John is a professional angler and Coast Guard licensed guide offering fully guided fishing trips for trophy largemouth and smallmouth bass, walleye, and northern pike on the Mississippi River in Southwest Wisconsin from LaCrosse, Wisconsin to Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.

Southwest Wisconsin is one of the most beautiful areas in the country, and I am fortunate to have lived here my entire life. I started fishing the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers, as well as area lakes at a young age. I have fished tournaments on these waters for over 25 years and have the experience to put you on fish and provide a quality fishing experience. Fish either the Mississippi or Wisconsin River for largemouth and smallmouth bass, walleyes, Northern Pike, catfish and panfish. Other offerings include Ice fishing trips on the Mississippi and Wisconsin River backwaters.
