My name is Rob Manthei. I live to fish and hunt. Whether it is chasing the elusive whitetail or tangling with the mighty musky, I take the same pride and preparation to endure both. I started fishing when I was two years old, and hunted since I was able at twelve. I have fished the waters of Vilas, Oneida, and Iron counties, in Northern Wisconsin, all of my life.
When it comes to fishing, my personal favorite is the musky. I also fish for walleyes and both large and smallmouth bass. I have been avidly chasing muskies seriously since I was about 17 years old.
This year will be my 27th year in heavy pursuit of the mighty musky. Whether your preference is walleye, musky, or bass I will teach and lead you to the best locations and techniques at that particular time of the year.
I am a strong believer in catch and release. All muskies, I feel should be released, and the larger female walleyes (which are the spawners) should be released too. There is nothing wrong with keeping a good mess of fish for a meal here and there. I love to eat fish too!!!!
