Keith knew all the spots and gave me advice and tips for catching the biggest bass of my life. He also helped my 8 year old son learn the ropes and reel in some monsters. Highly recommend and we’ll definitely book again next year.

This was our second time fishing with Keith at Stay Bent. Our first trip was in the summer and the kids (thirteen and ten) enjoyed it so much, they wanted to try ice fishing.
When we got there at 8am, he had already set up the heated tent, drilled the holes and got the snowmobile ready. He took us to multiple different spots to throw in lines. We caught several fish and had a great time. Highly recommend.

Keith is a fabulous guide. He has all the right equipment and knows all the best fishing spots given his many years fishing the local waters. He's a great guy too. I saw the one negative review here; have to imagine there was some mistake. Keith is a great guy and does not drink or anything.

I travel around the country, and fish with a lot of Guides along the way. Keith knows his stuff. But every Guide knows what they're doing. The difference is Keith is relentless on the lake until he serves you an amazing day. This guy never stops making sure you are on fish. Great communicator with planning the day, and just really good company when you're stuck on a boat with a stranger for 4 hours! If you are nervous about blowing your money, Keith is as close to a sure thing as it comes.

Keith is an excellent guide. Responsive during the planning process, extremely knowledgeable, and very fun to spend time with. Our group of friends had very little ice fishing experience but Keith got us up to speed very quickly. He took very good care of us every step of the way, from teaching us how to fish to giving us chances to warm up to giving us tips on how to cook the fish we took home. I can confidently recommend him to anyone looking to have a fun time fishing. I will definitely be reaching out to him the next time I visit Vermont. Thank you Keith!

Whether your looking to expand your knowledge on fishing, or just looking for a good time and some laughs, Keith is the man to call if your ever around central VT. A friend and I recently booked a trip and had a great time all around .Keith provided us with some fishing gear, warm ice shanty, and some real county food out on the ice. He was able to put us on all sorts of fish, some perch we caught jigging and the large mouth bass and northern pike were caught on the tip ups with live bait ... hands down damn good time.

Keith took a group of 6 of us out ice-fishing for 6+ hours and we had a blast. He has us on fish all day, was incredibly knowledgable, and kept us laughing between bites. I'll definitely be going out with him again this Spring.
