What do you want for Christmas this year?

How did you get started guiding?
I used to work in real estate and lending, which gives you a bit of a flexible schedule. I started guiding part time after work and on weekends to cover the cost of owning a boat and tournament entry fees. Eventually it started growing with more word of mouth, I started getting repeat customers, my social media started getting me clients and it snowballed into making the decision to do it full time.
What makes you different from other guides?
Fishing is my passion, I don't guide to make a quick buck on the weekends, I do it because I'm obsessed with fishing and it allows me to be outside in nature all the time. I also love teaching people to fish and enjoy all the different kinds of people I meet doing it. Some of my best friends started off as paid clients.

Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
