our 24' willie fuzion
Jeff Goodwin’s Guide Service operates a 2014 24’ Willie Fuzion Jet Boat while fishing the NorCal rivers and can comfortably accommodate up to six (6) guests. We paid special attention to every detail of its design, and spared no expense when we had this custom boat built at the Willie Boats factory in Central Point, Oregon. Our 24' Willie boat is undoubtedly one of the nicest boats operating on northern California waters and is constantly turning heads driving down the freeway or when we are out on the water fishing. This boat was carefully built with our guests comfort and safety in mind. This functional and reliable fishing guide boat provides our guests with a very stable fishing platform and gets us to the fishing grounds every day. Our boat is equipped with all USCG required safety equipment.
our 26’ Willie Nemesis
We have recently added a larger boat to fish our lake charters in. We sometimes encounter windy conditions on our large reservoirs and as a result have added a much larger boat to our fleet to better handle the larger bodies of water we fish and also to provide more comfort for our clients when we experience choppy conditions. It has larger, more comfortable seating, and has a large top to keep everyone out of the sun or in from the cold during their day on the water throughout every season of the year. Enough room is never in question when fishing up to six client parties. Maximum comfort and safety for our clients is one of our top priorities.
rods, reels, lines lures & tackle
We feature G.Loomis & Shimano rods and reels on our boat.
We have partnered with many fishing tackle and fishing gear companies which enables us to use, and offer to our guests, some of the finest fishing equipment in the industry. All of our G.Loomis fishing rods are paired with Shimano reels and are very easy for our guests to use during their day of fishing. We use Power Pro braided lines for heavier applications, like fishing for salmon and striped bass. We use PLine premium fishing lines for our lighter applications which include our lake salmon, trout and bass fishing lines. We have worked tirelessly with Dick Nite Spoons and have found amazing success with their products for our river trout fishery, and our lake fishing adventures for trout, King salmon, and Kokanee salmon. Pautzke Bait Co. scents, brines, and Fire Corn have been, and always will be, an important part of our success on the water while fishing with clients. There are many more companies in the fishing industry we work with, but these are just to name a few.
It is our belief that utilizing only the best bait available while fishing Northern California waters is essential to our success on the water. We cure our own salmon and steelhead roe and have developed some "special" recipes for every species of fish we pursue. Developing our own special blend of www.pautzke.com bait curing product has been the key to our success on the water and often times will be the reason we are catching fish and others on the same waters are not. From curing salmon eggs to brining frozen bait, we use Pautzke products exclusively!
