Joel is an outdoor author, educator, tournament angler, and guide who happens to be a die-hard musky nut.  He has spent his life pursuing big toothy critters in the waters of the upper Midwest and Canada, all the while enjoying the beauty of the outdoors in “God’s Country.”  Through countless days and nights on the water, Joel has worked hard to uncover big-fish locations while perfecting the techniques necessary to produce trophy pike and muskies fish from them. His boat is not only responsible for some of the largest muskies caught and released yearly in North-Central Wisconsin.

As an outdoor educator and guide, Joel is involved in a myriad of fishing-related promotional and educational events including teaching fishing techniques through both classroom and on-the-water clinics. He is active on the internet, providing articles and fishing reports to various fishing-related web sites in addition to appearing on television and doing web-radio shows.  Joel is an experienced tournament angler as well as a published outdoor author having featured articles in Musky Hunter and Muskie magazines and is a contributor as one of the “Ellis Experts” to On Wisconsin Outdoors magazine; in addition, he writes his on-line blog “Guide Notes” on, is a contributor to Outdoors on, and authors his highly-acclaimed syndicated weekly newspaper column, “Guides Corner”.
