Arizona Fishing Charters
For most die hard anglers out there fishing year round is a way of life. But for some folks across the country they don’t get to enjoy the same luxury as us due to cold temps and lakes freezing over. Here in Arizona we are operational year round, whether we are taking clients out guided fishing trips, competing in tournaments or hosting tournaments for the Cactus Cup Team Trail. When you are trying to decide which company to book your trip with, it can be tough to decide with so many different Arizona fishing guides in the state. In this article we will go over what to expect when you book a trip with FishIn48.
Arizona is a hidden gem for fishing enthusiasts, offering a diverse range of aquatic habitats and an abundance of fish species. From the high country streams to desert reservoirs, the state has something to offer for every angler. In the northern region, fly fishing for trout is popular in the clear waters of the White Mountains and Mogollon Rim. Meanwhile, in the southern desert, bass fishing reigns supreme and home to some great largemouth and smallmouth fishing. Bass fishing is what we focus on but not limited to only that, we also go after crappie, stripers, catfish, red ears and bluegill. Arizona has year-round fishing opportunities, with mild winters and warm summers allowing for great fishing throughout the year. With its picturesque scenery, variety of fishing experiences, and plentiful catches, Arizona truly is a paradise for any angler.
Booking your trip
When you are ready to book your trip you can go to the home page of FishIn48 and look for the green button in the center of the home page or you can locate it on the top right portion of the website. Once you click book your trip, you will need to fill in your name, phone number and email along with your preferred date and length of trip. Once you have done that you will receive a phone call from Nick to go over the trip and answer any questions you need. If you don’t know which lake you want to go to our team will tell you exaclty what’s going on at the different lakes so you can make the best decision based on that information.
What you need
This is one of the most common questions we get on our initial call. Is there anything we need to bring or do for the fishing trip? The answer is, NO! The only thing you will need is an Arizona fishing license which you can get on the Arizona Game & Fish website. If you are an Arizona resident you can get an annual license for $37 or $15 for a short term license. If you are coming from out of state that annual license is $55 and the short term is $20. Besides the license all you need is a phone thats fully charged because we hope to have you taking pictures all day long! Guided bass fishing trips in Arizona will make a great memory for anyone on any occasion.
Our Equipment for your trip
When fishing anywhere the right equipment is extremely important and that is why we only use the best. When you get to the lake you will hop in one of our fully loaded tournament rigged bass boats. We have a Skeeter ZX250 and Nitro 21XL. When you are on the water you will be using Alpha Angler rods and Daiwa reels, two amazing brands that are tough to beat in this industry. We will have stocked cooler with snacks and drinks as well. Our boats have all of the latest technology including forward facing sonar which gives any anglers a huge advantage finding and staying on the fish. We will also provide life jackets, fishing seats, tackle and cameras. We can record the trip with multiple cameras so if you want us to make a highlight video for you we can do that so you have a memory that will last a lifetime.
When and where?
We hope that when you’re looking to book your next Arizona fishing charter you choose FishIn48. We would love to take you to any of our gorgeous Arizona lakes. We most often frequent Lake Pleasant, Bartlett Lake, Saguaro Lake, and Roosevelt Lake but also venture out to some of our lakes a bit further away. A lot of our clients tend to be snowbirds from out of state and they love fishing in the fall and winter. One recommendation I have is do not sleep on Summer time fishing. Even though our Summers can be very hot at times, it is my favorite time of year to fish along with Spring time. We can do early morning trips to avoid the heat and our night time trips in the Summer time are a blast. We hope to see you on the water soon! Tight lines

Nick Teschler – FishIn48 Owner & Guide
Nick is a 3rd generation Arizona native and has grown up fishing since he was 4 years old. He started fishing for trout as kid up in the White Mountains with his Dad and Grandpa and once his family moved to Arrowhead Lakes when he was 13 years old, his passion for bass fishing began. After many years of bass fishing he was going out quite a bit with Ron Johnson who pushed him to pull the trigger on his own bass boat. Once he got his boat he was spending over 150 days per year on the water and really embraced the grind of growing as an angler. Nick began to educate himself on the different aspects of bass fishing outside of Arrowhead Lakes to really gain confidence in the local tournament scene. Since then Nick has fished a lot of local tournaments and some regional events as well. He has made quite a few top 10’s and has 3 first place finishes to date.
