Fairwater Charters utilizes expert drift and wade fishing strategies, employing artificial and live bait to maximize catches. While drifting, bait is skillfully adjusted to match currents, and in shallow water, stealthy wading techniques enable close encounters with fish. These methods, guided by experienced professionals, ensure consistent success.
Experience an unforgettable full-day drift and wade fishing adventure with Fairwater Charters. For $650, up to 3 anglers can relish exhilarating fishing experiences from sun up until 2 pm. An additional angler can join for $50 each, but because your safety is prioritized, groups with four anglers are required to wade fish because fishing on our boat with four anglers can be dangerous.

Live bait is available upon request at the customer’s expense. Remember to bring a valid fishing license, appropriate clothing for the weather, sunglasses, sunscreen, chapstick, wading gear, food/drinks, a cooler for transporting fish, and a camera to capture the memories.

    Fished with Todd 2 days recently. Had a great time. Todd was extremely helpful to all in our party. He worked hard to put us on fish. Could not have anticipated a better experience. My son and I started planning our next trip on our drive home.

    We had two great days of fishing with Todd, what a knowledgeable and fun guy to be around. There were three of us fishing and we had a blast every minute of our time together. If you go to Port Mansfield, give Todd a call at Fairwater Charters for a great time on the water catching fish, Doug, Don and Boogie.

    The experiences we’ve had with Captain Todd have been unbelievable. He’s very knowledgeable and personalable. He knows where the fish are yet likes to have fun. Won’t fish with anyone except Fairwater Charters. Give him a call. You won’t be disappointed.
