musky and bass available.
Fly fishing trips available for smallmouth bass and

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
42 and 49 inches which were 20 to 30 pound muskies.
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
30 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.

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
**May and early June
and October are often overlooked for Smallmouth as many
anglers then concentrate their efforts on other species.
However, while we fish all through the season for them
too, we usually see some of the very best fishing in
those months for absolutely huge Smallmouth bass!**
If you like to catch fish, bass in the
Hayward area 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 overall bass lakes in Wisconin now!
Many 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! One of our best Smallie
lakes is Round lake where the Smallmouth average around
17 inches or more with lots of fish larger than that.
Other top Smallmouth lakes are Lac Courte Orielles and
Grindstone. Many of the smaller lakes also produce good
Smallmouth action and some big ones too.
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.
I guide from a couple different boats,
depending on what I am fishing for and number of guests
going out. I run a new Tracker Pro Guide V16 for most
guide trips and for larger groups, both walleye and
panfish I can take up to 4 people in my Lund Pro V boat,
but for bass or musky only 3 guests though.
Fishing - We
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
guide boats on many of these lakes.
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 is great
to fly fish muskies and smallmouth from.
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 trips on the parts of the Chippewa River, Teal
river, and small remote lakes in the Chequamegon National
by kayak or canoe for from 2 people
to groups. A great way for the whole family to experience
the wilderness and 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!
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.
Winter guide rates are
for 1 or 2 people it's $250 and for larger groups we
add extra per additional person. Because of the shorter
days and colder winter weather our most popular trips
are 4 + hour trips which is what our winter rates are
based on. 6 + hour trips are available for $300.
Live bait for pike or walleye
is extra and guide rates are also subject to 5% sales
