OK, I'm way overdue to book a guide trip and want to know who you guys have used and are happy with and what lake(s) they fish.
Thanks in advance for the help!

I have never used Aaron, but hear great things about his service on Lake Oconee. He also gives a discount of sorts to Woodys members.

And Aaron is a real nice guy.....an added bonus
 
I have fished with Ron Savage on West Point several times and we have always caught bass.He will only use artifical bait however.I fished with Tommy
Mike one time,his boat broke down and he still charged full price.The steering
cable broke way up in the river and we steered the 150 with a rope back to his house.We gave him $700 dollars he gave us 6 fish and a teeshirt.

I recommend Aaron as well for Oconee or Jackson.

I also enjoyed fishing with and caught a lot of fish with Ron Savage on West Point.
 
Yep, I also recommend Aaron. My son and I went out with him last year on Oconee. Some of the worst conditions for bass fishing. Was early August to begin with, which is tough for bass. But then the weather turned out to be awful, unusually cold and very windy.

But Aaron put us on some fish and we ended up having a great time and learning a few things about fishing there.

tommie mike on west point for largemouth/hybrids
doug youngblood on lanier for stripers

have used them both one time each as a fathers day gift to my dad. each trip sucessful, fun, and informative....
 
If your are interestd in a trip to west point please call around to some of the marinas on the lake and ask for advice on which guide to use. there are couple of real crooks on the lake. I have some tips when booking never book with a man who has to advertise. just as always there might be a couple of exceptions but this is a good rule to follow. I work part time as a guide on west point and I would recomend herschoul calhoun. He is the best on the lake and his cooler shows it at the end of the day. He taught me how to fish with live bait.
 
Thanks for all the nice complements guys. Hope to take more Woodys memebers out this year.
Phil - get with me and we will go - the bite is good on Oconee right now. I have very few full days available in May and still have the 30th of this month open. Also doing a lot of evening trips (half day trips)- from 5 pm til dark, this bite is normally best in the summer.

Anybody interested let me know.
 
How much $$$ does it cost for a full day and half day? Just a guesstimate. And what about tipping? Have never used a guide and don't know the etiguette. Thanks.
 
SF -
I personally charge 300$ for a full day and 225$ for a half day trip. Tipping is appreciated - but not expected. I do find that most people are generous in their tipping. Especially after a good day.

Logan offers guided trips on his private pond. $50 per day, $30 1/2 day, you supply all of your gear/tackle.

He can only do afternoon trips at this time since he is still in school and has soccer on Saturday's. No Sunday trips.

All fish below 3 and over 15#'s may be kept.

Pictures and references available upon request.
