Live Action Guide Service

Live Action Guide Service is a full-time guide service running trips out of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Captain Zach Stadler is at the helm and is happy to cater to anyone with an interest in the outdoors, regardless of age or skill level. Hop aboard and see for yourself what makes Wisconsin such a popular destination for anglers around.

You will be fishing from a 21’ Nitro ZV21 that’s powered by a 300 HP Mercury engine that will ensure you reach the fishing grounds in no time. There’s room on the boat for up to four anglers, so you can always bring some friends along for the ride. Apart from quality navigation equipment and electronics, the boat has a live bait well as well as a wireless trolling motor that’s very useful for silent runs.

Captain Zach specializes in providing the best possible freshwater experience and will take you fishing for Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, and Muskies on his trips. Some of the gear he tends to use are Chaos tackle, Rapala lures, and Pflueger fishing gear.

The price of any given trip will include rods, reels, and terminal tackle. The exact departure location will vary depending on the species targeted. It will be up to you to bring a valid fishing license, as well as a pair of polarized sunglasses and some sunscreen for the best experience possible.
