I'm “Big Pike Mike” Thomas, fishing guide operating out of the St. Croix
Valley of Western WI. I'm one of a lucky few who has taken the leap of
faith and is making a living doing what I love most, and do best,
teaching folks to fish and enjoy the outdoors right in their own back
yard. I offer a true Multi species experience, utilizing a wide variety
of techniques & modes to stay on the hot bite. Fly Fishing
Wisconsin’s amazing spring creeks, we can do that. How about chasing
big fall Sturgeon on the St. Croix? We can do that too, and everything
in between. Every season is special, I design trips based on the best
available opportunity, information and instinct. Whether you’re a
seasoned veteran or beginning angler, I’ll craft a day which will be
informative, memorable and most of all FUN!
Fly Fishing is my passion, any species any time! For 2011 I'm changing things up a little and will no longer be offering the lower St Croix as an option but adding other warm water fisheries and small boat excursions instead. This summer we'll have a chance to spend time on the Mpls Metro Lakes, local small river fishing and upper St Croix, from a small boat and all geared towards muskies on the fly rod.
Local cold water fishing on the Kinni and the Rush is the mainstay of my business, I have 25 years of experience on these waters and would love to show you what secrets await. Whether your a beginner or a seasoned angler, my trips offer something for everyone.
Use my gear or bring your own. Book a full day and I’ll prepare a gourmet river side lunch!
