Welcome to WDH Guide ServiceServing the Great Lakes and Northern Wisconsin.
Great Lakes Tributary Fishing TripsGreat Lakes Trout and Salmon make major migratory spawning/feeding runs in the fall, winter, and spring into Great Lakes Tributaries, and many trophy fish remain in the rivers and harbors over the winter monthes or come up under the ice, allowing for many months of angling opportunity for big, hard-fighting fish on light tackle!
Northern Wisconsin Musky TripsWe are on the water 5 to 7 days a week beginning with the northern Wisconsin season opener on Memorial Day weekend through late October chasing and catching big muskies! Multiple fish hookups in a day are not uncommon and we put several fish over the 48" mark in the net each season along with copious amounts of fish in the 30's and 40's. Years of tournament angling, diehard pursuit of the muskellunge, and well over 100 muskies in the boat in the 2012 season alone qualify Capt. Jeff to be your guide and show you refined techniques and tactics that WILL produce muskies on nearly any of body of water they inhabit! All gear will be provided though clients are welcome to bring their own.
Northern Wisconsin Walleye, Bass and Pike TripsOur Northern Wisconsin Walleye Pike and Bass fishing trips take place in Vilas, Oneida, Iron, Forest and Price Counties. We run morning and evening trips for walleyes to take advantage of the heaviest feeding windows for these elusive and tasty fish. Average catch rates are 10 to 15+ fish per outing with an average fish size of 14" to 18" with fish in the 20"+ class taken on nearly every trip! Our bass trips have success rates of 100%. You WILL catch bass, GUARANTEED. Average catch rates are 30 to 40+ fish per outing, with an average fish size of 14" to 18" and several fish in the 19" to 20"+ class taken on nearly every trip! Pike are taken on spinning rods casting small to medium sized crankbaits and spinners and success rates for these trips are also very high. All gear and tackle can be provided though clients are welcome to bring their own.
Northern Wisconsin Walleye, Pike & Panfish Ice FishingOur Northern Wisconsin ice fishing trips are second to none! You may choose to target walleyes, pike, panfish or all of the above! Success rates are very high for these trips and most gear (except clothes, boots and a valid WI fishing license) will be provided though clients are welcome to bring their own. We fish in spacious, heated portable shacks or from a permanent shack for evening walleye trips. Walleye trips can be geared towards larger trophy fish in the 25"+ size class or towards a bag limit full of great eaters in the 13" to 16" size range. Pike and panfish trips are largely an action bite with many daytime flags to chase while jigging or tip-down fishing for bluegills, crappies and perch! Average pike size is 18 to 26" with 30"+ fish taken on most trips.
Wisconsin Duck HuntsSpecializing in:
Open Water, Layout Boat and Shore Hunts for:
Green Bay & Lake Michigan Hunts
Excellent trophy opportunity for over 12 diver/sea duck species!Shore/Boat-Blind Hunts
These hunts take place from shore in a variety of areas, which largely depend on wind direction and bird movement. Access to private lands and points located along Green Bay and Lake Michigan are the typical destinations and can provide some of the most fast paced shooting for nearly every species of diver and puddle duck the "Big Pond" has to offer, as well as frequent geese.
Open Water and Layout Boat Hunts
These hunts are typically geared towards diving ducks and sea ducks and as the name suggests, they take place in open water, away from shore.
Depending on customer preference and/or weather conditions, either layout boats or a regular duck boat outfitted with a custom designed open water boat blind are used to provide concealment for the hunter(s).
Decoys are placed in relation to the position of the layout craft and once birds are dropped, they are retrieved using a "tender boat".
Northern Wisconsin Waterfowl HuntsExcellent trophy wood duck opportunity! These hunts take place in northern Wisconsin, typically within a 60 mile radius of the Minocqua/Woodruff area. Typical hunting bags are very mixed and include wood ducks, black ducks, mallards, bluewing teal, greenwing teal and ring-necks (ring bills) with the occasional red head, bluebill, wigeon, gadwall, goldeneye, bufflehead, or hooded merganser depending on migration patterns.
If you are looking for an early to mid-season hunt when the temperatures are usually mild, the birds are fresh, and fall colors are at their peak, (last week of September through end of October) then this is the package for you!
