I have been fishing as far back as I can remember. Ever since the day grandpa took me to the local pond to catch bluegills and bullheads at age three, I have been completely in love with the sport!

Camp Fish was a fishing school started by the famous Al Lindner and the In-Fisherman crew. I had the opportunity to learn from the best in the business for a week out of every year for 5 years in a row! It was a fantastic experience to learn and to become a much better fisherman. By 16 years old, I had my own boat and fished as often as I could. Throughout my years of fishing, not only was I lucky enough to fish with my grandpa, and the guys at the In-Fisherman, but I also became friends with pro fisherman and guide Sean Bermingham at a young age. Sean took me under his wing and really helped me become an even better and more well-rounded angler.

By my early twenties, I had a very good understanding of the sport and wanted to take my skills to the next level. Between doing well in local tournaments and getting the opportunity to fish with pro fisherman, I knew that I one day I wanted to be able to teach others what I had learned along the way. In recent years I have also had the opportunity to become friends and fish with Hall of Fame Angler, Spence Petros. I have been blessed to have the opportunity to be able to fish with the best of the best, and I would love to be able to teach you everything I have learned throughout the years.

Fox Chain, Lake County

Fall fishing is going well. Lots of crappie, white bass and some big Walleyes. The muskies should improve with cold weather coming. Time to wrap up an amazing year with a few true trophies. I feel a few giants in our future. Ice will be here soon and we are ready with new permanent shacks that will be used for our trips.

Panfishing has been very good. Lots of fish to be caught right now. Few big Walleyes on reaction strike baits. Last week the Musky fishing was very good and this week was tougher. Think the cold in the forecast is going to bring some really good things. It's trophy time if you are interested in putting in the work.

The fish will stay shallow all the way to ice up and early ice...

Yes, the entire chain is no wake and the river is closed for boating. Probably until the weekend or beginning of next week I would assume

The panfish bite is very good right now. Some fish deep and some very shallow so which ever you like to fish is good. Crappie minnows and plastics are best bet. Few nice muskies caught lately but the bite is not hot and heavy. Walleyes have been slow and bass are decent. T-BONE GUIDE SERVICE will be running a full time ice fishing business this year. Running trips out of permanent shacks that are designed to stay comfortable and we will be providing lunch for our customers. Typically the chain and the local lakes are great for ice fishing. We will have 3-4 shacks out this year and more next year. We also run Lk Michigan trout trips throughout the winter that have been really productive over the years. Lots of good stuff on the horizon. Thanks to everyone who has made this endeavor possible for us.
