“Any Fish, Any Tackle, Any Time!”

“Big Pike” Mike Thomas

Mike Thomas | St Croix River Guide

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 infor
mative, 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!
