Casey's Guide Service Under New Ownership!
Casey Sundahl has decided to retire from guiding for personal reasons. Casey took most of the year off in 2017 and started looking for someone to buy his very successful guide business. Through a mutual friend I met Casey and we both thought I would be a good fit to purchase Casey's Guide Service! I will be updating the name of the business in a year or two, but felt it best to keep the brand during the transition. The biggest question I will hear this year is where is Casey and who are you?
My name is Kyle Colbert and my wife Joy and I recently purchased Lake Vermilion Houseboats in May of 2017. We moved up from Iowa to pursue our dream of owning our own business in the NorthWoods. We have three children Chance, Croy (named after St Croix Rods), and Canon Ranger (named after Ranger Boats). My passion is fishing, especially walleye fishing. I have tournament fished since 2008, starting with small club tournaments and working my way up to the Cabela's Masters Walleye Circuit, which is the longest running team professional walleye circuit in the country! I fished the Cabela's Masters Walleye Circuit from 2011-2016 honing my walleye fishing skills from the Dakota Reservoirs, Minnesota Natural Lakes, Iowa & Illinois River Systems, and the Great Lakes of Wisconsin, Michigan, & Ohio! I'm fairly new to Lake Vermilion, but I have the knowledge and equipment to catch fish on any technique and in any condition. Although Casey has retired his body and boat from guiding his fishing knowledge will still be used. Casey will keep me updated with his 12 years of guiding experience on fish locations and techniques as the year progresses, which I can pair with what I'm seeing on the water to have a solid fish catching plan for each trip!
I'm very proud to say we will be fishing out of the best boat on the market! I have a Ranger 621FS, powered by a 300HP Mercury Verado & 9.9 Mercury ProKicker. I have all the accessories needed to caught fish and then some, just ask my wife! All fishing tackle and bait is provided during your trip. I will try my very best to put my clients on fish, as well as, ensure they have a great day on the best lake in Minnesota. Yes, I said it! Taking into consideration Lake Vermilion's size, scenery, fishing, recreation, and solitude it would be hard to find a better lake that is entirely within the state of Minnesota.
