Flats boat carp experience: $400
(*8 hours) all the amenities on the full day trip but instead of walking we will be on a skiff. Our skiff is a 16′ aluminum jon boat. This boat has many uses, rivers, bass and flats access! The boat drafts in about 6″ of water, and with my poling platform, I have a great advantage at spotting carp. Using a push pole, I will get us into feet of unsuspecting fish. Ill call shots, and you make the connection! This is desert flats fishing at its finest, come get dialed so when you are on that bonefish flat, you know exactly what to expect!
Full day walking urban carp: $300
(*6 hours) We will begin early in the morning. We will discuss some basics and go over casting and other various techniques. Once on the water, We will start looking for signs of fish. I’ve become very good at spotting fish so once I spot one, I’ll give you directions and you make the cast. If we connect with a fish, I will net it and remove the hook. You can take a picture with it or we can just release it. This is how much of the day will continue. We will most likely switch spots and try other locations to keep it fresh. Breakfast burrito, lunch, drinks and snacks included.
Half day walking urban carp: $200
