There is plenty of fishing space for up to 2 anglers on board.

Frank is a professional and seasoned tournament pro fisherman. Licensed and bonded.

All trips come with quality rods, reels, tackle, and lures. You will also be provided with snacks and drinks.

    Bobby Barrack is a legend in the Snag-Proof world of trophy largemouth bass fishing. I have had the great honor of being mentored by this legend! From the color of the frog or how to have the best results of the current weather and season, I can put you on some big fish! Beginner or pro, every day on the Delta is a rewarding and memorable experience. I have placed in many tournaments across the US but the waters of the Delta have won over my passion for this exciting sport of catching the next trophy!

    Bass is getting fat in the chilly waters of the Delta! Treat yourself and your favorite person to a pre-spawn adventure. This species is highly aggressive as it protects it's nest and future trophy bass aggressively. Nothing compares to the aggressive behavior of pre-spawn bass. Limited bookings over the next few months so save the date. We can promise a day of fun, relaxation, and tight lines. Nothing compares to the adrenaline-filled moment of a big one that is hooked!
