We charter fishing trips, on the North Branch of the Susquehanna River, from Ice out usually about March 15th to Ice In,usually about Dec.15th, 7 days a week, weather and water permitting.
If you're interested in fishing where most of the public can't get to and you're a little on the adventurous side, join me on my 21ft SeaArk Bayrunner jet boat with a 250HP Mercury Pro Optimax motor. I can take up to 3 people at a time and it's for the entire day, usually between 6 to 10 hours,your choice. You'll want your camera because in the approximate 10 miles that we'll cover, you'll see an abundance of scenery and wildlife.Getting in and out of the boat there is a good chance of getting your feet wet so bring old sneakers or sandals in hot weather and hip or knee boots in cold weather.I also have 3hr and 4hr evening trips for those who don't have the time or would prefer a shorter trip.
Standard 6hr day charter for up to two people the rate is $215.00 for the boat starting in the water no later than 7:30AM to be off the water no later than 1:30PM

Package #1 Full 7 to 8hr day on the river for one or two adults:
This package includes everything from start to finish depending on your current knowledge of fishing, from how to use a spinning rod (which I will provide) and the knots I use to reading the river and what lures to use under certain conditions and how to fish them correctly.
