We use Schafer’s every summer for our kayaking and boating needs. It’s so easy to book online with them and they have everything ready to go when you arrive. They remember us every time!

I have been going to Schaefers for a couple years and love the great and friendly customer service. I would recommend them to anyone who are looking for very reasonable prices on kayaking, canoeing or fishing gear in the Onalaska area.

We caught bluegills, crappies and a 4lb largemouth 300 feet from landing. You can get to Mississippi River where you can catch walleye. Northern are caught on any channel in Lake Onalaska.
