Nothing else compares to a successful fishing trip’s tranquility, anticipation, and exhilaration. When you book your stay at Lakewoods Resorts on Lake Namakagon, you’re at one of the best fishing lakes in Wisconsin. We put together a checklist of steps to ensure you have a successful Wisconsin fishing trip this season.

Step 1 – Learn the Wisconsin Fishing Season Dates

You first need to figure out the Wisconsin fishing season dates for what you’re interested in fishing. Wisconsin fishing regulations can differ from fish type and for each lake. You can look at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources website for more information on the Wisconsin fishing season dates and regulations for the type of fishing you want to do.

Step 2 – Get Your Fishing License per Wisconsin Regulations

If you’re above the age of 15, you’ll need to get a Wisconsin fishing license. You can get your Wisconsin fishing license from a DNR Service Center or a Go Wild sales location. There is an option to purchase a fishing license for just one day if you only plan a one-day fishing trip. Wisconsin residents that are military members can get a discount, as well as first-time Wisconsin fishing license buyers.

Step 3 – Locate the Best Fishing Lakes in Wisconsin

When you stay at the Lakewoods Resort, you are on Namakagon Lake, one of the best fishing lakes in Wisconsin. This is an excellent fishing spot to catch Musky, Panfish, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, and Walleye. Make sure you read up on the Wisconsin fishing and boating regulations for Namakagon Lake before booking your boat and cabin rentals.

Step 4 – Gather All Your Fishing Gear

Now you’re ready to start gathering all the fishing equipment you need. If you’re unfamiliar with fishing equipment, check out this blog post from Scout Life that explains it well.
