What to Bring Fishing

For all seasons, you provide the fishing license and anything you want to eat and drink.  A good thing to bring is a rain jacket just in case it rains.  You also will need a cooler to put any fish you might want to keep in.  I will clean all the fish for you.

Walleye:  During spring walleye season you can bring your own poles or use the ones I provide for you, your choice.  The rest of the season all equipment is provided for you.

Northern:  During the spring season we can either troll for northern or jig.  If we choose to jig, you can bring your own pole or use the ones we provide.  When we troll for northern, I provide all the equipment.

Brown Trout: During brown trout season we troll with all equipment provided.

Perch:  Either ice or open water fishing, you can bring your own equipment or I will provide all the equipment needed.

 

We provide all the tackle and bait.
