Jeff is a multi-species angler who specializes in walleye fishing but loves to fish muskie, bass, northern pike and panfish as well. He’s on the water every day from May through September which gives him an in-depth knowledge of area lakes as well as the experience to get his clients “on the fish.”
While Jeff enjoys providing a fun fishing experience for people – his biggest enjoyment comes from helping people become better anglers. He generously shares his expertise on successful techniques, bait presentation, fish behaviors and areas to fish so that you will be a more productive fisherman after his day with you has ended.
We had a blast in the soaking rain catching one walleye after another. Thank you for teaching us the "Cubby" knot (that's what we call it), your tips and guidance during our two days with you. The best part of the trip was watching Lea catch that huge walleye not realizing there was a slot size limit. The look on her face when you released it back was priceless... We have never been to Minnesota to fish, but plan to return to fish with you next year. Thanks again Cubby for a very memorable, fun and exciting two days.
Take Care & Happy Fishing......

Jeff enjoys guiding individuals as well as groups of anglers. He feels that the biggest reason for his success as a professional fishing guide is his affiliation with the outstanding guides that make up Minnesota Fishing Pros.
While on the lake with Jeff you’ll enjoy fishing from his 2019 Lund 2075 Pro Guide boat with Mercury Pro XS motor. He provides quality equipment, life jackets, fuel, and bait and tackle. You need only bring your valid MN fishing license, rain and/or cold weather gear, camera, and food and beverage. Feel free to bring your own fishing tackle if you prefer.
