Featured Angler Bill Kutka

Bill started fishing early on as a kid growing up in Chicago. He says that his first boat was an inner tube.  His passion for the outdoors and fishing has grown ever since, with over 50 years of fishing and boating experience. 

He started fishing the Hayward WI area back in the early 1980’s, so he has knowledge and experience and can get you on fish. It is all about the experience with Bill.  His love of the water and fishing will teach you techniques and provide you with boating and fishing equipment knowledge from firsthand use and experience. 

He is an accomplished Professional Walleye Tournament Angler for nearly three decades. Bill has qualified for championships and was named Sportsman of the Year in the In-Fisherman Professional Walleye Trail.

In 2022 the tournaments that he will compete in are the National Walleye Tour as a Pro and the Master’s Walleye Circuit.

Bill runs a guide service out of Hayward, WI.
