Trip Planning

To get the most out of your fishing excursion, careful planning is very important and that is where we come in. We are here with the boat and gear and with the professional fishing know-how to give you an enjoyable, worry free fishing adventure.

The Boat used for Penn Trips
We fish from durable shallow running aluminum bass boats with powerful jet drives. These rigs provides a stable, safe and comfortable experience.

When the water is warm, we can also provide a more active approach by doing a canoe/wading trip. Wading can be physically demanding and is not recommended for everyone.

We provide the boat, fishing rods, tackle, safety vests and, of course, help and training if needed from our professional guides.

You are to bring a valid fishing license, rubber soled or wading shoes, rain gear, sunglasses, a lunch or snacks, non-alcoholic beverages and your camera to chronicle the day's take.
