I am full for the remainder of 2023 unless December is warm enough to get in a couple of trips. I will be on Kentucky Lake most of November. Give me a call at 217-840-1221.

These are my plans for 2024 since I am back guiding full-time. I will be in attendance at the Collinsville Show, Schaumburg Show, Tinley Park Show but I would nail these down beforehand as I book a bunch of trips with these shows.
