All about the trips

Ford's Guide Service runs trips for up to 6 people per boat. If you have a larger group, I have a network of other guides that I can call to assist on your trip. Most trips will start around daylight and finish up by noon. An average trip is about 4 hours, but that depends on the fish and what you want out of your day. On a day that we go out and catch a fast limit, I'm not going to take away from your time on the water unless that is what you choose. My goal is to make sure you have a great time and make lasting memories for years to come. 

The majority of the trip is live bait fishing with shad. There are times a good bite will happen on artificial baits such as swimbaits, topwater plugs and slabs. I always have rods rigged and ready if the opportunity arises. At the conclusion of your trip, I will clean and bag all of your fish. The daily limit for striper is 10 per person and 2 of those 10 can be over 20 inches.
