What to Expect…on your next fishing trip!
We hope this helps take some of the guess work out of your fishing trip for you.
When you call our toll free number, you get to talk to a knowledgeable guide……… not a booking service. We are there to answer any questions or uncertainties you may have, which could typically include travel plans and accommodations.
Once your questions have been answered and you have decided on a date, we immediately ask for your contact information and make your tentative reservation. We ask that you confirm your reservation with a deposit, either by credit card or check. The amount of the deposit varies with the amount of days and fishing packages chosen. We do not charge your credit card at this time; it is simply to verify the reservation. If customers are able to provide us with an email address, we will send trip confirmation information, including meeting location, directions and time. This information can also be faxed, text messaged to your cell phone or given to you over the phone. One thing is for certain, if you have a confirmed reservation to fish with us, we will be there. We are available to answer any questions as often as you need prior to your trip, anytime between 8am and 8pm EST or at any time via email.
On the day of your trip, you will be greeted by one of our courteous and professional guides at the pre-arranged location. (It could be at your hotel lobby, a local park’s ramp or at the local marina.) You will also at this time have the opportunity to discuss what kind or style of fishing you would like to experience. Your guide will recommend what bait and style of fishing has been working best over the last couple of days. This is also a great time to pickup your fishing license if you haven’t done so. Our boats have a built-on cooler complete with ice, awaiting your favorite beverage. Alcohol is also permitted.
After our greeting and meeting, we will then proceed to our fishing destination on the lake, where our guides will assist and advise you on how to best catch the fish. While on the water you can be assured that we will work very hard to produce fish for you. We are constantly striving to raise the standard by which other guide services are measured.
Once your trip is over, you will be taken back to the original meeting location, and at this time you will settle your bill for your trip in full, less any deposits. You can use your credit card or feel free to pay cash or check. Gratuity is not included in the trip, nor is it expected. Gratuity is something over and above payment which is earned. If you feel like you were not given the very best equipment and the very best effort on the part of your guide, please do not give gratuity. However, if you would like to show your gratitude to your guide, a good standard tip is usually 20% or higher. Again, this is entirely up to you and your party as to the amount, but please do not feel obligated in anyway.
If you have any other questions or concerns about what to expect, please feel free to contact us.
We look forward to talking and fishing with each and every one of you!
