A good fishing guide will save you time and money! You can learn more in a single day with a good guide than you can spending an entire week fishing by trial and error. They tell you about the right baits to buy instead of wasting money chasing the local dock talk. Even big name national professionals rely on a guide when they need to quickly learn a new body of water. The following list of guides is provided as a convenience to your fishing. We suggest that you ask any guide for a couple of references so you can check them out before you book a trip. And, make sure any guide you hire is properly licensed, bonded and insured.
