Why Hire a Fishing Guide?

Find out where the fish are biting, what waters are producing and what the most effective technique is as the seasons change in Northcentral Wisconsin.

AND…hiring the services of a professional fishing guide is usually cheaper than renting a boat by itself for a single day! Make effective use of your valuable time on the water with Mark Haynes Guide Service!

Testimonials & Reviews


Mark is an amazing guide. He was incredibly patient with a novice and I learned so much about fishing. His boat is beautiful. I caught my first Musky! Very exciting.

We had a great time with Mark! Great insight and learned a few new things while out on the boat. Was very friendly and we would definitely recommend him if you’re looking for a knowledgeable guide in the Eagle River/Land O Lakes area!

Mark has been guiding for me and my family for many years.  Let me just say, Mark knows how and where to catch fish...walleye, northern, bass, name it, he knows how to guide us into them.  He’s great.  Even better, he’s one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet.  Keeps a clean boat and knows how to teach the novice and experienced angler how to feel for that nibble on the end of the line. Next time you’re in the area and want to catch some fish, I’d suggest you call Mark.

“Uncle Mark” has been my family’s annual fishing guide since 2012.  Mark is patient, informative and wants to get you fish!  I would highly recommend Mark for novice fishermen, fisherwomen and kids, as he gives helpful instruction and tips, but not in an overwhelming way.  Mark might seem shy, but he’s got some witty one-liners that will crack you up.  He’s comfortable with periods of quiet time; perfect for my uncle’s occasional boat snooze, and joins in with classic fishing stories, when applicable.  My cousins and I might make him blush at times with our stories and shenanigans, but he now knows to expect them.  We always have a blast and love filling up the stringer with walleye.  Being out on the water with Mark is always a highlight for my family each year.  Can’t wait to keep a tight line with him this fall!

Mark is a soft-spoken, no pressure type of guy.  You feel comfortable with his guidance and he puts you on fish.  No question: as many guides as I have used over the years, Mark provides the best experience.
