About Bruce

I have been a licensed guide since 1983 and have fished nationally in the FLW/RCL Cabela's Team Championship, NAWT Grand Championship Walleye Cup and Mariner Classic and have had upper placement in all of them.

I have tournament fished with top area guide Greg Bohn and National Bass Pro Fisherman (the late) Norb Wallock for top placement finishes.

I have also fished and won many local walleye tournaments, including the Grand National Walleye Cup State Championship (with partner Chad Curtis) on the Minocqua Chain of Lakes.

I consider every guide outing as a tournament and will do everything I know to put fish in the boat. I consider myself a teacher in all aspects of the sport, whether you are looking for a trophy fish or just some family fun, it will be a memorable one.

I fish out of a Ranger 619 powered by a 200hp HDPI Yamaha and 8hp kicker, Lowrance electronics and Minnkota trolling motor. Fully licensed and insured.

I fish many area lakes in Vilas and Oneida counties and the surrounding areas, including: Minocqua Chain, Willow Flowage, Trout Lake, Rainbow Flowage - Sugar Camp, Turtle Flambeau Flowage, Manitowish Chain.
