Let's Go Fishing!
Dick Neefe has been a full time guide for many, many years. He has fished the Mississippi River all of his life. He has learned, developed and fine tuned many river fishing techniques. Learn some of these techniques while on the river with Dick. He can teach you everything from anchoring big, live baits for catfish, to anchoring tiny baits for crappies, bluegill, and perch. You can even learn to fish a jig - the most productive method on the river!
Dick will teach you how to cope with low water and high water conditions. Low water conditions occur in late summer into fall and can produce outstanding catches of walleye, bass, panfish and catfish (if you know what to look for). High, muddy water conditions common in spring, early summer and mid-summer can produce some of the best bass, northern pike, panfish, even catfish (once again, if you know where and what to look for).
