Rip Their Lips Off Fishing Guide Service


Enjoy the thrill of going, Light for the Big Bite!

We have mastered the techniques that must be utilized for catching extremely large Salmon, Steelhead, Trout and Shad on very light tackle. Either fishing out of the custom built jet powered FishRite, or the smooth and quiet drift boats, we will provide you with exciting fishing and a truly enjoyable time.

As veteran and award winning outdoor writer Peter Ottesen wrote about Captain Dave Mierkey. "The tackle looked more appropriate for hooking steelhead than very large salmon filled with gusto. Once you hook a salmon, that's when the test of skill begins."
