Welcome to Obscure Adventures Guide ServicesBowfishing in Wisconsin is not something that usually comes to mind when you think of angling adventures. However, many lakes throughout the state contain large populations of "rough" fish like common carp, gar and suckers. Here at Obscure Adventures we specialize in guiding clients to a truly unforgettable experience. Depending on the water we guide you on you may take so many shots that your arms get tired, or you may choose to shoot a lake with absolute giants. All of this will be done using industry leading equipment on our custom designed 20' dedicated bowfishing boat. Best of all, we take on this adventure at NIGHT!!
First time bowfishers will see lakes in a whole new light, literally, when they step onboard. Our LED lighting system silently illuminates the water allowing you to see target species, as well as so much more. Rather than hearing a generator humming you'll be able to speak normally (or shout with excitement).
Bowfishing is very family friendly and only requires the person to be able to pull a bow with a relatively light draw weight. NO PRIOR BOWHUNTING/SHOOTING EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY! Adults over the age of 16 will need a valid Wisconsin fishing license. Come and experience Obscure Adventures with us and make memories that you'll remember for years to come.
About UsObscure Adventures is owned and operated by Pete Gregoire of Fredonia, WI. Pete is an avid bowhunter and fisherman, but when he took his first shot at a carp on Random Lake, WI his whole life changed. Bowfishing at night is the perfect fit for his lifestyle, allowing him to spend time with his wife Jody and his kids Logan and Allyson, as well as hold a full-time job with Time Warner Cable in Milwaukee, WI.
Currently Pete works with these associations to promote the benefits of bowfishing to the state's aquatic ecosystems. Carp are prolific spawners and eaters. Their feeding habits in the shallows are detrimental to water quality and clarity, as well as to game fish species. They will eat the eggs of other spawning game fish and the mud kicked up can cover and kill additional fish spawning areas.

SeasonsIt's a common misconception that carp and other species are only shallow during the spring months when they are spawning, but in the lakes we fish it's good from ice out to ice in. If the conditions allow we will start in April and finish in December.
