Hiring a guide can be a smart move when you're traveling to fishing destinations you're not familiar with.
Guides know not only the hotspots but what baits and tactics work in them. A guide can save you a lot of time and hit-and-miss fishing by setting you up where there's fish and showing you how to catch them.
Hiring a guide isn't a guarantee. Guides get skunked, too. But the time you save will make the cost of the guide worthwhile.
Locate a guide by searching the destination you have in mind on the Internet. Guides are often listed on sites dedicated to the lake or river you're interested in or on the local tourism site.
