Cliff Haugland has been catching big walleyes and bass on the Mississippi River and across the upper midwest for a long time. Cliff ran a guide service called “Fisher of Men” for 11 years in the 1980s, which was highlighted on many TV shows, including the In-Fishermen with Al Lindner, Tony Dean, Bob Jensen’s Fishing Iowa and Chicago’s Midwest Outdoors.
Cliff and his sons also fished the MWC Tournaments and qualified for the national championship in 2006-2007. Cliff is now semi-retired after running a successful construction business for 23 years and has decided to share his extensive fishing knowledge with others to help them enjoy the great outdoors.
Captain Cliff runs the boat. You catch the fish!
P.S. – Ask about Cliff’s “Monster Walleye Trips” to the Rainy River in Late March/Early April! 6-12 pound walleyes all day!
