Booking A Trip

Pike Pole Fishing wants you to have a fun and educational day on the ice. We offer many packages for various fish species. We can also customize packages to fit your needs. The price rates shown include one or two people, but we can accommodate larger groups. Please call for special pricing on groups of six or more. 

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

We offer ice fishing trips on many different lakes throughout Southern Wisconsin, including Lake Koshkonong, Lake Kegonsa, Lake Monona, Lake Mendota, Lake Waubesa, Gibbs Lake, and Lake Ripley. Other waters may be available upon request.

Call 608-290-3929 to schedule your trip.

What to Expect

We offer guests the opportunities to target a variety of species through jigging or tip up fishing. We use Beaver Dam Ice Fishing products, including rods, rail style tip ups, and insulated plastic round tip ups. We also provide Humminbird ice sonar units to help jigging productivity.    

Guests can fish from our large portable Eskimo shelters or our new aluminum Zero 4 Outdoors drop down shelter. If fishing locations are not located within a short walking distance, transportation to these areas will be provided by ATV's or full size vehicles. 

Full day trips can include a grilled lunch (hamburger, hot dogs and baked beans) for an additional charge of $5.00 per person.

While out on the ice, our guides can also explain and teach guests a variety of topics. These include, but are not limited to:

Weather pattern effects

- Seasonal fish behavior

- Ice jigging tactics

- Tip up tactics

- Flasher and ice sonar operation

YOUR CATCH

After we get some great photos, catch and release of large game fish, such as walleye, northern pike, and musky is strongly encouraged. Smaller legal sized game fish and pan fish make great table fare for guests choosing to keep fish. 

To help maintain a great fishery for future generations, we recommend walleyes over 18" and northern pike over 30" be released. However, any large fish that is hooked in the gills or suffers injury are excluded. Many times these fish will not survive long after being released.

Also, if the walleye, northern pike, or musky is your first trophy and you're looking to mount it, options can be discussed. We work closely with Don Rich of Nature's Touch Taxidermy, located in Janesville, Wisconsin. Nature's Touch offers both standard mount and replica mount options that customers can choose from.  Don is a second generation taxidermist who has award winning work displayed in many homes. "Click Here" for more information on Nature's Touch Taxidermy.
