Chartered Waters welcomes you to Branson, Missouri and invites you to join aboard an enjoyable and fun fishing trip in the Ozarks. Captain Brett Rader stakes his 20 years of experience that you’ll return home with a catch or he won’t charge you a dime for your trip! He’ll make sure you reel in a big catch and have loads of fun on the water, so give him a call and have a memorable fishing experience on Lake Taneycomo!

The boat you’ll use for fishing is a restored 24’ Lowe deck boat that can accommodate up to 2 anglers and runs on a 120 HP Evinrude engine. It’s wheelchair accessible and uses GPS and fishfinder electronics to make a safe and quick reach to the fish. You’ll have access to a toilet and you can use a multimedia system and an ice-box during your trip. The boat’s equipped with a wireless trolling motor, fighting chair, and livewell.

Using light tackle, you and your guide will be spinning, fly fishing, as well as drift fishing for Rainbow and Brown Trout. The fish you catch is yours to keep but you’re also free to release it if you wish to.

Captain Brett will supply you with both ordinary and fly fishing gear as well as live bait. What you should bring on your trip are fishing licenses, food, and drinks.

Chartered Waters waters is waiting for you, come aboard and create lovely memories on Lake Taneycomo!
