Alumacraft Pro Staffer Josh Teigen from Iron River, WI

Josh Teigen is a full time fishing guide in NW Wisconsin. He guides on Chequamegon Bay, The St. Louis River, and the many inland lakes in Bayfield and Douglas County. With his Dad's guidance, he caught his first Musky when he was 7, a 42 incher, and on that day both the fish and Josh were hooked. At 17 he fulfilled his lifelong dream to become a fulltime professional fishing guide when after purchasing his first boat. About that same time, well known northern Wisconsin fishing guide, the late Jim Hudson, asked him to come and help with his guide business. Josh apprenticed under Jim for 5 years while also running his own guide service. Josh's goal is to share his passion and provide his clients with an experience that is more than just catching fish. While many of his clients have caught their largest walleye, bass or musky with Josh, teaching them how to fish and how to enjoy the outdoors while being safe and respectful is Josh's top goal.
