About Us

We are a fully insured and licensed fishing guide service specializing in walleye fishing on the Wisconsin River with over 40 years of combined experience chasing walleyes. We also target crappies, perch, and bass on the river from Lake Dubay south through the Petenwell Flowage and Lake Wisconsin.

There are many smaller lakes in central Wisconsin with awesome opportunities for walleyes and panfish that we target as well. All equipment is provided. Just bring a lunch, appropriate clothing for the weather, a Wisconsin fishing license and a positive attitude and an open mind!

We’ll do everything possible to get you some fish for a fish fry with your family or to try to get that trophy of a lifetime!

Wisconsin Expert Fishing Guides

Thomas Droste

My name is Thomas Droste. I am 34 years old. I have over 18 years of experience fishing walleyes. I am an avid tournament angler and also the tournament manager for the Bass Pro Shop – Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit. I was also the tournament director for the Team Walleye Guys Walleye Series for four years. I also fished this tournament series and have taken a 1st place and 3rd place Team of the Year finishes. I also have fished the AIM Weekend Walleye Series for three years, competing against some of the best anglers in the Midwest. I am a family man first and foremost. When I’m not fishing, I’m spending time at home with my beautiful fiancé and three year old daughter. I am also a United States Army combat veteran with over 17 years of service. I still serve in the Wisconsin Army National Guard as a Chief Instructor at the Wisconsin Military Academy.

I would like the opportunity to show you the techniques and lessons I have learned from my years of experience on the water chasing walleyes, crappies, bass, and other fish. I want to help you have a safe and enjoyable time on the water and maybe catch that trophy fish!

Bill Borcherdt

Hi my name is Bill Borcherdt. I have over 30 years of fishing experience from Lake Winnebago, where I grew up, to the Stevens Point area where I now live. Although I specialize in fishing the Wisconsin River and the bodies of water that it flow into it, I have tournament fished across the entire Midwest. My fishing career has taken me to South Dakota, Minnesota, Michigan, and Canada as well. I take my fishing very seriously but, don’t get me wrong, there is never a shortage of fun and jokes when you are in my boat!

   With that being said, whether you are a tournament angler or a novice that just wants to get out, or learn more about the world’s greatest sport it would be my privilege to get you out on the water. You can rest assured that you will have a exciting and safe time spending the day on the water with Team Walleye Guys Guide Service.


I am a seasoned tournament angler and more than once, and on more than one body of water, Bill has showed me techniques that have caught fish even in the toughest conditions. I would recommend him to anyone. ~ Brad Otto

I’m fairly new to the walleye fishing game. I asked Thomas to take me out to teach me some things I can use when my family and I take trips to northern Wisconsin. I learned techniques that not only can I duplicate myself but things I can teach my family on our annual family trips. ~ Matt Schoff

I’ve been fishing with Thomas for almost 10 years. Every time out I learn something new either about the water we’re fishing or just about walleye fishing in general. You’ll be hard pressed to find someone who works as hard as him to get you on the fish. ~ Nick Zanon
