Explore the excellent local fishery with one of the trusted Minocqua fishing guides. Wisconsin’s lakes are well-known destinations for all inshore fanatics, however, Minocqua’s lakes are definitely some of the state’s hidden gems. Nicknamed “The Island City” for the numerous lakes surrounding it, finding a fishing spot in Minocqua is hardly a difficult task.

The main draw of Minocqua is the stellar assortment of available species, offering anglers of various skill levels a challenge well worth their time. From impressive Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass to local favorites like Musky, Northern Pike, and Walleye. These fish won’t go down without a fight, so make sure to bring your A-game!

Local guides typically offer standard full day and half day trips to accommodate anglers after a trophy catch, as well as those trying to get acquainted with the local fishery. It’s up to you whether you’ll focus on targeting a particular species or whether you’ll go after everything that’s biting that day.

Since the fishery is made up of numerous lakes, guides don’t typically keep their boats docked in marinas. Instead, they’ll simply meet you at the boat ramp of your lake of choice. Your professional guide will take you where the bite is hot, so don’t be surprised if you switch lakes mid-trip.

Rules & Regulations

Before beginning your adventure on Minocqua’s lakes, make sure to obtain a fishing license. Depending on your plans, you may have several options to choose from so just consult the relevant government websites ahead of time to get the right one. One last thing to keep in mind is that chumming is not allowed in Wisconsin.

January

Anglers willing to brave the elements in January will be rewarded with some great Walleye action. Ice fishing is likely to be your method of choice and it’s sure to produce some great results.

February

Ice fishing continues to be the main action on most of Minocqua’s lakes and fishing spots. Walleye and panfish such as Bluegill and Crappie are the preferred targets for anglers getting out on the ice.

March

There may still be ice, depending on how harsh the winter has been. However, if the water is starting to heat up, you may already be able to target Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass.

April

With the ice melting away, anglers are returning to the lakes in large numbers, primarily targeting Walleye. However, these are not the only options, as Bass and Pike start showing up in larger numbers.

May

May is the month every sight fishing enthusiast has marked on their calendar. With Smallmouth Bass coming into its prime, anglers in search of a challenge come to the area’s lakes to test their skills to the max.

June

The water’s getting warmer and the bite is following it, too. Bass fishing is still going strong, and Bluegill and Crappie are biting hard as well. The weather can turn quickly, so keep an eye out for the conditions.

July

It’s that time of the year when Musky the local favorite – can be targeted reliably. Typically, anglers have success using topwater lures and bucktails, so give it a shot.

August

Walleye makes a comeback to the list of the most popular targets in August, as larger-sized specimens make their way to the water tops. Bass, Musky, and Pike are all still going strong, so take your pick.

September

With the Walleye bite slowing down, all attention turns to Bass fishing again, which is still going strong. Additionally, Musky is gradually coming into its peak, providing anglers with some thrilling battles.

October

The weather is steadily cooling down and Musky is officially the main game in town. If you’re lucky, this month may even produce a trophy catch – as long as you’ve got what it takes. Alternatively, the Smallmouth Bass and Crappie bite is also good.

November

November is feeding time for the Walleye, and their aggression is welcomed by all local anglers. You’ll likely need a highly-experienced guide for a Walleye excursion in November, since productive techniques and locations vary wildly.

December

With the waters freezing over again, ice fishing becomes the primary technique for all anglers looking to score a nice catch for Christmas. The species you’ll be going after are mostly panfish such as Bluegill and Crappie.

We fish the weed beds on the north side of the lake and the drop offs, depending on what we are fishing for. Lots of pike, landed a 36", in 2015.

We actually fished for 2 days. One day Musky and one day Walleye. The Musky day was a tough, cold, rainy and windy day. We had lots of activity on the suckers but nothing boated, still a great day and hey, that's Musky fishing:). Our Walleye day was a MASSIVE success. Again, Cold and very windy but Captain Pat knew where to go and what bait to use and we killed it !!! Will DEFINITELY call Pat again next year when we come back.

Just want to start by saying AMAZING experience. Myself, my mom and my two sons went out this morning with Captain Dave. The stories, laughter, and fish was priceless. Making memories has become a staple in our family and that is what happened today. On our next trip to Minocqua we will most certainly be calling Captain Dave for another round of fishing!!

This was our second trip with Captain Pat, and just like the first time, it was an awesome experience. He picked us up on our peir where we were staying, and took us to several connected lakes. Our kids had a great time reeling in crappie and bass and blue gill. We will book again!

I organized the Half Day Trip with Captain Pat for my father’s 62nd birthday. Pat was sure to put us on fish and had great stories/conversation. Pat is easy going and has a great sense of humor! The entire trip was enjoyable and we were able to navigate some new lakes in the area!

We had a great morning fishing with Dave! He clearly has ample experience and knows the water and fish very well. It was a challenging morning as the fish weren’t always cooperating but he did a great job of giving us opportunities for fish. Most importantly he was a very pleasant and knowledgeable guide to spend the morning with on the lake and had lots of interesting stories to share. Would definitely hope to work with him again when we return to the area for some fishing!

Great trip on a Great Lake. Went fishing with my 2 70+ parents and myself, their mis-30s son. Had a fun time. Captain was knowledgeable and kept the conversation on the boat going. Dave had some really good fishing spots. Caught more than enough for a fry and we probably missed more than we landed on a sunny day with some wind. Highly recommend.

We had a great morning with Dave. A bit breezy but he still found us fish. Good hearted and great stories too! He even taught us something about cleaning Northern Pike which we’ve always tossed back. Wonderful experience. We highly recommend going on a trip with Dave.

I had a great fishing trip with Pat. We started catching fish immediately, and it never stopped. Not only was this a fantastic fishing trip, but Pat also taught me how to fish in northern WI effectively.

Caught a fish on the first cast... ended up with close to 14-16 fish. Too many to count. Great conversation. Ended the day, on the way back to the car... seeing a bald eagle eating a fresh kill..... amazing day!
