Paul took us out for fishing on the river and he did not disappoint we had an awesome time! He is a great guide, we caught fish at every spot we went! We got a lot of bites and plenty of action. We all had a great time and at the end of the day we had a nice stringer of fish. Paul not only provided all the equipment and bait, but also taught us so much that we felt we got double our money’s worth. I certainly would recommend Paul’s service to anyone who wants to have fun, catch fish, and learn how to be a better fisherman.

I have been hearing about this “Musky Guy” for the past couple of years and finally decided to give up Wisconsin and start hunting the back waters of Iowa for that magic number ”50”. I met Paul in the spring of 2014 and immediately found out that Paul’s passion is “fishing”. As we were around the water it became clear that Paul’s approach was “we are not leaving until we catch fish”. Although we did not catch a musky during our outings, we bagged several other species and had a great time. I will definitely be back for another adventure!

Even though the big fish weren’t biting, you managed to get us on some fish and make the day a success. The service was great and very informative. Our group had a great time. Thanks!



I first met Paul Malm at the March 2014 Sport Show at the UNI Dome in Cedar Falls, I liked him right away and I bought some of his fishing products for walleye and pike.  We got a date set for June 17th to go fishing with him.  We arrived in Moville the afternoon that the twin tornadoes hit Pilger, NE.  Then Sioux City in Northwest Iowa,  got 8”rain over night and all of the fishing spots that we went to were all flooded out and water rising, we never did get to fish, but he showed my wife and I a lot of useful things that we can apply when go fishing for pike.  Thanks Paul for all the information!  We would highly recommend his guide service.

Paul, my wife and i recently went fishing with Benny and Karen for a week. We had a great time and caught our share of fish. My wife caught 6 walleye,4 in one day, several northern and a perch. She wad using Bennys rod that had one of your leaders on. Benny had given me one of your walleye leaders for my rod and I caught 2 or 3 walleye, 3 or 4 smallmouth including a 3 1/8# and many northern although none that were really big according to Benny. He thought our success using your leaders might be something you wanted to know about.

alankouzmaA buddy of mine and I fished with Paul June 18 ,2012. We had an absolute blast. Caught our limit of Northerns fishing only half a day. Paul knows exactly what to do and when to do it. I am planning on going back in 2013. In fact we caught bigger fish with Paul in 4 hours than we did fishing a whole week in Minnesota and it’s a lot cheaper!!!!

I sell and use Malm Spring Bobbers. They are simply brilliant! Sensitive and easy to use, they detect the lightest bite, hold up to heavy use and the bead reflects light from the glow of your propane heater.  I recommend them at my tackle shop.

I have known Paul for decade’s and all-way’s seem to learn something out fishing.
If you are a seasoned angler or a rookie you will learn something.
Some days you don’t catch anything but that the way it goes, you still learn a thing or two.
will test on the ice this year ( if it gets cold enough )

I have known Paul for over ten years now and he is a great guy! So far I have used his spring bobbers and fell in love with them. Far better than anything else on the market because they have stellar action and the end does not freeze up. I also use his leaders which I also like. When I go to Minnesota I can change lures instantly without messing around with a clip to close. I really like his design. I was not sure if I would like his things but turns out I will always be using Paul’s tackle. Paul really knows fishing. So if you want to learn a thing or two from someone Paul is the guy!
