"I have fished with Dave several times. It is always a highlight of my summer. It is a great day on the water learning the skills of Muskie fishing and great conversation to go with it. Regardless of catching a Muskie or not, a day on the Ranger with Dave will have an impact on you. Now, throw in the explosion of a Muskie on a topwater bait and you will never forget it!"

"My dad and I had the trip of a lifetime. Not only were we blessed to have an amazing guide who shared our values. We were also fortunate enough to catch two muskies within the first 20 minutes! Figure-eighting at the boat is the trick, my friends."

“Dave was an awesome guide. He put us on fish right away and often. Dave was wonderful with my son. He was a patient, friendly and supportive teacher and had him casting like a champ in no time.  We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We look forward to our next adventure with Dave.”

49" Muskie

"Dave is one of the most genuine, optimistic, and knowledgeable guides I’ve had the pleasure of going with. Always an awesome time and he knows how and where to find the big ones. I’m an avid largemouth guy, but the 49" has tempted me to convert at some point."

"Dave is a great fishing guide, especially for Muskie! I had never fished for anything bigger than a sunfish before but by the end of the day with Dave, I felt like a pro. You won’t regret having Dave take you out!"

Quinn Hobbs - Plymouth, Minnesota


"I have been Muskie fishing with Dave a number of times. Dave is a great guide and excellent teacher with a top of the line boat. He taught this novice fisherman to cast and reel in Muskie baits with confidence. During our trips, Dave filled me in on the lakes we were fishing on and strategies for luring and landing the elusive Muskie. These trips have been Summer highlights for me. Whether you are reeling in a fish or watching your bait, Dave makes it a fun and enjoyable time. It’s amazing how quickly the time goes. I highly recommend Metro Muskies!"

A highlight of every year! Dave is extremely knowledgeable, patient with all levels of angler skills, and a great teacher of fishing techniques needed to make you a very competent angler. All necessary equipment is provided with the boat being spacious and very clean. His demeanor is easy-going, friendly and attentive to the needs of his guests. I can not give a higher recommendation."

Muskie Mayhem

Three Fish in 90 Minutes

On a rainy August morning, Outdoor News Magazine author Ron Nelson and I struck muskie gold. He caught 2 muskies (a 44" and 45") and I boated a 45" fish all within an hour and a half. To the right is the article he wrote about the memorable morning. All three muskies are pictured below.
