Reservation Fee and Trip Policy
Dock Pick-up Convenience Option
Many customers staying at the lake or have residence on the water enjoy being picked up at their private docks. Weather permitting, water levels and location of where we are catching fish will determine the possibility and final decision on pick up location. There is a $50 dock convenience pick up fee for those customers who prefer being picked up at their private dock.

Weather: You and your group are our #1 priority. Your safety is always considered before every trip. We will NOT run trips under any dangerous conditions like extreme high winds or lightning & storms. We DO NOT cancel or reschedule trips because of the weatherman’s “forecast”. Too many times they “predict” certain weather and it does not come. Most of the time we can operate around the weather either by delaying the trip a little or fishing in more protected areas. Our experienced and professional guides will let you know if there is bad weather to expect. If the guide recommends that the trip be rescheduled at any time due to Mother Nature, then your reservation fee WILL remain on your account and will be applied to your new trip date.
Cancellations due to bad weather on single boat trips are to be determined by the guide at the trip departure site on the date of the trip. In this case, no monies will be paid by client. Any reservation fee will be moved to another date.
Cancellations made 10 days or more prior to trip date can be rescheduled and reservation fee will be applied to new trip date.
Cancellations made less than 10 days prior can be rescheduled but reservation fee will be forfeited.
NO SHOWS will be charged a maximum boat charge.
If you cancel a trip that means I have turned down other paying customers for that date. Guiding is how we make a living; we cannot afford to lose our income due to cancellations.

With your reservation fee we are guaranteeing you the fishing trip, professional guide, and necessary equipment for that specific date and time. Also, with your reservation fee you are guaranteeing us you will be on time for your scheduled trip and prepared to pay for the services we have promised to provide. We have reserved your private chartered guided boat and reserved your specific time for your group. This usually means that we HAVE turned down other trips for your specific date and time because you booked it first with your reservation fee.
