I have been fishing the upper Mississippi for muskies for over 20 years, and I have not offered any guided trips until now. Muskies are muskies wherever they swim, and just because we’ll be on one of the best fisheries in the world for big muskies doesn’t guarantee we’ll put a fish in the boat. However, anyone who enjoys chasing muskies will enjoy the change that river fishing offers from lakes. No crowds, and the fishing is very visual—you’re almost always casting to the shore, a logjam, or weedbed. The average size fish caught here will rival that of anywhere, and even on the slowest days a couple of big fish will show themselves. I will only be doing a limited number of these trips, so reserve your spot early. The rate for this trip is $450 for a full day for up to 2 anglers, larger groups can be accommodated.
