Jeff Evans Fishing Guide

Like most of you reading this, I love to fish, plain and simple. Born in Hayward, WI, I’ve been blessed with many opportunities that have led me to a career on the water. As is the case with most kids, I was introduced to fishing by my father, a retired educator and coach who always made sure a trip to Canada or the Boundary Waters was scheduled at the end of every school year. My grandmother Doris was also instrumental in encouraging my passion and interest for all things fishing.
You see, Doris fished, and she loved to eat what she caught. Bluegills were of special interest to Doris, and some of my fondest and earliest memories on the water were spent with her below the Nelson Lake dam. We always cleaned what we caught after an obligatory stop at West’s Dairy for the best ice cream cone ever made.
 
In 2013, the decision was made to begin guiding full time and devote all energy to my career on the water. I became a credentialed U.S. Coast Guard Charter Captain and certified to guide on waters of the Great Lakes that I’ve fished for many years. This includes Chequamegon Bay and the St. Louis River-Superior Harbor in addition to the inland lakes I’ve been guiding on since 1992. The continued support from my family, friends, and faithful customers has made it possible for me to pursue my passion. You’ve all helped me in so many ways. There aren’t enough words to express how I appreciate having you in my corner. The relationships I’ve made on the water are priceless, and I don’t take any of you for granted.

Even though the days are getting longer, winter is definitely finally setting in around northern Wiscsonsin. Below zero temperatures and the lack of snow throughout much of our region are definitely assisting in ice making efforts especially on Chequamegon Bay.

Our 2018 season began with late ice out and tough conditions, and the end of our season hasn’t been a whole lot different… Crazy cold weather over the last couple of weeks with lots of wind, rain, and snow has plummeted water temperatures into the mid 30’s – mid 40’s depending on where you’re at.

It’s been awhile since we’ve posted a report, but it’s not because we haven’t been on the water. A super nasty stretch of weather has made things interesting over the last couple of weeks, but we’ve had some incredible people in the boat to get through it. Since when did winter start in October?…   [Read more…]

We’re definitely not easing into October with our weather patterns. It’s been a cold week, but falling water temperatures are definitely setting up some predictable fall bites. We fished through a lot over the past several days including wind, rain, thunderstorms, and even ice storms. Seems a bit early for that… Despite the weather we’ve [Read more…]

It’s really trying to be fall around here. Geese are flying south, loons have left, and the tree colors are starting to pop. Extremely warm temperatures continue however, but it looks like big changes are on the way this week. Might be time to put the shorts away…   Mylo Gustafson (Maple Grove, MN) with [Read more…]
