                                                                                         Greetings and Welcome From Danny Wade

   Thank you for visiting my website today.  We hope you will come back and visit us often. Our goal is to assist you in  becoming a more successful Muskie fisherman in your local region.  Traditionally, when we think of Muskie fishing, our thoughts go to far away waters in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Canada, and the Great Lakes systems.  But in the past 50 years or so a new era of Muskie fishing has come on the scene.  I am referring to reservoir stocked Muskies in many areas of the country and especially in the  area of the lower mid-west states. I am proud of Ohio's pioneering contribution to the methods, techniques, and skills that had to be developed to make reservoir Muskie propagation a reality.  What this has done is brought a strictly northern exotic fishery right into the back yards of many local fishermen in states like Ohio, Indiana, West Virginia, Illinois, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and many others.  However, many Muskie newcomers in these states can become frustrated over their lack of success in catching these reservoir Muskies. It is my conviction after having fished for Ohio reservoir Muskies for over 40 years, the key to success is in how you fish for them. I fish for reservoir stocked Muskies differently than I would fish for their northern naturally propagating cousins.   I have developed strategies and techniques that allow me to be routinely successful at catching lower mid-west reservoir Muskies and you can do it too.  Our Muskie fishing style has also been very successful in places like Lake St, Clair and other areas in Ontario.  Much of our instruction will work in large bodies of water as well.

Reservoir Muskie fishing is growing in popularity, but all too often so is the disappointment of trying to catch them.  In a nut shell, that is what my site, my services, my publications, and products are all about.  Helping YOU catch more Muskies closer to home in your state's Muskie stocked reservoirs.  We can help you become a more successful reservoir Muskie fisherman.  Visit us often and take advantage of our site's features and products. We want you to become more successful at catching reservoir Muskies.....closer to home! 

"See you on the lake!"  Danny Wade




Its better than it used to be but the fact of the matter is competent, reliable Muskie fishing information and instruction has been hard to come by that focuses on mid-west region reservoir Muskie fishing.  Muskie fishing used to be limited to those legendary northern waters of Minnesota, Wisconsin and Ontario. Now with the tremendous success of reservoir Muskie stocking programs, we now have excellent Muskie opportunities throughout the lower mid-west.  However to catch these thriving reservoir fish is requires some modified strategies to catch them with regularity. We give you proven reservoir Musky catching information during your entire day fishing with us. Certainly we want you to catch Muskies the day you go fishing with us but our service goes beyond that, "We Teach Tecchniques That Catch Muskies!"  You leave my boat with a good foundation for you to build on. Most of our clients are either total newcomers or relatively new to the sport and have struggled to successfully catch fish on their own.   Many have endured years of trial and error, unsuccessful strategies yet to take a trophy Muskie on their own.  We can help you fix that.    In the past 5 years we have maintained a 90 percent success rate or better with our clients on the day of their outing, catching one or more Muskies.  Contact us today to set up a day on the water with us and let us help you become a more successful reservoir Muskie fishermen!  Note:  In most seasons you will have to book  early to get a booking with us.  See you on the lake!  Danny Wade

Introducing the NEW DW 000 Shad & Danny Wade DZ

                                                       Hardwood Muskie Trolling Baits!


n years past I used a couple of different bait makers to make for me my DW 000 Shad trolling baits.  I painfully came to the realization that depending on someone else to produce a bait that carries your name isn't always the best choice but during that period it was the only choice,  But we have moved past that era and have moved into a new one.  In recent years I have developed my own bait making skills to a point where now I don't need outside

production help.  This also gives me complete flexibility to fashion my baits exactly the way I want them.  The biggest change is moving away from

using balsa wood to create a Muskie bait .  W

e made the balsa thing work but it was never my preference.  So now that my hand is on the knife I make them the way I always wanted them.  The first major change is all my baits are made from undisclosed hardwood.  The old method the guys used was like trying to mummify and egg in clear epoxy to make it strong and durable.  I always felt there was a better way but my bait makers of the former period would not deviate from their traditional way of doing things.  Using a hard wood lure body gives you a foundation for long lasting durability in comparison to balsa baits.  The multiple thick layers of clear epoxy add weight and in my baits case, hinders a more fluent bait action.  The second big addition to my lure announcement is the introduction of a brand new bait I personally developed, designed and build.  I call it the Danny Wade DZ.  Above are pictures of both of these baits and will be available in several different patterns and colors for 2015.

The above Ohio Reservoir Muskies were caught by my guide clients while fishing with me. On the far right, is one of myself in eastern Ohio at Salt Fork Lake!
