These exceptionally satisfied clients made great memories with Sunset Glow Guide Service. Here is what they had to say…

I hired Dave as a fishing guide up on Lake Vermilion yesterday. Dave did a fantastic job and our group of two fisherman caught six different species of fish, 32 total. Better than that was the experience Dave provided with technical knowledge, humor, and ability to effectively teach two guys that have been fishing for many years. I give Dave my highest recommendation as a fishing guide and will be using him again in the future. Rating: 10/10

—Jeffrey C. from Minnesota

This was our second trip with Dave, and it was absolutely amazing (again)! Dave’s pure passion for ensuring you are having a great experience comes shining through. His knowledge and instincts of fishing and the lake allowed us (my son and brother) to fill our limit and catch some monster walleye! He treated our family like his family! Thank you Dave!

—John W. from Minnesota

It’s the first time I have ever been walleye fishing and Dave was an awesome guide. Dave is an excellent teacher and has a great personality. I had a blast, and we caught walleye!!! I highly recommend this guide service!

—Cherol B. from Minnesota

Thanks for the awesome fishing experience on Sunday. I really appreciated the time you took educating us on the techniques you used and the “why” behind it. We had a lot of good laughs and enjoyed the trip. Shore lunch was fantastic.

—Bruce T. from Minnesota

Thank you for the fun day yesterday. Guess what? We are having walleye for dinner! 🙂 Again, thanks for a great day; some awesome fishing spot suggestions.

—Kay H. from Minnesota

Dave is fantastic! Everything from his boat to knowledge of the lake and passion to make the experience exactly what you are hoping for – highly recommended!

—Katie G. from Minnesota

It was so much fun spending the morning with you. We learned a lot and got some awesome catches. Charlie and I will use your expert knowledge many times over!!

—Dawn P.

I just wanted to say thanks for a great fishing trip. The girls and I all had a great time. We were excited to catch some nice bass. You were really patient and knowledgeable too.

—Ryan H. from Minnesota

My friends and I recently took a trip to Vermilion with Dave as our guide and I highly suggest you do the same, if you get the chance. We spent our time targeting Walleye and Pike. Dave provided great communication before the trip, arrived early to greet us, prepared shore lunch, & taught and explained some of his methods/strategies for various species. I’m convinced Dave’s knowledge combined with his passion for fishing allowed us to have a successful day.

—James G. from Minnesota

We had a great day fishing with Dave. Our teenage sons caught some nice walleyes and pike, and the dads got into the action too. We finished with a tasty shore lunch featuring our fresh catch, potatoes, beans, garlic toast, and also Dave’s wife’s tasty mac salad. Highly recommend and will definitely be calling Dave again!

—Bill O. from Minnesota

My son’s first smallmouth bass was 18 1/2 inches. Let that sink in. Dave Schueck is my friend and our guide for the day. Couldn’t say enough good things.

—Sean N. from Minnesota

Besides being a great guide, Dave’s a great guy and he taught us a lot about the lake and fishing in general! I give him the highest rating possible.

—Dan B. from Illinois

I wanted to thank you again for guiding me and my two granddaughters last month on Lake Vermilion. The girls had a blast! They enjoyed that you put us on the fish and the great shore lunch you provided us. You are great with kids, I couldn’t believe that my granddaughter was able to use a bait casting reel, in the short time we had together. Thanks again!

—Richard E. from Colorado

We had friends up visiting and decided to send the girls out fishing with Dave. They had a great time and we would totally recommend going out fishing with Sunset Glow Guide Service the next time you make it to Lake Vermilion!

—Tom L. from Minnesota

Great teacher, can really read people. My 12 year old and I had a wonderful time. Would use again. Highly recommend.

—Nancy R. from Wisconsin

Thanks again Sunset Glow Guide Service for the great fishing and amazing memories!! Can’t wait for next year!

—Jason K. from Minnesota

Great time on the water! My son-in-law and I spent a full day of fishing with Dave and had an excellent time fishing and enjoying his company. Dave is very knowledgeable about Lake Vermilion and the techniques needed to put fish in the boat! We caught both walleye and crappie and had enough to have a fish fry for the family. Dave is extremely customer service oriented and went the extra mile to make to our trip enjoyable. Dave is a great guide and I highly recommend him for your next fishing trip to Lake Vermilion.

—Steve M. from Illinois

She enjoyed two guided fishing tours with Dave from Sunset Glow Guide Service on Lake Vermilion and we cannot say enough about how wonderful Dave was! He ended the second guided tour by treating our entire family to a shore lunch. Dave filleted, prepped, and cooked up everything! We had fish they caught that morning fishing, potatoes he cooked in a skillet over the fire, with some beans and pasta salad. It was absolutely delicious and we still cannot believe how cool it was to watch him fillet/cut, prep, fry and cook everything for us!! Highly recommend him for anyone in the area looking for a fishing guide.

—Bonita M. from Minnesota

If you are looking for a guide for your trip to Lake Vermilion I would highly recommend you look no further and give Dave a call! Honestly, I cannot say enough good things about our experience. Once I reached out he was quick to reply and spent a lot of time on the phone helping me to understand his methods, approach and services. Dave arrived early and greeted us with a smile and a plan. Aside from coming prepared, Dave was a great and colorful boat host. If you were interested, he could enlighten you with the “why and how” of the techniques he was using. Further, if your line was snagged or if you had a fish on he would leap into action. On rare occasions where a hook was lost to a rock, he magically made another rod appear so that you were back in the water with no time wasted. Perhaps best of all, Dave has the type of humor and consideration that keeps you engaged and wanting to retain his company longer than you paid for. He kept the attention of my 10 year old son with conversation about his life outside of fishing as well as made sure he was warm and comfortable on a day that required winter jackets, hats and gloves. Not to mention that my son was free of charge and even received a nice Mepp’s lure as a gift – a tradition of Dave’s. After we returned to the resort Dave cleaned our fish and spent time reviewing the map with us to give us tips for the rest of our trip. Overall, I can’t say enough good things about our outing and, as I said above, if you’re in the midst of evaluating options I would say that you can save yourself some time and just give Dave a call now. If your trip is anything like ours it will be both productive and memorable!

—Chris L. from Minnesota

I wanted to let you know that the entire family had a spectacular experience with you and Brock fishing on Lake Vermilion last week. Our 6-yr-old grandaughter had the most fun and caught the most fish! You were really great with her, and all she can talk about is “going fishing with Dave” and “let’s do it again!” We could not have asked for a better experience. Everybody appreciated your thoroughness with safety lessons at the start, your clear rules for the boat, and helping the girls especially by saying that you’ll stop for bathroom breaks whenever needed. A big thanks also for cleaning the fish afterwards (a big job because we had so many fish). We plan on seeing you next summer!

—Tom S.


GREAT being out with you! You are First Class stuff!!!

—Todd F. from Indiana
