Hello! My name is Joel "Boog" Ballweg and I'm a professional walleye, sauger and crappie fishing guide on the Wisconsin River and Lake Wisconsin.
The waters I guide most on are Lake Wisconsin, which is the last reservoir on the Wisconsin River system and the river itself from below the dam located in Wisconsin Dells all the way down to it's confluence with Lake Wisconsin. l have been fishing these waters my entire life and successfully guiding on them for the past 10 years.
As a young boy, I remember our Dad taking my brothers and I fishing. Our gear consisted of cane poles, hooks, bobbers, split shot sinkers and a freshly dug can of redworms for bait.
That was a pretty basic beginning for sure but it was enough to fuel a life long love for fishing.
