You are going out there and WILL learn something new


Man where do I start for this. Collin did it all. He explained the lakes that were were going to go to and he put us on fish. My friend Jared and I got lucky, well not really, and had the hottest days of summer when Collin took us out. He still was able to help us put Pike on the boat, my first ever. He then took us to a lake were he guaranteed numbers. He taught us a new fishing trick to catch the fish as well. Boy did we catch. It was legit every other cast we pulled in a bass, decent size might I add. We ended that day with 50+ fish between my friend and I. I would fully recommend Collin as a guide. Not only are you going out there for him to help bend the rods but you are going out there and WILL learn something new. He will not disappoint and you will land fish, rather it is bass, walleye, pike, musky, or blue gills you will have fish.

I am truly a better fisherman overall for having shared a boat with him


I've had the pleasure to fish with Collin many times throughout the years, both inland lakes as well as Lake Michigan. Regardless of the body of water, time of year, or species targeted; Collin has proven time and time again, to be exceptionally knowledgeable on where to consistently find fish. Beyond his professionalism and hospitality, I would also like to thank Collin for the vast amount of fishing knowledge that he has taught me throughout our trips together. His passion and dedication to catching big fish is definitely contagious. I can honestly say that I've enjoyed every single trip I've taken with Collin and that I am truly a better fisherman overall for having shared a boat with him. That being said, I am already looking forward to my next trip out with "Hardcore Hookin Guide Service" and would highly recommend his services!

Simply put the best guide service I’ve ever used!


Simply put the best guide service I’ve ever used! Collin is extremely knowledgeable, and always get my wife and I on huge trophy fish, or loads of good fun fish whichever we request. So far we have done two King Salmon trips, and two trips for trophy Brown Trout. We are also planning Musky and walleye trips this summer with our son! Overall we couldn’t be happier with the guide service and professionalism.

I've never caught more or bigger fish more consistently then I have with Collin S.


A lot of people love to fish. I on the other hand love to CATCH fish! I’ve done a lot of fishing over the years and have fished with many different people. With that said, I’ve never caught more or bigger fish more consistently then I have with Collin Schlicht. It doesn’t really matter WHAT you’re fishing for or WHERE you’re fishing, Collin’s knowledge of patterns, behavior, presentation and his ability to just “find what works” has always led to consistent success. When you couple this knowledge and skillset with his hardcore work ethic he’s just a fish catching machine. I guess that’s the only way to explain it. MOST of my best memories of fishing have been while with Collin or when Collin has taken my kids out.If you’re thinking about hiring a guide you cannot go wrong with Collin Schlicht. Knowledgeable, hardworking and experienced, you’ll get results.
