We’ve grown up fishing the lakes and rivers in Southern Illinois. With over 60 years of combined experience…we know where the fish are! And time on the water is a huge advantage. Jason and Scott are on the water hundreds of days a year, knowing how the fish move and how they feed throughout the changing seasons. We love to educate you as well as put fish in the boat. There is nothing we love more than helping our guests become better anglers!


I have been a professional fishing and hunting guide for close to 30 years exclusively in southern Illinois. I fish all lakes in southern illinois including Rend lake, Lake of Egypt and Carlyle Lake. My passion if giving my clients the best fishing experience in Southern Illinois. We run a family business and when you fish here…you are part of the Boneyard Family!

Scott grew up here and knows Rend Lake like the back of his hand. And knows how to get clients onto a limit of crappie! Scott is on the water ALL the time so he is typically dialed in on the hot bite.

Scott’s boat is tricked out with all of the latest technology and equipment. All you need to do is bring yourself and a fishing license and get ready to catch fish.
