What Our Clients Are Saying!

Paul was a great guide. We specifically asked for a walleye fish. In four hours two of us caught 15 walleye including an 18-incher and a whopper 27-incher!

Paul was friendly, personable, and extremely knowledgeable. He pre-scouted areas and had them marked on GPS on beautiful 40,000 acre Lake Vermilion. I would re-book Paul tomorrow if I wasn't leaving.

Thank you, Paul, for a high-quality and professional fish!
