My girlfriend and I did an 8 hour trip with Curt this past weekend, and to say I was impressed would be a huge understatement. After reading the other reviews on this page I had very high expectations and Curt exceeded them. His dedication to his craft and his passion for fishing and teaching was remarkable. From the first cast to the last cast Curt was committed to putting fish in the boat and educating us on the how’s and whys in the process.

Our 8 year old grandson wanted to go fishing when he came up for the weekend. Not knowing where and how we searched the net and found The Night Owl Guide, who offered everything we were looking for.
The experience started by a quick and complete response to our request. Curt provided detailed and accurate information ahead of the trip and he asked us detailed questions about what we wanted and our experience, which all prepared us very well for the trip. He really made sure he knew exactly what we were looking for, which was to show our grandson a great time catching lots of fish.
Curt fulfilled all our hopes as he attended to our grandson from the beginning to the end and taught him how to cast, where to cast, how to reel in the lure as well as the fish and how to land the fish and hold it for pictures.
In addition he is a very nice and interesting person, which made the entire trip a blast for all of us.
Thank you Curt and next time our grandson or the other two want to go fishing we’ll all on Curt!

My daughter and I spent 6 hours this last Sunday on Indian Lake with Curt. The conversation was great and the boat was very comfortable but the fishing was even better. It was the first time my daughter had used artificial lures from a boat and she caught nine bass including a nice 4lb beauty. I caught 7 bass including one smallmouth. Curt caught 8 bass. We used a variety of lures from topwater to crank baits to senkos. It was a great experience. We plan to go again.

Spent a full day on the water with Curt and had a great time fishing for bass. Curt is extremely knowledgeable and used his years of experience fishing to teach me several things and help me catch a lot of bass (including a 3lber). Curt was very friendly and kind and had no problem with me asking several questions and giving me tips/advice. This was exactly the kind of trip I was looking for. Definitely planning on going out again this summer!!

My wife and I have fished together since 1984. Living in NC we have caught some very nice large-mouth bass.
We have fished with guides in WV,Tenn., Wisconsin, Arizona, South Carolina and the coast of NC. Some of the guides had great personalities others had great equipment, others great knowledge of fishing, worked very hard to make the day worth the money we were spending. In Curt Snow, you get it all!!!
My wife had a massive stroke in 2010, from which she is still showing progress. Still loves to fish. Curt gave her the calmest most heart felt attention both days. He put us both on fish.
We had a great time and made a lot of memories. Curt is by far the top of the guides that we have had, I now consider him a friend and will look forward to catching more fish on our next visit to RI.

Went out on Saturday July 7th with Curt from Night Owl Charters and had a blast! What an enjoyable experience to say the least.
Met up with Curt at 8:45pm at the Amos Lake boat ramp. He was classy and polite from the onset of our trip. He provided plenty of gear and has a wealth of knowledge.
Once we pushed off from shore, Curt began to share his 25 years worth of knowledge with me. He is very easy to get along with and provided a very relaxed and laid back experience. It didn’t take long to find the fish as we talked about different techniques and approaches to fishing.
We had to land at least 20 largemouth with only 1 or 2 below the two pound range. The bulk of our fish were over three pounds with 2 five pounders caught and a few in the 4 pound class. Definitely a great trip and I am looking forward to at least one more this year!

I have been on several charters with Curt, both day and night fishing. Curt actually introduced me to Night Fishing this year and opened my mind to a completely new way of targeting Large Bass. Intuitively, top water was the first thing to come to mind for night fishing and as I learned from Curt, there are several other techniques & presentations that are hands down more productive. The night we went out, the strikes were consistent and violent!
I can honestly say that I always learn something new when fishing with Curt and have been able to bring many of these best practices back to my local lakes with great success. Sometimes it takes a different approach or new trick to improve your catch quality and Curt did a great job in helping me round out my skill set.
Aside from having serious experience to uncover quality fish in even the toughest conditions, Curt is a great guy to spend a day on the lake with. The only thing I don’t like about Curt is that he gets to spend way more time on the water than I can on annual basis. I highly recommend his services to anyone!

Back in the late 90’s, I came across an article that Curt had written about bass fishing at night. His article contained lots of good information, and prompted me to begin fishing after dark.
Over the years, Curt and I have shared a boat on a few occasions. We always caught numbers of bass and had a real good time as well. This past summer, Curt and I headed out at night. I was impressed by Curt’s approach to night fishing. Moreover, Curt has a knack for finding and catching big bass at night. We caught several trophy class fish that night, and I am looking forward to our next trip.
I would recommend Curt as a bass fishing guide, especially at night… that is if you like to catch BIG bass 🙂

My son and I had a great time fishing with Curt. Curt is a true expert and helped my son and I catch a whole bunch of different fish. It was the best fishing experience I have ever had. I highly recommend fishing with Curt.
