Todd Schulz, Musky Moon Guide Service.

Todd Schulz, Merrill, WI

My name is Todd Schulz and I own and operate Musky Moon Guide Service out of Merrill, WI. I guide on many beautiful waters in Northern and Northcentral Wisconsin. I very much enjoy and take pride in taking people out musky fishing and teaching them the skills that will help them become more successful when they are out on the water themselves. Each year I donate two full weekend trips to the Wounded Warrior Project, and by doing this it gives our wounded service men and women a chance to relax and enjoy time out on the water. In my eyes this is my way to say thank you for the service and sacrifice they and their families have done for all of us. I enjoy all aspects of being a musky guide from watching the look on the faces of first time musky anglers as a musky follows to the boat, to when they catch their first musky. Also being a part of the moment when someone boats that fish of a lifetime. I also enjoy taking our youths out on the water, and showing them what the outdoors has to offer. When I’m not on the water guiding and fishing for muskies, I’m studying my notes from years past and going over lake maps to better myself as a guide and fisherman to make sure I’m the best I can be when I’m out on the water. I also enjoy testing lures for lure companies, and helping them come up with new designs. I am a member of Muskies Inc. Chapter 61, Bill’s Musky Club, and also a member of the Suick Lure Co., Musky Mayhem Tackle, Musky Innovations, Outdoor Grips, and The Sportman’s Repair Shop Pro Staffs. I am also a co-writer for Esoxonly.com. I wouldn’t be able to do all of this if it wasn’t for all of the love and support from my wife Hilary and my son Tanner. They are my foundation and I am very thankful to have them by my side through my journeys. Please take the time to check out my website and like us on Facebook and Instagram.       Todd Schulz
