About the Captain

I have enjoyed fishing since I was a kid, and now as a father teaching my kids to fish and camp owner it is truly a dream come true. For me, it is very rewarding to take people out on the water and share my passion with them on a daily basis. Fishing is a great way to relax and Lake of the Woods is an amazing, productive body of water.
