Brian is a fairly new to the musky guiding community, but in his short time guiding, he has proven himself one of the best sticks in the Northeast. Brian fishes mainly Chautauqua Lake in Southwest New York and many of the other bodies of water in the Northwest PA Region. While there are no promises with musky fishing, Brian has maintained an impressive record of consistently putting his clients on fish. Brian is a young and energetic guide whose understanding of these fish’s behavior is far beyond his years. Brian also fishes on several Lake Erie charter boats targeting walleye, steelhead, and perch. He incorporates these fishing techniques and applies them to musky fishing for a unique approach to targeting these weary fish. Every angler, no matter what experience, can learn something new from fishing with Brian.
