Way More Than a Fishing Trip!

How about a three boat Muskegon River float trip to honor 80 year old Grandpa Ken on this notable birthday? Totally cool, that's what it was today with Ken, son Scott, and granddaughter Colleen. As I've noted before, I love these family outings, and today's...

Perseverance

Back in the day, I never believed that while fishing, such a thing as "The Bite" existed.  Having guided commercially now for some 14 years, though, boy, has my thinking changed!  Some days, the bite starts hot, then turns cold.  Other days, vice-versa. And then...

Pancakes Anyone?

Our RiverQuest customers treat us guides very well and regularly thank us with gratuities at day's end for which we are most grateful. Certainly, today was no exception with host Jeff S generously tipping me and his guest Jeff bestowing a unique thanks.  An ex-Marine,...
