Maybe you don't have the time to plan your next outdoor trip, so let THE BACKWATER GUIDE SERVICE do it for you. With over 30 years of guiding experience I promise you a trip to remember for many years to come. 

Let's start with our second to none SMALLMOUTH BASS, LARGEMOUTH BASS, WALLEYE and NORTHERN PIKE fishing trips.  I come from a competitive bass fishing background starting in local bass tournaments in the mid 1980's all the way to the pros on the REDMAN and  B.A.S.S. tournament trail by the mid 1990's.  This experience sets The Backwater Guide Service apart from other guide services and outfitters in that I will be able to get you catching fish even when others are struggling. I use all of the latest techniques, equipment and lures on the market to give you the best chance of catching a trophy of a lifetime or even a bucket list fish in some of New York States most scenic bodies of water.  I am on the water 4-6 days a week to ensure every trip is a success. If you are looking for NORTHERN PIKE, we usually run into a few on each trip.  If that is all that you are looking for we can do that also. All rods, reels and tackle are provided for your trip.  I am an ENDORSED GUIDE  for ST. CROIX RODS, PURE FISHING, RAPALA, YETI  and all of our tube baits are from GITZIT INCORPORATED.  BERKLEY TRILENE, is freshly spooled on all of our ABU GARCIA reels for every trip.   

I am proud to announce that starting in the 2020 season, I will be partnered up with the ADIRONDACK HOTEL ON LONG LAKE. Carol Young and I are setting up a program where my clients can have a real Adirondack Mountain Lake experience in her historic hotel and a fishing trip of a lifetime with THE BACKWATER GUIDE SERVICE ending with a great lunch back at the restaurant. Check out her website at: www.adirondackhotel.com .             

  How about the chorus of a huge flock of CANADA GEESE cupped and commited to our decoys, or perhaps the rush of the first morning serenity being disturbed by guns being fired at the first set of MALLARD DUCKS busting into our decoys  PUDDLESET DECOY ANCHORS are on every decoy we own.  All of my calls are custom built by ECHO CALLS.
