Bassinwithboginski

If you are a novice angler or a tournament angler who’s new to the area and wants to learn the local waters, Bassinwithboginski has you covered. Maybe you just want to teach your kids and create some great memories with them in the outdoors. Captain James Bogin can help you with all of that. If you’re looking to catch numbers for that once in a lifetime trophy, this is the charter for you!

The boat you’ll be fishing aboard is a 20’ Phoenix bass boat. She can carry up to 3 anglers, and is equipped with a GPS and fishfinder unit to track down big fish in no time!

The vessel has all the necessary safety equipment, letting you and or family or friends all fish in comfort and safety. She also has a livewell to keep your bait fighting fresh as you search the local lakes for fish to feed them to.

You will visit a variety of spots in this part of California to fish for Largemouth, Smallmouth, and Striped Bass. This is some of the best freshwater action in the state, so get ready to jump aboard and reel in some real hard-fighters.

Capt. James will provide you with all the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle for the trip ahead. All you need to do is come on down with a valid freshwater fishing license and you’re all set for a day to remember!
