Getting a Good Catfish Fishing Guide

A good catfish fishing guide will provide gear for you to use, but this depends on the particular guide. You may not need to borrow their gear, but sometimes when you fish with a guide, they’ll turn you on to some nifty, new gadget that you’ve never used before. Or, your fishing guide may take you out on a boat that is straight out of your dreams. That could make the couple hundred dollars a day well worth it!

How To Prepare For Your Fishing Trip

What you need to bring on your fishing trip will vary widely depending on what kind of trip it is. For example, if you will be staying overnight somewhere, you’ll have to prepare for that. In some cases, all expenses will not be covered by the fee for the guide, so you will need to bring some money. Also, different guides provide different gear and materials. Always check first with your guide to see what you need to bring.

Also, tell your guide all about your fishing skills and experience. Now is not the time for fishing stories! Be honest about your fishing ability and this will help them plan your trip.

Going out on the water with a good fishing guide can get you tons of catfish. Even better, you can learn something along the way, no matter how many years you’ve been angling.
