These trips will be dedicated to learning techniques and strategies for catching more muskies, or getting your first fish in the boat. Captain Matt Raley is one of the top musky tournament fishermen across the country so he knows a thing or two about the species and how to consistently catch them. Captain Matt Raley has spoken at numerous musky clubs, fishing schools, and big name musky and outdoor expos. On a musky trip you will learn top techniques and how to identify fish locations depending on the time of year. Musky fishing trips do involve some effort since most all trips we will be casting. Captain Matt Raley can handle everyone from young to old but it does take some effort to catch them. Most people handle around 3-5 hours of musky casting so many of the musky trips are half days. If your a die hard and just want to cast we can fish the whole day but many trips we can put together a successful musky trip in a morning or afternoon.

Musky Fishing Trips are offered in 3 different packages:

1/2 day trip:  Spend a great morning or afternoon chasing muskies. Total price is $250 and is good for 1-3 people.  This trip is great for most anglers looking to get out to chase muskies.  Most anglers can cast effectively for about 4 hours before they start to wear down.  Pricing is set so if you have a 3rd person you do not charged more.  Many area guides charge for a 3rd but Captain Matt Raley has plenty of rods in the boat at all times and the room so he does not charge for it!  Captain Matt Raley also includes live bait if used on the trips so there are no extra charges on any of the fishing trips!!

Modified full day: The reason why Captain Matt Raley calls it a modified full day trip is because instead of grinding out a full day on the water all at once he likes to break up the day and hit both prime times (morning and evening).  Most fishing guides grind out a full day all at once and you get done mid-afternoon which means your wasting time and energy when fish do not want to bite and then you also miss a great feeding window during the evening.  Spend half the day fishing muskies, go in and relax,  then head back out to fish the evening bite window.  You can use the second part of the day chasing more muskies, or you could go for walleye, bass, or multispecies instead.  This is a great trip for those of you who want to fish for muskies but also want to bend the rod some more or have fish to take back for a fish fry. This is Captain Matt Raley's favorite trip where people fish walleyes or multi-species half the day, head in for a little R&R, and then head back out for muskies!  Price is $450.  This price point is really good amongst other area fishing guides and you get way more for your buck since Captain Matt Raley will be guiding during both prime times and you don't get charged extra for a 3rd angler and live bait is included!
 

Full Day:  This trip is for those of you who want to cast and cast some more!  Captain Matt Raley has this trip set up for people that want to spend the full day casting.  Best if you have some musky fishing experience.  During times of the season the day time bite can be good so fishing throughout the day is a good option.  Usually the best time for this is during the early part of the season when water starts to warm or in the fall when water is cooling and a good day time musky bite occurs.  It is also good throughout the summer months when you have a good moon period and the major is during the day.  Price is $400 and is good for 1-3 people.  The reason why it it slightly cheaper than the modified full day is because Captain Matt Raley is not spending the gas money pulling his rig to run back and forth from your lodging accommodations, his house, and the lakes that are fished.

These trips are for a good ol' fish fry or rod bending action. You can target walleyes, largemouth or smallmouth bass, northern pike, and panfish. You pick it! These trips are good for any ability or age level that just want to catch fish. Live and artificial bait techniques will be used on most trips. One of the most under pressured fish in northern Wisconsin is the great diversity of bass fishing. You can consistently get trophy sized smallmouths of 20" or greater in this area and other lakes hold really good numbers. The same goes for largemouth bass.

Live bait (which is included in the trip price) rigging under slip bobbers or pitching jigs are the primary summer techniques for walleyes and bass. Just like Captain Matt Raley's Professional Musky Trips, you will be using some of the best rods and equipment on the market. Captain Matt Raley has side imaging electronics which is a huge advantage in trying to find schools of feeding fish. Trips will be offered in half days segments. If you want to fish full days that is not a problem. Depending what you want to fish for and time of year Captain Matt Raley usually recommends that you head in during mid-day to hit the prime time of the morning and evening bite windows to ensure the best success. He can custom tailor any fishing combination you want that will meet the wants and needs of your fishing party!

Walleye, Northern Pike, Panfish & Lg. or Sm. Mouth Bass Fishing Trips are offered in 3 Different Packages:

1/2 Day:  Half days trips can be used to fish a morning or afternoon.  Can be used to target any species you would like to fish for or have a trip where we get a good variety.  Fish for Walleye, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, or Panfish (crappies, bluegills, or Perch since Captain Matt Raley can break it down and target them individually as well). This is a perfect trip for those of you who want to spend some time on the water for a great rod bending time or bring home a meal of fish.  Its a great trip for any age and ability level.  Captain Matt Raley can keep young kids entertained along with teach anyone a few tricks of the trade to get fish to bite more consistently. 
Captain Matt Raley also sees this trip being used a fair amount when people are staying on a lake for the first time and want me to take them around and show them productive areas to fish on their own during their stay.  On those trips you usually spend some time fishing and then Captain Matt Raley also shows you other productive areas to try on your own.

Modified Full Day:  Captain Matt Raley calls it a modified full day since many days he does not fish 8+hrs straight.  Depending on the time of year and species targeted Captain Matt Raley likes to split the full day into two half day trips.  This usually works out best due to when fish want to bite, and also fishing fatigue.  Many days eight hours or more of straight fishing is pretty tiring no matter what your doing just being on the water and out in the sun makes for a long day.  So what Captain Matt Raley has found best is to break it up into two different outings and package it into one trip price.  You fish a morning, come in and you can relax or do something during the middle of the day, and then head back out for an evening outing. It has many advantages over just fishing straight through and ending mid-afternoon. 
This is a great trip if you want to maximize your day fishing or if you want to target a couple different species in the same day. This trip comes with many differnt options since you can target different species in the morning and afternoon or stay with the same. 
Another great thing about the modified full day that Captain Matt Raley does with many groups throughout the season is if you have a larger party and want to swap people in and out so multiple people have a chance to fish.  Can take 2-3 people in the morning then swap out for the afternoon without getting charged more!  He does have multiple guides that he works with so he can arrange several guides for large parties but if you have 4-6 in your party and want to break up the cost you can split the full day amongst your group and each fish 1/2 the trip and only get charged the full day rate which saves you money!

Full Day:  This trip is offered during the right time of year depending what species you want to target.  Example: mid-May through mid-June and you want to target trophy smallmouth bass.  During this time frame the mid-day bite will be good for chasing smallies around in the shallows.  This trip is offered depending what you want to fish for during certain times of the year.  If this is a trip your looking at Captain Matt Raley can let you know if its a good option depending what you want to catch during the time of year your looking to fish.  Pricing is $400 and can accommodate up to three anglers. Pricing is cheaper than the modified full day since there are times when its a good option and Captain Matt Raley saves a little money so he will bring those savings to you!  Captain Matt Raley will be spending less gas money driving back and forth from your lodging, his house, and the lake(s) you will fish. Contact Captain Matt Raley if you want this option and he can let you know what the best fit will be.
