"Gage does a great job of providing an exciting session of fishing. He's knowledgeable; relaxed; and always scouting fish while you're fishing. We had a wonderful time with wonderful results. Thanks Gage!" -Margaret Ellibee 

"We highly recommend Gage. He's very knowledgable and accommodating. He took me and my 6 year old son out fishing during 4th of July week 2016. We were fishing novices. Gage gave us tips we were able to use this past year on our own, but we can't wait to get up north again for another Cutler's Catch experience." - David Vazquez

"Gage was a true professional as a charter captain ! Highly recommend you give him a try!" - Kaylene Marie

"It was clear from the dock that he is a very safe and experienced guide. We trolled for lake trout, and caught two substantial fish in a short period of time. Then, in order to step up the action, Gage took us to a spot where we caught more than 50 fish of three additional species. There is no doubt in my mind we could have caught 200 fish in this spot! I have fished all over the world with dozens of guides, and I would rank this trip and this guide at the top of my list!" - Clint Shackelford

Fish from the Dock - Fishtown, Leland

Perfect for kids or anyone new to fishing, the water below the Fishtown dam has a population of smallmouth bass that will provide entertainment all morning. Due to its high success rate, it is a great location to learn to fish that doesn't require advanced skills or techniques.
