Our trips are tailored to the individual client based upon the package selected. Of course you can pursue more than one species in one outing, and we offer special spring trophy bass trips and Hat Trick trips (bass, striper and crappie). We welcome children. Did you know around 60% of our business is father and sons?
We meet at High Point Marina and clients do not pay for parking. We can recommend lodging at The Lighthouse Inn (540.895-5249 or at www.lakeannacondo.com) If you want a rental home, try www.docksiderealty.com.
Our rigs are all 20' or longer and our guides punctual and personable. They work to please you and realize your fishing goals.
When you fish with me out of my boat, I like to concentrate on the use of lures for bass, stripers and crappie. However, I do run bait at times for striper and certainly employ small minnows when crappie fishing. John Hutchins and Chris Craft run bass boats and will target bass, striper or crappie depending on the season. When you fish with John Barlow or Shawn Blankenship out of their center consoles, these are mostly live bait striper trips using native baitfish like herring or shad they collect generally BEFORE you get in the boat. There may be times when casting lures is productive on these trips, too. Please note the center console rates below. Due to varying fuel costs we are adjusting our rates from time to time.
