Ghosttails Fishing Guide Service

Fred Hirsch is the owner and originator of Ghosttails, widely known and used by many Musky and Pike anglers throughout North America and Europe.

Over the past 40 years Fred has been developing and testing his baits while fishing the Chippewa Flowage.

Fred’s love has always been fishing the “Big Chip” and has made Hayward Wisconsin his permanent residence. Call 715-634-1862 for available guide dates.

We practice Catch, Photo and Release!

Between handcrafting Ghosttails and fishing, Fred now offers clients his many years of experience on the Chip for  guided trips on prime locations as his schedule allows (limited availability so Book Early).
