my name is Derek and I run this website to help people with their fishing and hunting trips. I am a particular fan of Snakehead fishing and with years of experience I have managed to figure out the best lures to use as well as the best times of day and year and some ideal places to target.
The information here is provided free of charge, but if you would like to avail of of my services as a fishing and hunting trip guide, just use the contact page and I can arrange for some information to be sent your way. I team up with many local experts, so no matter what your request is, I will be able to help out.
Along with fishing tips and tricks you will also find a lot of valuable information for hunting trips. I rarely go on trips where I do not combine the two, but this does take quite a bit of different planning.
Any kind of adventure trip will require quite a bit of gear and that can be very different dependent on your trip. Obviously an overnight trip will require tents and sleeping bags as well as some essentials for cooking. I can help you with all the planning and I have a list of things I generally request people to bring along for guided tours that I do.
Some people think that the gear you need for fishing trips can be easier to manage than hunting, but I personally find the opposite to be true. Here is what you need:
- Don’t show up with a beginners fishing rod
- Invest in a semi decent rod and don’t penny pinch on the reel
- Get the right lure for the fish you are targeting (check out my lure section for this)
- Bring a nice spotting scope
This last one surprises people, but I always bring my spotting scope on fishing trips. You will find yourself doing a lot of waiting around, while you are in an extremely beautiful natural surrounding. There will be hundreds of birds and animals to observe and you will have a lot of fun watching them through a scope.
Here is what you have to do before you set out:
- Ensure your rifle is clean and has been recently serviced
- Ensure that your hunting options are properly zeroed
- Check you have up to date licenses
- Plan for the target and time of year
It is this last item that I can especially help with as I have the experience and local knowledge to make sure you get what you set out for.
