Why Use A Pro Guide Service?

Learn the Lake

A guide will know the water and where to go fish. They can show you how to run the lake safely, the best and not so great places to cast out, and tips for specific areas. You will most likely catch more fish and improve your techniques.

Try Out New Equipment

A bonus of going out with a professional guide is the ability to tryout different top of the line baits and gear. This can save you a lot of money or help you decide on which one will work best for a season or water condition.

It’s Fun and Relaxing

A professional guide will do all the hard stuff and allow you to sit back, relax, and more importantly FISH! The guide can assist in a variety of task such as teaching or demonstrating knots, aiding in getting fish in the boat and off the hook, and maneuver the boat. Trips also include taking pictures so you will be able share your experiences with friends and family.
