Fishers Of Men Guide Service

Fishers Of Men Guide Service specializes in family-friendly guided fishing trips for Lake Norman and surrounding areas. Guide Justin Goodson has lived just minutes from the lake his entire life and has mastered the waters. If you’re looking for a safe, fun, and productive day of fishing, you have found the right place!

Fish like the locals aboard a 24’ Sea Ark Super Jon boat. It is a stable open fishing platform that comes powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. Perfect for accommodating up to 5 anglers, the vessel is fitted with top-notch navigational electronics and other professional accessories, including a wireless trolling motor for a quiet ride and an ice box to keep your catch fresh during the day.

Fishers Of Men Guide Service welcomes anglers of all skill levels and expertise. Whether you are a seasoned angler, a beginner, or a pro, your guide will put you right on top of hot fish. Spin and fish with light tackle for White Perch, fight with Striped Bass, Largemouth Bass, Hybrid Bass, and tempt Catfish.

All trips come with rods, reels, tackle, and live bait that you will catch at the beginning of the trip. You will need to purchase a valid North Carolina fishing license, bring appropriate clothing, your favorite drinks, and food.

With waters inviting to fish, all the necessary tools, and thousands of hours of experience, Fishers of Men Guide Service will give you an experience you won’t soon forget. Fishing is always better on your side of the lake!
