Jason Shay

Jason Shay started fishing before he could walk. He used to ride his bike to all the local streams to catch fish. At the age of 13 he got his first boat, a 14 foot jon boat.

In 2002 he started taking his fishing passion seriously and started fishing tournaments at a club, state and regional level. However he found a true love on the Susquehanna river. He guides year round. He loves the rush of putting clients on hard fighting smallies.

He operates a 1860 Snyder Jet boat outfitted with a 150/105 Evinrude Etec jet, all the Minn Kota accessories and a UHMW high strength bottom to make his boat glide over the rocky Susquehanna bottom. This helps him get to areas other boats can't get to. Jason's clients often believe in disbelief of how awesome a fishery the Susquehanna river is. He is constantly on the water to keep his clients on the big ones. Let Jason prove to you why the Susquehanna is one of the best fishing smallmouth rivers in the nation. Jason is a commercially insured and PA licensed fishing guide with both CPR and first aid certifications.

Rocky Droneburg

Rocky Droneburg of Hagerstown, Md frequents both the Potomac and Susquehanna Rivers. Probably best known for his prowess with the river Muskie of the Potomac River. He has logged 100s of hours each year since 2007 after the fish of 10,000 casts. Rocky also spends countless days a year chasing trophy smallmouth on both Rivers too!

Rocky gets great fulfillment out of sharing his knowledge with beginners and avid fisherman alike. From how to pop a hung tube jig off a rock, to properly executing a figure 8 for a musky. He looks forward to sharing his experience with you!

Corbin Gotwalt

Corbin Gotwalt has had a summer cabin on the Susquehanna River in the Goldsboro pool since he was born. He also fished many tournaments growing up from the local tournament to the TBF, BFL, PA Districts, Everstarts, BASS Opens, and the BFL All-American. This local knowledge of years spent with time on the water has pushed him into the guiding business. The first boat Corbin ever owned was a 14 foot fiberglass boat with a 9.9 hp Evinrude. He now runs a 20 foot G3 with a Yamaha Outboard and Power Poles. His passion for fishing, puts him on the water at least 100 days a year and he enjoys every minute of it.

When it comes to the fishing side, Corbin is always fishing the latest and greatest techniques. He is constantly catching fish by thinking outside the box and patterning fish in many different ways. The combined knowledge of Largemouth and Smallmouth fishing that Corbin has learned over the northeast in the last 15 years allows him to consistently catch fish when conditions are tough. No matter what the conditions are, or the body of water that Corbin is fishing, he has found consistent success in catching large bass. Book a day with Corbin, and you are sure to improve and learn something. His clients consistently leave at the end of the day with a smile on their face and a wealth of knowledge learned on the body of water about various techniques.
