Your Guide

Ike Miller

Ike Miller has been guiding for the last 10 years, and for the last 6 seasons on the St. Croix. Guiding on the St. Croix is very simaliar to the waters of his home state of Virginia where is spent a lot of time in a jet boat chasing smallmouth and muskies. He also spent 5 years guiding in the remote wilderness setting of the Gunnison Gorge in Colorado rowing rafts and drift boats for big gnarly brown trout.

Now, he combines the capabilities of a drift boat and jet outboard motorboat to provide a unique experience. Imagine motoring up river in mere inches of water at 20+ mph; then drifting down river, rowing quietly pursuing the areas toughest game fish.
