Online locator for fishing guides and charters

As the weather across the country is about to turn, anglers itching to get out fishing can start looking at some options for a guided trip at the BoatU.S. Angler Fishing Guide and Charter Locator.

Whether it's a trip for steelhead on the Great Lakes, fishing for monster bass in Texas, or seeking snook in the Florida flats, the locator allows anglers to easily search for a guide or charter operator by region, state, fresh water or salt water. More than 1,300 guides are now included - some offering discounts to BoatU.S. members.

Also included is a 20-plus question checklist that anglers can use when researching a potential guide or charter company, and a special section that includes chartering tips from pro angler Luke Clausen and National Bass Guide Service's Capt. Steve Chaconas, as well as helpful advice from the Fishing Wire's Jim Sheperd.
