J. Wiesner and I am a muskie fishing addict! With countless nights spent sleeping in my boat, truck, or island; I can honestly say that muskie fishing is one of my true passions in life.

Born and raised in Rochester, Minnesota my near home fishing opportunities were pretty limited. As a young boy I remember pedaling with my brothers or friends to local ponds on our bikes to catch bass and crappies. Once I was in elementary school, I was able to join my father and grandfather on walleye fishing opener each year. I was so lucky to be the only kid in the class to skip school each year just to go fishing. A few months after graduating high school I bought my first fishing boat. This was the first major step for me towards realizing my dream of becoming a fishing guide.

I am fortunate enough as a young muskie angler to have achieved so much in my ten years in the sport. From boating 91 vermilion muskies in 2013, to conquering a few fish over the 55″ caliber. To this day I still remember the thrill of my first muskie. Although the fish tore up my fingers pretty good, it was certainly love at first bite.

In 2012 I moved to Lake Vermilion to open Living Legends Fishing Guide Service. At Living Legends, we are truly inspired to share our love and passion for fishing with you. My goal is to not only educate clients on fish patterns, but also customize each trip to ensure everybody is having a great time in the boat. So plan your trip up north to beautiful Lake Vermilion this summer and give me a call for a chance at your very own LIVING LEGEND!
