Tackle, bait, fuel and bottled water is provided. A cooler is provided for your food or drink items.


You are welcome to bring your own tackle and baits should you prefer. I will have tackle appropriate to the type of fishing we will be doing. 


You will need to provide licenses, food, clothing for the weather we are likely to encounter. Be sure to bring sunscreen, sunglasses and hat, and any special items that might be required by any party member. Alcoholic beverages are not allowed.

Kentucky and Barkley Lakes can be extremely dangerous in high winds. If winds are predicted above 15 mph from north or south during the scheduled trip, we will not attempt to fish. I will attempt to give as much advance notice as possible. Deposits may be refunded or applied to a future trip.

I will gladly meet your party at any of the marinas/resorts on the north end of KY or Barkley Lakes.


Fish will be cleaned and packaged for your convenience at no extra charge to you.
