If you’re up for some fun and exciting river and lake fishing, Southern Sun Guides is the right place to go. Captain Chad Keeter welcomes you to Weldon, North Carolina and he’s eager to use his knowledge and skills to make your trip as best as possible.

For your trip, you’ll be using a 19’ Lowe aluminum fishing boat that can sit up to 3 anglers. It’s powered by a 90 HP Yamaha engine and has got quality GPS and fishfinder systems to keep you on the track of your prey. There is also an onboard livewell to supply you with live bait.
