Expect darker waters than usual. Even on the the most beautiful of sunrises the water isn't blue....but nice and calm for great fishing.

Had an incredible day with Southern Sun Guides today. The boat was well equipped for a day on the water. We had an early start to our half day of fishing and Chad put us on fish right away. We caught fish all day. We caught 58 total fish today including 5 shad and one blue cat fish. Chad was an excellent guide and took excellent care of us today. I would highly recommend him as a guide. We will definitely use him again when fishing for rockfish.

Booked this for our fishing guys. They had a very young but knowledgeable Captain. He knew where to go but no guarantee of a catch (Normal). Born and raised in area. Would recommend NIGHT excursion for more catches and color on the lake. Boat not able to hold much more than 4 (and no mate) so a little high on price....but they made it work. Overall experience was a positive one.

Had a good time, the weather and water conditions were not the best, out of Chads hands he busted his hump to get us on some fish! My son loved it and that's all that matters, we'll be fishing with him again

Got more than we expected. Chad put us on the fish right away. We started catching rock fish from the first cast. We kept 5 nice ones to take home but we caught many more. He also took us on a tour of the river and he knew his way around. You have to know what you are doing in that river and he does. He even rescued some Fisher men who got stuck in the rocks.

My son and I went on a 1/2 charter with Chad fishing for catfish. Chad was waiting for us at the landing and we were on the river within 10 minutes of arriving. Chad did a great job of putting us on the fish. He also took the time to talk us through what he was looking for when fishing the river, even explaining the design of the hooks and why we were using that model. We had a fantastic time and caught more fish than I expected. Would definitely recommend him!!

Afternoon trip I would not recommend unless your staying close by. Finished fishing and at the dock at 7 pm didn't get home till 9:19pm. Fishing was good and we did limit out on Stripers and caught some nice catfish also. Web Sight a little misleading about boat being fished on and the description of types of fish was not accurately stated. Overall had a good time.
