"Hire a Fishing Guide..... Yes or No?"
by Captain Darrell Mittlesteadt

November 18th WalleyesIf the eager anticipation, and the thought of filling your live well, is what you set out with on that first morning of fishing is not exactly what you brought in at the days end, a fishing guide should be considered as part of your plan for the future. Hiring a guide does not mean you donít know how to fish.....on the contrary. It means, like any other fisherman, you are interested in learning the techniques and the how to, of the local fisherman.

If this is going to be your first fishing trip to the Vilas and Onieda county area of northern Wisconsin, or if you have been visiting the area since you were a youngster. If you are a novice fisherman or a seasoned veteran experienced on many different waters, hiring a guide is a good idea for a number of reasons.

  1. He is an expert on the area lakes and flowages. He also knows where the fish are biting and what they are biting on. His expertise and knowledge of fishing in the area comes from first hand, daily experiences on these area lakes. Daily experiences that occur in almost every type of condition, throughout the year, that you can imagine.

  3. He is equipped with up to date equipment, gear and tackle, he has the knowledge to use it and the ability to teach you.

  5. Your vacation time is very precious. It makes sense not o waste hours and hours finding the right spot to make your day a success, as well as the reminder of your stay.

Treat yourself to a great northwoods fishing experience and maybe even a traditional Shore Lunch. The experience will give you many memories and stories to return home with and you unwrap your fish and prepare a dinner that will rekindle the memories of your stay in northern Wisconsin and Michigan.
