Ever wondered why the lakes of Wisconsin are an angler’s haven? It’s about time to find out with the help of JNB Guided Fishing. Captain Jeff Bennett, the owner and operator of this charter, has been fishing in Wisconsin lakes and rivers since childhood. He runs fishing trips all around The Badger State – Puckaway Lake, Green Lake, Swan Lake, Lake Petenwell, the Fox River, and the Wisconsin River.

Your trip will take place on a fully rigged 20’ Tuffy boat. She’s powered by a 115 HP Yamaha tiller engine, equipped with Hummingbird and Lowrance electronics, and a Minn Kota trolling motor with i-Pilot Link installed. There is enough room for 4 guests to fish at the same time.

There’s only one thing more delicious than a fresh Walleye for lunch – fresh Walleye that you have just caught! Luckily, Capt. Jeff specializes in catching this fish, and also target Crappies, Northerns, and Panfish. Capt. Jeff will prepare your fishing equipment and live bait in advance, and for a small charge he can clean and fillet your catch after the trip.

The only thing you need to do before the trip is purchase your fishing license and tell the captain where you would like to fish, so he can pick you up. There is no minimum age policy and children of all ages are welcome.

The core value of Capt. Jeff’s guide service is the belief that customers’ needs are of the utmost importance. That’s why a high percentage of his fishing business is from repeat fishing customers and referrals. Join JNB Guided Fishing and discover Wisconsin in a new way!

I grew up in Wisconsin, started fishing as soon as I could walk with my family. I have loved fishing and taking family and friends all my life. We will be trolling and jigging for Walleyes and Northerns. We will be teaching you all the latest ways on catching them.
