Fishing Guide Trip Rates and Information

We try to keep our guide trip rates as low as possible for our clients, but fuel and tackle expenses have increased to the point where rates have had to increase this year. We continuously strive to provide a great value!

2024 Fishing guide trip rates for one to two people:

Half day (4 hours) fishing guide – $375

3/4 day (6 hours) fishing guide – $450

Full day (8 hours) fishing guide – $550

For each addition person, add $75

(We no longer take credit cards.)

We furnish rods, reels, bait, and life jackets. You will want to bring:

  • You will need a Missouri Fishing License, depending on your age. Walmart or other local stores sell Fishing Licenses. You can also purchase them online at For more information about Missouri fishing licenses, you can call 1-800-392-4115.
  • Proper clothing. Rain gear and/or jackets are recommended in case of inclement weather.
  • Sunscreen
  • Refreshments, and lunch if desired. (Alcohol is not allowed on the boat.)

Cancellation – Please understand that we are holding your reserved date especially for you. If it is absolutely necessary to cancel, please give us the courtesy of cancelling at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled trip.

Inclement weather – Except in the case of severe weather, we will go fishing, so bring your raingear or cold weather gear if necessary. In cases of thunderstorms or extremely high winds I will contact you to make other arrangements.

You will be fishing on a very nice Ranger 21-foot bass boat.
