What is a guided fishing trip?

October 14, 2020

Guided fishing trips are a great way to expand your fishing experience. Whether you’ve been fishing for years or have never picked up a rod; a guided fishing trip on Green Bay with a local expert is a one-of-a-kind experience. Green Bay is a large body of water and booking a guided fishing trip can help with breaking down the areas you may want to fish. Generally there are several types of guided fishing trips:

  • Family or friends who want to go and have a good time and catch a few fish
  • A group of anglers who are in the area looking to fish and learn a couple spots to increase their success rates. Half day or full day fishing trips are available and based on your budget or how long you want to fish. The more time you spend on the water the more opportunity there is to learn new spots and catch more fish. 

What do you need for a guided fishing trip?

It’s important to bring layers if you’re planning to go out on Green Bay. Even on the warmest days you may notice drops in temperature. If you’re leaving the dock for your fishing trip early in the morning, you can’t rely just on the sun to keep you warm. At the same time, you’re not going to have a lot of shade out on our boat so you need to make sure you can take off outer layers if you need to. Wind & rain suits will protect you from spray and keep you warm on early morning starts. Fishing gloves will keep your hands protected from sunburn.  Sunscreen is a must, make sure to get a brand that protects from both UVA and UVB rays. Lip balm with sun protection will stop your lips from getting chapped out on the water. Hats with brims provide shade and decrease the risk of sun stroke. Polarized sunglasses will cut through the glare on the water to give you a better view of fish. Rain jackets and pants are essential if you come across bad weather when you’re on Green Bay. A water bottle to keep you hydrated and you won’t have to worry about leaks or spills. A waterproof bag is a good idea to bring along for your electronic items and important documents such as your driver’s license and fishing license. A camera or smartphone is essential for you to record your trophy catch.
