Chartered Fishing Guide

Tel: 570-250-1147


Most fishing is done from my custom made 21 foot Bayrunner SeaArk Jet boat with a 250 HP Mercury Optimax motor to make your day’s fishing comfortable and successful. I can take two people at a time and sometimes three if they are small on the boat.

Quality Lures

Rods and reels if needed. Mine are all custom made by “Big Dady Rods”
Sorry; If my Rods or Reels are broken or lost by you I must charge you a $80.00 replacement fee for the rod and $30.00 replacement fee for the reel. They cost me at least 2 or 3 times that. .

*Some people like lunch provided so they have one less thing to think about, some would rather bring their own. To keep the cost of your charter down, I can’t see raising my prices to include a lunch that some may not want so I will provide an option lunch at a price of $12.00 per person. Each lunch will include two sandwiches, two sodas or waters,one fruit, chips and desert. We would go over your sandwich options before the charter.

Suggested Rods & Line

I suggest each angler have at least two rods, one for jigs, and a heavier one for cranks and spinners.

Although any rod or line will work, to have the most fun and success, I suggest you bring a light to medium spinning or casting rod capable of casting a 1/8oz. jig. Your line should be no more than 1 year old in 8 to 10lb. test, moss green or clear color. I suggest you use 8 to 10lb. test when we use top water plugs or crank baits, with a medium rod.I personally use 10lb Stren Magnathin for my spinning reels and 14lb green Suffix for my casting reels.

All of my customer rods are spinning rods, if you choose to use something else you must bring it such as baitcasters or push button reels.

If you bring line less than 8lb test, please bring your own lures. I don’t charge for lost lures and I’d like to keep them for awhile to keep your charter cost down. Remember, I have quality rods and reels for you to use if needed.
