Musky&PikeDreamers Southern WI Tour

Discover the fishing abundance of Southern Wisconsin with Musky&PikeDreamers! All you have to do is is pick a species you’d like to target and team up with Captain Eric, who will know exactly where to take you to put you on the bite.

If you’re in Chicago and would like to do some fishing for Yellow Perch, your guide specializes in finding the most productive fishing holes without even leaving the city. You’ll have a reliable boat to take you where the fish are and top-grade St. Croix rods and Shimano reels to help you reel the catch in.

What’s more, before you start your trip, Capt. Eric will show you the best techniques to use, and he’ll talk you through what you need to know to have a successful trip. You can take your pick between half day, full day, and die-hard trips, depending on your fishing ambitions and how much time you’ve got. And don’t worry about your experience, Eric can accommodate all levels.

Come aboard his 19’ Lund aluminum fisher that is geared with quality navigational electronics and can take up to 4 anglers to new fishing victories. There’s a live bait well on board and a trolling motor that will allow you to be stealthy while looking for your prey.

When you catch your limit and decide to come back to land, Eric will clean and fillet the catch for you, which means that you’re one cooking session away from a delicious meal. The captain will go out of his way to organize a fun trip, and on your side, you should take care of your fishing license, drinks, and snacks.

Ready for a new fishing adventure? Because Musky&PikeDreamers is ready to take you to it!

I grew up fishing on the lakes in Southern Wisconsin. I primarily targeted Northern Pike, Bass, and Perch. When I was 14, I started tying Musky lures and I haven't stopped targeting those toothy critters ever since. Its been almost 2 decades since tying my first Musky lure and in that time, I have caught hundreds of Muskies, 40 over the 50" mark. I have almost a dozen lakes around the Southern Wisconsin area perfected, giving my customers the best chance of catching a fish of a lifetime.
