Fishing Guide Fees 

Our guides receive $275 per day.   Guides take 1-2 persons per day and typically provide their own boat, motor and gas.   Other details:

  • Per local tradition, guests on the American plan are billed for the guides lunch which is prepared by the Rideout's staff (you are charged $10).   
  • The guide fee should be paid directly to the guide in cash (or check).
  • It is customary to pay a cash gratuity to the guide which again is paid directly to the guide...a typical tip would be in the 15% range.
  • Bait and tackle, if needed, is charged to the guest.
  • Guides often provide for guest's use appropriate or preferred rod/reel combos....this can be confirmed in advance with the guide.
  • If the guide is guiding out of a guest's personal boat the guide fee will typically be $225 per day.
  • If the guide is guiding out of a Rideout's rental boat the guide fee will be $225 per day, plus a $50 per day boat fee to be paid to Rideout's.
