Captain
Douglas Ide

Member since March 2015 Williams Bay, United States
Background
Having fished all his life, Captain Douglas decided to impart his passion onto his children. Taking them out to fish regularly, people quickly saw how good he was at teaching and guiding, and advised him to start doing it professionally. He took it up as a full-time job and has been successful in growing his business to where it is today. He still loves introducing people to the sport of fishing and seeing their excitement as they reel in their first fish of many.
Techniques
Bass and muskie are my 2 favorite fish . We also offer other species. It's great to mix it up sometimes.

I took my 13 year old son and two friends for his birthday and we made many memories and had such an amazing time.
