    I don't know what the laws are like in your state but in california you gotta get some license or get on some registered list or somethin like that to become a guide. It's weird.

    i agree with flamekeeper, but will also add that you should have your setup down pat running smooth. always antisapate a problem and have a back up plan. there is nothing more embarrassing than bombing because of an overlooked issue. as for rates, start out with what you fits your level of knowledge and what your willing to gamble. ive taken charters for reds before and ofcourse each skiff had a guide and two patrons. it was 250.per person all day and they garantee fish with absolute confidance. now that was for a salt water charter, freshwater guys that run crappie, stripers,and bass well they can get pricey to but the good ones that garantee a catch well you get what you pay for when they are confidant enough to put up or shut up. also consider your costs .good luck with your service.
