Madison Chain


I’m fortunate to live within minutes of one of the best multi-species fisheries in Wisconsin. These lakes have something to offer everybody regardless of skill level and experience. Kids encouraged! Please call or submit a form below if you’re interested in spending some time on the best part of Madison! Staying at the Edgewater Hotel? We’ll schedule a pick-up right from their pier! Evening lake cruises available too. Contact me for times and rates.
