We had an excellent time with Keith for Ice fishing! Caught a Northern Pike on a jigging rod of all things! Keith was always professional, friendly, and very instructive. Highly recommend!

Keith really runs a terrific private ice fishing excursion!! From the start, Keith was extremely responsive, organized and full of knowledge and excitement over our family’s desire to try ice fishing for the first time. Keith was thorough in his planning with us so that we were prepared and comfortable with our plans. The day was amazing—-Keith is an expert fisherman, and he so was patient with all of us non fishermen/women. We learned so much and really had the time of our lives with Keith! We will definitely do another excursion with Keith soon, and highly recommend him!

Keith and his dad run a great service and provided us with an excellent time on the lake. He knows what he’s doing and takes his time to teach the tour group. Absolutely would book again.

We had a blast fishing with Keith last week. He put us on nonstop action on a hot day, which is not easy. The lake was beautiful and fun to jump in as well. My nine-year-old daughter does not have a ton of fishing experience, but he was able to get her working the retrieves perfectly, and she ended up out fishing me by a long shot! We got largemouth, smallmouth, rock bass, Pickerel, Perch, and sunfish. Keith is great with kids, and a lot of fun to hang out with for grown-ups. His boat and equipment are top notch as well. I would recommend this guy to anyone, And we are looking forward to our next trip which might be some ice fishing.

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.
