Payable Guide Service LLC – 22'

If you’re looking for a fun family outing and fishing is your favorite hobby, then Payable Guide Service might be the charter for you! The crew knows the rivers, tributaries, and lakes in the Branson area very well, and they’ll take you to the best bite of the day.

The boat, and your ride for the day, is a 22’ Wooldridge, fitted with a 115 HP Yamaha engine and an 8 HP trolling motor. The vessel is spacious enough to sit up to 6 anglers. What’s more, all anglers on the boat can fish at the same time. There’s a private toilet on board, and a part of the boat is covered, to protect you from the sun or rain, depending on the time of the year.

The crew provides all the necessary fishing equipment for the trip, but if you’d like to do some fly fishing, you should bring your own gear. After the trip, your guide will clean and fillet your catch for you, so that you can cook and serve it as soon as you’re back in your kitchen.

But what is on your to-catch list? The waters of the area are teeming with a variety of freshwater game fish, and most of them will give a proper fight before you get them into the boat. Different species of Bass are the most popular catch, as well as Walleye, Yellow Perch, and Crappie. Sizeable Brown and Rainbow Trout are also on the menu. If there’s a particular species you’d like to target, your guide will make it happen.

The crew loves having kids on board, so Payable Guide Service is a great option when you want to show your little ones just how fun fishing can be. It’s up to you to bring a fishing license, appropriate clothing, drinks, and food, and the fishing fun can begin!
