FISHING TRIPS & EAGLE TOURS
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 and cigar smoking are not allowed.
Prior arrangements must be made for medical devices required by fishermen.
Kentucky and Barkley Lakes can be extremely dangerous in high winds. If winds are predicted above 15 mph 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.
Children in your group must be over the age of eight. This is a serious fishing venture. Most children under the age of eight will not enjoy the time we spend on the water.
I will gladly meet your party at any of the marinas/resorts on the north end of KY or Barkley Lakes with prior arrangements.
Cell phone use must be very limited with permission while on guided trips. Marking spots (waypoints) with electronic devices is strictly prohibited. Violation of this rule will forfeit trip with no refunds.
Fish will be cleaned and packaged for your convenience at no extra charge to you.

$100 per day, non-refundable deposit is required to book (exceptions can be made for weather events or situations out of my control).
I can accommodate up to 5 average size fishermen in my Excel Storm Cat 230. I can also accommodate up to 5 adults on eagle/wildlife tours.
I accept cash, major credit cards or personal checks for deposits. Payment in full is required PRIOR to starting the 1st day of a booking and can be made by cash, credit card, or PayPal.
