I planned on fishing all day and night. When the last boat went in I discovered I was the only guy staying. Great fishing all night. Took about a 1-2 hour nap in my quarters, and went right back to fishing. Cant wait to go again.

We love fishing and decided to spend our Anniversary weekend on the Great Alma Fishing Float! We spent nearly the entire 12 hours out there and caught some great fish. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing day and we look really forward to coming back! The guys who own the float will fillet your fish for a very small... More

The attendants were so helpful, making our fishing experience the best it could be. They have everything there, tackle, bait, rods and all the equipment you need to catch great fish and a very reasonable rate.

If your looking for good fishing for a variety of fresh water fish you will love the experience of fishing off the Alma fishing float in Alma, Wisconsin. There is never a dull moment on this float on one of the most under utilized fishing spots in the Midwest, the upper Mississippi River. If your expecting a 5 star experience,... More

If you are very used to fishing or are new to it, you will still enjoy your time on the float. If you expect something clean and professional or commercialized then you're in the wrong place. I grew up fishing and it felt like I was a little kid again. We needed help a few times and everyone was helpful.... More

I've been out on the float several times now and have always had a great time! People are friendly, the fish are usually biting (we caught sunfish, walleye, sauger and a few carp). I love the pontoon ride shuttle service!

We went down to the dock and put the flag up, within about 5 minutes a boat came and got us. We stayed all day and caught tons of fish. Cleaned them right on the Float. Everyone was very nice and made you feel very welcome.

This float is awesome for catching fish. I took my son out for the day and I caught 3 northern! One was a 26 inch/ 51/2 pounder. We really enjoyed the sense of community on the float. Someone was always running for a net or offering help in removing hooks. They will even fillet northerns for a buck or two... More

A great way to spend the day fishing plus we had breakfast on the float. The locals were very welcoming and we were happy to give them the fish we caught since we were on vacation and didn't have any plans to keep them.
