About Your Fishing GuideMy name is Micah Langkamp and my family and I have been fishing the lakes of Hayward, Wisconsin for over 30 years. Fishing has been a passion of mine since I was a youngster and I love sharing my passion with others who decide to join me for a day on the water. I enjoy fishing with highly skilled anglers as well as teaching beginners the basics. My goal for every day on the water is to see you grow in your knowledge and ability to put more fish in the boat. I look forward to our time on the water together!
Fishing InfoMusky Fishing
Early season (May-June) can be an excellent time to target muskies here in Hayward, WI. Many anglers are looking to deal with an itch that hasn't been scratched since the previous October or November. Fishing the right body of water this time of year is key.
Lakes & rivers with darker water warm up quickly this time of year. As a result, muskies spawn earlier and begin to feed & set up on mid-lake structure before those in larger clear-water lakes. If you fish with me in the early season you will most likely be on a lake/river/flowage that has a lower level of water clarity to it. This is for good reason!
Summer fishing (late June-early September) can be an excellent time to target both size and numbers of fish. Mid-lake structure including islands, humps, saddles & deep weeds will be the typical structure I'll have you as my clients fishing this time of year. I've found that muskies tend to become more and more aggressive as the water makes its way up to the 70 degree mark. As the water climbs into the mid-70's some of the bigger fish will suspend in open water relating to baitfish that are roaming the basin. Open water fishing is something I am willing to do with my clients but it does take some getting used to for most anglers. For those that are more comfortable with casting to structure, I totally understand. There are many shoreline spots & types of structure that hold fish throughout the entire season that I spend most of my time on.
Smallmouth Bass Fishing
Walleyes can be alot of fun when they are up shallow in the early season; we will also find them on deeper humps/gravel bars/wood in the summer months.
Northern pike are usually weed related and are also mixed in with the muskies. I have a number of lakes I guide on targeting pike where 20-50 fish is common in a day of fishing.
Crappies, sunfish & bluegills are a nice option for the pan. I spend a good amount of time in the summer months jigging with crawlers or leeches over cribs, wood and in open water for them.
Largemouth bass fishing is fun on some smaller lakes along with the Chip & Big Chetac. They are plentiful and fun to catch on a number of different presentations. Spinnerbaits, plastics, topwaters & crankbaits all have their time.
