Multi-species guide Dan Swanson is a former In-Fisherman Professional Walleye Tour, RCL and FLW national touring pro.  He now focuses on being a full-time guide for Fishful Thinker.  Dan has fished Horsetooth Reservoir, Carter and Boyd Lakes for over 35 years for walleyes and bass.

Dan’s boat is a 20 foot Ranger 620FS multi-species boat with a 250 Evinrude main motor.  A boat this size can easily accommodate 3 guests.  With the Evinrude 15HO kicker it is set up for trolling if that is what you wish to do.

The electronics are top-of-the-line Lowrance HDS units.   Dan is an expert in using and teaching others how to get the most out of their electronics.  He can do on-the-water sonar training as part of your fishing trip or a separate class or seminar.

All rods Dan provides for guest use are from the St. Croix Eyecon series.  Reels are Abu Garcia Orra spooled with Berkley braid or mono, depending on the application.
