Picking the Right Guide
Picking the right Green Bay Walleye Guide can be a difficult task. There are more then enough to choose from that’s for sure! The last thing you want is to hire a guide who isn’t prepared for fishing conditions on the Great Lakes.
Waters of Green Bay
Fishing and guiding the waters of Green Bay for walleye and musky all season long will put you in a variety of conditions. Make sure your guides boat and equipment will keep your trip safe and enjoyable with the weather and wave conditions. Big fiberglass Ranger boats are a A+ in my book. Other big fiberglass boats will do as well. The bay can be an angry body of water at times but sometimes that’s when the fish bite best! Be prepared to fish in most conditions, as long as safety is not compromised, most guides will fish in “less then desirable” conditions. You have to be out there to catch em! Don’t forget your quality rain gear, my gear of choice is Simms Fishing Gear. As a full time Green Bay Fishing Guide I depend on it to keep me dry and warm everyday.
Choosing a Walleye Fishing Guide￼
Electronics are the second most important point to look at while choosing a Walleye fishing guide on Green Bay. Green Bay is a HUGE body of water. The fish move EVERY day. The most efficient way to break down water and find fish is electronics. Guides now are equipped with one or more forward facing sonar units on their boats. The walleyes can be challenging to stay on everyday, but good electronics are a MUST on Green Bay, or any body of water! Don’t forget to ask your guide some questions about the graphs. Regardless of the make, most units you can learn and ask questions about to your guide, and use that knowledge on your own personal graphs. A guide trip should be about catching fish, but also learning something new you can use while fishing on your own.
Choosing a Reputable Guide
Choosing a reputable guide on Green Bay for walleye fishing can definitely be a challenge. Most of the time you can tell pretty quickly how a guide is going to treat you. Do a little research, check some reviews, and choose wisely. Then enjoy what the waters of Green Bay have to offer!
