Stay Bent Fishing Crew Ohio Muzzleloader Season Trip

Well, the stay bent fishing crew had another successful Ohio muzzleloader season. We started this trip with a bunch of laughs on the truck ride down. And as we got closer we all began to get very excited because of the snow on the ground as we approached Ohio.

As any hunter knows, we all woke up an hour before the alarms went off out of pure excitement. During breakfast, we made a game plan for the four of us. It was about 5 degrees that morning so we figured we would all find sunny spots to sit and hunker down as long as we could. As first light had come up, we all heard lots and lots of gunshots, but none were from our group. After a few hours of nothing but hunters, we went to some other woods. After not a lot of action, we made a game plan for the afternoon sit.

 

And before most of us had even got to our spots we heard a “Bang.” Ben got on the radio and said: “I just shot the biggest buck of my life.” As he went over where the buck disappeared it was standing there all hunched up from the first shot so he shot it again hitting it a second time and the deer started to head towards private property but then bedded in front of Rachel. Rachel noticed its head was still moving so she shot it hoping it wouldn’t make it onto private property. It got up, ran two feet and dropped. Ben was excited as he could be to have the biggest buck of his life. As they were celebrating, “Bang,” they heard another gunshot. It was Keith; he shot a doe. The next day, Ryan and Rachel shot a doe on the same hunt within 1 minute of each other.

 

And the last day, Ben was the first one to tag out, shooting his second deer a doe. And Keith also was able to tag out the last day shooting his second doe. 4 hunters four days six deer. No guides do it yourself hunt!!!

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.

If you’re looking to catch a ton of fish and have a blast while you’re doing it, you’re at the right place! Can’t wait to go again.

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.

Great trip on Lake Bomoseen with my son! Enjoyed the day - Keith did a terrific job and it was a great experience. He works hard to ensure you're catching fish! We'll see you again next year for sure. Thanks. George

Keith runs a great business, has great character, and is invested in your success and happiness. No other captain and charter has brought me the experience Keith catered - lessons, laughs, diligence and a personalized journey hooking into fish all day. There wasn’t a half hour where we didn’t put a fish on the boat - of course each day is different - but you could always feel the magic when he put a rod in your hands. 5/5

We've now been out twice with Keith and had an awesome experience each time. He knows the lake like the back of his hand and put us right on the big fish time and time again. He worked tirelessly with my 5 year old son to make sure he had fun and learned a lot about fishing. I highly recommend Stay Bent Fishing Tours to anyone in the VT area who wants to go out and have a fun day landing monster fish.

Awesome half day trip on Lake Rescue for smallmouth and largemouth bass. Topwater action was consistent with several really solid fish. Beautiful lake. Guide was professional, knowledgeable and fun to spend the morning with.
