The attendants were so helpful, making our fishing experience the best it could be. They have everything there, tackle, bait, rods and all the equipment you need to catch great fish and a very reasonable rate.

I've been out on the float several times now and have always had a great time! People are friendly, the fish are usually biting (we caught sunfish, walleye, sauger and a few carp). I love the pontoon ride shuttle service!
