The best part was how fun he made it for the kids. His enthusiasm was infectious and I don’t know if Brady or the kids were more excited when they pulled out another fish.

I had a blast ice fishing with Brady. I would highly recommend him! He works hard to find fish and has all the technology you need.

Brady was great as we needed some guidance and advice on our first ice fishing trip to Detroit Lakes.  He is very responsive.  We highly recommend Brady and Baxstar Fishing.
