S.F.T. Guide Service

The S.F.T. Guide Service began in 1993 when a customer wanted to learn how to worm fish. Word of mouth generated more trips, and today three guides are kept busy providing a variety of trips.


Guides, George Acord, Mike Acord and Dave Shindler specialize in Susquehanna Smallmouth with an emphasis on instruction.

Guide trips are on the Susquehanna River from the Conowingo Dam to North of Harrisburg, PA, as well as a number of area lakes. The "season" generally runs from March to November. Having grown up on these waters, George and Mike are very familiar with the subtleties involved in producing fish throughout the season.

A 21' 6" Skeeter Bass Boat And for shallow water a 20' River Trail Jet Boat all powered by Yamaha are available to guide customers along with top quality rods, reels and tackle. The customer also has the option of using his own tackle. Either way, guides will be available to give expert advise on any questions. Customers are also encouraged to provide their own polarized sunglasses, sunscreen and rain gear. Lunch can be provided by the service or customers can bring their own.

Full Day: $375.00
Half Day: $300.00

A nominal charge will be added for lost tackle.
A $50.00 non-refundable deposit is required.
Gift certificates are available.
In the event the weather prohibits us from fishing, every effort will be made to accommodate your wishes in rescheduling your trip.

Group and Corporate Functions
S.F.T. Guide Service can provide your group with a quality experience. We can accommodate large groups and are happy to customize an outing for you. We have always said that it is a lot easier to conduct business on an 18' boat than on an 18 hole golf course!
