I have hired fishing guides from Canada to Mexico, and everywhere in-between, and Josh is unquestionably the best. I can say, without any hyperbole, that Josh put us on the greatest fishing day of my life. In a span of just forty five minutes I caught four or five nice-sized northerns, battled a musky, observed a baby bald-eagle diving into the water after prey, and my nephew and father both caught a massive bass. In fact, the bass my dad caught was not too far off from the state record. After we left the lake we sat around stunned for an hour, barely able to believe how fortunate we were. Additionally, Josh was able to coach my six year old nephew in a way that was helpful and patient but not harsh, unlike some other guides I have encountered; he even went so far as to pack him delicious chocolate chip cookies for the trip. The experience literally could not have been any better.

We wanted to introduce my 6-year-old grandson to fishing, but know Wisconsin lakes better than Minnesota ones---and that first fishing experience better be a good one! We hired Josh as guide for half a day, and man, he delivered---not only fish, but such a positive, happy experience for Quinlan! And the fish: 100 sunfish, no kidding; an enormous large mouth bass, and two giant northerns. The only problem is that for the rest of Q's life, he'll likely not have as action-filled a day on the water! Josh was simply terrific. We were thrilled.

I just completed my 3rd guided fishing trip with Josh...and I live in ARIZONA! That is right, Josh is so good at what he does, that I actually fly out to Minnesota just to experience the guided trips that Josh gives. He really is the best guide that I have ever had. He puts you on fish when others are struggling. He has such a positive attitude and his passion for fishing rubs off on you. He truly feels like a friend when you are fishing with him. In the guide trips I have done with him, we have pulled in 3 musky, 30+ northerns (some massive), and some huge largemouth bass. I am already looking forward to the next chance that I get to fly out to Minnesota for some fishing with Josh! Thanks again Josh for such a great trip!

I want to thank you for the amazing time on the water. This was a great success on my part and on the fishing end of things. Everything I heard about Josh and his passion for fishing was blown out of the water, his patience, intensity and knowledge when we had fish following baits was like nothing I've ever seen before. Thanks again and I will for surely be booking more trips in the future and spreading the word!

I'm 49 years old and some of my first memories are of fishing, but I must say the 2 days fishing with Josh are the best days I've ever had on the water. I flew in from Denver just to go fishing in Minnesota with Josh. I specifically came for a big musky. Well I landed a 41" and a 43" musky. 2 northerns, 28" and 37". 3 large mouth bass, 2 at 20" and 1 at 21" and almost 6 pounds. All I can say is wow, thank you Josh for the trip of a lifetime. I would trade 3 days fishing on a Lake Superior chartered boat for 1 day fishing for the MIGHTY MUSKY with Josh. Thank you Josh and Laura.

I have had the opportunity to fish with several professional guides over the years, but none have had the knowledge of fishing or the ability to find fish like Josh. I have to thank him for giving me the opportunity to catch the biggest fish of my life! Thanks Josh!

Josh Stevenson eats, breathes and sleeps muskie fishing. If I want to know something about muskies -- or metro fishing in general -- he is my go-to expert. Not only that, he is a fun and articulate guy. You are guaranteed to learn something about life or fishing from him when you are on the water.

I have been fishing with my father since I was 5 years old. I am fortunate now to have children of my own and was blessed to have the opportunity to go out with Josh and my 6 year old son Jack to go after so big musky and pike. That day, Jack, my 6 year old, caught a 40? 20lb northern and if it were not for Josh, this memory would never be there to share. I hope only the best for Josh and hope to stay in touch in the future as he is one of the few people I now who has more passion for fishing than me.

I first met Josh when he guided my co-workers and me on the St. Croix river. He was a top-notch fishing guide, personable with everyone in the group and quick to offer assistance or fishing tips as needed. Knowledgeable and conscientious, Josh ensures that his clients have the very best opportunities on any given day to land fish.
