FISHING GUIDE TEAM

The Mitchell’s Guide Service Staff is an extremely experienced staff of top notch anglers, and we are also a top notch group of people. We all take great pride in not only putting our customers on the best available fishing but we enjoy teaching our clientele how to catch them.

 

From choosing the proper presentation to lure selection, boat control, understanding electronics, and seasonal fish movements are just a sampling of the curriculum that we teach every day.  We take your fishing experience with us very serious. We can’t guarantee the sun will shine but we can guarantee you will have a personable guide who is patient and will work hard to ensure your fishing trip is pleasurable and productive.
