The fish in these waters include Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, Walleye, Yellow Perch, Lake Trout, Carp, Freshwater Drum, White Bass, Bowfin, Garfish, and more with any luck.

Reel Vermont Guide Service is a kid-friendly charter service, so go ahead and bring the whole family along! Be sure to ask if child-sized life vests are available, otherwise, you should bring your own. Snacks are never a bad idea so that nobody gets grumpy on an empty stomach!

You’ll be fishing aboard a 23’ Dargel bay boat with room for 6 passengers. It comes with everything you need for a productive day on the water. Rods, reels, and tackle are included, as well as lures. Live bait is on offer, but you should ask the captain whether you’ll be catching it yourself.

You will need to get a local fishing license before the trip. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species might be protected or require a tag to keep them, so make sure you know what to expect. It’s recommended to bring sunglasses, sunscreen (non-spray), bottled water, and a hat. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but you should avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.
