To Reach Shawn



About Shawn

Past to Present

I have been fishing for practically my whole life.  If grew up west of the Missouri River, catching panfish and largemouth bass.  I used to ride my bike 6 miles up and down gravel roads to the Little Moreau State part to fish all day long and 6 miles home with a bucket of fish.  Those memorable days involved camping and fishing as often as we could.  My father started me young and for that I am thankful.

Guiding Experience

I started guiding in 2006, helping fellow guides on the Missouri River.  A few years ago I started Glacial Lakes Fishing Adventures.  It is very satisfying helping someone get their biggest fish, first fish, or most in a day.  The looks on clients' faces that share the same love for the sport as I do is priceless.


I first fished tournaments on Lake Oahe but have since fished in many all over the Dakotas; from Devil's Lake in ND to all parts of SD.  Tournament circuits are challenging and I have fished in several casino circuits, the Masters Walleye Circuit and the Cabelas National Walleye Tournament.  Six years I was influential in starting the NESD walleye league that is still going strong.  All of thses tournaments have allowed me to win a few :), and also become adept at fishing many varieties of water.  Fishing successfly under pressure lends itself to putting fish in the boat while guiding.
