"I would like to Thank Kent Hutcheson for his outstanding and
professional guide service.
My son and I have been using Hutch's Fishing service for 11 years now. He
has many years of exceptional knowledge of fishing. We have always felt
Hutch's personal interest for our safety and harvesting top quality fish for
our daily limit. Thank you Hutch."

"Hello Hutch, just wanted to say thank you from all of us for one of the
most memorable trips of a lifetime.
The Walleye, Smally, and Northern fishing that you and your guides
provided us was second to none. Going the extra mile the second day to keep
us safe on rough water but still putting us on the fish was greatly
appreciated, and the lodging, meals, service, and the history lessons were
impeccable. We are looking forward to seeing you in 2013.. Once again,

"I've traveled to the Pierre area for over twenty-five years to hunt
peasants, ducks, geese and to fish.
During that time I've taken many trips with "Hutch" and have never had a
disappointing day! Kent Hutcheson is a true "Guides, Guide"!"

"I make an annual trip to South Dakota with my three sons to fish with
I do a lot with my boys but this trip is always great for all of us. Time
spent on the water away from distractions is priceless and invariably brings
us closer. We have many great stories and memories about fishing with Hutch.
My oldest two sons are now in college and are still excited about the next
trip. I have also brought friends and their boys on the trip as well. Hutch
is able to accommodate larger groups as well. Overall, the trip is easy and
stress-free. We also catch a lot of fish along the way. Hutch is a fantastic
fishing guide, but more importantly a great friend."

“With 35 years of experience on Lake Sharp and Lake Oahe, Hutch is a
tireless promoter for everyone to have a great fishing experience while in
the Pierre area.
For the last 10 years I have observed Hutch always going the extra mile
to insure consistent limits for his clients. I am confident that Hutch has
few equals when it comes to knowing these lakes and how to catch the fish on
a daily basis."
"I have hunted and fished multiple times with Hutch.
Always a first class service. Hutch will put you on more pheasants in a
day than most places can in a week. I hunt 25 to 30 days a year for
pheasants and Hutch is the best for quality wild birds. The fishing is
second to none. We went out late this year in December and nailed the
walleye's, 18 inch average with three guy's.
Last year we hunted geese and that is a blast every time. The food is
great, we have a hot breakfast cooked by Hutch, sandwiches in the field for
dinner, and then what ever you want for supper. Beds are warm and
comfortable. If you are going to book one hunt this year make it with Hutch.
My personal favorite is combo fishing and pheasants in the same day for two
or three days in row. Ask around the Pierre area and everyone will tell you
how great a fisherman Hutch is . He has proven it to me and my partners."

"I've known Hutch for the last ten years, and have fished with him and
around him many, many times.
Having been an avid walleye fisherman for over fifty years, I can assure
you there's nobody better than Hutch.
The most experienced guide in the area, Hutch's ability to find and catch
fish under any conditions is absolutely unbelievable to watch and be a part
of. He's a real gentleman and top-notch professional who uses nothing but
the best equipment. For a South Dakota walleye experience you'll never
forget, Hutch is absolutely at the top of my list. Simply put, nobody
compares with Hutch. Give Hutch a call for your next
trip..............You'll never regret it !"
Lt Col Guy Barrett
"My wife and I first met Hutch at a Fishing Show in Omaha some seven (7)
We talked to several of the guides at this show, but Hutch just stood
out. With a personality that makes you feel like you have known him forever
it was a “no brainer” to select him as our guide for Walleye fishing in the
Pierre, South Dakota area on Lake Oahe. Our first guided fishing trip took
place in May several years ago now. The first day temperature was near
freezing, but we fished off the Missouri river below the dam and caught
several walleye before returning to shore around noon, due to some strong
weather that moved in. The next day was a complete opposite with temperature
near 70 degrees. We limited out that day. My wife always seems to catch the
biggest and the most fish and Hutch gets a “kick” out of that. She doesn’t
like touching the fish so Hutch takes these off for her and rebaits her hook
and she is back in business. For the next few years we went just as a couple
and then we had some friends of ours go with us and had a great time. One
evening coming in we fought 5 ft. waves, but Hutch navigated us off the
water and to shore just fine. In more recent years we brought a gentleman
with us in his mid-70’s and Hutch was always considerate of him and made
sure that he had a good time.
Finally, I can state that on several of our fishing trips with Hutch when
others on the lake were not catching fish we always had plenty to clean at
the end of the day. His knowledge of where to go on Lake Oahe is among the
very best. We laugh and have a great time all day long. Come the end of the
day it is always fun to watch him clean and pack our fish for us. On some
occasions we even had some of our fish cooked at the local restaurant that
same evening – it doesn’t get any better than that.
So if you are looking for a qualified guide with much experience and also
a person to have a great time with on and off the lake it doesn’t get any
better than Hutch Hutcheson. My wife and I strongly recommend that you take
the opportunity to join him on Lake Oahe – you will not be disappointed!"

"I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much our group enjoyed
our time with your team in early Sept.
We had a large group of 50 growers attend the outing in SD. Hutch and his
team were instrumental in helping organize the event from start to finish
they took care of everything, from lodging, meals and entertainment along
with providing a crew of the finest guides in SD. All of our fishermen
caught their limits of nice fish averaging 17 - 18 in. each day. Everyone
had a great time and for several a fishing trip of a lifetime. If you are
looking for a Fishing Guide Service that can handle small or large groups I
highly recommend Hutch's Guide Services."
"2011 was best year ever, absolutely fabulous.
Look forward to seeing you in fall."
Hutch, thank you for the fantastic trip.
It was everything you described and more. You, Dave and Paul are terrific
hosts. I don't know if there is any place on earth that you can experience
that number of pheasants and have such world class walleye fishing in one
location. Thanks again Hutch. I am looking forward to my next trip out.
