ABOUT AARON SANDS

Growing up in the town of Shabbona offered me the opportunity to literally fish whenever I wanted to. And fish I did! As a teenager I stole my father’s boat and fished for everything that swims. During the mid 90’s, I won multiple Men’s and Master’s contests in the Quad County Hawg Hunter’s Muskies Inc Release Divisions. Almost all of those muskies were captured on Shabbona Lake. My fishing articles have been published in Midwest Outdoors and the Outdoor Notebook. I am regular guest on the Outdoor Notebook radio and an accomplished Seminar speaker. In 1994, I organized the 1st “Muskie Rescue” and since then we have literally returned hundreds of muskies and walleye to the Lake. Simply put, no other guide has more time on Shabbona Lake than I do.

TESTIMONIAL

“Nicolle and I went to Shabbona Lake for the second time on May 18th, 2014 for a day of muskie fishing. After our first time out with Aaron, catching bass, walleye, and muskie, we were excited to come back to Shabbona. Sure enough, Aaron knew exactly where to find the muskie and we landed three. This brought our total up to 5 muskie in just two trips (4 over 40 inches). Aaron is a great guide; friendly, and extremely knowledgeable. He has a passion for what he does and knows the lake in a way that only years of experience can deliver. I would recommend using Aaron no matter what kind of fish you are after.”
