I'll do it for 1/2 that price out of my flats boat!!!!

Gil and Capt.Hook....you boys need to order a hat!



Love the hat! I think I'm buying one.

I could never guide. Not that I'm even capable, but if I were, I'd hate it. Too friggin' hard, long hours, need too much patience, and I'd want to fish. But mostly, I couldn't take the pressure of having to produce day in and day out.

I "guide" a bunch of people carp fishing and a few for smallies and trout. Knowing you aren't getting a dime takes the sting out of having a mediocre fishing outing. I just couldn't cut the mustard and would never want to try. Hats off to those who have the stomach for it.

C.H you have a funny way of looking at stuff,what i said was 100% true or why else would somebody pay a "guide" what are you getting for your money if you allready know where the fish hold or what the will hit ?.get a grip i never said anybody was over loaded with money,its like any thing else you pay somebody for a service you a-dont know how to do. b-you dont want to do or c-you dont have time to do.you take lots of stuff offensive around here.looks like you have lots of issues & im going to leave you with them.mike243

No issues just not going to sit back and let misconceptions be broadcast when they are not the case. Since you are not a guide, haven't been with a guide but once you make a lot of assumptions about a profession you have little experience with, that is all. Nothing personal with you, just your views from time to time.

I have been keeping my mouth shut about Captain Hook for a while now, but you come off as a total rear end just about every time your fingers touch your key board. I can only imagine that you would be the same way in person. If your business is guiding, I wouldnt let anybody know what your business is named, word of mouth and world of forum could ruin your business with an attitude like yours.

Sorry to hear you have that perception of me, and I guess it is my fault for being blunt at times. However, how did this turn into a personal bashing thread when Fordman asked for input about guiding?

If you have a personal problem with me then send me a PM rather then clog the forum with pointless personal peeing matches. Since you live in Knoxville, maybe a lunch outing can clear the air.

You are exactly right, Its the same for anybody that is buying services thru another person that is paying thier bills thru their profession....

Mike 243, I went back and reread your posts, and I think I jumped to a quick judgment which was false. Now that I went back I do not have the same feelings as before and do apologize for not comprehending your sentiments on this subject.

Dammit fellas I got a little red when I read Mikes reply. After thinking about it and having a glass of stump water I got his point. YES your paying for a service. NO its not always people who have loads of money. Case in point if a person likes to fish a out of a drift boat, or a certain river is not outboard motor friendly, its convenient to hire a guide and let them handle the logistics.
