Bass Fishing Charter Services

Outdoor Expeditions USA offers year-round guided fishing trips for anglers of all ages and experience levels including tournament style largemouth bass fishing (using artificial lures) as well as family fishing trips for largemouth bass, crappie, white perch, catfish and other species (using both artificials and live bait).

Whether you are a die hard, species specific tournament bass angler or crappie fisherman, a family or group of friends looking for a tug on your line or wanting to introduce a young one to fishing for the first time, I’ve got you covered. I welcome anglers of all experience levels and offer trips for everyone.

Largemouth bass fishing trips are best done off of my fully rigged, tournament ready Triton bass boat. This provides a more personalized experience and gives you more one-on-one time, allowing us to cover water quickly and efficiently.

Family fishing trips for up to 6 people are done off of the 18′ pontoon. This is a great option if you are looking to entertain a group and fill a cooler for a fish fry! Both boats are equipped with Lowrance HDS LIVE electronics and GPS trolling motors for fishing finding and positioning accuracy.

I will not be fishing during your trip and will only be there to put you in fish holding areas and to assist you with your fishing needs. High quality, digital photos of you and your catch at no additional charge.

Where to start!!!!! I have been finishing my whole life but I have never been on a fresh water charter. My wife decided... to take up my fishing hobby and I found out about outdoor. She had the time of her life and caught her first fish with Joel. He put us right on top of the fish and the trip was amazing. I will definitely be taking more trips with outdoor and also be referring everyone in you direction more

What a great outing! My wife and I caught loads of crappie and enjoyed a beautiful morning on the lake. Joel knew... where to go and had us in the fish in a hurry. We really enjoyed our time on the lake and Joel is an outstanding guide. He goes the extra mile. Highly Recommendedread more

I enjoyed fishing with Joel as a recent birthday gift for my hubby. Joel is brilliant! He is gracious, knowledgeable... and patient. Our 9 year old joined in and Joel was able to keep our crew of various experience levels and skills very well entertained. I did not expect to have so much fun! The time flew and we caught a whole bunch of fish. This experience exceeded my expectations. We will call on Joel again for fishing fun in the more

After seeing all of the reviews on google, and wanting to get our kids (7,13) out to fish during track out, we booked... an afternoon trip with Joel. The experience was everything represented by other reviewers. Joel was welcoming, knowledgeable and encouraging & engaging with us all! We brought my son’s new rod combo and tackle box and Joel willingly answered questions about everything from gear to ecology and the sport of fishing. We landed about 20 fish between 3 of us, and we all had a great time. My daughter caught her first fish of many and was thrilled- and enjoyed squeezing the “first fish chicken” on the boat.It was a wonderful combination of fun and relaxation on the boat- this will definitely be something we do again, and was a perfect trackout activity as a family! Thanks Joel, we look forward to next time!read more

Had a great time with Joel! Very professional, insightful and engaging. Had the pleasure of having Maddie as our... guide as well who made this experience even more enjoyable. Recommend booking one of these trips ASAP. Great experience for both the beginner and experienced fisher. Great trip to book just for the lake & views- fish are a bonus. Going again soon- and again, and more
