I sent you a message...
Hey guys. Coming up to Mercer for a wedding this weekend from SW WI. Have been to the area a few times years ago. I know there's lakes galore up that way, J/W if there's any decent spots in Mercer where I could shore fish for bass. Gonna have 3 or 4 hours to kill on Saturday morning. I appreciate the help in advance guys! Can't wait to get to the Northwoods again.
ajm mentioned a solid choice there. McClellan's father was one of the best on the chain for years!!! I was going to mention Dan at Townline (715.543.2371) first, as he would steer you to the best of the area and be able to get you set up with one that has the time also. If you are unsuccessful, try Matt Raley of Hideaway Hollow Outfitters... 715.347.4868
I would recommend Ricky McClellan. 715-904-0974. Grew up in the area and knows the chain extremely well. I have been out with him a few times and have been very pleased. You may have a difficult time getting him with that short of notice and the busy week. Otherwise I would call Dan at Townline Sports. He knows all of the guides and will not stear you wrong. Good luck and have fun.
The vast majority of local restraints will be open and roll out there new menues, beer,wine this Friday fish fry specials. Starting 4/29. Things are really looking like MW is on a serious upswing.
