Meet our crew:
Co-Owner/Captain Roy Kalmerton. Roy is a full-time fishing guide. As co-owner of Wolf Pack Adventures LLC, he knows the importance of getting on the bite and catching fish, no matter the circumstances. With decades of fishing and guiding experience, Roy has become a “jack” of all presentations, and master of many. Before becoming a professional guide, Roy worked for 27 years patrolling Wisconsin waters as a game warden. This work kept him very busy throughout the open water seasons, so most of his vacations were spent on frozen water. Starting nearly 30 years ago, his first students of fishing were his own two sons who quickly learned many of his fine tricks and became his partners as teachers. Still today, the “leader of the Pack” is willing to share his old tricks as well as the newest bait presentations and secrets of the pros.
Co-Owner/Captain Jerrad Kalmerton. Jerrad grew up on the water fishing with his dad and brother on the waters of the Midwest and Canada—and fishing quickly became his passion. He spent every waking moment chasing game and scouring rivers before and after school. Jerrad experienced the power of fighting salmon as a child, and developed a passion that has never faded. Also on the top of his list is a solid walleye bit on a jig pole. Today, Jerrad is a licensed captain and splits his time between targeting salmon and walleye. He has a deep love and respect for big water, and appreciates any opportunity to be outdoors taking in the colorful sunrise, the heat of the day, and the reflection of the sunset. When not chasing fins, Jerrad enjoys watching Wisconsin's own Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers—and some friendly competition with his wife, two daughters and son, as they debate plays and predict final scores. Jerrad also enjoys camping, training hunting dogs, and waterfowl hunting.
Co-Owner/Captain Patrick Kalmerton. As co-owner and operator of Wolf Pack Adventures LLC, Pat guides clients from around the globe on Lake Michigan ,its tributaries and inland waters. Pat grew up in Sheboygan County, Wis., learning to hunt and fish under the instruction of his father, Roy. By age 12, Pat was first-mating on charter boats; by 20, he'd earned his USCG Captain's license. Pat quickly developed a reputation as an expert angler and hunter with abilities beyond his years, partially due to the lessons in conservation biology and sportsmen's ethics that his father stressed as necessary to become a "complete outdoorsman." Today, Pat is also involved in the design and promotion of today's best fishing and hunting products. Whether it's through TV, radio, fishing and hunting magazines, educational seminars or sharing the day's adventure with clients, Pat considers it a privilege to share his knowledge and passion for the outdoors with others.
Captain Tyler Chisholm. Tyler developed a love for fishing as a young kid, while spending many hours musky fishing with his grandfathers and walleye fishing Wisconsin and Canadian lakes with his father. He began his career as a first mate on Lake Michigan at the age of 14 and obtained his Captain's license in 2014. Tyler is known for his enthusiastic personality and positive attitude. He genuinely wants folks to be able to go out and catch fish. The challenge to "get the fish" consumes his every thought. In his free time, Tyler enjoys bowhunting, walleye fishing and waterfowl hunting.
Inland/River Guide Chuck "Chuck-Eye" Strysick. Chuck is a lifelong outdoor enthusiast and educator. Raised in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, Chuck spent summers as a child in northern Wisconsin helping at his relatives' bait shop. He was rewarded with fishing trips and earned the nickname "Chuck-Eye" for his relentless search for walleyes. Today, Chuck is a licensed guide specializing in river and stream fishing. He shares his education programs with sevreal organizations and hundreds of youth and volunteer instructors throughout Sheboygan, Ozaukee and Washington Counties.

He enjoys fishing in the north woods of Wisconsin and Canada for panfish, walleyes and muskies. Outside of fishing he is an avid waterfowl hunter and deer hunter. Seeing a smile on a clients face from catching a large salmon and hearing kids yell in joy is what he is all about.
First Mate Rayven Kalmerton. Rayven has grown up around fishing and hunting and has grown to love the sport. With the help of her dad, uncle, and grandfather, she learned how to do both. She now wants to teach and help people how to fish. She joined the team late in season in 2015, but has been a part of fishing her whole life. It is in her blood and loves doing it.

Caden's favorite part about fishing is creating memories that will last a life time.
