Kayaks, gear, and guide are included in some packages, or if you have your own kayak, we have the perfect guided trip for you as well.

Tyler Thiede is founder, owner, and guide at Small Craft Outfitters. Tyler is an avid fisherman who loves spending time on the water and sharing his knowledge with others. He has a deep passion for the sport of kayak fishing and when he’s not acting as a guide, he usually out reeling in fish with frogs, spinnerbaits, and buzzbaits. Not only is Tyler a licensed Wisconsin Fishing Guide, he’s also a licensed EMT. There’s no better guide in the area for your kayak fishing trip!

Fishing from a kayak is truly like no other experience you’ve had before. You are the Captain of your own ship! And the kayak brings you literally closer to nature! Kayak fishing is a relaxing sport where you can slow down your fishing and float your worries away. With breathtaking views away from the busy city life, fishing from a kayak in Wisconsin is a great way to spend your day.

Although Largemouth Bass is our primary target, depending on the water and lures used we can also expect to catch Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, Bluegill, Carp, and Crappie. We’ve also seen Musky and Walleye caught on bass tackle from a kayak!

Small Craft Outfitters fishes nearby lakes, including Eau Galle Reservoir, Nugget Lake, and Mississippi Pool 4 Backwaters. Each location has beautiful scenery and great fishery. Our guides will determine which location is best for your group, depending on age of kids in the group and the experience/familiarity level of those in the group. Small Craft Outfitters will customize the perfect trip and make sure you have a fun, relaxing, and successful day of kayak fishing.

Allow Small Craft Outfitters and Tyler to introduce you to the amazing sport of kayak fishing in Wisconsin. It’s a day full of smiling and fishing, sure to create lifelong memories and stories for years to come! Book your family’s adventure today!
