Captain Tim Hyvonen


Welcome to WiFinalnder Guide Service and Spawn Sac Sales.


I'm Captain Tim Hyvonen, owner/operator of WIFinlander Guide Service.  After serving in the United States Coast Guard, I decided to start guiding with spring steelhead as my area of expertise.  In 2016, I obtained my Captain's License and started running charters on Lake Michigan with a high level of success.   

In addition to running charters and guiding, I am an avid tournament fisherman and compete in many Lake Michigan tournaments such as Salmon-a-Rama and Brew City.  During the winter I travel between Minnesota, Wisconsin and Indiana competing in the North American Ice Fishing Circuit (NAIFC).
