Welcome! A little about myself. My mother, a full blooded Canadian and being raised on Lake Of The Woods, Kenora Ontario, gave me a lifetime incentive for fishing Musky, Bass, Walleye and Pike.
In 1977, I purchased a cabin near the Big Manistee River at Wellston, Michigan and began absorbing all the details on how to catch the mighty Steelhead. Entering and winning many fishing tournaments, I soon became a licensed river guide. My interests grew into Lake Michigan and Lake Erie but the WORLD CLASS Musky, Smallmouth Bass and Walleye combo drew me to Lake St Clair, St Clair and Detroit River.
Doug and Garrett's experience will keep you on the hottest bites for trophy smallmouth bass, muskie, and walleye on Michigan's Lake St. Clair, Manistee River, St Clair River and Detroit Rivers!
Fall splits us up. Doug goes to fish the Manistee River for salmon and steelhead while Garrett is on Lake St. Clair for bass and muskie!
Escape winter and join them near Orlando Florida for trophy largemouth bass on Lake Toho. Go fishing from fully insured and inspected Nitro bass boats powered by Mercury and flat bottom river boats.
I sincerely look forward to meeting you and sharing a moment on the water.
