This fishing trip is one of our family annual highlights we look forward to every year. We don't just catch fish. You and Dave help to make the day entertaining, funny, informative, sometimes a bit adventurous, great tasting, and certainly productive.
I love to fish. Because of you and Dave, I have become a far better fisherman than the first time I wet a line almost seven years ago.
Have a great day and again, Thanks!!

I had the opportunity in May 2012 to attend a 3 day guided fishing trip on the Wisconsin River with the Willis( Da Fishing Fibs) Boy's. It was one of the best experiences I have had in along time. I had not been fishing in 30 plus years, and I caught more fish in 3 days of fishing with you guy's than I had caught my entire life.
You guy's really do offer a very unique and enjoyable experience. You really know how to make a person feel comfortable, from baiting our jigs, to the shore lunch, to the best fishing I ever had.I have nothing but good things to say about our time on the water. I have a few friends that are avid walleye fisherman and let them know about the unique fishing experience that I had and given them your contact info.
I look forward to enjoy this experience again, hopefully it will not be in 30 years.

Hey kenny, i can't thank you and Dave for the great day of fishing. It was a perfect way to spend my birthday. The knowledge you two have is the best I've seen for knowing how to and where to catch fish. The service you two offer is the greatest there could be. If anybody comes there and goes with you and Dave and cant say they had the best time of there life with you two ,they don’t like to have fun then. Hope your summer goes good for both of you and we will see you on Sept 23rd. Again thx for a great day.

A Big Thank YOU Kenny and Dave for such a great day we had with your services. We had so much fun, caught some fish, had great weather, and made some new friends. Can't get much better than that. (oh yea, the cocktails were quite tasty too).
Thanks again,enjoy the summer, and we will definitely see you again this fall,

First off I want to thank you for the great time we had a few weeks ago, Jeremy still talks about it everyday. You and Dave run an outstanding service and treat your customers above and beyond what is expected. Everyone in our group really appreciates the extent you guys go to make sure everyone has an outstanding trip, again Thank You so much for the great memories and great fishing you and Dave provide for me and the entire group.

Kenny, WOW! Life seldom provides many opportunities that become lasting, positive
memories. A day on the water with my two adult sons (we live 160 - 300
miles apart these days), uber-cooperative fish (can we say the largest
walleye my oldest son Brett has caught in 15 years of chasing Sir Walter as
we call walleyes? Yes, is the answer!)based on a combination of time of
year, type of day, and most important - our excellent guide and new
friend(without you . . . it would never have happened yesterday!).
Not only did you put us on them from the start, but you kept us fishing as
snags, baiting, netting, unhooking,measuring, and releasing was covered by
our guide who ran around that pontoon like a sprinter on 'roids! Seriously,
it was the "little things" you did that became the big things the boys and I
discussed that separate you from the numerous other guides with whom we've
fished over the past two decades.
Thanks Kenny, for helping make the day so memorable for the three of us! We
are discussing our options for joining you on the Wisconsin, again and soon!
That four-letter word gets in the way, WORK, but we want you to know how
much we enjoyed our day!!!

Just wanted to drop you a little note to tell you how much fun my son and I had fishing with you over the Labor Day weekend. This was my 3rd trip with you and as always we had great day. You put us on to some nice fish and we had a very productive day. I also wanted to thank you for spending extra time with my son (8 years old) and helping him catch "his biggest fish ever!" He has retold the story how he caught that fish countless times and each time he tells the story it makes me realize that is a memory he will have with him forever.
We will see you soon,

My son and I had a fantastic fishing trip on August 20th. This is the first time we used a guide and are we glad we found you on the internet. You were so focused on getting us to fish and keeping us fishing. We caught our first walleyes, and the crappies and bluegills we kept to eat were absolutely phenomenal - we wish we would have taken more time to catch more of those ( I know, you did tell us). The Wisconsin River is an incredible fish factory. We are sold on the Stevens Point area and you will definately see us again for fall or spring fishing.

Thanks for the trip, we had a great time, both you and Dave were friendly, attentive, and took the time to teach us beginners a few things. We have fished with Guides before, and you and Dave just moved to number one on our list. We look forward to getting together again. Good fishing and say Hello to Dave for us also.

KENNY,THANKS AGAIN FOR TAKING OUT OUR STAFF. WE ALL THOROUGHLY ENJOYED OURSELVES AND EVEN THOUGH WE ALL HAD A GREAT TIME ALL OF MY CO-WORKERS WERE ABLE TO EXPERIENCE THE WISCONSIN RIVER FIRST HAND. SOMETHING THAT NONE OF THEM HAD EVER DONE BEFORE.

I want to start by thanking you for a very memorable and fun couple of days of fishing. Our trip started out a little rough with the weather not cooperating. The fish seemed to enjoy eating in the rain because we started nailing them immediately upon entering the water. I never knew that we could catch catfish while trolling with a plug and a Rapala so this trip was also educational for me. Our first day was very action packed as we trolled up and down the river every 6 to 8 minutes produced a decent sized catfish that was definitely good enough to filet and eat. There were also some smallmouth and some small walleye that we caught among the catfish. With the weather being as bad as it was I suggested to Kenny that we change our scheduled full day to a half and then do our full day the next day with the nice weather that was forecasted for that day. Kenny was very understanding and had no problem accomodating me and my son to make our trip as enjoyable as possible. The next day on the water started out a little slower on the trolling so we headed out for an early shore lunch and am I glad we did. The fresh fried fish and red potatoe fries were unbelievably delicious. After lunch we went out on a different part of the river and Kenny taught us how to fish on a jig and minnow. We started landing walleye big enough to keep and they kept on coming steady all afternoon. The wind was howling so I think that may have slowed us a little but we still brought them in. So overall I am very satisfied with the job that Kenny did. He was very kind, courteous, patient and overall very knowledgeable about putting us on fish and teaching us the best methods to bring them in. Every snag he had a fresh pole ready to go and every time I had a bite that took my minnow he was ready with another one on hand to put right back on the hook. I will definitely look to Kenny's services in the future and hopefully as soon as this fall for another fun and fish filled adventure.
Thank you again,
Jose and Angel Lope

Kenny, My family and I wanted to thank you and Dave. We had a great time.
It's always nice to catch a lot, but hey it's called fishing and not
catching. We all felt you guys worked hard. We kept you running with all the
snags. I was especially pleased how patient you guys were with the kids. And
lunch was truly great. We appreciate the effort you gave us. We look forward to seeing you again. I'll keep in touch.
May 09, 2009
Thank You so much Kenny for an absolutely wonderful bachelor party and for a Great Fishing experience. Everyone had a lot of fun and we sincerely appreciate all of your hard work and expertise in helping us land the big ones. Not only did my Father catch his biggest Walleye of his life, I caught my personal best a 26 1/2 walleye...Thank You. I will definitely pass the word along to anyone I know looking for an expiernced and personable guide and certainly will keep you in mind for the future. We will be back!!!! Thanks again and Best of luck on the rest of the season.

I didn’t get a chance to thank you for the great trip the “Walleye Brothers” and friends had this past weekend. I had a great time and caught some nice fish. You and Dave did a phenomenal job of not only putting us on fish, but also keeping us rigged and working the net to perfection! Although I’m still thinking about the one that got away, I think that was God’s way of making sure I come back for as many years as I am invited.
Please accept my gratitude for an exceptional fishing trip.

Who knew fishing could be such a “posh” experience! You and Dave were awesome – from knowing exactly where to find the fish that day, to baiting our hooks and being there with the net ready to pull in our NUMEROUS catch! I’m sure part of my fun (well, most of it) was that I caught more fish than the 4 men I was with! (21 in 4 hours!!) Watching Marty reel in that enormous catfish was pretty cool as well. The shore lunch was delicious – and a wonderful way to wrap up our morning on the river. I can’t wait for Spring to head up north again – I just have to find some more customers willing to be humiliated by my newly discovered talent!
Thanks again to both you and Dave for handling all the details and making it such a unique and relaxing experience!
October 6, 2008
I would like to thank you for the great time on the water. The energy that you and Dave put forth to show everybody on the boat a good time is unbelievable. I don't believe I have ever fished with anybody who can put you on so many fish and still have a chance at the big one. The company was great, the fishing was great, and the shore lunch was great. I would consider myself an avid fisherman but have only been on a few guided trips and never went back to the same guide. I WILL BE BACK! Thanks for the great time.
September 30, 2008
The boys and I really enjoyed ourselves and would do it again in a heart beat.
You and Dave really went all out to make everyone comfortable, keep our lines in the water and put some fish in the boat. The Shore lunch was excellant and worth every Bite. Thanks again for a very memorable day.
The pictures are great.
All the best,

I would like to take a moment and thank you for a great fishing trip. I live near Stevens Point and had family visiting for Malaga, Spain. We think it is about 8,000 miles from Emilo's home and the boat landing. This was Emilo's first time fishing in Wisconsin and his second time fishing in America. It was you Ken that made this a trip we will never forget. We got more fish than we anticipated and thought you guide services was just great. Thanks again.

I had not been fishing in at least 30 years and my son had never
been fishing. I think this was the best time we ever had together.
I did not catch that 40 pound Gold Fish Kenny told me about but
the 35 fish we caught was compensation enough to make me want to
come back again and again. Great job Kenny we had a ball.
P.S. Please do not tell anyone else about that Gold
Fish he’s mine. LOL GO Bears

We had a great time and I particularly appreciated the manner and
care in which you both took in providing the time, to deliver your
services, to a young child that had never experienced anything like
it before. In retrospect we should have brought some of the catfish
home, but also in retrospect I have no idea how long it would have
taken to consume three dozen large catfish. In any event it was
a memorable experience that I hope we all enjoyed. Do you catch
catfish like this all of the time? The river has to be full of them.
Thank you both, and what a great lunch.
June 11, 2008
I just wanted to take the time to thank you again for the outstanding
trip that you provided for us. Once again you have proven why we
continue to come back each year and now hopefully again this fall.
Through the rough wind and hot sunny days you managed to find the
fish and even hook us into a couple of big ones that will only bring
good stories to tell and fond memories to remember. The time you
spend for us getting ready, getting bait, gas, and providing all
of the equipment, truly makes our trip easy and more than accomidating
than we could possibly imagine. Catching 226 fish is the most fish
that I have ever caught in my life, and I know that we could not
have done it without you. The time we spend there seems like it
flies by, and never look forward to having to come back to the reality
of life "Working", but working is what allows us to make
it up there a couple times a year. Well I'm sure your going to be
out fishing so I don' t want to keep you much longer. Again thanks
for everything and look forward to seeing you in the fall. Tell
Dave we appreciate him and all he does as well, and hopefully we
can see more of him next time. Ok keep a tight line.

Words are not enough to explain how much of a great time I had last
week. For me, getting back to nature is a soul searching experience.
It cleans the soul. The quest for the golden grail goes on. I will
find my five pound walleye. I know it will happen. Seeing those
two kids having such a great time fishing, catching their first
walleyes was a joy. They will take that memory with them forever.
You just cant buy that kind of thing in a store. You and Dave were
fantastic. Your professional service was greatly appreciated but
the best thing about you two, is that your both so dam friendly.
Not only do you have a customer for ever, you have also made a friend.

Well yes...I'm back to the grind. I don't know where to start..........
First I must say THANK YOU!!!....... We hit the water hard.......Point
I'm going to make is I never felt that I was there taking up your
time. I always felt comfortable asking questions, or needing help
getting un-snagged. Your kindness really showed with the time you
took making sure my experience was the best. Saturday afternoon,
....... I caught my biggest walleye, and I'm still baffled with
the northern I caught. We will never know what happened there......Sunday,
there I want to send my biggest thanks to you and Dave. You two
really helped us out, never hesitating with baiting our hook, or
giving us a pole to use while you fixed the other. Ashley really
had a good time, thanks for all the help and making her experience
a memorable one. I'm still not hearing the end of this by the way,
she is already talking about next year and she is going to catch
the biggest fish. You guys really are kind people that made the
trip a memorable and comfortable trip. Every thing that you did
was appreciated. If it were not for you and Dave the trip would
not have been a success. I look forward to seeing you in late May
to early June next year. Gary and I are already talking about it,
Date: September 9, 2007
Wow! What a great day. Not only did we catch lots of fish and have
a blast, you shared with us to make us better at fishing when we
go on our own. Since the day we went with you, we have had more
success on the days we get out to enjoy the Wisconsin water ways.
You were a fantastic host. My wife loved not having to touch the
bait... and as soon as I got caught on the bottom, you just switched
poles with me so I could keep fishing. Rule 1, you can't catch fish
if you don't have a pole in the water.
August 11, 2007
Thanks again for the wonderful day we had with you and Dave Kinney.
Matt and Eric absolutely loved the experience. When it comes to
Customer Service you don't take a back seat to anyone.
Matt and Eric have now returned to their respective homes in Vancouver,
Wa and Richardson, Tx. However, our fond memories of their visit
to Wisconsin will always include the wonderful time we had catching
fish with the expert help provided by you and Dave.
We are already planning next years trip and will once again include
you and your guide service.
Wishing you only the best!

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how very much
we enjoyed our day of fishing with you. The kids really enjoyed
their first fishing "trip". The shore lunch was delicious!
The scenery on the river was beautiful. You both were more than
generous with your time. Thanks for being so patient with beginning
fisherman (especially Little Joe) In short, we had a GREAT time
and we will look forward to fishing with you again next year!

Thanks for the pictures, now I really
know that the guy's were fishing instead of just drinking beer.
Joe and Barry had a GREAT GREAT time. They have both recommended
your services to several people already. I know for sure a couple
of them are going to call you for some Fishing Time this year. Thank
You also for the Gift Certificate I presented Joe at Christmas.
I know that Joe and Barry are already talking about coming back
It's been a pleasure.
