Lake Fishing and Arizona Hunting

Captain John Stallone prefers the more extreme forms of fishing and hunting. He has always had a passion for outdoor activities and has developed a special love for bowfishing and hunting. This combination of two outdoor specialties has allowed him to hone his skills, both on the lake and in the field. 

Bowfishing is an activity where a bow, rather than a rod and reel or spear gun, is used to catch fish from any body of water. It's one of the most difficult types of fishing around due to its accuracy requirements which makes it particularly rewarding when successful. Captain John enjoys this challenge and likes pushing himself each time he goes out on the lake.

Most Suitable Guests:

John Stallone is an Arizona fishing and hunting guide who loves working with kids and large groups. He has devoted his life to providing a unique experience for suitable guests in the outdoors of Arizona. With years of experience, John's passion for teaching children about the wonders of nature is unparalleled. He is always willing to take on different challenges that arise from having kids or larger parties on his trips. John values youth in the outdoors, and offers bowfishing lessons prior to your booked fishing trip if you'd like the opportunity to test it out before you're on the hunt.

He takes every opportunity to provide guidance and support while out on an adventure and prides himself on customizing trips specifically tailored to meet each group’s needs. This makes John a great choice when it comes to introducing young people or experienced adults alike to the amazing natural world that exists around us.

Species You Can Expect:

He is one of Arizona's top fishing experts and he has set his sights on Lake Pleasant in search of the best catches. The lake is known for its largemouth bass, carp, and striped bass.

Aside from the rich fishing opportunities, Arizona is also a top destination for hunters with some of the best coyote hunting in the country. With its varied terrain, there are numerous opportunities to take down different targets such as badgers, foxes, bobcats, and even mountain lions. John enjoys predator hunts the most with guests from all over the world. His knowledge of the subject is second to none and his enthusiasm for hunting these animals is contagious.
