Lure-In Fishing Guide – Oshkosh

Winnebago Lake’s excellent fishing opportunities are but one cast away, with Lure-In Fishing Guide Service ready to take you to the red hot bite! With Captain Dennis Ansell at the helm, you’re in for a memorable day on the water that you’ll want to brag about.

Join your guide on his 21’ Tuffy boat with a 225 HP Evinrude engine, and enough room to sit up to 4 people. Your fishing platform is perfectly suited for lake fishing, which makes it stable and very fast. Finding fish hideouts will be easy because the captain will use GPS and fishfinder to locate your prey.

Rods, reels, and tackle are included in the price of the trip, as well as the use of live bait and lures. Fly rodders are welcome to bring their own equipment, or they can talk to the captain and he’ll prepare it for them. When you come back to the dock, Capt. Dennis will clean the catch so that you don’t have to get messy.

But what species could find their way to your cooler? Lake Winnebago is teeming with a great variety of freshwater game fish, and you can catch a bit of everything. Steelhead and Salmon are the most delicious catch, while Bass and Walleye are the hardest fighters. You’ll also come across Muskies, Northern Pike, and Catfish.

For this trip, you’ll need to bring drinks, snacks, and food, as well as a valid Wisconsin fishing license. Come fishing with your little ones – they’re going to have a blast, especially on half-day trips.

Book a trip with Lure-In Fishing Guide Service and fall for Winnebago Lake fishing hook, line, and sinker!

I enjoy eating fish so I wanted to put food on the table. My father taught me how to fish with plastic worms and I became interested in tournament fishing. As I fished more tournaments for different species and became consistent at it, I wanted to be able to pass along what I learned to others. So I started guiding for fish, and I really enjoy teaching people how to catch fish on artificials as well as live bait.
