Phoenix area bass guides

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone here have any recommendations for guides in the Phoenix area? I'll be down that way from the 11th to the 17th. Primary reason will be to visit some friends and hit a few cactus league games but I'd also like to get some fishing in. I won't have access to a boat or anything so I'd need to go with a guide.

fishin, I fished with an Art Chamberlain a few years back, who guided on Roosevelt this time of year. We trolled for crappies with jigs and shad raps, had a great time and seen a 16" get caught. The water levels on those reservoirs fluctuate like crazy, so if the water is high then you might be able to catch fish from shore. Several of the guides down there would post regularly on an Arizona fishing forum, I can't remember the name of the site. good luck...I'm jealous.

i did but need a 4x4 to get back to some spots but for the most we just had a few rods to fish with and also to use as a snake whip i bet i went 12 rods whiping those things, and a small backpack with your tackel and firstaid kit, but then we just pulled off the side of the road went down the bank and walk around the coves.

just take your time and dont grab anything before you pick anything up dont know what would be down there(ouch!!)

I would also have a comb with you, wide gap type just in case of the cactus dont grab it with your other hand use the comb to take it off.

    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
