Skylar Hamilton Guide Service

If you’re in the market for a day to remember, look no further than Skylar Hamilton Guide Service. With Captain Skylar at the helm, you’ll benefit from years of knowledge and experience.

Captain Skylar is a US Coast Guard licensed Captain, certified in adult and pediatric first aid and CPR. Captain Skylar takes great pride in being legal and safe on the water, making your trip a much more enjoyable experience.

The fish in these waters include Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Crappie, Rainbow Trout (Steelhead), Hybrid Striped Bass, Striped Bass, and more with any luck. You’ll target your catch by light tackle fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

Families making a day of it will be glad to know that kids are welcome aboard! If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, be sure to ask if there’s one on board. You’re welcome to bring snacks for a boost of energy when needed!

Your adventure begins aboard a 21’ Caymas bass boat with room for 3 passengers. It has all the essentials. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you, as well as lures. Live bait is included, but you should ask the captain whether you’ll be catching it yourself.

You will need to buy 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.

Don’t leave home without sunscreen (non-spray), a hat, and sunglasses. There will be some drinks on offer, but let the captain know if you wish to bring your own. Alcohol is allowed in moderation but preferred to be in a spill-proof container.

The click of a button is the only thing keeping you from a great day on the water with Skylar Hamilton Guide Service!
