Fishing Guide Service

With thirty-five years fishing the waters of Southern Wisconsin and running a full time guide service for twenty years based out of Madison, Wisconsin I have the experience and knowledge to put you on fish. Whether you want to chase Muskie, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Walleyes, Catfish or even Panfish on the Madison Chain of Lakes - Mendota, Monona, Waubesa, Kegonsa, or Lake Wingra -I know where they live and how to catch them! Wisconsin River jet boat trips are also available for those that want to get away from it all. 

From beginner fishermen or kids, to professional anglers my goal is to have you leave my boat with the knowledge to do it on your own.

chaos tackle posseidon

We are always looking for that secret bait to catch more

and bigger fish on. I have been lucky enough to be able

to test the new Posseidon throughout the season and it

may be a game changer. When fish are eating the

bait away from the boat it's a good indicator of its

effectiveness. This solid rubber 10" paddletail swimbait

is already a proven fish catching machine. For more
