From a very young age Jeff has pursued sport fishing and hunting and feels fortunate to have been able to turn his passion for the outdoors into a full-time career.
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.
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 18.5' Alumacraft boat with 90hp Honda 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 (if you aren't planning on having him cook a delicious shorelunch). Feel free to bring your own fishing tackle if you prefer.
