Northwoods Bass Fishing


Northern Wisconsin trophy smallmouth bass fishing adventures and resources on the world class premier fishing waters surrounding Minocqua, Wisconsin.

For over the last decade, Andrew Ragas has been on a mission to obsessively explore the waters surrounding the Minocqua lakeland region, and to showcase Wisconsin’s Northwoods as a premier destination for world-class smallmouth bass fishing. With our trophy regulated and well-managed inland lakes now populated with more big fish than ever before, we invite you join us on our big fish adventure of catching, conserving, and chronicling the trophy smallmouth bass of Northern Wisconsin.

As a disclaimer and professional courtesy to fellow fishing colleagues, this isn’t like any ordinary guide service. We operate and think differently by focusing on one single species, with emphasis on seminar styled learning and angling approach. So there is no reason to argue over competition. We are the only Wisconsin bass fishing guide service and information resource of its kind, and we don’t have to rely on our knack for big bass to earn a living.

Residing in Minocqua, Wisconsin, and calling the lakes and reservoirs of Vilas, Oneida, Iron and Forest Counties our home waters, we are Northern Wisconsin’s number-1 resource for world-class smallmouth bass fishing information, education, entertainment, conservation, and angling instruction.
