Hiring a Crappie Fishing Guide

When hiring a crappie fishing guide, use the internet as tool. You can locate many different guides through the internet. You can also often find reviews for many different guides. One thing I like to determine is just how long a guide has been in business. Many fishing guides are part time weekend warriors who earn their primary income from other sources. I advise you to avoid these guides. Look for a guide that is a true professional and earns his full time income from guide work. Not only does he have more experience at his trade he also is much more dependant on doing a good job.

There is a site on the internet named Fisherman’s Network. It simply put is a service that allows users to rate and review fishing guides. It is a very valuable tool to use in choosing a guide for your trip.

Once you have selected the guide you would like it is time to make the booking. If you guide only has limited opening that are often far in advance this is good news. It certainly appears the guide you have chosen is popular and has quite a busy schedule. At this time you need to make clear exactly what kind of trip you are booking. All the details should be negotiated at this time.

In the final analysis though it is often a situation you need to resolve by simply going with your gut instincts. If you do enough research you will find several guides in many areas who seem equally qualified. You need to make a decision and simply choose one that fits what you are looking for.
