Guide Service Rates
I have some of the lowest rates of any full-time guide and can accomodate up to 5 guests in my Skiff, and if you have more than 5, give me a call anyway, as I have a network of other guides that can help staff the trip. I offer great options for corporate trips!
|Trip Rate (up to 8.5 hrs)||$300||$350||$400||$450|
|Sonar Instructional (my boat or your boat)||$200||-NA-||-NA-||-NA-|
Types of Trips
You could literally run 30 trips with me each year and do 30 different things. The bite is always changing, and there are many, many ways to catch them. Sometimes we use live bait, fish at night, fish topwater or deep, move around and search, or camp in a pocket. It all depends on what the fish are doing and what you want to do. And if you're a fishing rookie---no problem. I have many clients each year that have never held a fishing rod, and they have a ball! Tournament angler?---no problem either. The more skilled you are, the more we can do to target monster Carters spots, and I help many guys each year get in the money.
Remember, I offer Sonar/Side Imaging trips in YOUR boat for only $200. This is a great way to cut the learning curve and start getting your $$$ worth out of your sonar unit. I'm one of the VERY few guides in the U.S. on Humminbird's Professional Guide Staff!
I take cash or check at the end of the trip, or you can make your payment online by clicking the "PayPal" button in the right sidebar under "Make payments online!". However, all ONLINE payments must be made at least 5 days in advance of the scheduled trip. (multiple day bookings require a $100 deposit) Tips are customary but not required.
About Keeping Fish...
SPOTTED BASS ARE CATCH & RELEASE, ONLY! However we do make exceptions for kids mounting their first trophy fish. This policy is strictly enforced as a conservation measure to help protect our incredible fishery. Want to take fish home?--Striper, hybrids, panfish, and catfish are great to eat and may be taken home up to legal limits. Please visit the Georgia DNR's web site for creel limits.
Giving the gift of a fishing trip is an awesome gift, and I do many of these trips each year. It is a great way for friends and family to get out on the water and spend some special time with each other making memories. They are also a great option as a complimentary gift for corporate sponsors or that special client you might want to say "thanks" to. Do I offer gift certificates? You bet I do! Follow this link to order one.
I do not post my schedule online because I often need to move trips based on weather, changing schedules, or "the forces that be". The best way to book a trip immediately is to call my cell phone at 706-218-6609. We can then talk about available dates, what the bite is doing, and address any questions you might have. I try not to answer the phone during trips, so if you don't get in touch with on my phone, please leave a voice-mail message, OR you can send a booking request to me via this web site. Please follow this link to send a booking request.
