Guided Fishing Trips

bigbassWhy invest in a guided fishing trip?

If you're like most bass anglers, you're in constant search for ways to catch more and bigger fish. We all are. We spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on rods, reels, and the latest and greatest baits. One thing you can't buy, that can't be overlooked is experience and time on the water. Fishing guides like me spend countless hours on the water each year, often fishing while the average angler is at work, racking up knowledge and experience. By investing in a fishing trip with an experienced guide, you're going to get a concentrated fishing trip packed full of the tips and "tricks" we use to locate and catch the fish you're after.

What's included:

  • Use of tournament-caliber equipment featuring Phenix rods and Abu Garcia reels
  • The hottest and most effective baits on the market today
  • Fish aboard a tournament loaded Ranger Z521 bass boat powered by a reliable Mercury 250 ProXS outboard and Lowrance Electronics
  • Snacks and water
  • My undivided attention

  • Valid and current California Fishing License (call if you need one, otherwise they can be purchased online)
