Whether your looking to expand your knowledge on fishing, or just looking for a good time and some laughs, Keith is the man to call if your ever around central VT. A friend and I recently booked a trip and had a great time all around .Keith provided us with some fishing gear, warm ice shanty, and some real county food out on the ice. He was able to put us on all sorts of fish, some perch we caught jigging and the large mouth bass and northern pike were caught on the tip ups with live bait ... hands down damn good time.
