• 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.
• Our season begins in April from Winthrop Harbor, IL where we target both Coho Salmon and Steelhead. Our summer fishing begins in late May from Algoma, WI (Our home port near Door County). According to Wisconsin DNR records, Algoma was once again the #1 port in Wisconsin for both King Salmon and Steelhead. These numbers are available through wdnr website. Your time on the water is important, so if you are going to fish you might as well go with the best!

• Captain Jim starts fishing the Wolf River as soon as the ice goes out and continues fishing downstream to Lake Poygan and all the way to Lake Winnebago. He mainly targets Walleyes, but has been known to take clients after White Bass, Muskie, and Salmon, with the occasional Pan Fish trip. The perch fishing on Lake Winnebago has become phenomenal. As the weather warms up, the Bay of Green Bay and Lake Michigan become the target waters.
The Bay's world class Walleye fishing produces numerous Walleye in the 30+ inch class, and Lake Michigan gives up limits of Salmon. As the summer comes to an end, the focus becomes the elusive Muskie. People come from all over the word to fish this fishery. Whether, you want to fish in your boat or fish in one of Captain Jim's, call today to book your trip!
