When and where will we launch?
Because of weather and fish activity it is impossible to let you know where we will be launching weeks in advance. Standard procedure is to call me (518-928-9890) the evening before your trip is scheduled to discuss our plans for the following day. I make every effort to put you on the best fish given the conditions.
How many people can go? Update
Because all guiding is done out of new center console 6 people is the maximum for fishing trips. Rates quoted are for the daily rate regardless of how many people.
What if it rains?
All weather cancellations are my decision. Rain suits are provided if you do not have one. But it is asked that you bring your own as we do not cancel trips because of rain.
Can we keep the bass?
A Line In The Water is a guide service and not a charter trip. Every effort is made to release every bass caught in good shape to fight again another day. I prefer not to use live bait because it promotes gut hooking. Artificial baits are preferred for all bass trips.
How do I schedule a Bass fishing trip?
Scheduling or inquiring about a guide trip is as easy as calling (518) 928-9890 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. To learn more, visit our Reservations Rates page.

All you need to bring are snacks and food, if desired. You may also bring any fishing tackle that you'd like to use. A fishing license is required for anyone over the age of 16. They can be purchased online by visiting
What do I provide?
I provide quality spinning reels(left &right-handed)bait casting reels , the latest artificial lures, sunscreen, rain gear, ice, bottled water, and energy drinks. Live bait is an extra expense and can be purchased the morning of the trip.
I have no Bass fishing experience. Is that okay?
No fishing experience is needed. I pride myself in having the ability to teach my customers the latest tips and techniques for catching Trophy Largemouth Bass. With over 10 years experience as a professional tournament angler, I'm sure you'll enjoy the learning experience.
