Charlie Hinck - Charlie Hinck's Guide Service - Wisconsin
Charlie started fishing when he was around 2 or 3 and fished full days with his dad by the time he was 8 or 9. Growing up in Hager City, Wisconsin gave him the opportunity to fish the skinny waters as well as the big water of the Mississippi River. Charlie considers himself a ‘Multi-species’ angler and changes his quarry as seasons and conditions changes.
Charlie’s guide service offers ice fishing for panfish and walleye in the West Central portion of Wisconsin and ice fishing for walleye on the Mississippi River and its tributaries in the Hager City area. Other anglers keep an eye on Charlie to find out his secrets to success. He uses different techniques than what others use and will make small changes as needed to entice a bite. The best way to learn his secrets is to book a trip with him.
Charlie logs in a great deal of reconnaissance prior to taking a client out. This, and his patience to make his clients comfortable, gives them the best fishing opportunity. Charlie is passionate about fishing and like us, he is eager to learn and experiment with new techniques to improve his success.
