Meet Your Captain

Cody Klaus | Playin' Hooky Trip Guide

Captain Cody Klaus

Cody has had a passion for all kinds of fishing since he could hold a rod and reel (and eventually a bow). With over 15 years of combined experience musky fishing and bowfishing, you will be in good hands when you get out in the boat with him.


"I am so fortunate that I have the opportunity to meet so many different people AND introduce them to the sports I love!" -Capt. Cody


Our Equipment

We provide all of the equipment & knowledge needed for both your musky fishing and bowfishing trips. We have two different boats that we use to run the different guided trips we offer.

For bowfishing, we use predominantly compound bows with a draw weight of approximately 20-40lbs of draw weight. Each bow has its own bottle or spin-cast reel attached with an arrow on the end. These setups can be easily and safely used by just about anyone that is able to pull back that much weight.


For musky fishing, we use predominantly bait casting reels on 8ft-10ft rods. We have a variety of different-sized baits which allows us to match the right bait for the right person for ease of casting.Both boats are very stable and have dry storage for anything you don’t want exposed to the elements. 

Our Fleet

2084 Long Beach Custom Jon Boat

This boat is powered by a 175HP Suzuki outboard to zip from spot to spot. Once we get to our spot, we use a 25HP Prodrive Mud Motor to chase fish wherever they go.


Mounted underneath the large, metal shooting platform are both 400w HPS flood lights and 200W 5-Star LEDs, some of the best, and brightest, on the market. All the lights are powered by a quiet inverter generator.

Ranger 690 VS Fisherman

This boat is powered by a 150HP Mercury outboard to zip from spot to spot. Once we get to our spot, we use the 36v Minnkota trolling motor or the 9.9HP Mercury kicker to move us along while we fish. This is a fiberglass boat so it is nice and heavy. Combine that with a deep v hull, and we are able to conquer big water even in the worst of conditions.

There is ample space for bomb casts and large figure-eights on both the front and rear casting decks.
