My friend and I fished with Troy for the 2024 whitebass run. Troy immediately put us on fish and kept us on fish all... day. I have never caught so many fish in my life. I think Troy might have been a fish in a previous life. Troy was also willing to share his knowledge and was fun to fish with. Would definitely book with Troy again and would certainly recommend him if your looking for a great day of fishing.read more

We had an excellent day with Troy. He was personable, yet professional. He knows the area very well and boat and... equipment were top notch. We were well rewarded with fish and left with a wonderful experience. This was a Father's Day gift for my Dad-he said it was the best Father's gift thus far. Troy, thanks for making my Dads day special!read more

We went out with Troy today and he really took care of us. With The impending storm we talked and moved our date to... today instead of tomorrow to make sure we could get out and fish and Troy was more than accommodating and making sure we are able to get out and catch some fish since my friends came in from Ohio. He got us on the fish were able to chase down a lot of nice perch today and learned a new way of ice fishing for perch. Troy provided us with a really good lunch made sure everything was taken care of, had good bait highly recommend going out with him very knowledgeable very good at teaching as well. Will definitely go out with him again.read more

Three friends and I booked a Saturday ice fishing. This was our second time fishing with Mr. Bluegill. The bite was... very slow but Troy worked hard to keep us on fish. We moved around quite a bit throughout the day. Troy was constantly working while we were fishing and when the bite started to pick up in the afternoon he made sure we were in the best position to capitalize on it. Equipment was all top notch stuff and we had shelter and heat the whole day. Troy provided a hot lunch on the ice that was very good.read more

I have never been here, however; sometimes when I drive past somewhere Google will prompt me for a review and I usually... try to close it w.o one but apparently I accidentally left one for here. I hadn't realized it until someone reached out to see why the negative review. I apologize for the inconvenience and the mistaken review but I appreciate that you bothered to reach out to inquire. Thats great business etiquette.read more

My friend and I had a great time with Troy fishing for white bass. He taught us how to fish flies and we caught more... than we wanted to clean! Not only did he teach us how to catch them he also taught us how to tie the fly rigs so that we could go out and repeat the process ourselves sometime! We had great conversation in the boat with him. All around a great time. Can't wait to book another trip with him sometime soon! I recommend him for any of your fishing needs from panfish to gamefish - he covers it all!read more

If you're new to the Winnebago System or want to learn more about how to fish it, this is definitely the guide you... would want to go with. Very impressed with the amount of knowledge and skilled Troy has, even in 30+ mph winds we we're still able to have a great day on the water and leave with a plentiful amount of fresh fish.read more

Troy, the owner, is professional and polite. He listened to my ideas, let me know what would work this time of year and... provided great communication. He showed up on time and was ready to go. We caught more fish than we could count (catch, photo, resuscitate, release) and almost got a bonus as a Muskee followed my wife's lure to the boat but didn't get hooked. We had a blast fishing with Troy! As a guy who has used many fishing guides in at least three states, Troy is excellent! When I'm back in the area, he is the guide I'm calling!read more
