• Memories Made Guides Minnesota Fishing

Welcome To Memories Made Fishing Guides

Memories Made Fishing Guide Service was a dream of Mike Ferrell. Mike and Alie have been taking Military Veterans fishing since 2012.  Mike and Alie were partnering and volunteering their time and equipment with other organizations supporting Veterans.  Today Mike and Alie have fished with hundreds of Veterans and Active Service members across the Midwest region. Memories Made Guide Service provides complimentary fishing experiences to Military Veterans. This not only allows Memories Made Guide Service to give back to our Nations hero’s, more importantly this helps provide great therapy for Military Veterans.
Memories Made Guide Service schedules regular guided fishing trips throughout Minnesota.

Mike Ferrell
Mike FerrellFounder and Fishing Guide
Mike Ferrell founder of Memories Made Fishing Guides Minnesota has fished for as long as he can remember. Mike’s Dad, Grandfather, and Uncle’s were key factors in his passion for the outdoors. Mike has been an avid angler since college where he studied Natural Resources at Vermilion community college in Ely, MN. Mike has always wanted to teach people about the sport of fishing so he worked his way into guiding. It was about a 5 year roller coaster ride of ups and downs to finally find consistent work along with guiding Veterans. Mike’s true passion is teaching others how to fish and pass it on like his family did to him. He has spent countless hours volunteering for several kids clinics, tournaments, derbies, and seminars sharing his passion. Mike is also a verified mentor for the MN DNR. When Mike is not in the boat in the summer, he spends time at his Deer camp in Northeastern Minnesota. Mike is an avid ice fisherman. He fishes competitively in tournaments throughout Minnesota.
Alie Witthans
Alie WitthansCo-Founder
Alie Witthans started fishing when she and Mike started dating. Alie was “hooked” She loved every aspect about fishing especially the time it allowed her to spend doing something fun and active with Mike. Alie loves Ice fishing the most and fishes the ultimate panfish league. Alie prides herself on being the only female in the league. Alie loves panfish most of all and Largemouth bass would be a close second. If you ask Alie, she doesn’t care what she’s catching as long as a fishing rod is in her hand and the lines are in the water. Alie has a great passion for our Military Veterans and she teams up to guide them as often as she can. Alie is the daughter of an Air Force Veteran. When Alie isn’t fishing, she loves to cook and bake, especially wedding and birthday cakes. She also enjoys deer hunting and is a true sportsman.
