Musky Guide

4 posts in this topic

Looked at all the great guides on the FM guide page. Have a unique, I think, situation. Want to take my 13yo son out for 2 days of guided musky fishing. He is a great fisherteen, but not a experienced musky fisherman. Looking for a patient guide that will satisfy dad who has been guided in Canadian and US portions of LOW and a X-Games teen with little experience. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I highly reccomend these musky guides:

Dave Schaeffer Guide Service

Musky Tom Guide Service

Ace Guide Service

Any one of these guys are very experienced and will give you and your son a great learning experience.

E-mail me if you need contact info.

A couple more for your consideration are:

Dave Swenson

Jim Roerig aka FM member silverscale, He is retiring from the forest service and is going to be guiding on Vermilion. He's probably one of the most knowledgable muskie angler you'll ever meet. He was weaned on muskie fishing growing up in the Bemidji area and now resides just a few miles from Vermilion. He's been fishing Vermilion muskies since there's been a fishable population. Jim And Dave Swenson were the winners of the PMMT last September on Vermilion. Jim's caught the heaviest muskie to ever come out of Vermilion. Jim's a great teacher as are all the guides mentioned above, you really can't go wrong with any of them. cool.gif

Musky Tom (Picasso) has some of the coolest looking fish catchers(lures) you'll ever see.

Borderview,

I'd love to guide you and your son for two days on Vermilion...getting kids hooked on musky fishing is awesome, and a very satisfying experience, and taking kids fishing is a big part of what I do.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      So does this mean I should go shopping for a kayak?  But ya I should get one thoughWonder if I can fit one in a mini van.
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!

      Good opener last year!  Anywhere near as good this year?

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
