Captain
Steve Mortenson

Member since April 2016 Oshkosh, United States
Background
Steve Mortenson with Wisconsin's Anglin' Adventures Fishing Guide Service prides himself on being the first choice when it comes to catching trophy Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, colossal Northern Pike, Musky, Walleye, and Panfish. He's been successfully fishing tournaments for over 20 years and has taken several first-place finishes, which speaks enough about his angling expertise and knowledge. Capt. Steve also has a World Record Achievement Award, and he's come very close to breaking the Smallmouth Bass World Record for the catch-and-release category in the last 5 years.
Techniques
I am a very detailed fisherman. I love to pick apart a section of the lake and really figure out the pattern for that day. I love throwing lures like Wacky Worms, Drop Shots, Ned Rigs, Crankbaits, and Spinnerbaits, and if the weather has the right conditions. Top Water!
