Went fishing on Saturday, June 3, 2017

Long day, long day and NO FISH.  Cap tried hard, but no fish.  NO FISH is always a big issue.  Is hard to rate or review trip if no fish.  An expensive boat ride.  Did I mention there were not any fish caugbt

Went fishing on Monday, August 29, 2016

I booked a trip for my father and I during a weeks vacation in NC end of August. Jack’s Guide Service fit the bill. Capt. Jerry was very knowledgeable about Lake Gaston and the catfish species in general. The charter was very educational as much as it was entertaining. We caught some nice fish and enjoyed the trip. I will definitely using Jack’s Guide Service again. Catfishmanofnc.com. I will also will using fishing booker to plan my trip. The site is easy to use and I was reserved with a couple clicks of the mouse.
