My name is Taylor McCann. I was born and raised in Virginia. With the exception of a five year enlistment in the United States Coast Guard I have spent most of my life in the Old Dominion chasing fish and game. I have also done a fair amount of traveling with the outdoors in mind. One thing that I have discovered is that the best trips are not always when you catch the most, or the biggest, but when your goals and the outfitter’s goals are the same. I have fished with some captains that scream all day long because they are expecting a certain skill level that I didn’t have at the time. We caught tremendous trophies but it wasn’t a pleasant day. Conversely I have fished with other captains and caught outstanding stringers but they didn’t challenge me enough as an angler. My goal as a guide is to provide you with the correct environment in which you catch fish, have a good time, and learn something while doing it. It makes no difference wether you are a first timer on summer vacation or a tournament angler trying to get in some practice for an upcoming event. I can put together an enjoyable and informative day on the water.
Tail Walk Guide Service, LLC is not a weekend operation. I strive to be on the water 4-7 days a week. A typical day will begin at Sturgeon Creek Marina located on Route 208 in Spotsylvania. However, if you live waterfront or are renting a summer home on the water, arrangements can be made for dockside pick up and return. If you are in need of lakefront accommodations, ask me about fishing and lodging packages. All Guide Services affiliated with Central Virginia Outdoors (CVO) have access to several furnished waterfront lodges to accommodate your needs. Families and corporate groups are welcome regardless if all persons are fishing or not. Modest rates and flexible scheduling options make for a tremendous getaway.
While on a guided fishing trip all tackle and equipment is included. My boat is outfitted with Kistler Custom Rods for both spinning and casting presentations. The boat is a fish-ready 21 foot center console rigged with the most up to date electronics including GPS mapping, side imaging sonar, and a digital trolling motor with GPS guided autopilot. A large custom front casting deck (not shown in pic to right) and foot controlled trolling motor makes it ideal for bass fishing. The wide beam and cockpit provide a very comfortable platform for trolling and live bait presentations. It is powered by a 175 horse power four stroke motor that is smoke free and whisper quiet. Dual live-wells, an insulated fish box, and ample storage will ensure that you have a comfortable day on the water. With a top speed of 45 miles per hour I also have the ability to hurry back should foul weather set in. You are encouraged to bring a rain suit, sunscreen, camera, food, and drink. If you forget anything, all of these items are available lake side.
