If you’re all about sport fishing, Wisconsin waters is home to some of the biggest and most exciting freshwater game fish in North America.
Sport fishing is a huge sport in Wisconsin, whether they are practicing catch-and-release or just hunting for that next wall mounter to show off to all his or her friends.
The primary game fish in Wisconsin are the largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, walleye, northern pike, and muskie. There are a few others and some variations of these, but these fish are by far the most commonly fished for in the state.
Many lakes in Wisconsin hold fishing tournaments every year… and every year, thousands and thousands travel to this state to participate in those tournaments. Whether they come in first place or last place, nobody leaves unsatisfied.
Sport fishing is fun and exciting in many ways. Usually you stay pretty active… what I mean is that sport fishermen are constantly on the hunt for the fish they are after… and they never stop casting or reeling. There’s no downtime. It’s actually hard to get bored, and that is a part of what makes it fun. I’d rather be constantly casting, reeling, flippin’ and jerkin’ than watching a bobber sit and float on top of the water. Another big part of the excitement is always knowing you could be seconds away from a strike at any moment… even intense at times, especially when you’ve found a spot where you just know there’s fish, which leads us to the best part about sport fishing… catching the fish!
There is no better feeling to a fisherman than when he or she feels that strike and sets the hook.
Now, you’re probably thinking, “What are the best lures to use for these game fish in Wisconsin?” Well, if you insist…I cover that subject on my fishing lures page.
Fishing in Wisconsin is great… and if you’re into hunting for the big boys, you won’t be disappointed by what Wisconsin offers. There are even many sport fishing charters in the state where you will have a guide with you the whole time… even if you don’t have tackle, a boat, or fishing knowledge. Even if you hate touching the fish, many guides will even take your fish off the hook! How’s that for service?
If you enjoy fishing for smallmout bass, largemouth bass, walleye, northern pike, or muskie, you must try sport fishing in Wisconsin… you’ll be hooked!
