What's new for the year 2015

We have just completed our late spring/early summer period of guided fishing trips on Lake Wisconsin. 
I will not be doing any guide trips during the months of July & August.
 Come September, we will be running guide trips again for crappies, bluegills, walleyes & saugers. Guide trips in the fall will continue untill the lake freezes over.

​We also have Gift Certificates available for that favorite person you know who loves to fish. They make great gifts for that "hard to shop for" outdoor person in your life. 

Don't wait to long. Before you know, all the best dates will be booked!

When it's time to decide which jig, plastic or blade bait I'm going to tie on the end of my line, look no further than B'Fish'N Tackle Company. You can find there products on-line at: 
When you book a trip with Ballweg's Guide Service, you'll be fishing out of a 2013 Skeeter MX-2025 bought from Skeeter Boat Center in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. (picture below) Check them out at: skeeterboatcenter.com

The smallest walleye pictured above is 27.5" long. 
(3 of them) Most are 28" or longer and all were caught by my clients.
My Pledge to you
At Ballweg's Guide Service, I understand that people like you don't book a guided fishing trip just to watch me fish. When clients go fishing with me, you sit up front, not me. If you break a jig off on a snag, I will give you my rod to fish with while I retie your line. If you hook up with a fish, I will be ready with the net. In my boat, it's always been that way and always will be. When you book a trip with Ballweg's Guide Service, I pledge to do everything possible to not only help you catch fish, but teach you why the fish are where they are, how to find them and what techniques to use to put them in the boat.  I realize this is your chance, not mine, to land a big fish and I will do everything possible to make that happen.
