Customize Your Trip
I can't make the fish bite or guarantee you will catch a muskie but I will do everything in
my power to make sure your day on the water meets your expectations. I want you to be
happy with your trip even if the fish didn’t cooperate and the weather was bad. After
more than 30 years of muskie fishing the only thing I know for sure is that I don’t know
it all. I see each day on the water as an opportunity to learn a little more about muskies
and their behavior.
Whether you prefer to cast or troll or a combination, we'll customize your trip
to the method you prefer. If you want to learn about tackle, lures, techniques or
learn everything you can about fishing a specific water we'll
work together to make your trip a learning
experience. If you really just want to catch a muskie or
spend a day trying to catch the biggest fish
in the lake I'll do my best to put you
in position to make that happen.
Does the Guide Fish?
I'm in the boat to provide instruction and not
to catch fish, I will only fish if you want me to fish. During 1 on 1 guide trips I will ask you if you want me to fish, sometimes two lures in the water will help us to figure out a pattern. You may also want another lure in the water to increase your chance to catch a muskie, my rod is your rod whether
casting or trolling and I will hand you the rod if I hook a fish.
