Owned and operated by Licensed Guide and tournament angler, Collin Schlicht. Starting tournament fishing at just a teenager Collin has placed high and won many tournaments for Musky, Walleye, and Bass. Collin competes on the Professional Musky Tournament Trail. In 2020, he finished 16th over the season earning himself a spot in the World Championship at Cave Run Lake, KY.
Growing up on the Wisconsin River, Pewaukee Lake and Okauchee Lake, Collin has spent his whole life fishing the many waters of Wisconsin. Wisconsin provides many opportunities for the experienced angler to cash in on both incredible action and trophy fish! With Collin you’ll learn bodies of water, how to locate and target certain species, and techniques that flat out catch fish.
Whether you’re looking to keep the rods bent, have a leisurely day on the water with friends or family,
or target trophy caliber fish, Collin can provide a memorable outing while sharing knowledge and
experience to take with you.

I have been fortunate enough to fish my entire life all around the country for all different species. I have fished with a handful of different guide services as well. Collin is among the best I have fished with. He is friendly, extremely knowledgeable for a variety of different species, and has vast knowledge of numerous bodies of water across the state of Wisconsin. He will put you on fish and most importantly, you will have a great time in the boat with him. Whether you’d like to learn a new body of water, or get the kids out on some steady action, he has you covered. No matter what level of fisherman or woman you are, I highly recommend Hardcore Hookin Guide service.
Collin is the best! He teaches you what to do, what to look for and how to handle certain situations when you book a trip with him. He will make you a better fisherman! I can tell you that from experience. 2021 was my best year of fishing. I went on 3 trips with him in 2021. 2 Muskie trips on different lakes and a walleye trip on the Wisconsin River in the beginning of December. We caught Muskie on both trips and just killed the walleye in December. Collin is a pro and does not stop until he gets you on fish. He is a young man but has has decades of experience and it shows. He knows the southern Wisconsin lakes like the back of his hand. He is such a fishing maniac that even when he does not have a trip planned he is out fishing. This guy lives to fish! He has given me memories that will last a lifetime!! Looking forward to a couple more trips in 2022.
“Man where do I start for this. Collin did it all. He explained the lakes that were were going to go to and he put us on fish. My friend Jared and I got lucky, well not really, and had the hottest days of summer when Collin took us out. He still was able to help us put Pike on the boat, my first ever. He then took us to a lake were he guaranteed numbers. He taught us a new fishing trick to catch the fish as well. Boy did we catch. It was legit every other cast we pulled in a bass, decent size might I add. We ended that day with 50+ fish between my friend and I. I would fully recommend Collin as a guide. Not only are you going out there for him to help bend the rods but you are going out there and WILL learn something new. He will not disappoint and you will land fish, rather it is bass, walleye, pike, musky, or blue gills you will have fish. ”
“Simply put the best guide service I’ve ever used! Collin is extremely knowledgeable, and always get my wife and I on huge trophy fish, or loads of good fun fish whichever we request. Collin knows how to catch fish, but what really impressed me was his ability to teach me the "how's and whys", which in my experience distinguishes a fishing guide from a GREAT fishing guide. We are also planning Musky and walleye trips this summer with our son! Overall we couldn’t be happier with the guide service and professionalism. ”
“A lot of people love to fish. I on the other hand love to CATCH fish! I’ve done a lot of fishing over the years and have fished with many different people. With that said, I’ve never caught more or bigger fish more consistently then I have with Collin Schlicht. It doesn’t really matter WHAT you’re fishing for or WHERE you’re fishing, Collin’s knowledge of patterns, behavior, presentation and his ability to just “find what works” has always led to consistent success. When you couple this knowledge and skill set with his hardcore work ethic he’s just a fish catching machine. I guess that’s the only way to explain it. MOST of my best memories of fishing have been while with Collin or when Collin has taken my kids out.If you’re thinking about hiring a guide you cannot go wrong with Collin Schlicht. Knowledgeable, hardworking and experienced, you’ll get results.”
“Simply put the best guide service I’ve ever used! Collin is extremely knowledgeable, and always get my wife and I on huge trophy fish, or loads of good fun fish whichever we request. So far we have done two King Salmon trips, and two trips for trophy Brown Trout. We are also planning Musky and walleye trips this summer with our son! Overall we couldn’t be happier with the guide service and professionalism.”
