Looks like fun, Hutchy! I feel the same way about guiding people. I don't do it because I hate to be responsible for their disappointment and making them pay for it to boot.


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

Water isn't quite warm enough for bucktails here yet. Tubes have a slower glide and side to side walk that is killer right now. My slyder jerkbait has an almost identical action. It seems that fast pull followed by a sideways dart is exactly what they want right now.

That's part of it too. Managing expectations is tough.

I guided a bit when I was younger, but now,...naw

There are new world record muskies swimming in our Great Lakes right now and there will be more coming in the future. Huge bodies of water with all types of prey sizes and fatty fish that put on gowth.

MNR did a musky study here a few years back and netted a 62" fish that they say was record potential.

Its those massive pelagic fish that swim around in the big water that are the hardest to find. The kind you might troll for months for a shot at a monster of epic proportions.

So much of fishing success is created by the luck of where I was born/raised and the opportunities provided by such


Makes ya wonder how much of life is like that.
