Easily accessible from Milwaukee and Chicago locations, Monasark Guide Service is a multi-species inland guide service that services the inland lakes of Southeast Wisconsin. Captain Jory Simmons has years of experience and will take you to the hottest spots for the most productive day.

Hop aboard an 18’ Alumacraft boat that holds up to 3 guests plus the captain. Powered by a 75 HP Yamaha motor and featuring Garmin electronics, the boat is well suited to these waters and will offer a comfortable fishing trip for everyone on board.

You will fish Lake Delavan and Lake Geneva for Northern Pike, panfish, and Bass. Whatever your skill level, there is a fish out here with your name on it. Even children are welcome on board and will love reeling in their first-ever fish.

Capt. Jory specializes in fishing for Bluegill, although he also regularly targets other species. His aim is to teach the art and techniques of finding, catching, cleaning (and eating!) panfish in Wisconsin’s Inland Lakes.

Offering both half and full day trips, the crew provides everything you need for an enjoyable day on the water. You’ll use top-quality rods and reels that won’t let you down when reeling in your trophy catch or personal best. Live bait is also included in the price.

Please bring along a valid fishing license for the day, as well as any food and drinks you’d like. You’ll want to keep your energy up!

Book Monas Ark Guide Service now for an incredible day out that you won’t forget in a hurry! You are sure to come back time and time again.
