One boat and a center console with 8 fisherman 1 guide, sparse seating and no pottie. No fish, (Stripers) either. The only bait available was frozen anchovies. No attempt to go for Bass and no gear for it either. The boat was not equipped with modern equipment like electronic anchoring so we fought the early morning winds moving four times.... More

This was a group fishing trip on Lake Pleasant----8 fishermen, 1 captain and a center console outboard. The captain was quite skilled, pleasant, funny and a real asset on the trip. It was a very windy morning so he took us to a cove that was protected. When the wind slowed he took us to another part of this huge... More

I booked the Sonoran Bass Adventure for my husband and I to celebrate our first anniversary. Two days before the trip I called them to confirm and Kyle told me we were the only two that had signed up and it was at risk of being cancelled because they require a minimum of four to go out on the tour....

Really nice boat that's the only good thing I have to say.Our guide was an older guy named Larry and great to talk to. Once on the boat, he said We would only be going for stripers and he didn't bring bass gear. We fished in only 1 spot tied to a dock and used frozen anchovies the whole time.... More

Went on a Charter late March 2013, the Fishing Pro was not at all a people person, started off bright and early acting like he did not want to be there with the rest of us. He was like a drill sergeant and very bossy, there was a full boat of 8 and I think everyone felt the same way.... More

Took my son and grandson on a full day fishing at lake Pleasant. Our guide Mike was excellent in helping our grandson and got him to the point that he caught two fish totally on his own. We spent the morning fishing for large and small mouth bass and the rest of the day fishing for strippers. It was a... More

My husband and I met up with our guide, Jason Blauvelt at the Hook-Up Outfitters retail store at Lake Pleasant. It was a gorgeous afternoon to learn something about fishing. Jason got us casting with some swim bait in hopes of luring some large mouth or stripers. Jason explained that water level fluctuations (not normal) for this time of year... More

I just spent 2 terrific days fishing with The HookUp Outfitters. Since I am a fairly experienced fly fisherman, but had never fly fished for bass, I thought I would give this a try. The HookUp Outfitters teamed me up with guide Dale Merry. Although the stripers were not to be enticed to the fly that day, Dale and I... More

Since the weather had cooled off substantially over a very short period of time & the water level was down I didn't know what to expect. Our guide Mike McFarland found a great spot and our group landed quite a few large strikers. The time passed before you knew it. It was a great time & gonna be an even... More
