    The shuttle business is very lucrative in that area. Gene recently told me he shuttled over 50 in 1 day (he has a team). Crazy! That being said, Gene and Ines are terrific and trustworthy.

    Only 50. Who did the other 150! Lol!
    The West Branch is like a drift boat parade this year.
    It’s actually comical seeing so many boats stacked up
    Behind each other , especially on the weekends. The week days
    Aren’t much better , but a little less pressure .
    Someone should open up a guide school and used drift boat
    “Buy here pay here “ dealership and cash in . “You too,can live the dream!”
    Lol!

    This is why I don't fish the WB anymore. Ever since Dream Catcher came around, the place became a zoo.

    That is certainly true to much extent, but the boat issues aren't their fault. More and more private boats are on the water and not just 90% guide boats like it used to be. Of course you no longer see many pontoons anymore as everyone that could bought a drift boat.

    Also, lots of the private boats do their own shuttles. I know I try to when I float up there. The guides need to hire a shuttle unless they have a spouse willing to take on that duty as some do. But there are still many private boats that use shuttles as well. That business has to boom this time of year.

    I won’t go near the WB when it’s like that. I live up here and have
    The Susquehanna in my front yard , I find myself fishing it more
    Than the WB, which I started fishing over 30 years ago.The WB during
    May and June has become a zoo, way too many boats, and sadly it will
    Only get worse with the baby boomers (like me) retiring , or having
    More free time on their hands buying boats and floating the river. That and more and more guides ever year living the Dream . It’s an incredible
    Fishery with a lot of internet and media exposure,you can’t blame anybody for wanting to spend the day fishing it,but the crowds take a toll
    On the fishery and fishing experience. Boat after boat constantly hammering the same areas all day.
