I’m not sore about not having you take us...the tips you gave me have allowed us to catch fish...but I think each trip is different and you need to access client expectations early in the process

Bill, I’ve been out with you on the water a couple of times and we have another trip set for October. I appreciate your explanation of the various types of clients who hire guides. To anyone who is thinking about hiring a guide you should understand that you’re paying for knowledge. Catching fish is the extra part. There is a reason it is called fishing and not called catching. To Bill, all the other guides and all the people who share their knowledge of TRL, I say thank you.

I agree!!  I'm not a great fisherman, but the success I have on TR is due to the trips we've taken with Bill.  And no one knows how expensive he can be.  After the first trip 5 or 6 years ago and the wife caught a 5-6 pound LM I had to buy a fishing boat!!!!!!!!!!!

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he has to have a boat, 10 rods and reels and $4,000 worth of tackle.

There was a pretty good walleye bite last year at this time, about 25ft down remember?

I would want you to find me a 10# 30" walleye in tablerock just one, live bait is fine. No big deal :grin:

I really appreciate the info that you post here,  if I could swing it I would fish with you, and listen to every word. Not sucking up just thankful.

I think a fast action jigging spoon bite is about as fun as it gets, no matter the species.
