Do I need a fishing license?
Yes. A valid North Carolina fishing license is required and can be obtained through the NC Wildlife Resourses Commission by clicking here.
What do I need to bring?
I recommend bringing a hat, polarized sunglasses, sunscreen and rain gear if rain is in the forecast. Dress for the weather and put on a little extra in the cooler months. Bring anything you would like to eat or drink during the trip. Large coolers are welcome on the pontoon boat and small coolers bass boat. You are welcome to bring your personal rods, reels and any tackle that you would like also.

Rates are posted on the Book A Trip section for Shearon Harris and Jordan. Falls Lake rates change depending on time of year and scheduling. Please call me directly 919-669-2959 for price quotes on Falls for specific dates. You can use any major credit card to reserve your trip.

Is there a place to stay close by the lakes?
Yes. Please see our “Accommodations” section for a map of lodging and dining close to the lake you will be fishing.
Do I need to bring any tackle?
All tackle, rods and reels are provided for use. I provide open faced spinning tackle for all clients at no additional charge. You are welcome to bring your own gear if you would like. Please make sure your line is rated for 10lb – 20lb test and is fresh so we don’t lose lures and BIG FISH!
How many people can go?
Maximum of two clients and one guide for largemouth specific and multi-species trips using my bass boat. Up to 4 for family fishing trips on the pontoon boat. Weight restrictions apply.
