Set The Hook Guide Service

Set The Hook Guide Service is located in Spring Park and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters.

Capt. Todd aims to tailor every trip to your specific needs, so let him know what you’re after! Depending on the trip and species, you’ll be using techniques like trolling, jigging, and spinning. You’re looking at 4 to 8-hour trips, where you’ll usually go after the likes of Pike, Crappie, Walleye, Bass, Sunfish, and Muskellunge, depending on the weather and time of year.

Your adventure begins on board a 20 Ranger boat that can fit a maximum of 4 anglers. The boat is fitted with an ice box and wireless trolling motor. Want to bring the rest of the family along for the ride? Kids are welcome aboard, so you’re free to make it a family adventure.

All rods, reels and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing. If you don’t catch a fish your next trip is free.

Please make sure to buy a valid fishing license ahead of time. You’ll be able to keep any legal species caught during the trip.

Book your trip now and hit the water with Set The Hook Guide Service.
