Carl Kaufmann has been fishing Wisconsin waters for the last 40 years and has concentrated most of his time on Lakes Geneva and Delavan plus frequent trips to the Winnebago System and the Mississippi River. Carl is a former President of Walleyes Unlimited, U.S.A., a past Club Champion, and is considered by many as one of the finest multi-species fishermen in the Midwest. Guiding and teaching his clients how to catch more and larger fish is a passion of his and he tries to pass that along to whomever gets into the boat with him.

A day on the water is a learning experience as Carl demonstrates techniques in bait selection, presentation, and reading conditions on the water. Use of spinning and casting gear is taught to the novice and fine tuned for the more experienced fisherman. Whether it is pursueing bass, walleye, pike or any other Midwest specie, your day on the water will be well spent because Carl guarantees that you will catch fish or no pay.

Some past history:
  • President of Walleyes Unlimited U.S.A. for two terms
  • Club Champion in 1996
  • Finished Second in Club Championship four different years
  • Won 200-team MWC Tournament at Red Wing, 1995
  • Has well over 120 walleyes over 8 pounds including a personal best of 14# 0 oz. in 2007

  • Has caught and released muskies of 46,47 and 50 inches
  • Has given seminars and clinics on fishing for the last 35 years
Fishing for the most active species of fish at a particular time of the season is how Carl gears his fishing. When the bass are active, you'll fish for bass, when the walleyes are going, you chase them, when the big pike are schooling and hungry, you go after them. The right species at the right time with the right technique.

You will enjoy the day on the water in Carl's 681VS Ranger powered by a new Mercury ES accompanied with a new Minn Kota i-Pilot trolling motor. All gear and tackle is provided. Just bring along your wet-weather gear and something to drink and you'll be all set.
