Lakes: Most Hayward Area Lakes including the Chippewa Flowage, Round Lake, Lost Land Lake, Teal Lake, Sand Lake, LCO and NElson Lake.

Specializing in Walleye: I fish several lakes in the Hayward Area. I have had great success on Dark Water Lakes as well as Clear Lakes. Fishing techniques depend on lake & time of year. Specializing on the Chippewa Flowage, Nelson Lake and Big Round. I catch walleye when others are not.

The Hayward Area Lakes are benefiting from extensive stocking and providing good numbers and trophy fish. It’s not uncommon to finish a day with a nice limit of walleye ready for the frying pan.

Musky: Hayward is blessed with several great musky lakes. We can fish a numbers lakes or a trophy lake from top water night action or fall live bait.

Crappie: Nelson Lake & The Chippewa Flowage. Year round action from shallow water spring fishing to crib & migration spots in the fall. I also do well on big bluegills on these lakes.
