Every Trip requires a $100 deposit regardless if you have fished with us in the past or not. We have a strict policy to only hold fishing dates with paid deposits. During the spring we turn down more than 40 customer's a year do the high demand. 

What happens if I need to cancel a trip?
  • Cancelation 16 or more days, full refund 
  • On and within the 15 days deposit can be-used for smallmouth trip.
  • Deposits can take up 60 days for returns.
We are very fair and honest and we want you to go fishing and catch fish
 but I need to protect my business and the available slots, if I book the slot I will return your deposit. . 

What happens if it rains?
  • Most likely we are fishing
  • We will not fish in torrential rain
  • We will not fish in lighting storms
What happens if there maybe a lighting storm?
  • It is at the captain's discretion to either fish or postpone the trip
  • In the spring and summer storms move through quickly and we can be fishing with little interruption
  • After and during rain can be the best fishing 
What happens if the river is blown out from rain?
  • If the river is muddy or blown out the captain will decide to fish or postpone
  • A plugging trip can turn into a bait trip
  • A shad trip can turn into a striper trip using bait
  • A spring trip and turn into a summer trip
What happens if I book a striper trip and its postpone and the run is over?
  • We can move up the river to find stripers
  • We can fish for smallmouth, walleyes, catfish, etc
  • You are booking a fishing trip so you need to be flexible with species if the striper run is over
