About Guide Service Rates
I have some of the lowest rates of any full-time guide and can accommodate 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!

Book your trip today!
Trip hours vary by season, but typically trips are about a half day. In warmer months, the bite dies off by midday, so sunrise to midday. In winter, we'll stay out longer (until early to mid afternoon), simply because the bite is slower and the fish activity is better throughout the day. Regardless of the time of year, if the bite is really good, we'll stay out longer if you like.
About Booking Dates
Due to weather and unforeseen circumstances, I can't post my availability calendar online. Sometimes I have immediate availability, sometimes I'm booked two months out. So,once I confirm payment, I'll contact you and we'll talk about reserving a date that works for both of us. If you'd feel more comfortable, you can call me at 706-218-6609 and we'll discuss reserving a date before you make a payment here. Thanks again!

Now Taking Deposits - $100
As of January 2014, I am now requiring $100 deposits for booking. You can settle up the balance in person on the day of the trip. You can easily make a deposit payment by selecting "Guests: Deposit $100" from the drop-down box at the top of this page. Deposits are non-refundable and must be made at least 7 days prior to your trip date. Please contact me at 706-218-6609 for "last minute" booking options.
Add Live Bait - $25
Using live bait is an added expense, and we might run through two or three dozen baitfish in a day. This expense adds up over time, and I have no choice but to add a surcharge for trips that use bait. Most striper trips will include live bait. If you don't know whether or not to add this option (above), call me at 706-218-6609 and I'll let you know.
About Paying via PayPal
I use PayPal as my online credit card processor, but you DO NOT have to have a PayPal account in order to check out here. Once you go to check out, you will be redirected to PayPal's payment page where you can checkout with your PayPal account, OR if you want to check out without a PayPal account, look for the link below at the bottom of the page.
Sonar Trips in Your Boat
I offer sonar instructional trips in YOUR boat for only $200 per person. This is a great way to cut the learning curve and start getting your money's worth out of your electronics. We can cover 2D sonar, Side Imaging, cartography, on-water strategy, or whatever you feel that you need to improve upon as an angler. This is one-on-one instruction to help you become a better angler.
I'm one of the VERY few members of Humminbird's Professional Guide Staff and have a direct line to their electronics experts. However, I can help you no matter what brand of electronics you have.
