First Time Booking with Us?

We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only catch fish, but show you a great time on the water, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.

Just show your guide your QR code on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to go fishing. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!

In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a full refund. Your safety is our top concern.
