ROD START
YOUR PRO GUIDE

”Green Mountain Fishing Guide Service not only puts you on fish, Rod Start teaches you how to catch them!“

Whether you are a seasoned angler, new to the central Vermont lakes region, or simply in search of a quality bass fishing experience – Green Mountain Fishing Guide Service has the expertise to help create memories that will last a lifetime. With his decades of experience on the best bass lakes in the region, it‘s no wonder why many of Rod’s clients have been with him for 10 years or longer.

“In 2002, while researching guides for Lake St. Catherine, I came to find that the only guide I should be considering was Rod Start‘s Green Mountain Fishing Guide Service. Thanks to Rod’s expert instruction, I have learned how to locate fish and present lures that will trigger strikes. He continues to teach me things that would take years to learn through trial and error. Best yet, I am able to translate this knowledge to my home lakes which makes my time on the water more enjoyable. Rod is a great teacher, guide, and friend who makes fishing what it should be – fun!”

 

– Mark S., New York

 
 

GUIDE SERVICES

Green Mountain Fishing Guide Service offers half-, full- and multi-day guides on many central Vermont lakes, including Lake St. Catherine, Lake Bomoseen, and Lake Hortonia. These lakes offer some of the finest Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, and Northern Pike fishing the region has to offer. In addition to these sportfish species, panfish of all kinds – Bluegill, Rock Bass, Yellow Perch and Crappie – are plentiful and eager to bite (which keeps the kids happy!). All equipment, bait, and tackle is provided. Fishing is done from a fully-equipped 21-foot Nitro bass boat. Bird watching trips are also available!


“On my first guided trip with Rod, he convinced me to ‘keep an open mind’ as he handed me a light-action rod with a hair jig tied to 6-lb. test line. It was spring and the smallmouth bass were in the shallows. In addition to the many quality smallmouth I caught and released that day, I hooked and landed a 5-1/2 lb. largemouth! I’ll never forget the excitement of trying a brand new technique and having it pay off big. Rod not only knows where the fish are, he knows what lures to use to get them to bite!”

 

– Dave A., New Jersey

“First of all, I‘m not a great fisherman. But I discovered Rod Start and Green Mountain Fishing Guide Service over 20 years ago, and I have caught fish every time I‘ve gone with him. Just do what Rod says, and you can‘t go wrong!”
