What a great day on Melton Hill Lake with Steve Paul. He knows the water like he has been fishing it all his life. Exactly what our group was looking for and he moved things around to make it work for us. Awesome guy and expert Musky guide!

Hands down one of the best fishing trips we have ever been to.. me and my 9 year old son had an absolutely amazing time with Steve. He was extremely knowledgeable, entertaining and so patient with my son - answering his countless questions. The little guy caught a nice Muskie within the first 20 minutes of the trip. The catch of his lifetime :))) will be definitely booking again . Highly recommended!!!

Had Never caught a Muskie before. Got hooked up with Steve, had a blast. We put seven in the boat that day. Didn't realize what an accomplishment this was until latter. He is most knowledgeable and has numerous "suitcases" of tackle. Would highly recommend for beginners or experienced . Look forward to spending some time with him again this year. He LOVES his Muskies. 5/29/2019 Back again this year. After talking to some of my friends I had decided I was just incredibility lucky last year. Well Steven proved me wrong. Went out for an evening trip (short notice) and Steve had me on fish within 30 minutes. We put 6 in the net in about 6 hrs. Was able to get out again for a few hrs a couple of days later an "dang" back on fish again. I believe he probably has scales underneath that "fake" skin The man KNOWS (and loves) his Muskies. HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who wants to catch a nice Muskie. Beginners (me) or experienced. I have to say this , he does wear funny shoes and socks. LOL love ya Steven

Steve took us for a great afternoon/ evening of fishing. Hoping my son absorbed the knowledge he was passing on to us. Will definitely hit him up next time we are in town.
