Captain Matt Steffen

I am now a transplant to Port Mansfield TX, but I’m originally from Mondovi, Wi which is near the Mississippi River where I originally started guiding walleye, pike, bass, and panfish. I fished the prestigious Cabelas National Walleye Tour, Masters Walleye Circuit, Aim pro series, Head 2 Head  walleye series and traveling all over the country to new bodies of water. I have guided freshwater full time on beautiful Rainy Lake, Rainy River, Mississippi River, and Greenbay.

I enjoy spending my days in the boat teaching kids and adults new techniques to take home with them and try on there favorite fisheries. I have guided and hunted waterfowl in 9 states and Saskatchewan. The Texas coast has been my absolute favorite because of the beautiful full plumage of the different species and of course the beautiful weather. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you!
