The Guide is a technical poling skiff that is unparalleled in is abilities to handle rough water yet still being capable of accessing shallow waters other boats of its size cannot reach. The large casting deck provides ample fishing space, while the 6 inch draft and silent hull design allows you to approach shallow water gamefish without being detected.
This skiff offers us the ability to fish with fly, light tackle artificial lures, or bait all in the same day without switching boats.
It is one of few technical poling skiffs that is rated for up to 4 people.
Rates are for 1-2 people, add $50 for the third person.

With this boat we can customize any fishing trip to cater to your groups needs.

Cast & Blast
We offer Cast & Blast trips for those seeking a fishing and wingshooting adventure on the same day. Clapper Rails (Marsh Hens) are a webless migratory game bird found in along our salt marshes. They are a sporty bird and offer a liberal bag limit of 15 per birds per hunter. With the right tides, we can combine any fall fishing trip for tailing redfish or other gamefish into a Cast & Blast trip. Please contact us for more info.
