Every registered guide in the state of Wisconsin pays a fee for a license
to operate as a guide. The guide also makes the following oath:
I, _________________ do solemnly swear that I will well and
faithfully perform the duties of the office of a guide licensed by the
State of Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to guide,
direct and assist other persons in fishing in accordance wit
provisions of s.29.512., Wis. Stats.

How much does a guide cost?
Many guides will offer a half day or a whole day guide service. A full work day is 8 hours
(no exceptions). Obviously, a half day should be half as much as a full day. The cost
should not go up if more than one person is hiring the guide. Full day guiding usually
includes the courtesy that you pay for lunch. A full day guide job runs from $300 to $375.
If you are paying more, then you are paying for a name as well as for a guiding service.
Also, many guides will quote a price that is contingent upon having action...if you do not
have action the price is usually less.
How do I know if the guide is good?
Ask other fishermen about the guide you are considering. If you hire a guide through the
resort you are staying at you are less likely to get a bum steer. Ask to see the guide's
License. Check out the guide's boat before you hire him; typically, a shabby boat is an
indicator of a shabby guide service. Beware the guide that toots his own horn; if he is a
successful guide other people will "sing his praises".
