Jack’s Charter Service- Ice Fishing

Capt. Ken Poludnianyk Milwaukee, WI Incorporated Licensed Insured

We have a World Class Brown Trout fishery in Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha Wisconsin throughout the winter ice-fishing season.  We fish in the Harbors and Marinas for huge spawning Brown Trout.  We utilize Automatic Fisherman that are set up in proximity to our heated ice shacks, we also provide jigging rods for those that want to jig in the shelter.  We supply all the rods, reels, tackle and bait that is needed for a successful ice fishing trip!

Captain Ken Poludnianyk is a full time charter captain, fishing Lake Michigan for over 30 years and licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard and State of Wisconsin for over 20 years. We are fully insured for our Lake Michigan Ice Fishing Charters!

For our ice fishing trips, we can take one angler for $300; two anglers for $400; three anglers for $450 with each additional angler $150 – so the more the merrier! We can accommodate 30 guests on this 5 hour ice fishing trip. Jack’s Charter Service’s guided ice fishing trips usually start at 7am.

Jack’s Charter Service offers Ice Fishing Trips from December – March, depending on when the ice comes and goes. January is when we normally get the ice we need for these trips. We’ve been known to catch our largest Brown Trout and Steelhead in January. People from all over the world travel to Milwaukee for our World Class Trophy Ice Fishing!

Late February and March are transitional months depending on the temperatures. Late guided ice fishing trips can be amazing for Brown Trout and Steelhead, and we are also catching these amazing fish in the rivers when the ice goes out.

Ice fishing is a technique where we create a hole in the ice, drop the bait, and wait for the fish to bite. Of course there are subtle things to do to get the fish to the hook (different depths, different lures, etc.) and Captain Ken is happy to teach you the ins and outs of everything you need to know on your next Milwaukee Ice Fishing Trip!

If you’re looking for a true fishing adventure, add a Lake Michigan Ice Fishing Charter to your bucket list! It’s an amazing experience, one you’ll share memories of with your friends and family for a long time! It’s never too early to book your next Ice Fishing Trip – book now!
