I have been fishing for over 50 years. My wife and I were referred to Tom by a friend who showed us pictures and we were impressed.I have used many guides before and all I can say is " If you want to go fishing that's fine, but IF YOU WANT TO GO CATCHING GET TOM"

Best fishing days of our lives! Caught over 45 big smallies in 5 hours or so. Amazing!

Tom is polite, helpful and a real pro! He knows Lake St. Clair. If you aren't that good at fishing this will get you hooked, he will show you! I just hope he has time for our future trips.

" A guided day on St. Clair with TKO is one of the best memories my father and I have on the water. Great fishing, lots of laughter,and an overall tremendous experience! In no time it seemed as if we had know each other for years and we (Dad and I) are constantly asking each other when we will be able to align schedules and meet up with Tom again.Tom is well versed on the lake and is well outfitted to offer anyone from a first time angler to a tournament angler a great experience"

Thanks again Tom!

 Best guide you can get !                  Tom is a great guide and fisherman, but he is also a true gentleman in every way. Truly enjoyed our days on the water with him and look forward to several more.

"First smallmouth caught was worth a picture, picture of the largest smallmouth caught is now a family heirloom. One day of rain,wind and beautiful calm on Lake St. Clair with Tom Kiefer's boat, equipment and guidance was fun, challenging and a rewarding experience. Looking forward to do over."

"Hi smallmouth bass fisherman, If you want to just go for a boat ride use another guide,if you want to catch smallmouth go fishing with Tom Kiefer. First time we caught 40 the next 50 all bruisers. Fish on!"


"Tom is a first class guide who's knowledge of Lake St. Clair is second to none. Have taken several trips  with family and friends who have caught their personal best smallmouth.  Each trip was very successful. Beyond fishing Tom is just a great person to spend the day on the water with.Have several more trips planned and cannot wait.If you want a successful fishing trip I  would recommend Tom. All his equipment, boat and service are first class"
