Captain Howard Hammonds has been fishing Lake Champlain since 1972, first fishing the “Lake” while teaching and coaching at SUNY-Plattsburgh. Leaving education to work in the fishing tackle business, spending over 25 years as a sales manager, promotions and product manager for numerous major fishing lure manufactures, rubbing shoulders with the “best of the best” – Bill Dance, Guido and Dion Hibdon among others – learning the little secret techniques of catching bass. Since retiring from the industry, Howard has turned this time and knowledge to guiding on Lake Champlain. Based in historic Westport, he will fish the north end for smallmouth or southern Ti region for largemouth.
Fishing from his 521 Ranger powered by a 250hp Evinrude, he will show you the little secret spots using artificial lures. Catch and release only! Come as you are, he can arrange local transportation, housing and meals along with all the fishing tackle needed.
