As a child, family vacations introduced me to the beauty of northern Wisconsin. Having grown up in southern Wisconsin, having spent time living in Minnesota, and having spent many weeks in Canada, I’ve been fortunate enough to be able fish the best waters the Midwest and Ontario have to offer. Yet 45 years of experience later, my heart still draws me to my home waters in Oneida and Vilas Counties.

I have been a Wisconsin licensed guide since 2002. For a list of guiding services available, please see my website, And be sure to check out the photo album. My highest priority as your guide will be to make sure that your trip is enjoyable, safe, successful, and most of all…. memorable! I particularly enjoy sharing my knowledge with less experienced clients. But I also enjoy comparing notes the more veteran anglers. There’s always something to be learned from a day on the water.

My personal passion is musky fishing, but I have many years experience guiding for walleye and panfish as well. If any of this is of interest, please give me a call or send an email. My contact information can be found on my website.
