chemdawg do you not understand the comment Stubby and I made? I said that's the best deal going anywhere and Stubby said man what a deal.
I have no problem with what anyone charges for there service and if they choose to do it for a public service that is great and wonderful. I can't do it because I use guiding to make a living and have for a number of years. I do donate trips to TPWD, and some charity events. I love fishing and wish I could just go fishing and take people for free or to simply cover my expenses, but I would soon be out of business and broke. My expense runs about $100 per trip. I know that sounds high but believe it or not figure it up, over a years time. Add up terminal tackle, rod&reel upkeep and replacement cost, boat&motor upkeep, gas&oil, insurance on truck&boat, launch fees, snacks&etc and it easily comes up to that figure. I'm very happy you can run trips and provide trips to active and retired military, emergency personnel, and other public servants. Keep up the good work, you are a blessed individual.
Clients or I have landed eight state record fish and eighteen water body records.
