us to reserve your fishing trip

The 5 hour evening
trip gets you on the water at the very best time during
the summer months! The fish are biting and you are out
of the hot summer sun.
I have guided trips
for musky, walleye, pike, bass, or panfish on Hayward
area lakes from a comfortable Tracker deep V walleye
boat or a 17 1/2' Stratos bass boat, as well as guided
kayak river and small lake trips for musky and bass
Fly fishing trips available for smallmouth bass and
both the Chippewa River and on several lakes as well.
FISHING - The Hayward area
is known for it's great musky fishing and has many lakes
to choose from. Over the years I've had several fish
over 50 inches in my boat and to many to count between
40 and 48 inches. However while some of our lakes regularly
produce some real trophies, others are known for action
and produce plenty of action from legal size muskies
but with over 20 years of catch and release going on
even these lakes are starting to produce some nice fish.
Over the last couple years we've caught many mid to
upper 40 inch fish from these "numbers" lakes
and had quite a few days where we've boated multiple
40+ inch fish.
when conditions are not the greatest for catching that
big one from one of the trophy lakes, and we all know
they are not easy to catch anytime, fishing these "action"
lakes produces fish and sometimes a real trophy too.
I fish most of the lakes in the area
and catching muskies is usually not a problem on most
days, it's just the really big ones that don't always
A tip on catching Trophy Muskies,
There are definitely times of the year and conditions
when your odds of catching that real trophy are much
greater. If the time is right, like in the fall or under
the right weather conditions, go for the "big one",and
other times concentrate on just catching legal fish.
By doing this you'll learn more, enjoy it more, and
definitely catch more muskies.

on the best times and lakes to fish, call 715-462-9402

One of Northwest Wisconsin's most overlooked fisheries
is it's bass fishing, both largemouth and smallmouth,
and it just keeps getting better! Our smallmouth
fishing is world class, and it's hard to beat our Largemouth
If you like to catch fish, bass in
the Hayward are provide some of the very best action
and just plain fun fishing! For example, The Chippewa
Flowage not only provides good fishing for musky, walleye,
panfish, and northern pike, it has become a fantastic
fishery for both smallmouth and largemouth bass! It
may well be one of the best bass lakes in Wisconin now!
of our lakes provide as good of bassin' as you'll find
anywhere and when it comes to smallmouth bass we have
a lot of waters that would rank world class smallie
fisheries. Every year we catch many of them from 17
to over 20 inches and there are Smallmouth up to 23
inches long caught!
Also don't overlook the Largemouth fishing
in the area! It too is nothing short of spectacular!
Some of the lakes I regularly fish for them we often
catch 30 or more Largemouth a day with many of them
running 14 to upwards of 20 inches.
Whether you want to fish largemouth
on a secluded lake in the Chequamegon National Forest,
smallmouth on the Chippewa river, or fish the fantastic
smallmouth fishery we now have on many lakes, we'll
take you there and I guarantee you'll come back for
If you enjoy catching fish and bass
fishing you will have a great time here in our area!
CRAPPIE, and BLUEGILL FISHING
Many of our lakes provide some good
walleye fishing, especially in the spring and fall.
I guide walleyes on most of the area lakes including
the Chippewa Flowage. For the walleyes the 5 hour eveing
trips are popular as they are very productive for walleye
There are several area lakes that provide
good panfishing most of the season. Crappie fishing
is usually better in the spring and fall but mid summer
panfish action can be very good and a lot of fun for
family fishing trips. One of my favorite lakes for crappies
and bluegills is the Chippewa Flowage but the fishing
for them is good on Nelson lake, Teal lake, and several
other lakes as well.
For both walleye and panfish I can
take up to 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children in my
Tracker boat, but for bass or musky only 2 guests though.
Fishing - I
also offer guided trips for fly angling for musky and
bass on the Chippewa river and on several lakes as well.
We have some of the best shallow water fly fishing for
both smallmouth and muskies you will find anywhere!
We can fish the rivers from kayaks or smaller boats
but if you want a better chance at at bigger mid 40
inch and up musky, I also guide fly anglers from my
17 1/2' Stratos bass boat as well on many other waters.
Trophy size muskies. Fly
fishing on the rivers is great but don't overlook fly
fishing bigger waters. No matter how you fish for muskies,
consistantly the larger waters produce larger muskie!
I have many lakes we can fly fish on from lakes that
produce lots of muskies to trophy lakes like the Chippewa
Flowage. And fly fishing from a bigger boat is more
comfortable and with it's large casting deck my Stratos
boat is a great boat to fly fish muskies and smallmouth
from, very much like fishing from a flats boat.
Kayak and Canoe trips also available
and canoes are nothing new, but over the last few years
we have seen the paddle sports get even more popular.
The kayaks we have today have evolved into very stable
and comfortable watercraft. With that we have seen specialty
kayaks designed for fishing and an explosion of the
popularity of kayak fishing. It all started in saltwater
but more and more anglers are discovering that fishing
freshwater from a kayak is not only fun but allows you
access to waters where you can't get a bigger boat in.
I have always used canoes to fish some of the rivers
and out of the way spots but have found the fishing
kayaks to be more comfortable and enjoyable to fish
from on these small waters.
offer fully guided trips on the Chippewa River or small
remote lakes in the Chequamegon National Forest
by kayak or canoe for from 2 people
to groups. A great way for the whole family to experience
the wilderness and with an experienced guide along the
fishing is good too. The Chippewa river has an abundant
population of muskies and smallmouth as well as good
walleye fishing. Catching big trophy smallmouth from
a kayak or canoe is fun and a great experience, and
catching muskies from a kayak is maybe the ultimate
freshwater experience! Both casting and fly fishing
trips are available or combinations.

Ice Fishing Trips
Guided trips available
on the Chippewa Flowage for northern pike and panfish.
The Chippewa Flowage is the 2nd largest lake in Wisconsin
with over 15,000 acres, 233 miles of shoreline, and
140+ islands. The Chippewa Flowage was created in 1924.
The damming of the Chippewa River joined the waters
of 11 natural lakes, 9 rivers and countless streams.
It's shoreline is primarily wild which will never be
more than 15% developed. The "Chip" was historicly
closed to all ice fishing for many years but now is
open all winter for panfish and northern pike. With
a huge population of crappies, bluegills, and northern
pike and a great wilderness setting, ice fishing on
the "Chip" is a very unique experience!
Guided ice fishing trips
also available on several other Hayward area lakes for
walleye, crappie, bluegill, perch, and or northern pike
as well. All equipment and gear is furnished and I use
insulated shelters and have portable heaters to make
your ice fishing trip warm and comfortable as well as
fun and productive.
My winter guide rates are
for 1 or 2 people it's $250 and for larger groups we
add in $50 per extra person. Because of the shorter
days and colder weather we usually fish 5 or 6 hour
trips which is what our winter rates are based on.

if you would like more information or would like to
reserve an ice fishing trip this winter.
