Booking A Trip

Pike Pole Fishing wants you to have a fun and educational day on the water. Whether it's chasing after walleye, pike, panfish, or bass...we have you covered.  The open water fishing price rates shown include two people, but we can accommodate larger groups. Please call for special pricing on groups of five or more.

Along with open water fishing, we also offer Humminbird sonar training, which can be done in either our boat or your boat. During the winter season, we offer a hands-on ice fishing school, which covers a variety of ice related topics while still giving guests the opportunity to catch fish.

We also offer guests discounted lodging accommodations at various hotels and rental homes throughout the areas we fish. Hotel rooms and rental homes may depend on availability. Please ask about this service when calling to book your trip.

Waters guided during the open water season include: Lake Koshkonong, Rock River, Lake Kegonsa, Lake Waubesa, Lake Monona, Lake Mendota, Lake Ripley, Wolf River, Lake Winnebago, Lake Poygan, Lake Winneconne, Green Bay, and the Fox River. Other waters may be available upon request.

Ice fishing classes are held on a variety of small inland lakes located throughout Rock County.

Call 608-290-3929 to schedule your trip.

What to expect

Open water walleye, pike, pan fish and bass trips: You'll be fishing out of a 2019 Lund Pro V equipped with a 250 hp Mercury motor. For bass trips, you'll be fishing out of a 2013 21' Nitro Z21 rigged with a 250 hp Mercury Opti-Max motor. Both boats are equipped with some of the best technology on the market. All fishing equipment and bait will also be provided.

Ice fishing trips: We typically target pike or pan fish during the ice season. For pike ice fishing trips, you'll be using Beaver Dam tip-ups and can comfortably watch for flags from our heated ice shacks. Pike typically range from 20" to 35", but catching a larger trophy size fish is very possible. We also target bluegill, crappie, and perch using Beaver Dam ice rods and various tackle, all while sitting comfortably in a heated shelter. Pan fish vary in size, but make for a tasty meal.       

Ice fishing school: We offer an educational hands-on "Ice Fishing School" on various area lakes throughout the winter. Multiple guides on site will cover numerous topics related to ice fishing while still giving guests the opportunity to catch fish. Classes consist of a maximum of 12 people. These class dates are predetermined and require advance registration. Click here to learn more.  

All trips: Whether open water or ice fishing, your guides can offer a variety of tips and techniques making your future time on the water more productive. Some examples of topics they can cover include, seasonal fish behavior, weather pattern effects, jigging techniques, sonar interpretation, and much more.

We focus on having fun, education, and providing an overall great fishing experience. We are also a big supporter of selective harvest, so after quickly getting some great photos, all large game fish are released unless they're mortally wounded during the catch. For guests wanting to keep fish, we recommend 1 eater sized walleye , 1 eater sized pike per person and up to 10 pan fish per person.
