Muskie & Walleye
Your captain, Josh Berken, was born and raised in Green Bay, Wisconsin, calling Lake Michigan and the Bay of Green Bay, his home waters for more than twenty years, chasing multiple species such as; walleyes, muskies, salmon, trout, and northern pike. Along with being a certified Charter Captain and guide, Josh is also a devoted family man. He loves to spend time with his daughter and girl friend taking time to share this beautiful fishery with them, as well. Captain Josh’s love for the sport of fishing began on the lakes in the Vilas County area at the age of five years old, when he used to visit his grandparents. The first thing he always wanted to do was get in the boat and start fishing. From there, his love for the sport grew. His father showed him the ropes on Green Bay and Lake Michigan chasing giant, yellow perch, walleyes, trout and salmon. Now his love for the sport is an ADDICTION!

Walleye, Sm Mouth Bass & Ice Fishing
My goal is to not only put clients in a position to catch fish, but to educate them on what I do and how I do it, so they may take away the knowledge to produce similar results on their own. In 1995 I moved to WI and began my engineering career while exploring and learning the waters of Sturgeon Bay, Green Bay, and Lake Winnebago. I also have spent much time on the Wolf River System, Mississippi River, Lake Superior, and several other lakes and rivers in this great state. I have over 30 years fishing and boating on the Great Lakes. I am a USCG Licensed Captain (since 2007) and a Wisconsin Licensed Guide. I have also been trained in basic and advanced First Aid and CPR/AED. I have many years of tournament experience under my belt; 7 time Cabela’s National Team Championship Qualifier, and 3 time Cabela’s NTC All American Top 25 finisher. I specialize in fishing on the trophy rich waters of Green Bay (Including the Fox River), and Sturgeon Bay, along with chartering for Trout and Salmon on Lake Michigan out of Kewaunee and Sturgeon Bay. I spend my winter months guiding for Walleye, Whitefish and Trophy Pike on Green Bay during the ice season. I have permanent rental ice shacks and several portable shacks which I use to stay on top of the hottest bites on Green Bay for my clients.
Being a fisherman for most his life, Randy started fishing trout streams in Northern Wisconsin as a young boy. He was so determined to go fishing, he would pack his fishing gear on his bike and ride it through the woods in order to get to those hard to get to spots. When Randy got his first boat his passion for the sport just continued on. He fished for Muskie, Northern, Bass, and panfish. It didn't matter what kind of fish it was, his passion for fishing continued to grow. Even when raising a family Randy was still able to get on the water, not as often as he liked, but often enough to give the same passion to his son, who today is his tournament partner. Together they fish for walleyes on Green Bay, and lake Winnebago. Over the many years Randy has fished, his passion has focused him on one fish, Walleyes! One of Randy's assets is to give anybody the knowledge to put fish in the boat whether it be your personal trophy or just a meal of fresh fish.
