Dan "Grop" Gropengiser is out of Rhinelander Wisconsin. Living in Rhinelander his entire life has given Dan the chance to explore the lakes this great area has to offer. Dan's been fishing ever since his Dad could get him to sit still on a five gallon pail ice fishing. All of the great memories of fishing with family and friends sticks with him to this day.

Dan began guiding in 2012 and believes fishing is all about learning and making memories that will last forever. Dan will take the time to teach you proper casting and retrieving of baits, boat control and handling wind conditions, lake map reading and usage of today's latest electronics.

Seasonal fish movements is a big part of what you'll learn.

Brian's first musky experience was while walleye fishing the Eagle River chain in the early 90s.  Brian caught a 27" musky and from that first encounter he knew that was the fish that he was going to pursue.

10:00 - 11:00 Steve Jonesi

Steve Jonesi

Steve was introduced to the mighty muskie in the 1970’s while vacationing with family on Upper Post Lake in Northern Wisconsin. That introduction has fueled an obsession with a fish that has taken Steve all over the United States and Canada for the past 45 years. Steve released his first Wisconsin legal, 30” at the time, on September 25th, 1977. Thousands of muskies have visited Steve’s boat over the years.

Through the years, Steve has introduced many to the sport of Muskie Fishing. The dream of owning/operating a professional guide service came to fruition after moving to Minnesota in the Fall of 2004, to begin working for the world famous Thorne Bros. Custom Rod and Tackle Shop. Lake Mille Lacs and her 132,000 acres became home base.

On October 6, 2006, Steve’s client Jody Dahms caught a muskie that would have broken the Minnesota state record at the time if he had kept it. The incredible muskie was caught on Lake Millie Lacs and was 54” long and had a 30” girth. That fish gave Steve’s professional career a real boost. The next few years were amazing! He spent time with clients catching big fish and making fabulous memories.

Steve’s passion for teaching and sharing information can take your fishing to the next level. Never short on stories and laughs, a good time in the boat is guaranteed.

12:00 - 1:00

Southern Wisconsin Guide Panel


I have been guiding for 41 years, and own Rocky Point Tackle Co. I use my time in the boat as an opportunity to teach. Catching a fish is great, but the knowledge and experience is as long lasting and beneficial as a picture. I am also Co-Founder of the Wisconsin Veterans Fishing Camp,  which is the highlight of my year. To be able to thank our Heroes and share our fishing world with them, and to serve them for a few days.




The thrill of the chase- the tug is the only drug!

Been musky fishing since 1998

Guiding for 10 years. Multiple top 10 tournament finishes 3 first place finishes. I love guiding for the sole purpose of sharing knowledge and helping others create memories that last a lifetime!



Ader’s ADVENTURES started in 1985; After developing a love for getting people outdoors, hunting and fishing, passing on the knowledge.  Over the years, the collaboration with several entities enabled me to create a nice network.  I could not do what I do without friends and family.  The joy I get from seeing the first fish or biggest fish is priceless!   

I am not a pro-staffer for any company, what I use and who I partner with is based on quality, success and ethics.  I do not consider myself a “Guide” rather more of an educator/personal consultant.   This enables me to help you with what you are looking to accomplish.  It cost nothing to ask.  Please feel free to reach out, and just maybe we can build an adventure for you.




I live within a few miles of the musky lakes of Waukesha County and love sharing knowledge that has helped me be successful in these heavily pressured waters. Thanks to local musky clubs and DNR stocking efforts, all of our lakes have great populations of muskies with a great mix of age classes, offering not only numbers but also big fish. I focus primarily on casting and fly fishing, and thanks to my son showing great interest in musky fishing, I've also learned many methods to help smaller framed anglers successfully pursue the fish we love to chase. I look forward to sharing what has helped me win and place in many local tournaments with all of you.
