The Finest Fishing Experience
I will strive to locate fish for you to catch and guide you throughout the day to teach and or show you techniques to make you a better fisherman
A Unique Adventure
There is more to fishing than just casting a lure out there to catch a fish. From many years of experience I analyze fish migrations and seasonal patterns from year to year. As you are on your trip with me I will share this knowledge and teach you about the species we are targeting and how weather patterns affect predator fish and the baitfish they feed on.
I use all artificial techniques for Bass, Stripers, and Crappie. Depending on the time of year we could be fishing in depths of 2 to 40 plus feet of water. Bait casting tackle is my preferred choice of tackle, but will utilize spinning tackle when applicable.
crankbaits, spinnerbaits, swimbaits, jerk baits, jigs, soft plastics, top water, Alabama rigs most fishing is done in the daytime but i will do night fishing upon request in the warm months. 3-35ft depths
Jerk baits, Soft plastic jigs, Alabama rigs, top water, spoons, bucktails 5-60ft depths. Best times are early morning and evening and night fishing in warmer months upon request
small soft plastic jigs, in depths of 8-40ft depending on the time of year and all fishing is during the daytime
Bass - Anytime of year is good but the colder months are best when searching for a trophy fish
Stripers - Most of the year you can catch these nomadic fish species, colder months are the best time to pursue a trophy fish as well
Crappie - Can be caught just about anytime of year and i use mostly artificial lures
