    positive review  To all you dads taking your kids up to Canada to go fishing this is a MUST. I just took my kids and we had one of the best fishing experiences you could ever encounter. Donavan is a fantastic guide and he does an amazing job. -- We fished for just over 3 hours and boated 60 Channel Cats that all but one was over 30" long. The action was fast and we had so much fun!. -- GIVE IT A TRY AND YOU WILL BE AMAZED! --- Five Stars - all the way!!

    positive review  Great guides that know how to catch big fish. They work to put clients on fish and the type of people you want to do business with! Absolutely the ones you want to take a Lake Winnipeg Greenback adventure fishing trip with and learn about the lake and fish and the experience, top notch!

    positive review  My boyfriend and I went out with Donovan this morning and had a great time. We weren't without a bite for more than 5 minutes and if we were Donovan moved us to another spot. Great guide. Highly recommend and would definitely go out again. Thanks for all the cats�
