The good thing about Captain Tom is that you can fish, then take a break for a soda and âthe best Angus burgers you can find,â he says. Again, after tasting the burgers, he is telling the truth.
Captain Tom, who fished 186 people at a time, most on the float, but some on a rock face that you can walk to from the float, has what he calls “a considerable investment” in the float. , which he bought from his brother-in-law, then quickly dismantled and built again.
It is quite the place, and worth a visit. He says once you do, you’ll come back.
âThere aren’t a lot of people who have known the float who haven’t been loyal customers,â said Captain Tom. âWe don’t even call them clients. We consider everyone to be family. We also have a lot of people calling for the peace of the river. And, there is a chance to catch a record fish.
We didn’t break any records with our catches, but Captain Tom and his daughter-in-law Lisa Marie Tischer, who works alongside him, made it the best $ 20 I’ve spent in a long, long time. Yes, $ 20 entitles you to a pontoon ride to and from the landing near the Dresbach Visitor Center and an all-day spot on the float (7 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
And yes, we will be back. Guaranteed.
WHITETAIL STORIES: With the Wisconsin archery and crossbow seasons opening for whitetail deer on September 18, there are bound to be some tongue wagging tails. Drop me a line and send me a picture of your big money at [email protected] and it might end up being a Thursday column. I have been hunting for 45 years and writing for over 40 years, and I never tire of hearing a good deer story.
