Few areas in the Midwest, let alone North America, offer such a diverse variety of fish species – Musky, Walleye, both Large and Smallmouth Bass, Panfish, Northern Pike, Channel Catfish, Trout and more abound here.  Even better, there is a vast collection of lakes, rivers, streams, reservoirs, and flowages in which to pursue them.  Not only is the fishing second-to-none, but the scenery is spectacular!  Fresh air, dense forests, clean sparkling water, and a wonderful array of wildlife abound – Bald Eagle, Turkey, Fox, Whitetail Deer, and Bear just to name a few.  You’ve got to experience it to believe it!

Joel is committed to making your fishing trip first-rate.  He will assist with food, lodging, and entertainment for individuals, families, or even large groups, including corporate outings.  Let him take you on an adventure in search of your favorite fish.  Along the way you’ll learn location and presentation secrets while you receive a top notch entertaining educational experience on the water!  He lives to fish, it’s who he is – the fish are calling, what are you waiting for?!

Joel is available for seminars and educational events as well.  Be it a fishing club, on the water clinic, or school event, he will put together a presentation that will both educate and entertain your audience.  From late fall live-bait tactics for muskies to patterning spring walleyes, Joel is committed to providing an enjoyable learning experience – on or off the water!
