Gary Enos

Gary started his muskie career in 1979 in the Northwoods of Wisconsin fishing the famed Vilas County. He landed his first muskie on a Suick, and shortly after bought every color available at that time. His home state of Indiana did not have a good stocking program in place at this time, so he spent a lot of time traveling to find good muskie waters. The Suick Thriller increased his numbers when fishing new waters. By the mid 1990's Indiana's stocking program begin to really take off, and he moved to North Webster (the heart of Indiana muskie fishing) in 2003. As of 2008 Gary has taken his passion into a successful guiding career. The Shack Attack Lures Curly Sue is his go to lure, but a Suick Thriller is always close by.

Erv Keller

I'm Erv Keller and I have fished the waters of Iron, Oneida, and Vilas Counties in Wisconsin for over 30 years and have owned Erv Keller Guide Service in Boulder Junction WI since 2003.

I'm proud to be a new member of the Suick Pro Staff because I rely on Suick products to produce great catches for myself and my clients not only for Muskie but for Pike, Walleye and Bass as well.

I'm usually seen during the winter months at sport/outdoor shows promoting the area and fishing for the Chambers of Commerce of Boulder Junction or Mercer Wisconsin. I have presented free fishing seminars for each chamber during the summer months. I've been featured chasing Muskies in the Boulder Junction area on the Illinois Outdoors telivision show with Don Dziedzina.

I can be contacted year-round at 715-605-2349 regarding fishing at its finest.

Christian Drost

In my life it's all around the experience. The chase, the hunt, the catch. The best fish to exist on this planet, whether it be Muskie or Pike. On the continent of Europe and Holland in particular it's all about the Pike. I've been on the water for as long as I can remember, in the early days we used to fish with Cisco Kids for Zander, but times change and so did the fishery. It's all about the Pike now! For me fishing for Pike is all about lures. Take the 9" Thriller for example, once you get the "hang" of it nothing comes in between. My favorite jerkbait for a long long time and produced by the Suick Lure Company, quality products from the USA!



Andy Hendrickson

My name is Andy Hendrickson and I live in Rhinelander WI. I own and operate Hendo's Angling Expeditions where I guide full time in Oneida and Vilas Counties. In addition to guiding, I fish a handful of muskie tournaments each year including events of the Professional Musky Tournament Trail.

Growing up in LaCrosse, WI we would take summer vacations to the area and I always dreamed about moving to "Muskie Country" to become a guide. After five years of active duty in the Army I made my wish come true. I moved up north and started pursuing my dreams. Suick lures have been a staple of mine while fishing and guiding muskies ove the past 10 years.

Todd Schulz

My name is Todd Schulz and I own and operate Musky Moon Guide Service out of Merrill WI. I guide on many beautiful waters in Northern and North Central WI. I very much enjoy and take pride in taking people out musky fishing and teaching them the skills that will help them become more successful when they are out on the water themselves. Each year I donate a full weekend trip to the Wounded Warrior Project, and by doing this it gives our wounded service men and women a chance to relax and enjoy time out on the water. I wouldn't be able to do all of this if it wasn't for all of the love and support from my wife Hilary and our son Tanner. They are my foundation and I am very thankful to have them by my side through my journeys.

Caiden Ramsell

Caiden Ramsell "The Muskie Kid" comes from a long line of "muskie nuts!" He is the grandson of world renown auther, guide, historian, and muskie mentor, Larry Ramsell. Caiden began his persuit of the elusive Esox as a teenager after a short fishing trip while his grandfather was visiting his home state of Illinois. Caiden, now an adult with a family of his own, spends his free time pursuing muskies. He is a strong supporter of catch and release and often when asked about it he says, "Dead fish don't grow." He also spends countless hours researching and studying to further his knowledge and continue the Ramsell family legacy of providing accurate factual information on muskies, as well as being able to hopefully pass his love and knowledge of muskie hunting on to his two sons.

Glenn McDonald

Hi, my name is Glenn McDonald. I've lived my whole life in beautiful Vermilion Bay Ontario, nestled on the shores of Eagle Lake. Always an avid fisherman, my hard core pursuit of Musky started ten years ago with help from my wife's family. I started fishing and guiding for musky on the infamous Long Legged/Stork Lake chain in remote Northwestern Ontario. I recently started Buck-Tails Hunting and Fishing Guide Service, and will fish most local lakes including Eagle, Cedar, Canyon, and Indian Chain.

A huge proponent of CPR, I take every precaution to keep fish healthy. I also realize that any fish may be a true "Fish of a Lifetime" for my clients. My fishing partners and I take a great deal of pride in trying to capture the perfect photo for clients while balancing the health of the fish. 

My wife, Kyla McDonald is manager at Bobby's Sport Shop and as such we have access to almost any gear and tackle. I continue to use and support Suick Lures. I have trust in their products and know when I use one or recommend one to guest or customers that it will work as advertised.

I hope to grow the musky fishing community by showing new anglers both young and old the thrill of catching one of these elusive beasts!

Matt Ross 

I am a lifelong Wisconsin Resident deeply rooted in fishing and hunting. I have been fishing since I could walk and began chasing muskies almost 16 years ago. There was something special about thse toothy fish that really drew me in. I moved to the Chippewa Valley area and have been chasing these fish in the Chippewa River Valley since 2007. I also chase Muskies across the rest of Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Canada. I devote most of my free time to being on the water chasing all fish species in Wisconsin, but Muskie remains my true passion. I started my own business guiding part time in 2014. I enjoy sharing information and teaching all experience levels alike as well as learning new things from other people. The Chippewa Valley has some diverse fisheries with many great rivers including the confines of the Flambeau and Chippewa Rivers, lake complexes, and flowages, so there are always plenty of options. I am always using time on the water to gather information about patterns and movements of these fish. There is always something to learn with muskies and that's what keeps me coming back for more! Suick lures have been a staple in my boat for many years and I am excited to be a part of Team Suick!

Fischer Smith

Fischer is a two time Top 5 Finisher in the National Muskies Inc. Youth Release Div. for 17 and under. He was able to release 30 muskies in the 2018 season. He is also a three time First Wisconsin Muskies Inc. Chapter Release Div. Champion. In the 2018 Chippewa Valley Muskie League he and teammate Jason Smith won the championship with 12 muskies caught, with 7 over 40", and 5 of them by Fischer including a 47.5. At the age of 9 he has released 79 muskies over 30" mostly casting. Fischer is also a seminar speaker at clubs and sport shows and is active in youth outdoors.









Jason Smith

I have spent countless hours figuring out the fine details on the Chippewa River system and multiple other West Central Wisconsin lakes to become very successful fishing those waters. Time on the water is key to staying dialed in. I have presented 42 seminars at various clubs and sport shows over the last 25 years educating the patterns and tactics that put fish in the boat. I like to share what makes me successful on the water with other anglers through guiding and social media and I believe in social media being a fantastic way to reach out to anglers these days. I operate Jason Smith's Guide Service guiding West Central Wisconsin Waters in Chippewa, Rusk, Eau Claire, and Barron counties for Muskie with a major focus in educating and getting our youth into Muskies. I guide on waters such as Lake Wissota, Dairyland Flowage, and Lake Holcombe as well as many others. I also operate a Facebook group page called "Muskie Fishing Tips and Tricks." It is one of the largest muskie only groups and is an educational, promotional, and sharing site started in 2015 and continues to grow. I believe this is the fastest way to reach other anglers today.
