Let’s Go Fishing!

Gare's Guide Service Hello I'm Gare, welcome to my guiding information page. As a full time resident of the Sugar Camp - Eagle River Wisconsin area, I have been fishing these waters most of my life, and have developed a knowledgeable base of the fish present in them. My guiding experience is for most species and I specialize in teaching people especially kids and beginners to fish for Musky, Northern Pike, Crappie, Walleye, Bass, and Icefishing.

Spending a day on the water with me I will educate you on proper fishing techniques, boating safety and how it applies to the waters we are fishing. I will give detailed info on how and why we are fishing the spot we are fishing. This is how you learn the tricks and patterns that are usually working for that particular spot or lake.

I guide all year spending over 250 days on the open water and ice. I am a avid catch and release supporter for Muskies and Bass. My largest released Muskie to date is 54 ¼" and I am a holder of two world record bass line class records. The 2005 season was also a very successful season.Took the top 2 honors in the vilas county musky marathon guides division and 6 fish in the top 10!! Also numerous other awards for other clubs as well.

Some of my favorite waters are, The Sugar Camp Chain, Lakes North Nakomis, Pickerals and Muskellunges(both in Vilas and Oneida counties).Gilmore,Sweeney, Eagle River chain,Three Lakes chain, Escanaba, Fish Trap and High,(my cousin has a resort on Fish Trap and I have spent many a day fishing them 2 lakes). Clear, Indian, Two Sisters lakes. These are just some of my favorite waters. Chances are I fished many of the other waters not mentioned here as well.

About Your Adventure:

I fish out of a 17 ft Tuffy Esox mag powered by a 80 hp Mercury. My boat is rigged with full electronics and set-up for night fishing. I will provide any necessary fishing equipment that you need. You’ll need to bring rain gear, lunch, and sunscreen. A fishing hat and polarized sunglasses are good to bring along to see the fish follow ups or if we go shallow water sight fishing, and don’t forget the camera and fishing license.
