I have fished with Royal Karels for over thirty years. I have been impressed with my friend's honesty and integrity. We have caught countless bass, northern and walleye pike. Many bass were over 5 pounds. We have caught walleyes 32" long (over 10 lbs.) These fish were caught and released. On these long winter nights I count the days when I will again be fishing with Royal and his sons

I have been fishing with Royal for over 35 years. He is one of the greatest guides in the country but he also is the best teacher of fishing. I go fishing to Minnesota four times a year and look forward to each trip.Royal practices the "Catch and Release" program so the next generation will have just as great fishing as I have known.Every trip is a terrific adventure and I hope I have many, many more.Thank you Royal for being my guide and good friend.

Fabulous fishing frenzies! Royal has guided many fishing trips for years for me and my husband, my daughter and son-in -law and several of my fishing buddies! We have always had a lot of action and caught many sizable fish! Royal is as experienced as you can get, has a great sense of humor and is a friend to all of us!His equipment is exceptional and boy, does he do a great job cleaning fish! My only fear is that everyone will take up my fishing slots once they use Royal for guiding, but if you love fishing, good company and catching a lot of fish, Royal is the man!!!!

A fishing trip with Royal is always an enjoyable, relaxing and successful experience on the water - no matter the weather or fishing conditions.
