I’m a fisherman I know that every trip you don’t haul in mother loads and giant fish that’s why we have trophy fish and they call it fishing . All I ask is the guide put me In the position to catch the fish and give me some clues on may be what type of lure or bait and everything else is up to me and the giude Collin with Jason’s guide service did that he is knowledgeable about the habitat and movement of the fish in his working waters and he is open to all suggestions and not afraid of change . I think every trip is a adventure and that’s why I choose Jason’s guide service great group of people used them multiple times. Will see them again next summer.
