Hello. I am Captain Guy Lopez A Seasoned Lake Michigan
Fishing Guide.
I would love to take you fishing.

I haven't always been a Lake Michigan Fishing Guide, I started out like many of you by fishing with my Dad. He instilled the love of the Great Outdoors in both my brother and me. As I got older and more experienced I began to realize that there were many different varieties of fish worth pursuing. Almost nowhere else on earth are so many freshwater gamefish species available in such close proximity as around the Great Lakes. Think of it like going to Baskin-Robbins: why limit oneself to vanilla when there are so many flavors and they are all good?! I take great pride and pleasure in getting people to experience new species and techniques. In fact, I’d rather see my guests catch fish than myself. I specialize in small groups and personal attention. I do not guarantee fish, sometimes they just will not cooperate. That’s fishing. But I will guarantee that I will give my best effort every time out to put fish in the boat. Give me a call if you want to have a unique, hands-on fishing experience.

Fishing for whitefish this weekend was really slow for most. Lonney Goman and his team of crack guides from Trophy Ice Fish pulled off a near flawless ‘Whitefish Weekend’ event that was incredibly complicated and well orchestrated. He even prepared a wonderful fried whitefish lunch for at least 60 clients.

It is always tricky to detect whitefish bites in 70 FOW and I am sure we missed a lot of strikes but there were very few 10 fish limits to be had by anyone. We ended up with 8 for two days of trying. That’s fishing for ya. This time the bear got us. But we still had a great time telling stories, laughing, and enjoying each others’ company between bites. We even fished some holes outside the shack when the weather allowed and pulled a couple.

We enjoyed excellent accommodations like a warm shanty, top notch fishing equipment, and attentive instruction from our guide Aaron. Our rooms at Motel 57 in Sturgeon Bay were newly remodeled and were quite comfortable.

Lonney and Barb Goman run a first class fishing operation for both ice and open water. They take care of all the details that make for a great experience. Try as they did, sometimes they just don’t bite.

This most recent blizzard is cutting into my prime fishing time. I had planned on fishing for walleye and steelhead this weekend on the St. Joe. The jumbo lake-run walleyes are in pre-spawn mode. In a week or so, the big females will go off the bite as they prepare to spawn. Some late winter-run steelies are still trickling into the river along with some early spring run fish. Some steelies are already on their beds but the major spring push is still a few weeks away.

Unfortunately (or fortunately?) I will be on Green Bay out of Sturgeon Bay fishing for whitefish next weekend and the following weekend is the “Fish On” Portage Outdoor Show where I will be presenting “Walleye and Sauger Fishing on the Illinois River” in an effort to stir interest and perhaps book a few charters. So it will be a few weeks before I can get back out to the Joe.

Spring really is just around the corner folks, trust me. All this snow will be gone soon and some of the best fishing of the year will be coming up to replace it.

The weather forecast has sabotaged my intention to spend this weekend fishing for walleye and steelhead on the St. Joe River. A significant snow event coupled with a lake effect boost makes for hazardous travel, especially when towing a boat. Will find other, ‘more constructive’ activities.

On the bright side, my tournament partner Paul and his neighbor are planning on joining me next weekend (weather permitting).
