Big Water Boating

Capt. Eric Richins Greater Las Vegas Area, NV Incorporated Licensed Insured

Even though Nevada is known as the driest state in the country, it’s home to many amazing lakes, reservoirs, streams, and rivers that provide great fishing opportunities. Big Water Boating and Captain Eric Richins know all of the best spots in the area to get you on the fish.

 

Captain Eric is owner and operator of Big Water Boating. He has over 10 years of guiding experience. Captain Eric is permitted to fish the waters of Colorado and its reservoirs from the border of the Grand Canyon National Park all the way to the Mexican border. Children are welcome so grab your family or a couple of friends for a fun day on the water with Big Water Boating. 

 

Captain Eric is at the helm of a 17’ center console powered by a 65HP Yamaha engine. His vessel is outfitted with outriggers, downriggers, a live well, and a wireless trolling motor. Modern electronics such as a GPS and fish finder are also on board as well as a casting platform and USCG approved safety gear. A cooler to keep your drinks cold and a multimedia system are on board Captain Eric’s boat.

 

Big Water Boating supplies you and your guests with superior rods, reels, tackle, and lures as well as fly fishing equipment. Fishing in Nevada will lead you to some pretty remote places where you’ll come across unimaginable things so it’s good to have a knowledgeable guide with you like Captain Eric. He specializes in teaching the skills and fun of catching fish. Capt. Eric will have you bottom fishing, drift fishing, jigging, spinning, trolling, and fly fishing on your trip with Big Water Boating. Captain Eric offers a trip to the local hot springs for a day of relaxing if you choose not to fish. Either way, you’re in for a fun day on the water with Big Water Boating!

 

Big Water Boating and Captain Eric offer many trips through the Las Vegas area including Lake Mead, Lake Mohave, Lake Havasu, and the Colorado River and that means impressive fishing, no matter what end of the state you happen to be exploring. You’ll be targeting Bluegill, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Catfish, Rainbow Trout, Striped Bass, Hybrid Striped Bass, and Shad. After your day on the water, Captain Eric will clean and fillet your catch for you.
