Rob Manthei's Fishing Guide Service
When it comes to fishing, my personal favorite is the musky. I also fish for walleyes and both large and smallmouth bass. I have been avidly chasing muskies seriously since I was about 17 years old.
I am a strong believer in catch and release. All muskies, I feel should be released, and the larger female walleyes (which are the spawners) should be released too. There is nothing wrong with keeping a good mess of fish for a meal here and there. I love to eat fish too!!!!
About Your Fishing Trip I provide equipment for all species of fish. The latest quality rods and reels are updated yearly in my boat. You will always have the use of the same equipment that I use day in and day out. My Ranger boat is always rigged with safety in mind for you and myself. You are responsible for all bait costs.
Fishing is fishing, some days are better than others. Yes, there are days when the fish don't bite. Not every day is a Saturday morning fishing show in the real world. I can guarantee that whether we catch fish or not, the experience on the water will be fun and educational.
A great day on the water doesn't necessary have to be one where several fish are caught, but it should be looked at as a bonus to the knowledge learned that day. Optional Services:
