Madison Wisconsin Musky Fishing Guide Service with Jeff Hanson Professional Madison Wisconsin Chain of Lakes Muskie Fishing Guide.

Welcome to the Madison Wisconsin Musky Fishing Guide Service
Jeff Hanson - Professional Madison Chain of Lakes Muskie Fishing Guide

My name is Jeff Hanson and I have been a resident of Madison, Wisconsin and fished the Madison Chain my entire life. I am a lifelong fisherman and outdoorsman. I have been a professional muskie fishing guide on the Madison Chain of Lakes here in Wisconsin for 28 years.

I fish for the "fish of ten thousand casts" the MUSKY. I have been fascinated and obsessed with these fish since I was a young boy. I hope to pass some of my passion for this sport on to you as part of our time together. I also offer trips for northern pike.

From the beginning of Musky season in May through the colder months into October and November, I call the the Madison Chain of Lakes my second home. Depending upon the season and weather conditions I fish Lakes Monona, Wingra, Waubesa, Mud Lake and the Yahara River.   I can find fish for the casual beginner or the seasoned veteran alike.

Whether you are looking for that first musky or the trophy of a lifetime, I have the knowledge and experience to help you realize that dream. Spend a day on the water with me on the Madison Wisconsin Chain of Lakes and learn proven musky catching techniques.
