Special "secret river" trip
This trip takes place on a river in north-western IL and is very water dependent. Smallies in this river tend to run on the LARGER SIZE. If you are looking to tangle with your biggest bronzeback of your life, this is the trip for you. June through September is best for this river. Prices for this trip are as follows:
$375 for one or two anglers (float trips only)
50% deposit may be required for new customers. Prices above do not include gratuity. Gratuity, of course, is not required but is appreciated if your day was an enjoyable one.
I will be offering some deals throughout the 2019 season. Here is the first deal:
Book two consecutive full days on the same river and receive the second day at 1/2 price!
If you wish to set up a two day trip, there is very affordable lodging in Minonk, IL at the Motel 6 or you can find lodging options in Pontiac, IL. This special deal is for two consecutive, full day trips only. Lodging for the "secret river" trip can be arranged as well.
Here is how my referral system works. After fishing with me, make sure I give you a couple of business cards with your name(s) on the cards. Then, if you refer my services to someone else and they book a trip (trip must be without the referring client), they receive $50 off their trip and you receive $50 off your next trip. Client must present the referral card when arriving at the river.
