About your Guide:
Steve Genson is a full time professional fisherman. For the past decade he has been guiding for muskies on his home waters in the Hayward Lakes region of northwestern Wisconsin. With B.S. degree in fisheries biology, Steve passes on his knowledge to his clients about such things as seasonal fish location, lure choice and presentation, baitfish movements, boat control, and much more. You will leave the boat with a greater understanding of the sport.
His true passion is the pursuit of trophy muskies.
Steve's guide service releases many of the largest fish caught in the area. Being on the water everyday gives him the advantage to stay on hot lakes and patterns and this translates into more fish boated by clients. Genson's Fish Hunts is fully licensed and insured.
Steve is a young, energetic, extremely hardworking guide. Steve fishes every day, all season long, and his goal is to provide an exciting, enjoyable day on the water as well as teach you how to become a better angler on your own.
