This month Musky Shop would like to feature one of our local guides: Matt Raley.  Matt runs a successful guide business in the Northwoods of Wisconsin fishing mostly in Oneida and Vilas county. The Musky Shop is proud to have Matt on our guide staff as he would definitely be considered a pro fisherman and one of the best fishermen in the country.  Matt is a multi-species guide and is always on top of all fish locations and their movements.  Matt can and does guide for many species however his passion is Musky Fishing. 

As a professional fisherman Matt and his tournament partner Nate Osfar are one of the best if not the best Musky Tournament teams to ever compete in Musky Tournaments.  The PMTT (Professional Musky Tournament Trail) is a Pro Musky Tournament that has been holding their tournament trail for many years. 

If you only look at 1st and 2nd place finishes below their success is simply staggering to say the least. They truly are one of the best Musky Tournament teams of all time. They work very hard at their passion of Musky Fishing thus Matt has built a super successful career in guiding and tournament fishing.
