I’ve never been into fishing. I own a 22’ fishing boat that is docked in our town marina on the Long Island sound and have hardly ever gone fishing in it over the last 8 yrs that I’ve had it. Went for a guys weekend to Woodstock VT and booked a fishing trip with Stay Bent. Keith gave us a first class “American Express Platinum” fishing experience. Besides being the Yoda about fishing, he took care of us in every way. From making sure we caught fish to showing us how to use different fishing rods and bait, Keith was nothing less than a pro. He was also a true gentleman and went out of his way to make sure we had a great and beautiful experience. I now like fishing, a lot, thanks to Keith. Going to make this an annual trip with Stay Bent. Cheers Keith.

Keith is just a killer fishing guide. He took me and my wife to Lake Bomoseen. Put us on some monster largemouth bass. Helped my wife as she is learning and helped me with some subtle pointers so I learned quite a bit too. Knows how to find fish -- figured out what the fish liked in one cove and then went to a cove with similar water conditions and we had another strong run of fish.

My wife and I visited Vermont for our anniversary, and have always wanted to ice fish. We didn't really know what to expect, but it definitely wasn't the experience we got! Couldn't have imagined a better experience. Keith put in absolute work to make sure we had an awesome time and went over and above to make sure we caught some fish. The wife ended up landing a monster pike and largemouth. The experience made our entire trip worth it, and I'm so glad we called stay bent instead of anyone else.

My husband and I had the best time ice fishing with Keith as our guide! We caught bass, pickerel, pike, perch, and smelt and had a blast the whole time!

Keith was an outstanding guide. He was patient, took the time to explain the technique we were to use, and was set on us landing fishing. We had a great time and would definitely use his charter again.

Took the guys out for the day on the lake and had a blast reeling in big bass. Kieth was awesome and we will be using him again in the future.

I had the pleasure of being on Keith's boat August 6th fishing for my first lake trout trip. He put us on tons of fish and I put my limit in the freezer. Always a great time and an even better fishing guide.

Im not much of a fisherman, but Keith made me feel like a pro. He has top notch equipment, knowledge, and was very professional and patient with a novice like me.

Vermont Fishing Guide Vermont Bass Fishing

Professional and Purposeful

A professional fisherman doesn’t get lucky. The purpose of fishing is to catch fish. A professional fisherman uses the right techniques, with the right equipment, for the right fish, in the right place, at the right time. Nothing is accidental, nothing is by chance. When we venture out upon the water it is with a single purpose and that is we are intent upon catching fish. Read more...

Vermont Fishing Guide Vermont Bass Fishing

This is what it is all about...

Keeping the fishing rod bent because there is a fish on the line. Stay Bent Fishing Tours provides first-class fishing guide services for an unforgettable experience for those who want to catch tournament grade fish. Keith runs a successful fishing guide service throughout the state of Vermont.  Nothing gets the adrenaline going like hearing the whiz of the reel and feeling the pull on the line of what just might be a trophy catch. At the end of the day, you will have a real fish story to tell, and you won’t have to talk about the “one that got away.” You will be showing pictures and talking about, “the one I released to fight another day.” The aim of Stay Bent fishing is to provide an unforgettable experience that you will talk about for years to come.

Vermont Fishing Trips for trout, bass, pike and other fish are done on these waters. We fish on Woodward Reservoir  • Echo Lake • Kent Pond • Rescue Lake  • Ninevah Lake • Lake Morey • Lake Fairlee  • The White River • Lake Dunmore  • Lake Seymour • Lake Bomoseen. 

Challenge yourself against the small and largemouth bass with your fishing rod bent over while you fish the pristine waters of Vermont's lakes. This is what fishing is about. Enjoying the fresh air, battling a monster fish and building epic stories to tell your friends and family when you get home about the fish you caught. 

Come join us for a great time fishing on one of our Vermont Fishing Guided Trips.
