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 1866 custom built Alumaryder inboard jet powered by a Mercury 200 sport 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.

Matt Greene started fishing for smallmouth at a very young age. Growing up across the street from the Conodoguinet Creek made it very easy to get plenty of fishing in after school. At that time, all he needed was a fishing rod, old sneakers, shorts and some crayfish for bait. After returning home from the Army in 1996 his brother took him to fish in his first bass fishing tournament on the Susquehanna River. After that experience, he was hooked and purchased his first river jet boat. Matt started fishing tournaments on the Susquehanna River and then branched out to other venues. In time, he realized that the Susquehanna River was the place he wanted to focus on. Matt got his first taste of guiding when a friend asked him to fill in on a trip. What an amazing experience getting to share an awesome river system such as the Susquehanna River with clients.
