Joe has guided for Ludlow's Island Resort for over 20 years. He is more than a great guide, he is a great teacher. He is a multi species fisherman who can get you on to the fish. But if the fish are not biting, you can be assured he will give you the tools to use when they are. He enjoys taking out children and adults, and works hard to make sure the guest has a memorable experience.

Joe is one of the top guides on Vermilion. Our resort uses many local guides but there only a few that I would put in the same category as Joe. With his many years of experience on Vermilion combined with his career background in education and Biology he provides a unique fishing experience for his customers. The only problem we have with Joe is that it's hard to get him - for every resort on the lake wants to hire him for their guests.

As a resort owner, choosing a guide for guests is not always an easy task. There are many things to consider, but first and foremost is the fact that you want your guests to receive the same high quality attention from a guide that you strive to give them yourself. We are comfortable in knowing Joe will do this for us. Joe has provided quality guiding service for guests at Muskego Point for over 20 years, and we are happy and proud to recommend him.

We expect smiles when our guests of all ages return from an outing with Joe. Thatís because they have enjoyed lively conversation, learned about the lake and the region, and had a few laughs. Because Joe has been guiding on Lake Vermilion for 20 years, they probably had great fishing as well! He knows where the fish are. Since happy guests are our goal, we are always glad to send them out with Joe. We recommend him highly.

After guiding on Vermilion for more than 20 years, Joe knows the fish and where they are biting, hands down. His experience as a guide, as well as a teacher, leaves him one of the most sought after fishing guides on Lake Vermilion. You will not leave his boat without learning the basics of the various species of the lake. A solid choice whether young or old, we are happy to recommend him to our guests knowing his friendly attention will offer a great fishing experience.
