Fishing Guide Fees 

Our guides receive $250 per day.  The guide fee is paid as follows: 1) $175 cash to the guide, and 2) $75 charged to Rideout's for a daily boat rental (whether the guest goes in a Rideout's rental boat or the guide's personal boat).

Other items:  

  • There is no daily boat rental fee if the guest takes the guide in their own boat (just pay guide $175 cash + tip).
  • If the guest is on the All-Inclusive plan it is customary for the guest to pay for the guides lunch which is prepared by the Rideout's staff (you are charged $10).  
  • Finally, as mentioned above, for either lodging plan it is customary to pay a cash gratuity to the guide which again is paid directly to the guide.  

Make the most of your fishing adventure and hire one of the many fine guides who work out of Rideout's!
