All bass fishing trips start at your desired time, I will recommend a time due to the recent fishing and what times of the day have been best. We usually fish for an 8 hour day and have no problems fishing a bit longer or shorter if 8 hours is too long of a day for you. All bass must be released, No exceptions! We will keep Walleye as long as they fit in the slot limits. Expect to fish with the best equipment all boats are outfitted with GLX G-LOOMIS Rods, And Shimano Reels. All tackle Is provide you are welcome to bring you favorite tackle or rods If you wish. We will have coolers with Ice on the boat with plenty to drink

What you should bring

Rain Gear if in the spring. We don't get much rain in the summer. Wear a hat to keep the hot sun off of your face, and bring sun/uv protection. The temperature in the summer averages in the high eighties to mid nineties. Bring a sack lunch and favorite snacks . And bring your camera, you are going to want it for some great KODAK moments!

Steelhead trips will start at safe light to run a boat. As always these fish like the AM so we want to get you the most action as possible. We also do afternoon trips for those that don’t rise early. We will fish an 8hr day or until all limits are filled. We release All Native Steelhead! We will take photos for you and E-Mail them if you forgot your camera. We will provide all tackle and bait we will be fishing G-Loomis 1082s rods and be free-drifting eggs. We usually stop on the beach around lunch for a barbecue and go right back to fishing. We can skip that if you are having too much fun to stop.

What you should Bring? Rain Gear and Snacks!
