Bowfishing Starved Rock Guide Service
Located in Oglesby, Illinois, Bowfishing Starved Rock Guide Service calls all bowfishing enthusiasts to join them for an unforgettable fishing experience. Captain Mike Henson sees it as his main goal to get his guests excited about the outdoors and help them catch as many trophies as possible.
You’ll spend the trip fishing from the captain’s 2018 21’ performance Ranger boat, powered by twin 350 HP Verado outboards. It’s equipped with the latest navigation, communication, and fish-finding electronic systems, all the necessary safety equipment, and all the fishing gear you could possibly need. With enough room to accommodate up to 3 anglers, the boat will provide your group with everything necessary for a fun and productive trip.
The trip will take you exploring the richest backcountry fishing grounds the area has to offer. Lean on your captain’s knowledge to adjust to the migration patterns of the local fish. You’ll discover the hottest lake and river spots for the time of the year you decide to visit in.
The fishery is rich with a long list of species and, depending on the bite as well as your preference, you’ll be able to target local favorites like Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Catfish, Walleye, Crappie, Hybrid Striped Bass, and Sauger.
All of the trips feature exclusively bowfishing and the captain will rent you out all the necessary equipment for a $20 rental fee. Alternatively, you’re welcome to bring your own bows with you. You’ll also need to have a valid fishing license before you come aboard. Then you’ll be ready to get the trip on the way.
