Captain Hooks Fishing Adventures invites you to a day of fishing fun and games on numerous prolific lakes of Oneida and Vilas Counties! With Captain Pat Wingo at the helm, you will hit some of the most productive fishing grounds in the area and learn how to land the biggest fish.

If you’re a freshwater enthusiast, then you’ve come to the right place, because these waters are teeming with the most prized game fish. This means you can expect a wide range of species on your hook – from Bluegill and Crappie to both Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, Walleye, Musky, and Northern Pike.

You’ll use light tackle for Crappie and Bluegill, while heavy tackle is reserved for Musky that can grow to impressive sizes. If you’re going after Walleye and Bass, then jigging is a recipe for success.

Capt. Pat will provide reliable Penguin and Shimano fishing equipment, as well as live bait and lures. After the trip, he’ll clean and fillet the catch, if you’d like, so that you can cook it as soon as you come home.

Come aboard a 20’ aluminum fisher with a 115 HP Yamaha engine and you’ll be on your way to the best hot spots in no time. There’s room on the boat for up to 4 anglers, and the whole group can fish at the same time. The quality navigational equipment will lead the way to your prey and then, it’s your time to shine.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re coming with a group of friends, your family, or you’re hosting a corporate activity, Capt. Pat will go out of his way to organize everything for you. The only thing you should think about is buying fishing licenses, dressing warmly, and bringing a supply of food and drinks.

Captain Hooks Fishing Adventures will show you what great fishing action is all about!

Captain Pat Wingo has been fishing most of his life, and he's been a licensed guide since 1989. Fishing is his passion and calling so much so that he used to hand-make lures. These days, running charters is Capt. Pat's full-time job and he loves teaching anglers of all levels new fishing tricks. He also guides ice fishing expeditions during the winter.
