Goin4smallies Guide Service - Pennsylvania

Goin 4 Smallies Guide Service invites you down to Pennsylvania to fish the beautiful Susquehanna River. Even though the smooth waters of the river are home to a large variety of fish species, Smallmouth Bass deserve a special attention.

You will be targeting the fish that might have made the region famous. Capt. David, the owner and operator of Goin 4 Smallies has been fishing for Bass since he was a kid. He knows where Smallmouth hide and how to find them. With Capt. David, you won’t have to worry about anything at all!

You will go out aboard a 17’ Fish Rite jet boat, custom built in 2007 with comfort and style in mind. The boat has a 95 HP Mercury engine, plenty of fishing and seating space for up to 3 anglers, and modern technologies to save your time while searching for fish. Welcome aboard!

The trips come inclusive with the use of quality gear and tackle by the leading brands, such as Less and St. Croix. You will be using light ‘finesse’ spinning gear to target Smallies. Just don’t forget to bring something to eat and drink, along with a valid fishing license which you should purchase before the trip.

Please note, that all Smallmouth Bass you catch will be released. You will have just enough time to take a picture with the catch.

Bring your kids, friends, and fishing buddies. Introduce your kid to the fine art of sport fishing. Tight lines and fish on!
