Anglin’ Adventures - Waushara County Lakes

Captain Steve Mortenson of Anglin’ Adventures offers a full-time fishing guide service on all of the Waushara County Lakes and is ready to put you on the trail of your next trophy fish.

Going after colossal lake superstars like Northern Pike, Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, Musky, and Walleye is Capt. Steve’s specialty and he’s got over two decades of fishing experience that speaks volumes. He knows where the fish hide, all their tricks, and more importantly, he knows how to find them and tempt them with the best bait presentation.

Waushara County Lakes offer pristine, crystal clear waters that have great potential for hooking your next brag-worthy catch. Of course, none of this would be possible without a reliable boat to take you to the right place at the right time.

Your fishing platform for the day is a 21’ Triton boat powered by a 225 HP Mercury engine. She’s compact, has excellent fishability, and can accommodate up to 6 anglers ready to be amazed by the size of fish they could reel in.

The captain will have Daiwa rods and reels ready for you, so you don’t have to lug around your own. If you get to some skinny waters, no worries, there’s a wireless trolling motor that will make it possible for you to sneak up even to the spookiest of fish.

Not only will Capt. Steve put you on the fish, he will clean it for you as well, free of charge. With so many delicious species that could find their way to your hook, this complimentary service will make a big difference. You will also get a video of your brightest fishing moments as a souvenir.

You can choose from half-day, 3/4 day, and full day trips - it’s up to you to decide how much time you want on the water to snatch something remarkable. Turn to Anglin’ Adventures and let Capt. Steve take you to your next personal record!

Steve Mortenson with Wisconsin's Anglin' Adventures Fishing Guide Service prides in being the first choice when it comes to catching trophy Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, colossal Northern Pike, Musky, Walleye, and Panfish. He's been successfully fishing tournaments for over 20 years and has taken several first place finishes, which speaks enough about his angling expertise and knowledge. Capt. Steve also has a World Record Achievement Award, and he's come very close to breaking the Smallmouth Bass World Record for catch-and-release category in the last 5 years. I currently am working in building my youtube channel Smallmouth Addiction and I love recording fishing videos.
