    5 star review  Went out with Brad and had an excellent fishing experience. Easily my best day on the red. Kept us on the fish, so much so that we stopped keeping track of fish. Plenty of masters hauled in. Thanks again.

    positive review  I wanted to thank Donovan and James for an excellent trip. Despite the fishing being slow by all accounts, James worked hard to find the fish, and we put 37 in the boat. The biggest was 37.5", with multiple fish over 34". Highly recommended.

    positive review  This guide service is by far the best I’ve seen. I had a group of three who fish three days and we were more than pleased with the service. We caught a lot of nice eaters along with some personal best fish over the weekend. I beat my personal best walleye three times in two days. Both of the guides we had were professional and helpful. They did whatever it took to keep us on fish. Definitely will be returning in the future. Best walleye trip I’ve been on by far!!!!!
