Capn’ Lee Says... “The Grand Illusion Fishing Team will make your fishing trip aboard our deluxe vessel, equipped with the latest in electronics equipment, fish locating gear, and the best fishing tackle available, a memorable one.”
Here are some answers to the most common questions we’ve encountered.
Does the guide provide equipment/bait/food? The Grand Illusion is equipped with the finest navigation, safety and fishing equipment available. All tackle is provided. You are encouraged to bring your own beverage and food. Alcohol is allowed in moderation. Package trips include continental breakfast and soda & snack foods. Arrangements can be made to provide lunch aboard, if you wish.
Does the guide offer lodging? All of our packages include lodging and we would we would be happy to assist you in finding additional lodging if you need it.
Do I need a license? Yes, a Wisconsin Fishing license and Great Lakes Salmon Stamp are required or you can get a two-day fishing license. These are available at the dock or on the boat for $14. Many of our packages include licenses.
Do we fish in bad weather?  Fish like water, and it doesn't matter to them if it's wet topside. We fish in the rain, so bring foul weather gear. In the unlikely event that it's extremely rough on the lake, your deposit can be refunded or you may choose a later date and forward your deposit.
Is tipping appropriate?  We feel our extra effort warrants gratitude. The amount is totally up to the individual. 15-20% of the fishing charter is customary.
Is there anything else to do?  Make your trip an experience to remember. Back on land there are many attractions and events in Northeast Wisconsin. Visit wineries, museums, stores and shops, sand beaches, golf courses, casinos, historic sites, and more. Take in fairs, parades, Shanty Days, and more. We'll be happy to make reservations for you at local golf courses and restaurants.
