I have been a professional fishing and hunting guide for over 20 years exclusively in Southern Illinois. I fish all lakes in Southern Illinois including Rend Lake and Lake of Egypt, and have guided clients from all parts of the United States. My passion is getting my clients on lots of fish and game.
I grew up in Whittington, Illinois and have hunted and fished the Rend Lake area my entire life. The family farm is now under water on the South end of Rend Lake. We will catch crappie on that spot if you come in the summertime. My son, Lucas Drake is my first mate and my pride and joy! He is my inspiration to make this business better than ever. When you are a guest of the Boneyard, you will be treated like family.
I also own and operate Boneyard Outfitters, making us the only full service fishing and hunting guide service in Southern Illinois. I spend all my time on the water or in the woods to ensure that every trip you have to Southern Illinois is memorable. Although I have guided for years under other tutelage, I am now independent and excited to venture into making a better guide service. To further accommodate my clients, I have constructed a beautiful 5,000 Square foot lodge that will provide our guests with a comfortable lodge with state-of-the-art appliances, bathrooms and recreation room. Boneyard Fishing will also have the only complete fish cleaning station in the Rend Lake area.
I work with fundraising for worthy causes and constantly try to inspire young people to embrace the art of fishing and hunting. I also work with both the Democratic and Republican politicians in the area on celebrity guide trips and fundraising events. From time to time I film TV shows and write articles with Don Dziedzina (Chicago Tribune Outdoor writer, Owner/producer of Illinois Outdoor TV, and host and producer of Fish and Line Radio Show), Jeff Lampe (Owner of Heartland Outdoor Magazine), and Dale Bowman (outdoor editor of Chicago SunTimes). Dave Watson (Matthews TV) filmed a deer hunting show in December of 2011. I have also guided many legendary outdoor writers: Bobby Whitehead, Curt Hicken, Don Gasaway, and Dan Stefanich to name a few.
We also host a handful of events throughout the year for outdoor writers, as they know that Southern Illinois and Boneyard Fishing and Outfitters is the place to go to catch limits of slab crappie and lunker largemouth bass.
Scott Sevenski is the newest addition to the Boneyard Fishing Guide Staff. Scott knows Rend Lake like the back of his hand, and knows how to get Boneyard clients onto a limit of crappie! Scott's boat is tricked out with all of the latest technology and equipment. All you need to do is bring yourself and a fishing license and get ready to catch fish.
Feel free to bring the kids and family! Scott has a great personality and is very patient with youngsters. What better way to get your kids involved i nthe outdoors than with an action-packed day of crappie fishing on Rend Lake in Southern Illinois!
