What is provided:
Bassin Adventures provides everything needed for a full day trip on the
water, including tackle, rods and reels. There are stores on
the water if needed. You may choose to bring rods/reels you are comfortable
with, and some tackle of your own. I carry all the current baits so there's no
need to bring much in the way of tackle.
I do not charge extra for the use of my gear. You should plan to bring rain gear, even if rain is not predicted, and bring plenty of clothing if the weather is cool or cold.
Licenses are available at the launch sites, by phone or on-line. Click Here
for Fishing License information. We are checked on the water from time to time
by both wardens and the marine police. Licenses are the responsibility of the
customer. At this time, guides are not allowed to sell licenses, or allow people
to fish under a single guide license.
Bassin Adventures provides life vests, and all legally required equipment on
board. If you have special needs, special dietary requirements, or special
medical conditions, let me know and we'll work out the details to make sure we
have what we need for the trip.
Where to Meet:
A Meeting place will be specified with respect to which lake and predicted
weather. It is important to contact me two or three days prior to the trip in
order to finalize all plans, and discuss any weather or river related changes
for your trip.
Usually trips begin at safe light depending on weather. Exchanging cell phone numbers is a good idea in the event something happens during travel to our pre determined meeting place.
Normally I give directions to the launch site and we begin and end at that location. My phone is 256.599.4229.
Lightning or severe winds and rain can sometimes be a problem. If possible,
we will wait out passing severe weather in the bait shop or other shelter. If
the severe weather is prolonged, other arrangements must be made, rescheduling,
Safety is priority one.
