Very knowledgeable and patient. He is what every guide should be!! Other boats were coming off the water only catching a couple but we stayed busy catching the whole time. Best father/son trip ever!!

Had an awesome time! Derek is very knowledgeable about everything outdoors. I’m not a big fishing guy but we had a great time out with our group! Caught a boatload of fish! Pun intended! Definitely recommend.

I had never been top-water fishing for bluegill before, and to be honest was a little skeptical - but open to give it a try. Growing up, I did love top-water fishing for anything else. Had a total blast the first time out with Unwrapped Outdoors, and have been back many times with family as well as for team-building times with work friends. Looking forward to our next trip!!

Derek and his crew treated us to a full day of fishing, despite the slightly chilly mid-June weather. The fishing action was red-hot! They were well-versed in the prime casting spots, and if we aimed to reach our limits, it would've been a breeze. However, we had the pleasure of being selective, keeping only the largest catches, which we savored as soon as we returned to land! Whether you're an experienced angler or a complete novice when it comes to boating, Derek and the entire team will ensure you have a successful outing and an absolute blast.

Derek and his crew provided us with an absolutely fantastic experience! Throughout the morning, we reeled in a variety of fish, including bluegill, sunfish, perch, and bass. This marked my fifth outing with Unwrapped Outdoors, and each time has been a delightful blend of entertainment and learning. What makes it even better is that you can leave with several pounds of fresh panfish fillets to enjoy. I wholeheartedly endorse Derek – he's truly exceptional!
