Hook into more than 40 years of angling experience!
Whether were reeling in smallmouth bass on Minnesota’s famed Mille Lacs Lake or catching crappie in Southern Illinois, our mission is simple: Give 100% to our customers and provide a fishing experience to be remembered for a lifetime. Meet Your Guide Ron DaRosa and RD Outdoors bring a lifetime of fishing experience to your day on the water. Ron’s guiding career began in 1985 when he was recruited to be a bass specialist at Ron and Al Lindner’s renowned Camp Fish in Minnesota’s Leech Lake resort region. That experience ignited his passion for sharing his expertise with others. Ron has led fishing tours since the mid-80s and is now one of a select few providing a 100% smallmouth experience on Mille Lacs. Throughout the years, he has participated in hundreds of fishing tournaments, many of which yielded money-winning finishes. He was also a regular guest on “The Fishing and Outdoor Radio Show,” Chicago’s longest-running and most-listened-to sportsmen’s show.
