Chad is one of my best friends, a great guy and an even better guide. The dude flat out works his tail off to get you on fish. Asking where his houses are is not easy as they may not be there tomorrow if the fish arent there.

We are heading up 8,9,10 and staying with Chad, we have 8 guys and last 2 years we went to LOW and it wasn't the best, sevice and fishing. This year I was put incharge of finding the new place and I called around a bit and asked questions of some fisherman freinds and Chad and Jonny P came up as good guys. I called Chad and I think we [PoorWordUsage]'d for 20 min and I knew this was a guy who understud that we are up there spending our fun money and he wanted to make sure we had fun. Cann't say thats true about all resorts or guides I have met or had dealings with. Really looking forward to a first run at Red.

I was in Chad's house a few weeks ago. Great guy and nice houses. He will put you on fish! He checks on us alot, so that is good, not like some people I have rented from up there. I would recommend him to everyone!

Chad is a great guy and definitely works hard to put you on fish. You should not have any problem catching fish with Chad guiding.

I will also be up on the 8th, 9th & 10th. Soul Patrol and Big Jeff if you see a big black superduty stop in. I will be with one guy east of the border and another from south of the border, so make sure you bring the jokes.... They love them.. lol

Had a great weekend fishing on Red lake! Fished Sat thru mon. morning out of Chads houses. I would recommend Chad to anyone. Houses were clean and he works hard plowing snow and checking on you! We caught plenty of walleye and quite a few nice perch! Also caught 3 northerns over 30" with the biggest being 37"! The bite was slower on Sat. but picked up Sun. and Mon. This morning the fish really took of from 8:00 to 10:00! Would have loved to stay longer but had a long drive ahead of us! All in all it was a real fun time!

Big Jeff, we tried just about everything we had! They did not want to hit a jigged lure at all! They would come up and look at them but not hit them. 90% were caught on a plain hook and fathead! The only thing we changed is the line as we went to 4lb mono line. They didn't like the black lines as much! Good luck and have a good time! sdprov

Two of us fished in one of Chad's houses on Thursday.

We caught 16 Walleyes and quite a few nice perch.

Chad did great job and I will definitely be using his services again.

Made for a great time for a couple of Red Lake "Rookies".
