Lure-In Fishing Guide Service

Capt. Dennis Ansell Sturgeon Bay, WI Incorporated Licensed Insured

My name is Captain Dennis Ansell. I’m a life long fisherman, going from fishing many tournaments to taking people out fishing and getting them to catch the fish that their after. I invite you and your family to join me for a great day of fishing in Sturgeon Bay!

As owner and operator of Lure-In Fishing Guide Service, I work very hard for customer satisfaction. I bring a positive attidude and years of experience to provide your group a fun, relaxing day on the water. Trips start as soon as the snow melts (usually around February or March), and we can start fishing the Fox River as soon as it opens up in between February and March. As spring progresses, we can fish the Lake Winnebago System, Green Bay, and Lake Michigan. These are the waters I primarily guide on. If you have somewhere you would like to fish near Green Bay, I could accommodate you there as well so you can learn more about the place you would like to fish. 

My boat is a 2006 21′ Tuffy Walleye Boat that can accommodate up to 5 passengers. There is a casting platform for anglers, a livewell for the bait, and navigation system to help us find the fish. All safety features are regularly checked and updated. All life vests for any aged size individuals will be provided. Your family’s safety is my #1 priority.

Trips available include a half day morning, half day evening, or full day trip. On these trips we’ll target what’s in season: brown trout, rainbow trout, coho salmon, king salmon, smallmouth bass, walleye, white bass, pike, perch, or catfish. If you are looking for something in particular, please let me know in advance and I can customize the perfect trip for you.

At Lure-In Fishing Guide Service we take care of all your fishing needs. All gear and tackle is provided, and I will clean & fillet your catch afterwards. Each angler will need to come with a valid Wisconsin Fishing license; and if we’re fishing Lake Michigan you’ll need a trout and salmon stamp. Passengers will also want to bring weather appropriate clothing (rain gear or sunblock depending on season), snacks and drinks (no glass containers), and a cooler to take your fish home. Also remember to bring your sunglasses, camera, and positive attitude!

There’s nothing like a Wisconsin fishing adventure! Book your family’s next trip with Lure-In Fishing Guide Service and Captain Dennis Ansell and have the fishing trip of a lifetime! Let’s Go Fishing!
