About UsPike Pole Fishing Guide Service was established with a firefighter theme in mind. Although pike are one of the fish species we target, the company name "Pike Pole" actually came from a tool used in the fire service and by whalers during the early fishing industry. Owner, Adam Walton, started fishing at a young age with his grandfather, Roger, who is a retired career firefighter and avid angler. Roger was a huge influence on Adam's own firefighting career and professional angling passion.
For open water fishing, we run three main boats, including a 2012 Crestliner Raptor equipped with a 200 horsepower Mercury motor, a 2011 Crestliner Fish Hawk equipped with a 75 horsepower Mercury motor, and a 2013 Nitro Z9 equipped with a 250 horsepower Mercury motor. All boats are equipped with side scan/down imaging sonar, Minn-Kota bow mount trolling motors, and GPS navigation. Fishing equipment and tackle, which is all provided, includes numerous high quality products.
For ice fishing, Pike Pole Fishing uses the best equipment available. Many times this includes prototype and newly released products not available in stores yet! Some main equipment includes: portable Eskimo ice shelters, "Mr. Buddy" heaters, Eskimo propane augers, Marcum electronic flashers, Aqua-Vu underwater cameras and Beaver Dam products.
