Guided Musky Trips
Is musky fishing on your bucket list?
New for 2018
We have a Full stand up Canopy for the boat that we use for days that we are trolling and its going to rain. We can also use it for the sunny days when trolling to help keep the sun off us.
At Handlebarz guide service we thrive on the hunt for that next musky to crush your bait boat side. What other fresh water fish wants your rod reel and lure more then you do? None of them! That is what makes casting for musky so special, when they chase your bait right to the boat and then have their snout on the bait as you do the figure 8 or BIG 0 no matter how fast you go they are right there looking to inhale it for a snack. My heart rate is up as I wrote this down as I can relive so many musky doing this to me.
I am Mike Parker I have been musky fishing since 2005 were I started off trolling like everyone else in the area but my heart has always been as a caster. It took many years of trail and error to put together a great casting program but in the end it has been so rewarding for myself and my family and friends. I am looking forward to getting out on the water with you and helping you put a Lake St.Clair spotted or tiger musky in the net. I am also the owner of Handlebarz musky lures which we use a lot when fishing for them through the season. My passion for fishing started when I was around 5 years old when dad first took me fishing in Nova Scotia off an old train bridge for trout. Ever since that summer trip my brain will not leave the water and now that I am able to do it sharing what I love to do with others is the next part of my life's journey.
