Steven Paul has been fishing ever since he was a little kid and guiding people on exciting fishing trips since he was 12. He's been guiding the local waters for the past 5 years, meticulously learning the best-hidden fishing spots. He's a true pro when it comes to fishing, especially Muskellunge. He holds the Tennessee State Record in both weight and length. Not surprising, since he's a 3rd generation Musky angler! He also writes for multiple fishing publications and is active in education anglers new to fishing these great beasts.
