Starved Rock Guide Service

Operating out of Oglesby, Illinois, Starved Rock Guide Service invites you to spend an incredible day fishing with them and create unforgettable memories together. Their main goal is for their customers to have an exciting outdoor experience, catch as many trophies as they can, and become better anglers for their future fishing endeavors.

Join Captain Mike Hanson aboard his brand new 21’ performance Ranger boat, out on the water in 2018. It still has that new boat smell and comes equipped with the latest navigational and safety gear, twin 350 HP Verado engines, a wireless trolling motor, outriggers, and downriggers. You and up to three other anglers will also have access to the onboard live bait tank and an ice-box.

Captain Mike will take you to the hottest river, lake, and backcountry fisheries and it will usually take you 15-60 minutes to reach the most productive spots, depending on the seasonal migration patterns.

Depending on your preferences and the bite, your hit list will include Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Hybrid Striped Bass, Catfish, Crappie, and Sauger. You’ll get the chance to master your cast during the trip and learn new trolling, jigging, and bottom fishing hacks.

Kids 6 and older are also invited to join in the fun and learn a lot about fishing. The captain will take care of all the fishing gear, live bait, and lures. You just have to buy a valid fishing license before the trip and the rest will be history. It’s time to reach that personal best!

Captain Mike Hanson owns and operates Starved Rock Guide Service. He has been fishing in tournaments for 10 years and he is nationally ranked. He has won numerous awards but thinks it's now time to show what he learned! Capt. Mike likes fishing at veterans and kids' events. He thinks it's important to bring kids outside and for them to connect to nature.
