Dustin, Born and raised on Fish Lake, Maple Grove, MN Dustin is President and founder of DH Custom Rods & Tackle LLC. It began early for Dusty when his mother would buy him a new inflatable raft every summer. Every summer he would keep that raft afloat with his honed patching skills, all to keep him on the water. Hooks and inflatable raft's soon became seamless in his pursuit for "the big one". Walleye hunter by heart, Dustin is a true multi species angler with an eye for design. DH has personally designed a wide variety of products in the fishing industry, and has some revolutionary new products, about to hit the market.

4 Hour Trip – Lake Minnetonka (AM)
Captain Dusty was so great! Patient and extremely knowledgeable he put our 6 person group on fish right away. It was a chilly but beautiful morning. We had so much fun! Captain Dusty answered all our questions, gave us some history and a little sight-seeing all rolled up in a very fun and successful fishing trip. All 6 of our group got bites with 4 of us with fish on including a huge bass and a great northern pike! I thought the price was very reasonable also. We would definitely recommend Captain Dusty!

4 Hour Trip – Lake Minnetonka (AM)
During a visit to St. Paul, I wanted to take the kids out on a Minnesota lake fishing adventure. Perusing the options available on fishingbooker, Captain Dusty’s operations stood out to me because he is located only a half hour drive from the capital and emphasizes a kid friendly experience. I could not be happier choosing Captain Dusty who was attentive and very knowledgeable making our fishing trip one our family will always remember! Here’s what our kids had to say: 12 year old: this was the best fishing trip I’ve ever been on, both in terms of fun and quantity of fish caught. The captain was nice and supportive and made it possible for me to catch a monster 5 pound largemouth bass. 8 year old: I liked the trip and I caught a lot of fish, also the cutest fish!

4 Hour Trip – Lake Minnetonka (AM)
Had a great day with Captain Sean. He met us at the dock in an 18 foot Warrior and we were off to chase the fish. The fishing was typical of taking one guy out who never really fishes (Dad) and one guy who fishes salt water (myself). I missed more bites than I can count and I don’t think my dad could even tell what a bite was. The Captain was great company though, we had some incredible laughs on the boat. We ended up catching quite the variety by the end of our trip. With bass, crappie, bluegill, and of course walleye all headed home to dad’s freezer for him to enjoy. At the end of trip Sean took us over to see the Lake houses of the super rich. It was a fantastic trip, I highly recommend booking with DH Custom Rods and Tackle.
