World Class Smallmouth Bass WI

If you’re an avid Smallmouth Bass chaser and you’re looking for your next thrill, then Anglin’ Adventures is the charter to turn to! Captain Steve Mortenson is based in Oshkosh, WI, but he guides trips on all the best Smallmouth Bass waters in Wisconsin.

Not only is he familiar with how the best bite changes on numerous lakes, but he also knows the most productive secret fishing spots where you can easily snatch your next trophy. Year after year, Capt. Steve successfully catches, then releases over 500 Smallmouth Bass that range from 18-20’’ in length, and several hundred over 20’’. This means that whenever you’re ready to head out, chances are, you’ll have a blast and tag something amazing.

For your new personal record hunt, you will come aboard captain’s 21’ Triton bass boat that can comfortably take up to 5 anglers to new fishing horizons. The vessel is powered by a 225 HP Mercury engine that can take you to the best fishing grounds in a blink of an eye.

Everybody on the boat can cast their line at the same time, and you’ll be doing so on the top-grade Daiwa fishing equipment. If fly fishing is your thing, you’re free to do it too, as long as you bring your own gear.

Even though you’ll be going after one of the most acrobatic freshwater species, Smallmouth Bass, you could also find other inshore favorites at the end of your line. Crappie, Largemouth Bass, Sunfish, Yellow Perch, Walleye, and many more could end up in your cooler. After a day on the water, you will get a video that captures every spectacular moment of your battles.

What you should remember to bring is a valid fishing license, snacks, drinks, and a cooler in case you reel in fish that isn’t strictly catch-and-release. Capt. Steve loves having kids aboard as well and showing them how fun can fishing be.

When you book with Anglin’ Adventures, you will experience a time on the water like never before, so get ready to earn your bragging rights!

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.

Giant Smallmouth Bass are Heating Up!!!
Giant Smallmouth Bass are Heating Up!!!
September 5, 2021
Targeted Species: Smallmouth Bass & Largemouth Bass Green Lake is just starting to get good again. Now that the colder nights have finally arrived this is now triggering the Late Summer to Early Fall Bite which has been starting to produce some really decent size smallies. Weed edges have been the key. Smallmouth Bass: We have been catching several smallies on gravel humps or rocks the size of basketballs have been producing the best catches. Largemouth Bass: Have been moving into some of the same areas where we are catching the smallmouth bass. Wacky worming and drop-shotting effective along 12-16’ edges. Ned Rigs have also been a very productive bait choice. Northern Pike: While we have not been specifically targeting northern pike but we have caught several nice 30" pike during the last few weeks during a few guide trips.
