While I have been fishing my whole life, I have been a professional Wisconsin fishing guide for the past 10 years! I founded Cast N Catch Charters in 2012 when I moved to Washington Island, which is located off the tip of the Wisconsin Peninsula. Trips are run off Washington Island July til Novemeber. I spend May and June fishing for Door County’s Trophy Smallmouth. I have been fishing Door County since 2008 and have an amazing understanding on the area surrounding the Door Peninsula.

Cast N Catch Charters believes in providing a safe and fun trip. Captain Jimmy is Nationally Registered Paramedic which includes training in first aide and CPR. Captain Jimmy also strives to teach you new techniques and strategies to help you become a better angler.

My leisure and guiding time on the water takes me to some of the best fishing areas throughout Door County Wisconsin.

Some of my favorite areas include:

Sturgeon Bay– Trophy spring small mouths! I guide here during May and June.

Egg Harbor– Guiding for Smallies in the Harbor provides a low pressure smallmouth haven during certain weeks of the year.

Fish Creek– Mid-Door smallmouth are the hidden gem of the peninsula, so many fish and a lot less pressure!

Sister Bay– Northern Door County at its finest! Fishing in sister bay most of June provides spawn and post spawn action!

Rowley’s Bay– Shallow water sight fishing along with pre-spawn giant smallies!

Washington Island– The Island offers trophy summer and fall Smallmouth trips. Enjoy a ferry ride thru Deaths Door over to Lake Michigan’s Smallmouth paradise off the tip of Door County.
