Fully licensed and insured, since 1984 I’ve been on the guide staff of Mirro-Craft boats. Fishing starts in the Minocqua area with ice-out, usually in mid-April. We start our guiding season for panfish, and our gamefish opener is the first Saturday in May. Guide dates run from April through October, and we fish for all species of fish. You decide what to fish for that day or I will plan the trip ahead of time to keep your lines tight and the fun rolling. Learn a little while you’re in the boat as well, I’ll explain the structures we’re fishing and why we use certain techniques/bait for a particular species at that time of year.

Each trip includes transportation to the lake, any equipment you need, and filleting and freezing your catch at the end of the day.

We’ll fish full (8 hour) or half (4 hour) days and customize each trip to your specific goals. Just bring yourself, your family or friends and of course a fishing license for a day on the water. I  organize corporate dates as well to bring your staff members a fun, relaxing experience. We’ll target bass, walleye, pike, musky or panfish depending on preference.

For a truly unique experience, Fly Fishing on local rivers is available.

My home base is at Kurt’s Island Sport Shop in Minocqua. I also offer a taxidermy service so you can mount your catch or have a life-like reproduction created. The north woods and spending time on the water is all about great memories that last a lifetime – book your trip today and plan for fun in the boat!
