What's your opinion Westwind or Chad Benson?

Recommended Posts

I know from this site that both Westwind and Chad Benson get good reviews. I am curious what your opinions are? I am looking to book something in the near future for weekdays I know weekends would be hard to get this late in the game.Thanks for your help.

I don't know Chad so I can't say. But I can say is you can't go wrong with West Wind. Good roads, they always check on you and try hard to keep you on fish. The houses get moved weekly if not more often and are always kept clean and warm.

I am the the other boat the AC21, never fished out of a WW house but can tell you Chad is great if you can get into one of his houses (he is mostly booked this year when I have called). I guess the main difference is Chad is out of the south shore and WW is out of the East shore. I guess you could do both and give us a report grin

I personally have not used either service as I use another on the lake. I will say this, I have heard nothing but good things about Chad Benson.

Chad is one of my best friends... I do know from talking to him he has been pretty booked. But you never know about cancelations. As one poster above states, both have and run a very good buis. Depends on where you want to fish. I know Chads houses now are on a rock to sand trasition and have been doing quite well..

Used Chad last Dec. and hands down he is the best guide I've ever had.....no B.S. either. He checked up 2-3 times throughout the day asking if we wanted the shack moved. B.S. with us and gave us some tips on what usually worked. We averaged [PoorWordUsage] close to 100 walleyes a day also, so if your asking about Chad he has my approval.

Like I said, we are booked with him this weekend and I did some research and he seems to get good reviews from EVERYONE. He has been pleasant to work with thus far.

Went with Chad last year and will be going with him in a few weeks. Great guy! Checks on you 3 to 4 times a day! Have no problem recommending him!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
