Rob was kind enough to squeeze my wife and I in for a last minute Sunday outing recently. We had a blast! Rob is personable and knowledgeable. Most importantly, we caught fish! He also cleaned our catch for us and we had quite the little fish fry that night back at the hideout. We would book with him again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Rob!

Rob is an excellent guide in Manitowish Waters, WI. He is very personable, reliable and most importantly he know how to find the fish! My wife joined me and Rob was happy to help her while I focused on my casting (she caught more fish tham me). We caught 6 Northern and 3 keeper Walleye in 4 hours! We run a 5 star adventure company called Great Outdoors Adventures ( Colorado) and we know how good you have to be to keep this gold standard. Rob is also an excellent Muskey guide, but you'll have to put in several days to land one. He has a top notch boat, truck and knows the lakes he grew up fishing! He is a special education teacher with a master's degree and is great with children. Rob has adonate many fishing trips to Camp Jorn YMCA to help raise funds for kids to enjoy day or resident camp (this is very importantto me). Join Rob for a great fishing adventure, enjoy nature and his hospitality. He's happy to fillet your fish and gets all the bones out, even on Northern. We're looking ...

If you want an awesome experience, you need to book with Rob! His trips are incredible! I’ve done walleye with him for three years now. He’s always on the fish and is patient with every skill level angler. Can’t say enough how much I enjoy our trips!

About Me

Hello, my name is Rob Friedley. I have been a lifelong fisherman in the Manitowish Waters area in constant pursuit of muskie, walleye, bass, and panfish.  My boat is open and welcomes fishermen from kids to die-hards.  Please feel free to call, email, or visit my website/social media for questions or booking inquiries.  I operate full time on the water from June-August and weekends or evenings during May, September, October, and November.  My time growing up in the area and my job as a local educator has helped appreciate the Northwoods and push my desire to teach others to the same conclusion.  I am an active member in the community as both an educator and doner.  Over the last 8 years I have donated 26 gift certificates to local groups for fundraising which include: Camp Jorn Child Center, MW Alliance, local benefits to individuals for bills related to hardship and medical expenses, MW Maniwish fundraiser, Walleyes for Tomorrow, and many more.  Weekly fishing reports and pictures can be found on my website or google maps. I offer a 10% rate discount for all emergency medical, law enforcement, and active or retired armed service members.  I am both fully licensed and insured.

I am currently Pro sponsored by Simms, Seaguar Fishing, and Leupold Optics.  I operate a 2019 Lund 1875 Pro Guide purchased from Plowman’s Marine and fish exclusively St. Croix Rods.
