This section of river not only produces numbers of bronzeback bass but more citation size smallies than anywhere in the state. you’ll fish in the comfort of a custom built river raft with aluminum frame, padded seats and hard floor.

For those wanting to experience the thrill of pursuing and a good chance of catch one of freshwaters most trophy predators Mike also offers float trips for musky. The musky trips are very seasonal, May-June, October thru winter months (weather dependant ) being prime time. Musky fishing isn’t for everyone. Long days, lots of casting, and a good day musky fishing is catching ONE. Late fall, winter live bait fishing can up the odds considerably. Mike has successfully guided clients from 11 years old thru 85 years young to trophy musky. All musky floats are with a classic Clackacraft Driftboat with both oars and a Yamaha 4 stroke outboard.
