Susquehanna Smallmouth Bass are very eager to chase a moving bait not usually requiring much finesse fishing. We use only the finest equipment from Lews_fishing. We use Spinnerbaits from Sick Custom Baits. Crankbaits, Topwater and Stick baits from Rapala. Our bottom baits include TackleHd, OnTheSpotBaits along with others from time to time. Come and spend a day on the water with us and we will show you how to work these quality baits.
After a long cold winter as soon as the water begins to warm the Susquehanna Catfish go on a feeding frenzy. This is one of the best catfish bites of the year. This is also the time to catch some of the biggest of the season. Fishing for these River Monsters this time of the year is pretty straight forward we will fish feeding areas near their wintering holes. when it comes to bait cut bait seems to do the trick but prepared baits also work at times. There is also a good amount of Flatheads in these parts of the River so a true giant is possible. These trips are fun for all ages just dress warm. These trips will run 4 to 5 hours all rods reels and bait will be provided. Give me a call and try it you will remember this adventure for years to come.
We also offer Lake fishing on several quality Lakes. One of the semi-private lakes we fish have produced Largemouth up to 7 pounds with nonstop Pickerel and Calico action. Let me know if you would like to try one of these very good waterway.

I am a lifelong resident of NEPA and has been fishing over 50 year. After spending many years on the Bass Tournament Trails I moved to guiding on the Susquehanna River and surrounding Pocono lake. I am a full time guide and spend about 250 days a year on the water. I am very knowledgeable on the latest techniques and lures. I will show you the latest techniques and review the basics to efficiently utilize your time. I understand not everyone wants to throw crankbaits or jerkbaits all day there are usually several patterns going on so I can usually accommodate other techniques you would rather try. l also have several other guides available so larger groups requiring more than one boat are welcome. All skill levels are also welcome. We will make whatever adjustments needed to make your trip a enjoyable and memorable experience.

Instructional Bass Fishing Trips
Instructional trips will focus more on teaching everything there is to know about a particular technique, fish habits, strategies, and or whatever you want to hone your skills on! We will talk about the situations or conditions you might face and how the fish will react to the baits your are interested in learning about. These trips will usually yield less fish but are a bargain with the knowledge gained. contact me for pricing and package.
Many people ask me how to run a set of rapids or what side of the river to run. Rather then try to remember what someone told you how to run a section of river, book a Instructional session with me I will show you how to read the water so you can safely navigate any stretch of river. This is a
priceless service for new jet boaters. This will cut years off your learning curve. Contact me on pricing.
