About Your Trip

The Chain O' Lakes is the impoundment that was created by the daming of the Fox River flowing from the Illinois state border through the chain and heads through McHenry Illinois to the dam. Miles of river and a compilation of lakes close to Milwaukee, Madison, Chicago and Rockford makes access a breeze!
The fishing on the chain is world class in regards to the amount of opportunity and angler has to succeed. The area
offers local amenities with dining, shopping and lodging all nearby. We offer you a northwoods experience in the far suburbs.
We will target a variety of fish depending on what is in season. From white bass to catfish, the chain offers a variety of able fare. We will be on a frozen lake in a heated fish house that is warmed before you arrive via our late model ice fishing machines.

We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
