STEVE “ZIPPY” DAHL
“Zippy” as his friends, MGS guides and customers fondly call him has been guiding for Mitchell’s Guide Service for 16 years. Which rightly puts Steve as the longest tenured guide for Mitchells Guide Service.
A life long resident of Devils Lake and a graduate of the University of North Dakota, (UND), Steve lives and breathes Devils Lake fishing. Zippy also owns and operates the world renowned winter Perch Patrol Guide Service serving ice fishing customers for the past 24 years. That kind of experience year round, on the water is hard to beat. As a result of his experience and depth, Zippy is known for his hard work, passion and doing what ever it takes to provide the best fishing experience he can to all his customers.
One of the most requested guides we have, better book Zippy early if you want to fish with him this summer. Known for his quick wit and good sense of humor, Zippy will tell you that the best part of guiding for him is interacting with his clients. Most of whom quickly become friends. As with all our guides Zippy runs first rate equipment. When you see Zippy on the water netting a client’s fish, you will know by the size of his smile that this experienced, veteran guide truly loves his fishing and guiding.
As the senior Guide, Zippy works hard with the other guides to see that all of MGS’s customers have a good day of fishing. Whether on the water or on the ice, Steve “Zippy” Dahl has become a living legend as a fishing guide. He has been featured many times in media and print for his skills. We here at MGS are honored to be able to offer you guided open water fishing with the one the only, the legend! Steve “Zippy” Dahl.
