Jim Kopjo is known as the “Crappie Professor”. His aggressive style of fishing helps him to quickly establish patterns. This makes for informative seminars that shed light on common problems faced by anglers. Jim has been guiding for 16 years and fishes local and regional tournaments. He participated in the Open Water Crappie U.S.A. Tournament Trail, ranking 11th in the nation. In the 2013 North American Ice Fishing Circuit, Jim finished the season ranked 8th in the nation. He enjoys teaching others his techniques while expanding his own knowledge along the way. Jim also volunteers with several local biologists, devoting countless hours in the designing, placement, and preservation of habitats.

Mike Caldarazzo is a National Freshwater Fishing Hall Of Fame angler with over 30-years of muskie/pike fishing experience.  While his specialty is arguably muskies, Mike is equally adept at catching northern pike and other gamefish.  Mike is a fishing educator and pro-staff member for Guides Choice Pro Shop based in Eagle River, WI.  Mike is a frequent guest speaker at seminars, sport shows, and muskie banquets.  He has captured well-over 2500 muskies…, including dozens of trophy-sized fish.

Mike’s passion lies in helping anglers catch either their first musky, or the fish of their dreams. Mikes knowledge can greatly improve encounters with trophy-class fish.  Mike has been featured in Midwest Outdoors Magazine, Saskatchewan Trivia Challenge and he competes in the Professional Muskie Tournament Trail.

On July 18, 2000  – while fishing Lake Athabasca in Saskatchewan Canada, Mike was fortunate enough to capture an extremely large Northern Pike which measured 54” in length.  There were 6 witnesses to his catch, including 2 local Guides.  After a thorough confirmation process with the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Mike was inducted as the (All-Tackle) World Record holder (Catch & Release Division).
