Bass Guide Service invites you on a first class Bass fishing trip in the waters of Itasca, Illinois. Your guide is a licensed Bass guide John Angel who is a semi professional bass fisherman, a multiple year state tournament qualifier, and a 2012 classic winner.
Guide John will take you on a personalized Bass fishing trip to a freshwater body of your choice. He says: “I guarantee to put you on fish but it’s up to you to catch them”!
You can choose to fish the Des Plaines River located just south near Joliet, or the Illinois River near Morris, the Braidwood cooling lake in Braidwood, the Mazonia lakes, the Heidecke, or north near Fox Lake Chain of lakes or any combination. You can also travel as far as Wisconsin where you can fish Delevan or Lake Geneva, which are located approximately one and a half hours away.
Guide John will take you out on a fully equipped 22-foot pro Nitro Bass boat, powered by a 250 HP Mercury engine. You will be targeting Largemouth Bass and/or Smallmouth Bass on artificial lures which guide john will provide. You are responsible for obtaining a valid fishing license which you can do online at state Illinois DNR or Wisconsin DNR websites.
Bass Guide Service can take you and one more person out, and he will gladly teach you how to look for, cast for, and how to catch Bass. If you would prefer to tournament fish, guide John can arrange it, but please note, it is limited to available tournament trails.
The half day and full day trips are inclusive of gas, and the full day + accommodation trips include gas, boat, transportation, lodging, meals, all fishing gear, and your guide.
